Space refers to a concept. Just an idea
Space lacks form.
Space does not exist.
Space does not contain or impart form to the assumed fundamental physical entity or first form. The fundamental entity or any object whatsoever does not depend upon a human concept called space for its form or existence. The fundamental entity is finite, bound of itself, self-contained. It is just there. Res Ipsa Loquens.
Literally it is impossible for an object to fill up space. This is like saying stones fill up justice.
Space does not need to be postulated to explain dynamic or static physical concepts such as light, gravity, electricity, magnetism, ionization, strong force, weak interaction, inertial mass, critical density, etc. Void is a concept some people use but I don't remember using it to explain electron, or magnetic field or light, or gravity, or inertial mass, or critical density or proton or electricity, or magnetism or ionization or stellar evolution or neutron. I've never drawn void in my illustrations. All I draw is Thread. All I need is an object or objects to work with. And that is all Mother Nature needs. All I use in my assumptions and explanations are objects. What is all this talk about void?
None of the philosophical thought I admire has anything to do with void. Void is for fools who cannot trace back to the fundamental entity. Those who cannot wield the concept void are void. Newton postulated absolute void as an intellectual band-aid and now Neo-Geocentrists drool over his absolute void. In ether theory void contains the ether.
Space is an illusion. At best it is a useful conceptual tool, a mathematical tool or can be used in ordinary language to streamline discussions. I don't think there is anything wrong with this just as long as people understand that space is just an idea that cannot possibly exist and DO. This concept can never be taken literally to have form, substance, perform causal actions, undergo change effects, or interact with any sort of physical objects. A concept called space cannot perform the verb extend. The assumed fundamental object called Thread, does not extend into a concept called space. A concept (void) cannot perform the verb extend. The Thread, an object, does not extend into a concept (void). Concepts such as void do not begin or end. Human apes only dream void and worship void and spend long nights troubled by void. And then start long useless books about void.
Space cannot bend, inflate, warp, etc. because it is just an idea. Its all in your head. A zombie. Strictly speaking it is impossible to travel across space. This would be akin to saying a bird travels across love. Space cannot be created or annihilated because it refers to a concept that lacks form. Space cannot BE or DO. When objects come closer together or go farther apart, space does not increase or decrease, but the physical mediator that connects them changes.
To me it is debatable whether this concept called space even belongs in physics, since in physics I presumably study objects and their causal relations which are always mediated by objects. A physical hypothesis and theory IMHO begins with an object and seeks to explain how that object works. When we trace back to the fundamental entity, I assume that this fundamental entity does not rely on space to operate since it does not conceptualize like humans.
I have never claimed to have seen space, observe space or test space. Again I have never postulated space. I have never drawn space to illustrate a physical object or physical concept such as electron. I do not measure space. Billion dollar satellites built by NASA on the public funds do stupid works like measuring space.
Space is the whore of philosophers and weak minds. Space is for Star Trek and Star Wars and Einstein. Void is for NASA who thinks they will save this human race by sending us into the void. Void is for Rutherford who thought most of what we think of matter is void. Void is for people whose brains relate void all day. Void is the whore of philosophers and weak minds. Void is sexy sci fi. Void is for an intellectually bankrupt Western society.
And I'm not in any way implying that space is not a useful conceptual tool in math, engineering, communication, and day to day life. Humans use this concept with breathtaking efficiency.
Thread (the assumed single closed loop continuous fundamental entity)
It is just when we start probing the most profound problems of physics and philosophy that space shows its true colors. Space is unmasked. Space DOES NOT impart form to the Thread. This is complete nonsense. Concepts like space do not impart form to objects, let alone the fundamental physical object. This is elementary.
I just assume the Thread has a unique Form or is the First Form. What is the single closed looped Thread made out of? I don't know. Call it Threadium or Paulium. Or just ask God. The Thread is a monolithic object, a plenum, a genius stroke of architecture, a web of delight. Twined Thread emanates from atoms in all directions. Entanglement, the death knoll of quantum ideas is easily explained with Thread and there are several possibilities. E.g. a half or full twist of an electron thread will eventually twist the entire adjacent EM Thread in opposite directions (CW & CCW). Each twist is a quantum. The twined Thread connecting atoms are like worlds. And there are many.
Some smart and respectable philosophers of the past flirted with this hypothetical object giving it different names like First Form, Simple Entity, Substance, etc. Gaede comes along and assumes a twined Thread to explain the H atom, light, gravity, electricity, magnetism and proton. Then CERN reconstructs an image of Gaede's hypothesized proton formed of crisscrossing Thread. The Thread is an ultimate Empire strikes back.
Thread intersects to a critical density thus imparting form to hydrogen atoms. Atoms take on two or more locations via twined Thread. A proton is a dynamic structure. As they move, perhaps protons continually take in a feed of twined Thread to maintain critical density. As they shift into critical density they charge their Thread and torque the twined EM Thread emanating to all atoms. As they shift out of critical density double helical electron thread collapses and feeds links to the twined EM Thread connecting all atoms. Atoms vibrate sending high amp torsion waves along the Thread. Atoms work together to form to stars, molecules, etc. via the twined Thread connecting them. Protons and Neutrons rotate about an axis weaving double helical electron thread (or magnetic fields) that can shoot out for light years, across galaxies and maybe even from galaxy to galaxy. Double helical electron threads emanating from magnets cut into objects, torque other protons to form new magnetic fields or simply twist them tighter and on and on to eternity. A magnetic field could also penetrate to protons in a wire, hold them, push and pull on. If they are torquing them creating waves along the electric axles which burst out into electron thread of the next atom and so on to eternity.
