space and time

Time and Space

Consider that space is made up of very small cells that reproduce by splitting. Time is a tick when a particle/string exits a space cell and enters another.

Dark energy

The expansion of the universe would be explained by the space cells splitting. The further away an object is, the more reproducing space cells between the objects. Further objects would be seen as retreating faster than closer objects.


The relativity of time would be explained by a particle/string distending the space cell based upon it’s speed. The longer it took to exit the space cell, the slower it’s clock would tick.

Multiple dimensions

The multiple dimensions theorized in string theory could be explained by the space cell’s splitting. A new space cell would be a different dimension that previously existed. The new dimension may exist for a very short time until it is assimilated into the normal dimensions.

Dark matter

The unseen dark matter could consist of space cells. Space cells could be something other than nothing, even if the cell was vacant or considered a vacuum.


The appearance/disappearance of particles/strings could be explained by our detection being limited to either while the particle/string is in a space cell or while it is transition to another cell. Which could explain why we can’t determine speed and location at the same time. Speed would be determined while the particle/string is in transition, location would be determined while the particle/string is in the space cell


Nothing would be the absence of space cells. Movement would have to be from space cell to space cell. Movement would be impossible from space cell to nothing. Nothing can go on forever because there is no time in nothing.

This is a Mainstream Forum. We do not have the resources to referee or support discussions of alternative theories. If you wish to suggest such an alternative, I suggest you go to a forum that supports such discussion. One such forum is The Bad Astronomy and Universe Today (BAUT) Forum. They have a forum specifically for discussion of alternative theories, Against the Mainstream. A word of caution, if you do post there, be prepared to rigorously defend your theory.

Please read the rules before posting.
  • Alternative Theories and Conspiracy Theories
    This board concentrates on the mainstream or consensus view of cosmology. Alternative theories and conspiracy theories are not discussed here. We may decide to allow limited discussion of these at some later date. For now, however, we ask that you take these discussions to other boards that allow such discussions, such as The BAUT Forum
