Four Dimensions of Space

This brief 2 x 2 matrix will introduce a new way of thinking about space in four dimensions based upon if space is filled or empty and if it is stationary or in motion. This matrix is based upon several papers written previously in describing the different states of space. This matrix builds upon those papers and attempts to put all those ideas into a more simplified 2 x 2 matrix depicted below.

Four Dimensions of Space Matrix

Space is either filled or empty. It either has visible mass or not. Space can also be either in motion or stationary. When we observe space in all these possible combinations in the above matrix, it is proposed that certain results occur, such as time and gravity based upon which state of space is observed.

This matrix re-defines the dimensionality of space from being thought of as a three-dimensional concept with time added in as the fourth dimension. In this matrix, space is the key concept with no need for a time dimension or gravity. They are both defined by the various states or dimensions of space. This helps to simplify the conceptual lens when looking at the fundamental cornerstones of reality.

This Four Dimensions of Space matrix hopefully can provide a different approach to philosophically approaching time and space and ultimately the basic tenets of existentialism.
