If time were a measure of density—a matter to energy or M/E ratio—it’d have deep implications for human health. Because matter and energy are to some degree interchangeable—as mass-energy equivalence or E=mc^2 indicates—either matter or energy can play the role of matter or energy. For matter to be energy (or energy to be matter) requires a lot of speed. But for energy to be energy (and matter to be matter) is easy.

What if we’ve been seeing things backward? Matter that is fast can move backward in space which is to move forward in time—the moon. And energy that is dense can move forward in space which is to move backward in time—the sun.

What if space is a spiraling flat dimension within the Vesica piscis (the intersection of matter and energy) whose circumference is about 70 years. But outside of space, time is a much larger dimension—the circle within which the Vesica piscis sits. For space’s ~70 year radius, time would have a ~7 year radius—but it’d be 7 light years.

That’s what I’ve been wondering about, anyway. I don’t actually know any maths.

Why would space spiral? Because matter can move forward only incrementally due to the conflicting needs for density and speed. I can increase my speed, but first I must increase my density—which increases my need for speed. This circumscribed nature of motion within time is evinced in the Fibonacci spiral, found in everything from galaxies and hurricanes to flower petals and the human face. While inside time—while matter is playing the role of energy, and energy is playing the role of matter—our hands are somewhat tied. Fibonacci is the signature of the material world.

Matter, in a sense, is a prison. But matter is more than matter—as we’ve seen in the fourth state of matter experiment. Matter emerges from energy and energy emerges from matter. The two are hybrid. If we push the material component backward in time, we are left with energy. If we pull the energetic component forward in time, we are left with matter.
