Why do we need a caveat to what we see as 3-D plus time or 4D spacetime?
And the answer again is: Because this is a wave universe.
Let's take a look at what we call 3-D plus time or 4D spacetime.
4-D spacetime consists of one Dimension of time together with three Dimensions of space.
In the previous Why do we have 3-D plus time or 4D spacetime? we saw the following:
It is this scalar wave resonance that also determines our one dimensional aspect of what we perceive as time.
Space is determined, not by a scalar aspect but the vector aspects that Feynman searched for. . The three dimensions of space are simple transverse wave relationships:
But what now must be realized is, if this is so then there is one more extremely important wave relationship we have not yet covered:
Paramount in quantum theory is the fact that you cannot observe without interfering with what you are observing. . And this is where the oscillator factor of the reference frame comes into the picture.
It is the observer's local oscillator frequency that mixes with and destroys/changes the element being observed.
The oscillator factor is of supreme importance: You have two oscillators built inside you picking up your surrounding wave spectrum just like a superheterodyne radio receiver has an oscillator built inside it for picking up the radio wave spectrum.
Your SPACE reference frame is being determined by your transverse wave oscillator mixing with frequencies emanating from h or Planck's constant.
There is no such thing as space-time per se in this all wave universe.
A certain SPACE only exists in the eye of the beholder and this will be determined by the beholder's TRANSVERSE wave oscillator frequency.
A certain TIME only exists in the eye of the beholder and this will be determined by the beholder's SCALAR wave oscillator frequency.
Your TRANSVERSE oscillator frequency mixing with frequencies emanating from h or Planck's constant is giving you your own particular concept of SPACE.
Your SCALAR wave oscillator frequency (your proper clock time) is giving you your own particular concept of TIME.
As long as these oscillator frequencies stay the same and the surroundings stay the same and you remain on the same motion geodesic then the space-time interval will remain the same and you will be able to use all your present science and math to determine whatever you like between you and others with similar attributes.
But if any of the above changes then the space-time interval may change and all your science and math could be worthless to you because you are trying to look into a different dimension or another space-time realm with an entirely different space-time interval.
Someday people will use Occam's razor and see it this way:
Special relativity may be used where space and time change but where the space-time interval is absolutely invariant and remains the same.
General relativity is used where the space-time interval varies slightly
Gauge theory, as in quantum theory, is used where the space-time interval varies appreciably.
However, this is NOT quite the way it is now seen.
But the main concept, in all of this, is that space-time is all in the eye of the beholder
There is no such thing as space-time per se. . Space-time is being determined by a mixing of the beholder's oscillator frequencies with the surrounding all wave universe.
And there's more: a bit more to think about
