How does scale relate to time-space?
Gravity does not apply to “small” things. This observation does not merely pose questions, but also tells us something.
We make a crucial and indicative observation when we notice that “scale” is effectively an intrinsic limiting factor to the function of gravity. “Small” things don’t locate spatially in the same way that “massive” things do.
Putting theoretical spatial dimensions aside, we can reliably “map” three physical dimensions of space plus one “dimension” of time onto the observable.
Now, putting aside the trendy idea of parallel universes of equal size, consider the unfashionable old “micro/macro-verse” theory that this universe is one of the smallest “elements” within a “larger universe” and so on.
Perhaps it is better to say that scale is “exponentially meta-dimensional”, rather than being a dimension proper.
According to this thinking, a “Big Bang” event can be conceptualized as a simple function of a transitional event of the dimension of scale taking place, within a larger expanding universe, from smallest possible to largest possible.
Where all energy within time/space exists within a framework of scale, this “meta-dimensionality of scale” presumably proceeds in the “expansionary, or increasing direction” from small to large, similar to the unidirectionality of the “arrow of time”, and thereby can be conceptualized as providing a rational counterbalance to entropy as a justifying requisite effect allowing for the perpetuation of existence of active matter.
