swansont Posted February 17, 2012 Share Posted February 17, 2012 Another one of those common sense things: In the realm of SOMETHING, every moving object must go through a process of Displacement and Replacement. If a baseball moves through space it is displacing SOMETHING. It simply cannot move through nothing. And as it moves, SOMETHING must replace (fill in) the space the ball previously occupied. Without the Displacement and Replacement of SOMETHING, everything would be locked into place. Common sense doesn't trump reality. What is this something that moves out of the way yet does not transfer momentum in doing so? What properties does it have? How can we detect it? I'm truly enjoying this chat, so don't get nasty. Things will probably be less mysterious if you learn some physics, but it's your responsibility to do that. It's unfortunate of you find that truth to be nasty, but I'm not going to be held responsible for your fragile ego. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
