Time Space Matter Characteristics

  1. Mar 19, 2013 #1
    Hey All,

    Maybe it is a dumb question, I donno, but do time, space and matter (the building block of the known universe) SHARE properties or are they COMPLETELY independent but interwoven with each other? For example, like the Union of three sets in Set Theory. Three independent entities combined to each other.

    Tank you,

    Physics is all about studying the relationship between time, space and mass (among other things). The second, meter and kilogram are fundamental units. Relations between the three are strewn throughout all theories in physics.

    But they are completely independent from each other, right? that is my question.

    Just a general answer, no need for details. Just the basics of it.
