My idea of space

5 posts in this topic

Consider if only one particle existed, then space doesn't exists because space is something in which we can move from one point to another relative to some other particle but if only one particle existed we cannot move that particle or we can't say if its moving or stationary . But if we split that one particle into two or more space is created or space comes into existence space is nothing but a result of existence of matter

From this we can say that space cannot exist without two or more particles and space is infinite.

Your opinions.

My opinion is that this belongs in either philosophy or speculation ;)

 

Also, I see no reason why you would conclude that space is infinite.

Is there any evidential support you can offer that raises your idea beyond a Wild Ass Guess? This is what we need to develop a discussion of your idea. Without it, the wheels of your mind spin with no traction. Please provide evidence.

We can define a coordinate system for space (and time) without the presence of any particles. Therefore space-time can exist without any matter or energy. In fact, theoretical physicists sometimes use such models to understand how space-time behaves.

For example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_solution_(general_relativity)#Examples

In your model, it looks like space would only be infinite if there were an infinite number of particles. Why do you assume that is the case?

 

 

 

Your opinions.

 

Well, congratulations on being interested and imaginative. The next step is to learn a little bit more about what current models say before trying to extend or overthrow them!

It's just an idea I am not saying it's the truth that's why I asked for your opinions.
