It is posited that sister earths are located at the points of constant curvature; more accurately, these are the points where two oppositely directed highways (or paths) with identical constant curvatures share a moving tangent frame where the coordinate frame is the derivative of their gravitational tensors with respect to the (x) coordinate.

To reveal these cell mechano-biological responses to substrate curvatures, we have introduced a novel, simple, and flexible class of substrates, polyacrylamide gels embedded with micro glass balls ranging in diameter from 5 mm to 2 mm, to culture cells," Yang said.
Our cell culture experiments imply that this class of substrates, micro glass ball embedded gels, can be useful tools to study cell mechano-biological responses to substrate curvatures, related cell and tissue engineering researches, and biomedical applications, such as cancer detection and treatment, and the control of stem cell differentiations, for example:"
