Has anyone dealt with general relativity? What are the prerequisite maths you need?

Tensor Calc

Smooth Manifolds

Riemannian Geometry

Also being good at working with PDEs is useful considering almost everything you study in GR revolves around EFEs and their solutions.

light goes woo when gravity goes woooo and then your get compressed like wo and then you throw a baseball out of a car like weee

Why would you waste time on that? In general relativity gravity doesn't change from the Newton's law to bended space. It is both.

What?

>>

so how does one determine which way to orient the spatial felt?

Between two systems the answer seems obvious: set the horizontal so that both systems are given influence proportional to their mass. Same could be said about 3 systems, just create a plan that encompasses them.

But what about 4+?

That pic of yours sucks ass. It doesn't sescribe gravity wholly.
