Can our universe be described with mass imbedded in space-time? Every point in space-time may or may not be occupied by an ammount of matter-energy (is the way things are conventionally thought of); but, in knowing that the density of space-time can vary, what if matter-energy is also a dimension, and is present everywhere in space-time, but can take on different values (-mass -> zero mass -> positive mass) just like the other dimensions? Every point is constantly changing according to it's location from the universal center. every universal point is one of P=(x,y,z,t,m). where m is the total mass density at that point. Being that only a finate number of configurations of known particles and/or fields(in thier own respective dynamical systems) can sum up to equal the value of "m" in the point p, there can be a probability distribution of possible matter-energy configurations at each point of space-time. So the way to describe it mathmatically at each point would involve some uncertainties much like in quantum mechanics. An extra needed invention would be a "friction" or "induction" of space-time-matter-energy changing configurations, and not necessarily opposing or enforcing change (this would be an intrinsic property of space-time-matter-energy, and could be used as a universal conversion tool from any quantity of energy in any configuration to any other). this would be needed to describe why a dynamical system of particles (such as an atom) can traverse space-time, otherwise, how would points in space-time-matter-energy "know" that they are supposed to take on different values unless a dynamical system were inducing a change of values as it moves through?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is all speculation, and I guarantee an incorrect attempt, but hopefully helps to link the concepts of matter-energy and space-time. there must be some relation of the two. I want to think that maybe all matter is simply space-time tied in knots, and there are all kinds of knots that can be made (particles) and they all are able to slide through space-time just like a slipknot can slide down a rope (of course a rope is one dimensional and the knot moves along it in a dimension of time, and our universe is seemingly 3 spacial dimensions with a dimension of time). So these "knots" known as particles have definate configurations of space and possibley time and therefore they would be like functions of space-time. They take an input of space-time (domain, or initial values, or state-space), and transform it into a different configuration (range, or functional values, or whatever) as they move through that point, and when they leave that point, they transform space-time-matter-energy back to the original configuration (domain), thus giving the appearance of a particle moving through seemingly empty space. This means that space-time itself, manifests the properties of matter-energy as it is configured in different ways. Electrons can move through a superconductor without any speed loss, and a superconductor is basically a lattice of atoms... similarly, empty space is a lattice of which matter can travel through with no speed loss. Space-time, and Matter-energy must at some level be space-time-matter-energy, perhaps at or below absolute zero and at or above the speed of light... I know I know, I've written too much incomplete thoughts...
