Essay Abstract

Einstein considered space-time as a structural quality of gravitational field. Idea here is that space-time is observer effect formed into the process of measurement of duration, speed and numerical order of material change that run into gravitational field.

Dear Amrit,

it is a pity for me to read your essay submitted back in Oct. only today. It appears interesting from the point that you have made an attempt to connect, Physics with consciousness and the human mind. Your picture is not popular is another matter. To me , it does seem an off-beat innovation not widely accepted yet!

You may care to go to my essay here as also two other MSS of mine posted on the essay site. It talks about my personal experience about ' Science Interface with Spirituality' . You may consider the latter as a 'consciousness' that is a kind of higher degree of awareness that lies at the boundary of human awareness and what one may call universal/cosmic/pure consciousness. The latter permeates everything in the Universe and may well have given rise to the Physical Universe that we' see' around us. There is another MSS that i also happen to post on my essay site " Inconstancy of the Physical Constants and the Strengths of the Force/Fields". These two manuscripts preceded my essay here " Mysteries of the Universe- a perspective". As the competition is closing now and voting ends too on Dec., 15, may be we can discuss some mutual points of interest through the Internet, my ID is

Dear Dr. Sorli,

Interesting vision about spacetime as being an observer effect. I understand that you connect the atemporal block spacetime view with the measurements in a gravitational field. Indeed, we cannot separate them, and our theories are just the way we structure the information we gather.

Best regards,

Cristi Stoica

Dear Cristi

space-time is a math model only into which we describe motion in atemporal space. Time is a "coordinate of motion" and describes motion of objects and particles into atemporal space. We humans experience atemporal space as present momemt.

Hello Amrit,

I appreciate your essay and find myself becoming more and more interested in the singular, instantaneous existence model which describes "now" versus the "block time" models. A very enjoyable read.

I hope to obtain funding to refine the assessment criteria, (and develop a glossary and project plan), and I believe that the phenomenology of time view which you propose would fare well under these criteria. I look forward to investigating these ideas in greater depth.

Thanks for sharing them!

When i was in 8th class, i read about Eisenstein and that time i did not understand his theory and i thought its all are bullshit. But now i am sorry to Eisenstein. I am really impress with his space time theory. I have an informative blog https://windowsclassroom.com/disk-cleanup-windows-10/ and i will surely post about his theory on that.
