(p.194) 16 Warps and Woofs of Einstein
The Mind in Nature

This chapter attempts to establish ontologically some of what Einstein established in physics. Einstein was himself driven by ontological forms of argument. Seeing what might have been underneath and behind some of Einstein's most basic thoughts should teach us something valuable. It presents a model that is not limited to particle-objects-in-space-time; it also fits well for explanations in terms of warps and woofs of space-time as infinitesimal energy-loops or superstrings. It is argued that space-time has properties, yet it is not itself had as a property or even a set of properties, and it could not exist without properties. A propertied space-time is a one-object universe and space-time satisfies the correct definitions of ‘substratum’.

Keywords:   space-time, objects, space, Einstein, warps, woofs
