    even space and time might not be real Feynman and Gell Mann after developing theories on electrons and quarks expressed their view that electrons and quarks might be mathematical constructs rather than real entities What I am inviting you to do here is to go beyond the skepticism of Feynman and Gell Mann and delve into Einstein s words space and time are modes by which we think not conditions in which we live The sense of space is so real to us that we think of everything else as interactions taking place in the arena of space and time But space itself is the experience corresponding to the electrical signals generated by the light hitting your retina It is a perceptual construct much like the tonality of the sound you hear when air pressure waves hit your ear drums Our adoption of naive realism results in our complete trust in the three dimensional space view And since the world is created in our brain as perceptual constructs based on light its speed becomes an all important constant in our world And since speed mixes space and time a better description is found in a four dimensional Minkowski geometry But all these descriptions are based on perceptual experiences and therefore unreal in some sense I know the description above is highly circular I talked about space being a mental construct created by light traveling through get this space And when I speak of its speed naturally I m talking about distance in space divided by time and positing as the basis for the space time mixing This circularity makes my description less than clear and convincing But the difficulty goes deeper than that You see all we have is this cognitive construct of space and time We can describe objects and events only in terms of these constructs even when we know that they are only cognitive representations of sensory signals Our language doesn t go beyond that Well it does but then we will be talking the language for instance of Advaita calling the constructs Maya and the causes behind them Brahman which stays unknowable Or we will be using some other parallel descriptions These descriptions may be profound wise and accurate But ultimately they are also useless It reminds me of those two guys lost while flying around in a hot air balloon Finally they see a man on the ground and shout Hey can you tell us where we are The complete accurate and useless reply is You are in a hot air balloon about 100 ft above sea level The guy on the ground must have been a philosopher But if philosophy is your thing the discussions of cognitive constructs and unknown causations are not at all useless Philosophy of physics happens to be my thing and so I ask myself what if I assume the unknown physical causes exist in a world similar to our perceptual construct I could then propagate the causes through the
