Essay Abstract

I have seven theories that work together to explain space/time; mass/matter; gravity; inertia; the beginning of the universe without Inflation; the accelerated expansion of the universe; and the missing mass. None of the theories violate any laws of physics, thermodynamics, or relativity, or require any exotic forces, particles, or extra dimensions. However, the topic of this essay is the nature of time, so, first I will define it.

Author Bio

I am a self-employed ontologist, theologian, philosopher and skeptic, none of which generates income. So, I am a part-time entrepreneur struggling to pay my bills until hopefully, someday my quest for truth will provide enough income to be a fulltime career. I just found out about this contest, and am presently out of state for Thanksgiving. All my notes are back in Colorado, so I am writing this from memory. Since the deadline is almost here, I will attempt to give the basics very briefly.

Another way of of saying it is that any less than maxium energy density results in time. You could say the same about space, since they are the same.
