I asked this question at AskMrPhysics and received no response so...either it's a really stupid idea/question that doesn't deserve to be answered or no one can help me with a response. I'm hoping that someone here will either let me down gently and tell me to stop asking dumb questions or help me answer this. First, I'm a physics hobbyist. I took physics in college but was not a physics major; I just have a fascination with time, space and how everything fits together. The idea/question: My idea is that space is a result of the flow of time, similar to how the flow of electricity causes magnetic fields (right hand thumb rule and so on). I thought this might be a reason for the supposed curvature of space because it flows in a circular 'field' at nn degrees (if we 'slice' the flow of time arbitrarily) around the time 'flow'. It might also give a small explanation to how the universe expanded faster than the speed of light directly after the Big Bang - if the Big Bang wasn't an explosion of space but rather an explosion of time with space being the result of the 'sudden' flow of time. The question is - how would I prove or disprove this experimentally? Or even mathematically?
