Space, time, the theory of relativity and the 4th dimension likely all intertwine. These concepts are taken mostly to be fact except when we reach quantum mechanics and things get even more interesting. Here is a brief refresher on Einstien’s work in this area and a video discussing the concept of space and time as one continuum.
“Einstein’s Dream,” introduces string theory and shows how modern physics—composed of two theories that are ferociously incompatible—reached its schizophrenic impasse: One theory, general relativity, successfully describes big things like stars and galaxies, while another, quantum mechanics, is equally successful at explaining small things like atoms and subatomic particles.
Einstein came up empty-handed, and the conflict between general relativity and quantum mechanics has stymied all who’ve followed.
What makes things more interesting is quantum physics and the famous double slit experiment. That is the one where a photon changes direction when being observed. How do they all tie together?
