Welcome to space matters!

What is the nature of space? What is the nature of matter? Is matter made of space? Why does matter behave the way in which it does? What is dark matter? What is dark energy? What causes gravity?

This site offers my hypothesis for the answers to these questions:

Space is real and substantial and is changing incessantly. Things are patterns of space which retain their identity because the patterns persist. That is, the world has an event ontology in which everything is made of space and is constantly changing. That is, space, matter, the world are all dynamic. The world we perceive is dynamic patterns of space.

The answers that I offer here are for the serious consideration of readers. I am not saying that they are the correct answers, although of course I think they are.

Anyway, have a look and see what you reckon.


As with all philosophy, this is a journey of inquiry; enjoy the journey!
