Nature of Space & Time

In science, time and space get represented in many ways. Most people in the world have some familiarity with the most famous of these formulations, that of Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity, wherein he proposed that space and time formed an indissoluble unity, tied together by the complex mathematics of differential geometry.

While elegant conceptually, all of these ideas do not address the experiential nature of time, which actually has profound depth and many different states. In some states time as we know it ceases to exist, in others space also disappears. While still controversial from a scientific perspective, seeming reversals of the arrow of time have been demonstrated in laboratories and sociologically for some years, including such “anomalous” phenomena as telepathy and precognition.

I do not know that I could write an opus on the subject, but perhaps time and space function in much the same way as the rest of the universe - displaying more or less regular patterns in many ways, but also refusing to be “placed in a box”.
