I thought that point was evidently clear, although on the same issue, I still see the point as debatable. I prefer attaching some reality to space, time and spacetime, and doing that does not confuse me or has me extablishing other properties to spacetime, other than it can be bent, warped and twisted in the presence of matter and which we see as gravity...and of course the DE component whatever that may be. A mathematical tool or representation, can also be looked on as real. "The views of space and time which I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of experimental physics, and therein lies their strength. They are radical. Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality". Hermann Minkowski: Your posts do seem as a rant in quite a few cases, and in many cases similar in style to another called Rajesh Trivedi who did his own lot of ranting. Just an observation.
