    Before introducing the concept of «electromagnetic process of expansion in time and extension in space», I would like to point out that the following scientific theory, or bits and pieces therein, is self consistent and self-supporting throughout. I’ll be delighted to answer on any aspect of it or to clear any possible query. Now then, if we recall to mind Minkowski’s idea of spacetime and make an appeal to good old Pythagoras as Minkowski himself did, we may want to draw something like this:



    We must now imagine that at the intersection of the ordinate and the abscissa (origin) there exists a process something similar to what Aristotle had in mind when, in his book of physics, he wrote: «Time is therefore either a process or is somehow dependent upon a process; and since it is not the former, it must be the latter».
    Let us now go a bit further than Aristotle. Let us think of the process as being an electromagnetic process for the physical creation of Time and Space which we can easily associate to the electromagnetic spectrum. Think fast, please. If Time and Space are made by a process and are a product of nature, they have to be made in small ascending bits (no other choice). Their unit measure would therefore be very tiny at the beginning (origin) and it would reach the full length (expansion in time and extension in space) at the end (1 second = 300 million metres), hence a gradation scale such as the above spectrum to satisfy our two main requirements:
    (a) the building up of something along the ascending scale; that is, the wavelength, and
    (b) the required energy decrease along the ascending scale, energy needed for the build-up of the wavelength.
    Back to good old Pythagoras. If, for argument sake, we are standing still, as we actually are, on the intersection point of the ordinate/abscissa, then, we would experience only the temporal part of the process (imagine an expanding sinusoid going upwards along the ordinate), that is: we would get one second old for each second of the clock.
    If, as a second option, we move along the abscissa be it just walking, by car or by the fastest possible way on this planet; we would experience as well a very small part, very tiny indeed, of the spatial process and we get older slightly less; that is, our unit measure of time has become shorter with respect to someone standing still. The faster we go, the shorter will be the unit length of time.
    The third option is that in which we move at the velocity of the process, that is: if we were, hypothetically speaking, riding a ray of light, we would suffer only the spatial process. We would cover, in this case, 300 million metres of space for each second of the clock, without experiencing time and therefore without getting older.
    Yes, it isn’t what you would call orthodox thinking. It has done one thing though, we mustn’t forget it. If Time and Space are physically created by nature; that is, if they are a product of nature, as they should and appear to be, all the unanswered questions plaguing Quantum theory can be easily explained; and all the Relativity paradoxes are no longer there.
    I shall close my proposition by recalling to mind my two heros, namely: Newton and Einstein. The second one (also in importance) comes into it now with his book «The principle of Relativity» Dover Edition. A reprint of the original 1923 edition published by Methuen and Company Ltd. At page 106 he says and I quote ...If we did not satisfy this condition, we would arrive at a definition of time by the application of which time would merge explicitly into the laws of nature, and this would certainly be unnatural and unpractical unquote. There you have it. A son of his own time. A man of science strongly conditioned by the intellectual influence of Immanuel Kant. As a matter of fact, there was no scholar in those days who did not have on his desk a copy of «Kritik der reinen Vernunft». We all must agree that Kant with his «Critic to pure reason» did really have an enormous influence on the scientific and philosophical thinking of the western world. It was most unfortunate that all, and I say all, the forefathers of modern Science drank avidly from that chalice.
