OO and gsmollin

It's not so much a conclusion as an assumption!

Taking my layman perspective into consideration:

M-theory and others (N=8supergravity) seem(ed) to indicate that all energy is rolled/screwed up bubbling/vibrating multi-dimensional spacetime.

Relativity shows topology warping to be a fundemental condition of spacetime .

Also E=mc^2 shows an equivilance between energy and matter, matter may be constrained energy, nuclear fission and fussion - the unlocking of part of this constraint, where a portion of the 'matter' is released as energy and where some energy is constrained to make/alter matter.

I remember reading that in an earlier epoch of the universe the nuclear forces and electromagnetism were one, prior to a symmrtry breaking.

The search for a unified theory is the search to put gravity into the same basket as the other forces.

This (and more) is saying to me that matter and energy are the same 'stuff', probably multi-dimensional spacetime, existing at some level in its basic massless form with a v=c.

Mass/spin/charge etc, being a result of its constrained form within the multi-dimensionality of spacetime, where its v in our percieved 4D spacetime <c.

Though various particles in our perceived 4D spacetime travel at various v's <= c the spacetime(energy) making up these particles exists with a v of c.

Which exist in nil time and nul space, a fundemental condition where there is no dimesionality in/of spacetime in its directions of travel!

c may be a fundemental condition of spacetime and therefore anything that is of it.

c is only perceived as a velocity in our 4D's of spacetime, it may have other states in the other dimensions, do these other dimensions have to be spacial, they could be of spin, charge, quark, gravity..., they are dimensions which give shape, shape does not have to be spacial, time is not spacial but it is part of the shape of 4D spacetime, the same can be said for all the other fundemental properties of spacetime/energy/matter. The word spacetime perhaps is constraining as it hinders this perception.
