Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Well, I guess my question as written has to be answered "No". Big Bang theorists count the development of the Universe from the big bang in nano- and atto-seconds. But all I have heard them talk about is the energy transformation in those time spans.
As for the apparent dependency of time on space, I think it may be illusory. I think space and mass are somehow tied together and brokered in terms of gravity, but I am not sure why this should be so. Psychologically, space is a variable -- a function of the postulated viewpoint of dimension. How that mirrors in the material universe, I dinna ken. Psychologically, time is sort of handy construct that says everything is the same thing as the thing it was before, just persisting., The belief in persistence is they key; it has a certain rotten flavor to it that gives it the lie. How this translates into the lovely time-phases of material spacetime I dinna ken.
And so I was curious how the Big Bang is viewed in terms of space itself. It is mindumbingly hard to think about sometimes, so I don't do it very often.
