Essay Abstract

Free space has constant negative energy density. Universe is finite . Energy is created at constant rate and it comes from free space according to the law of creation of energy. The matter or energy which is created contains equal amount of positive energy and negative energy.Therefore total energy of the body is zero. This law gives information about the origin evolution and end of the universe, and this cycle continues.

Hi Ranganath

You say time and matter are in space.

Time can not be in space (as matter is) as time is man invention in order to measure motion in universe that itself is timeless.

Mr. Kulkarni, how can your assertion be falsified? If it cannot be falsified then can it be 'scientific', and, if not, physics? Thank you.

Dear Ranganath,

There is only I absolutely, everything else is relative to I.

I is the space-time itself.
