This Is A Different Statement

Alex,

You said before "Space (and time) likely does not exist" and now you say "we know that experimentally (that nothing depends on location nor on the time of event)". These are two different statements. The former is one which is a statement of the existence of spacetime and the latter is the dependence of the laws of physics on particular locations in spacetime. Yes, we know the laws of physics are invariant with respect to spacetime as long as the proper symmetry transformations are carried out in the calculations, but symmetry transformations don't eliminate spacetime as a concept, do they?

Warm regards, Harv
