What is Called Space?

  1. Jul 28, 2004 #1
    What is this thing we call space?

    All things that we sense with our fives senses have the property mass. Why? Because, objective mass is necessary to cause the chain of action and reaction from environment to sense to thought.

    All things we sense only with instruments have the property mass. Why? Because, obejective mass is necessary to cause the chain of action and reaction from environment to instrument to sense to thought.

    All things that come to the mind must come first through the five senses.

    So, what is space?

    space

    Its the relation of some stuff to other stuff. Or is it stuff in its own right?

    Spatiomaterialism assumes that space is a substance by our definition, for it assumes that each part of space has both the essential and the existential aspects of the nature of substance as substance. The parts of space are all the locations in a single, three dimensional space.

    I would think that since space has the property of bending and limiting speed, then it has a substance of its own. Property=substance.

    Gravity does that but then gravity is part of space.
