Some Observations about Space – Time

This short piece presents some esoteric thoughts I observed from readings on Space – Time. I expect these ramblings will be refined with further reading, but this is so far what I could glean. There are two videos below which I have referred to in previous articles that are my precursors for delving into this:
1. The Secrets of Quantum Physics – BBC Four
2. The Physics and Philosophy of Time – Carlo Rovelli

Personally, it took me some time to digest these points; but they struck me when I thought I understood them. So here goes:

Space – Time is 4 dimensional. Space is 3 dimensional – length, breadth and height. Time is the 4th dimension. There is no gravitational force in Space – Time. Gravitational field is actual Space – Time (curved) and the electromagnetic field is located within it.

Time is nature’s way of ensuring that not everything happens at once‘. Our current reality is here; in a cross-section of time from a 5th dimensional vantage point. Could God (or The Logos according to Greek Philosophy) be that which created time – life?

Without mass travelling through Space then there would be no time to observe. Mass that is not moving is not creating time. So if everything stood still and the Earth stopped rotating at midnight then there would be no time.

Mass needs Space to travel in, so that we can measure and label it. If not, everything would exist in the eternal – here and now.
