: : No they do not. In general relativity local space-time is always flat and therefore by definition the properties of space-time do not change.

: understood... however, how are the constants : of permeability and permitivity derived from : space, other than just measuring vacuum as a constant.

: What makes the constant of P/P what they are? : What are they directly corrolated to?

: The mass density of the cosmos, perhaps?

Isn't P/P dependant on the speed of light? I believe:

Permittivity constant= 1/(speed of light squared x permeability constant)
