The idea of certain particles not being fundamental is familiar to us. We’ve gone from the atom to the proton to the quark, and now to strings. But what about the idea of space not being fundamental? Is this something that you are convinced by? Explain your answer.
One of the fundamentals of our world might be that very energy that always has driven what we call space, beginning with the (trans-)formation (creation) of energy to space (in 9 spatial dimensions). Beginning with the inflationary phase of the Big Bang and continuing at a lower level today, energy transforms into space, still driving the universe apart, time being one of the intrinsic properties of space itself, which might be called “reactivity” of space, i.e. defining the smallest possible action, which we know as Planck’s constant.
