From the responses and research I did based on the responses received here, I understand it would be pointless. You're a real math person, so please tell me. If something physical (like time, just as an example) does not really "fit" into predefined categories of mathematical analysis involving algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, complex numbers, vector algebra, quaternions, tensors, linear algebra, discrete math, Lie groups, gauge physics, Noether's theorem, etc, what unmitigated gall or arrogance is it about mathematicians that makes any of them think that they ALWAYS can shoehorn a mismatched observation or data type into something they already know? Why is it are they likely to ignore even valid observations when their math doesn't explain even half of what is observed? I thought I understood this culture. Evidently, I don't. I think that time / space is a directed scalar similar in some ways to the Poynting vector but with the element of rotation in every direction added. It (time) allows movement in only one temporal direction, and that direction is the same direction as the propagation of real or virtual energy, bound or unbound. This constraint has no effect on space because energy can rotate/propagate in any direction (backwards, forwards), but that is not the same thing as actually propagating in reverse. Time or space stretches or shrinks based on state of motion, or proximity to other bound or unbound energy. What mathematical analysis of any kind would you suggest that handles that, preferably WITHOUT tossing in every different sized hammer in the bag, or knife in the tool pouch (because that generally confounds understanding instead of helping it). This last question is for BWS only, because I never replied. The rest of you, please refrain from having another go at it. I will ignore the rest of you bags of assorted mathematical hammers if I need to.
