You must know that they are defined. Anyway, Newton made a lot of mistakes. I don't like his attitude that completely destroyed science.
If that is your belief then please post the definition of space since you seem to be alone in your belief.

I don't say these things on whim but have given them much thought over the last 30 years and have a book or two on subject.

I eagerly await your response. :)

Ok science says that.. then science says that. Who am I to argue. I don't say that.
Pincho...........................But that's the problem, your points are all argumentative. If you ever expect people to consider your ideas, you'll need to express them in ways that are not seen as condescending. To date, you've shown little respect for the views of others, how can you expect others to offer you any consideration while offering them so little yourself?

Especially when it comes to proper nettiquette. One doesn't attempt to correct grammar or spelling. When I said to define a concept I didn't mean a word. To me space and time are concepts, not just words. That's why I chose that phrasing.

And one doesn't go around claiming thsat Newton made a lot of mistakes without being clear on what they mean by that. Newton was a true genius. We all make mistakes but to say that about his ideas is misleading. For what was known at the time Newton was spot on.

My reply does not help this thread. Only what you are used to reading in books helps. Most of science is about the psychology of the people reading the science.

To read a book of physics is not enough to understand it. It have to be *studied*. After this process, one realizes why things have to be that way and not in another.
Some people don't get this difference because it has only read, and not studied, those books...

People never will get my theory until I program it, so I don't bother using it as an example.

Here's the example...

1 + -1 = 0

Nobody gets what that means (it's the answer to the thread), so read a book instead.

Pincho, we've asked you before to stop plugging your theory outside of New Theories.  Future posts doing so will be deleted.

Since when does nobody understand that exrpession. All mathematicians were trained on it. "-1" is the additive inverse of "1". It's the number you have to add to 1 to get the additive identity "0."
