All experimental evidence for violation of discrete spacetime symmetries: Parity and Time reversal and the related Charge conjugation/Parity combination (P, T and CP, respectively) has been obtained on Earth in a gravitational potential that is P and T anisotropic. It is suggested that the origin of the observed CP violation is the scalar field equal to the frame dragging term dφdt in the Kerr metric of a spinning massive body. The Galaxy would be the largest such source. Indirect evidence of such an effect would be anisotropic decay products when plotted in a reference frame defined by the fixed stars. As a consequence, CP violation would be very much greater near compact astrophysical objects with large angular momentum.
