Believe me, there are few places more in need of scientific explanations than places like this!

You've mentioned general relativity offering a way to explain inertia(as resistance to changes in motion).
From my limited knowledge a classical model is the Mach's principle. But it has issues due to action at distance. Another idea I've heard of assumes a finite particle size and acceleration induced stress as the cause of inertia.
Could you elaborate a bit more on inertia? Maybe even in a separate thread? Feel free to correct my statements above. Btw I am ok if you use math if required. Thanks.
