1. ## Dimensions and Directions.

Wait there are things that exist that have no length, no width, and no height? That's one of the funniest things I've ever heard.
2. ## New Thought on The Universe.

Of course something cannot exist in nothing, since there is nothing there for it to exist in. Objects aren't made of space(nothingness) they are separated by it.
3. ## Definitions

Hey that raises a good question, is there a science dictionary?
4. ## Gravity as Tension

How does the equation represent movement if non of it's terms involve movement?
5. ## Definitions

Perhaps I should have specified that I was looking for what you guys think the scientific definitions of these words are. By scientific definitions I mean ones that are non-contradictory and can be used consistently. For me: Exist: physical presence Object: that which has shape Space: that which lacks shape Universe: all the objects that exist
6. ## Gravity as Tension

I think I see now, the distance in Newton's Second Law is the distance-traveled by one object(dynamic, like a movie), while the distance in Newton's Gravitational Equation is the distance between two objects(static like a photo).
7. ## Gravity as Tension

Scratch that it just dawned on me.
8. ## Gravity as Tension

Maybe I'm missing something here but I don't see how mass is motion, or how distance is motion, or how the gravitational constant is motion.
9. ## Where Does Space End? It Must End Somewhere!

That depends how you define space. If I define space as that which doesn't have shape, then space has no borders, since borders only apply to objects(that which has shape). For anyone who claims space has shape, what gives shape to space? What contours it?
10. ## Gravity as Tension

I define it as static since there is no motion involved.
11. ## Gravity as Tension

Is acceleration not the change in velocity over time? If nothing is moving then there is no acceleration.
12. ## Gravity as Tension

So a(acceleration?) = G(universal gravitational constant?) times m(mass?) divided by r^2(radius?) None of those terms involve motion.
13. ## quantized unit of force.

Well first you should define quantum and force. Quantum is a continuous particle, while force is a mathematical concept relating to motion. So what you're asking is if there is a particle of a concept. Seeing that concepts are relationships amongst objects the question becomes easy to answer. No.
14. ## Gravity as Tension

Since force is dynamic I've been wondering why gravity is called a force. Something like: F = ma <---dynamic since it involves acceleration F = GMm/R² <---static since no motion is involved Shouldn't it be: Tension = GMm/R²
15. ## Definitions

I was wondering what the people on this forum define the following words as: exist - object - space - universe -
