The Fabric of the Cosmos : What is Space?
This was a great doc. Just got finished watching it. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to describe the way objects create gravitational fields in space time. Right around 17 or 18 min in they do a great job of it with a pool table.

Watch this. It's worth the hour.

Just finished.

The first one has been posted before (a few times) but the second was new to me.

Thank you.

I still think the answer lies in a misinterpretation of the concept of time.

I have been musing over this thought...

A particle is measured in three dimensions but a wave is measured in four dimensions.

I'm thinking that at the start of the universe, there was no space but there were infinite time options (our time scale and many faster and slower ones too).

The small particle can exist in many time scales but when we measure it, we set the 'now' on all time scales so we think we are seeing different locations in space but really we are seeing different locations in time.

This has been bugging me for a couple of months already and I have got no further than the initial thought.

Damn you god!

I had a go at explaining it here --> http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/forum/...#pid208154

Greater minds than I (everyone here, I guess) could probably tear this apart in a few seconds. I am looking forward to it cos it would help me understand.

Most of us have seen them long ago. They're in the "Elegant nature" thread, and were on TV a long time ago.

Hey, DLJ.

I'd be happy to tear your theory apart if I understood it.

Who misrepresents the concept of time?

What's a time option and why are you suggesting that time is somehow independent from space-time?

What's a time scale?

Could you, in a positive statement, explain your theory?

Peace and Love and Empathy,

Matt

RE: The Fabric of the Cosmos : What is Space?
Ghost,
I'm not claiming this as a theory. That's too grand a notion. It was just a thought.

I got to thinking about the four observable dimensions of spacerime and was looking at a diagram that imposed a scale on each (a human construct).

Then I thought about dark matter and that it contains the majority of mass of the universe and wondered why it was not visible.

Then I thought, all stuff that is visible is visible to us 'now' but if we existed in a faster or slower scale of time (I know this is the dodgy bit) we would not see anything that existed in this time-universe but we would see stuff in the other universe's now.

I know it's a bit weird.
