Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / Re: How would we know whether space,time or spacetime were continuous or discrete?« on: 12/06/2022 17:52:36 »
. I suspect geordief likes these continued discussionsYes he does.It takes me a lot of effort to follow the replies ,though after my question has been answered in the main.
And I may no longer be able to contribute but I follow as far as I can.
I find the world as built up of "events" rather than objects /systems evolving in time very interesting and find the former to be equally acceptable (more so actually) on an intuitive level.
Apparently spacetime is a model designed to be just a coordinate system (a local one) without any objects necessarily occupying any particular location but I have also wondered if those locations could be populated by real events.(ie if the real events could define the location in spacetime)
Seems ,maybe it can be one or the other but not both at the same time?
