This post will follow up and build off a previous post on the four states of space. In the four states of space it is conjectured that the basic building blocks of the universe can be dealt with by only utilizing space as a concept. In that theory, space is organized by a 2 x 2 matrix into space as empty, filled, moving or stationary. This post attempts to further simplify that 2 x 2 matrix into a dichotomy of space as either contracting or expanding. Let’s be as parsimonious as possible and reduce four states to a dichotomy.
Research has inferred that the universe is expanding. Let’s take that assumption and apply it to the 2 x 2 matrix model and the theory of space. Does the expansion of space apply to empty space while contraction applies to filled space (mass) being determined by gravity? An added concept is as empty space is moving/expanding that this is our definition of time (Empty space in motion = time). And is the contraction of filled space (mass) ultimate result a black hole where gravity is at its ultimate as defined by a singularity where time no longer exists because pure space is truly stationary.
Is it possible to reduce the theory of space as defined by its four states to the delicate balance between the dichotomy of expansion and contraction? Think of our universe as a single slice of infinite flat possibilities within a sphere which expands out from the center in all directions but reaching an other limit as gravity overtakes expanding empty space (black holes are greater than the number of stars) and then contracts to a singularity and repeats the whole process all over again. Another random single flat slice within the sphere.
