Space Is Not A Thing
Premise: Area is NOT a factor. Area has no construction or substance. Area is a psychological idea of the human thoughts that we use to image the imaginary container actual stuff resides in. I discover no credibility within the various, that space-is-a-thing with construction and substance. Why? This is why!
Each experiment has failed to indicate proof for space-as-a-thing.
However the huge no-no is that space-as-a-thing violates the First Legislation of Thermodynamics. If the usual mannequin of cosmology is right, then the Massive Bang occasion created space-as-a-thing from scratch; from completely nothing. Although postulated as a given, nobody has but to provide you with an enough and even credible how that occurred and even may occur. Worse, that course of is ongoing. Recall that the late Sir Fred Hoyle was bucketed for advocating the Regular State Universe which required the creation of matter from nothing – one thing like one atom of hydrogen per cubic mile per 12 months or some such order of magnitude determine akin to that. Hoyle may give no mechanism. In fact his retort was that the alternate Massive Bang occasion created every part from nothing unexpectedly, once more with none mechanism given, however that was apparently okay whereas his creation from nothing wasn’t. Properly creation from nothing is NOT okay in any cosmology.
I actually should admire the audacity of some cosmologists of their well-liked writings. In a single chapter they’ll state the First Legislation of Thermodynamics about how vitality (therefore matter) can’t be created or destroyed however solely modified from one type into one other. In different phrases, there isn’t any such factor as a cosmic free lunch; you possibly can’t create one thing from nothing. But in one other chapter they’ll word how the vitality density of the cosmos is unchanging or how it’s a fixed, despite the fact that the Universe is increasing. That instantly contradicts the First Legislation of Thermodynamics. Since space-as-a-thing interprets into the creation of darkish vitality and darkish vitality interprets again into the creation of space-as-a-thing (every creating extra of the opposite out of completely nothing) that is a free cosmic lunch. They – cosmologists – contradict themselves. If they do not understand they’ve accomplished it, they do not need to be in academia. In the event that they understand this contradiction with out commenting on identical, they need to be kicked out of academia.
So if you’re advocating space-as-a-thing then you might be advocating the creation of one thing from nothing due to this fact advocating that the First Legislation of Thermodynamics is being negated at the same time as I write and as you learn. Good luck with that premise.
Movement, and variations thereof (acceleration, deceleration, momentum, rotation, and many others.) is totally impartial of space-as-a-thing and even of space-as-a-not-thing. Recall that well-known early twentieth Century “New York Instances” editorial that rocket journey was pure bunk on the grounds that in house there was nothing for the rocket’s exhaust to push in opposition to. That editorial was retracted on the day of the Moon touchdown! So house journey through rocket-ship is feasible even when house is NOT a factor since all related forces function independently of the existence or non-existence of house. If one persists in attempting to hyperlink movement and space-as-a-thing, discover an equation that includes movement that additionally has space-as-a-thing as one of many required parameters.
Twenty Questions (give or take): If space-is-a-thing…
Why the phrase “the vacuum of house”? What ‘factor’ do it’s a must to take away from house to be able to obtain an ideal vacuum? What’s the ‘factor’ composed of? What’s its chemistry? Since it’s proper in entrance of your nostril, what does it odor like? Might you stick out your tongue and style the ‘factor’ that makes house a factor? What different properties does it have that you simply (or instrumentation) can detect? What are the related particles, forces and fields that make space-as-a-thing strut its stuff? What’s the density of house? If house has a density then may we in principle fly like a chicken to the Moon if we may assemble a pair of wings giant sufficient? How does space-as-a-thing alter the usual mannequin of particle physics? Would the Universe be any completely different at present if the thing-ness of house had by no means existed? If that’s the case, how would it not be completely different and if that had been the case would possibly you not even be right here to fret about it? In different phrases, is the thing-ness of house required or important to your personal existence? Might we with our superior applied sciences change the character of that ‘factor’ property of house by some bodily course of or different? Is the thing-ness of house a useful resource that we may make use of akin to how we may mine the asteroid belt for sources? The speed-of-light is slower in glass than in water, and slower in water than in air and slower in air than in house, so if house is a factor would the speed-of-light be even quicker than it’s now if you happen to may take away the thing-ness from house?
Proof That Area Is Not A Factor
If house had been a factor, then nothing may transfer. A state of nothingness has to exist, together with a state of one thing (the usual mannequin of particle physics and ensuing emergent stuff like atoms, molecules and human beings), to ensure that these some-things to get from Level A to Level B unhindered. If house had been a factor then the some-things half and parcel of the usual mannequin can be akin to 100 folks jammed into a typical elevator (or raise), or say 200 folks crammed onto a what must be outlined as a crowded bus. You could not transfer from the again of the elevator to the entrance; from the again of the bus to the entrance door of the bus. There is not any state of nothingness for the folks on the again to maneuver by. You possibly can solely transfer as a result of there may be some nothingness so that you can transfer into or shove different stuff into to make room for you. If house is a factor then there isn’t any nothingness in any respect within the Universe; the Universe is totally filled with stuff (the usual mannequin plus space-as-a-thing) and no movement is feasible.
Anybody who advocates that space-is-a-thing has to put on the burden of proof on their shoulders and supply not less than some strong slab-in-the-lab proof. Both that or they need to stop prattling on about it as if the idea of space-as-a-thing was set in stone and the matter of the character of house was now settled for all eternity. It isn’t settled.
