The effect is REALLY small: In 300km height it is about 1 millisecond per year. You will not live percievably longer if you fly a lot. Thats only the effect of those boring flights and the check-ins and -outs..

I have a feeling gravity is its own dimension. Then again, if you study theoretical physics for as long as I have it will drive you crazy, so crazy you will just grasp onto any straw that might be the answer.
Have fun on your journey, keep me updated if you figure anything out.

i dont know if this relates at all but one thing ive personally wondered about, is the experience of an astronaut chilling in space, say between the earth and the moon.. because they would be in space, and the planetery bodies surrounding them would be moving and rotating through space very quickly..earth moves around sun 67,000 miles per hour,.,. solar system together moving around the galaxy 490,000 miles per hour...
so a person chilling in space, how would these speeds of extreme movement effect them.,,. are the objects so large and lack of reference points not allow them to perceive the crazy speeds,, or are the forces of gravity, and the system so stable that the space between the bodies is mechanically locked in a way...

That is exactly what I believe and I call it the 5th dimension. The Gravity dimension is outside of our dimension, yet gravity is also contained in every single atom in our Universe. Inner and Outer Gravity!
The 5th dimension of gravity also accompanies another 4 dimensions of SpaceTime, parallel to the one we know, and on and on.
Gravity is the ultimate cohesive factor of all of the Cosmos, spatially and temporally.
The Cosmos is an endless series of repetitive 4-D Universes, pulled together by Cosmic Gravity, in a timeless Mobius loop.
I'm not quite crazy yet, (afaik), but I'm writing a book on this before I flip my coin!

No because matter is in our 3 dimensional plane of existance.

Would gravity be the so called "dark matter"?

Gravity bends the underlying structure of spacetime, compressing it as you get closer to the source of the gravitation. Alternately, gravitation could be understood as a compression of spacetime that will change the angle of velocity of anything traveling through it and this will be interpreted by us as if a force is acting to change the path of an object.
If spacetime is compressed, there is a dilation effect that makes time pass more rapidly close to the gravitational source.
The amount of time compressed by the gravity of the Earth is very small and so you would need a highly accurate clock just to determine that there was a time dilation effect.
As I understand it, the experiment used a pair of synchronized atomic clocks, one of which was taken from ground level, up to the top of a large skyscraper and was then returned some significant time later to ground level. The clocks when compared showed that the clock at ground level had gained a tiny compared with the one that was raised to the top of the building.

The space shuttle orbited earth at around 17,500 mph did that slow the aging of the astronauts on board?

The altitude that they traveled at slowed their clocks in relation to ones that stayed on the ground but the velocity that they traveled at relative to the clocks on the ground would have sped the clocks up by a small amount.
Thing is, the gravitational dilation would probably have exceeded the compression of timespace due to velocity.
