Is ''empty'' space attracted to ''empty'' space?
« on: 14/12/2015 11:50:13 »
We call a distance divider between two masses , space, space surrounds all matter, matter is submerged in space, matter is completely covered but not obscured from observation by space, while light is present in that space.

When an object moves or is moved, space seemingly instantly fills the ''space'' where the object was, is space attracted to space??????????????

Spacetime is continuous. What you describe above never happens.
What I mean by that is the situation is never such that in step one matter moves and in step two space moves in to a vacated spot.
Matter is also mostly space. So when matter moves no connection of space is ever broken. It may stretch behind the motion of matter, it may compress ahead of that motion but continuity is never broken.

Is Spacetime attracted to Spacetime? Is not a logical question when Spacetime is never disconnected from Spacetime..

Hope that helps.
