Loop Quantum Gravity Derives Space

Eric,

Take a look at the theories called Loop Quantum Gravity with derive space and even spacetime from little loops of space atoms. On that basis, space is not emptiness but an actual thing.

Not sure if on that basis you can say that time is a thing. It's more like space undergoes processes for which time is a convenient measure.

Interesting to me at least is that in Theosophy and other mystic based religions or faiths, space and time exist in a thing called the Askaski records in which certain realized humans and other non-physical beings can explore the past in any detail desired. Hypnosis is consistent except it is thought that the storage is in the brain rather than in some supernatural medium. Maybe hypnosis gives access to these records, at least the portions that are personal.

The future cannot be so explored as the records are being written as we type. But prediction based on probabilities is possible. In fact, many predictions cover all possibilities, like Nostradamus and Revelations.
