Space? Time?

sand81

The terms ‘space’ and ‘time’ leave me feeling hollow. Even when strung together in the mock highbrow space-time-continuum, the words themselves lack resonance, especially considering the ideas they represent are supposed to be the fundamental, if least understood, building blocks of the universe. The more I think about it, the more it seems possible that neither exist at all and that the words trap us into a narrow way of thinking; that the words are merely proxies for something else altogether.

I suggest we abandon the words space and time until someone can prove their existence, and make a fresh start by coming up with a new explanation, hopefully one with a more prosaic name.

  1. Good one, Jack. I like ‘sauce’ too, or salsa, or gravy. Let’s get some theoretical physicists on board, huh?
