Substance of Space


Please see Course on Subject Clearing

To me, the Scientific Method, as applied to metaphysics, would be

(1) Looking at an inconsistency.

(2) Then discovering a more fundamental consistency.

That is what Einstein did, which resulted in the Theory of Relativity. But that work is not complete yet. The established fact is that the speed of light in space is constant. However, this gives rise to an inconsistency when we think of space as not being a medium. Space must have certain properties to constrain the speed of light to a constant value.

The old concept of ether was rejected by scientists, but that concept has emerged again in the form of Higgs field recently. There are also the ideas of invisible dark energy and dark matter. All this points to space having some kind of fabric.

After Einstein, we see electromagnetic radiation as a substance different from matter, to which Maxwell’s equations apply that are different from Newton’s laws of motion.

A time has come to see space as a substance different from both electromagnetic radiation and matter, to which a still new sets of laws apply. We may call this substance “gravitational radiation.”

    Glad to see a thread-space on the right vector.

    My own think on this is that:

    1) the Higgs field must have pre-existed the physical part of the universe

    2) the Higgs field is likely bounded, i.e. finite in size but still vastly bigger than the physical part

    3) the physical portion of the universe most likely was CAUSED by an initiated condensation of a point in the Higgs field.

    4) that initiated condensation was probably close to the form posited for the big bang

    5) some exploding stars may give hint to the form or shape of the big bang

    6) the shape of the physical universe may explain the lack of anti-matter in this part of the physical universe

    I believe that energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation is the disturbance propagated in the fabric of space.

    I now believe that the fundamental factor is not space but MOTION. Space is a factor of motion and so is time. The motion seems to feed upon itself (energy) and gradually acquires inertia. Thus, mass comes about.

      Vin: Thus, mass comes about.

      CT: If we run this movie backwards, I believe that if we want to describe the beginning as a singularity, then the very next simplest statement to describe the very next thing that manifests itself is, “That is space-time.” I want to say (a few times) just to keep it out there that I believe that all matter, energy, and including any and all types of dark matter are condensed qualities of space-time. Not disagreeing with your relative motion statements, which I find sensible. I think I am tying together both yours and 2X conjectures together with that the basic motion is time.

    We now know that body acts as the interface between the physical energy of the external universe and the metaphysical energy of the internal universe. The sense organs and the cells of the body somehow convert energy from physical to metaphysical state.
