First, I am a physics ‘hobbyist’; I have only rudimentary (read college classes) in physics and I absolutely recognize that I know very little about the subject except what I have studied and can find online. However, I have a theory that the flow of time causes space in much the same way that the flow of electricity causes magnetism (the ‘right hand thumb rule’, for example). This would explain the supposed curvature of space since it would flow in a circular motion nn degrees against the flow of time. This idea could explain, in a way, the faster-than-light expansion of space nanoseconds after ‘The Big Bang’ since it wasn’t space that exploded but rather time that exploded meaning time ‘flowed faster’ immediately after the big bang causing a massive, near instantaneous expansion of space at that time. (As you can see, I have far too much ‘time’ on my hands…) The problem I have – and hope someone can answer – is that I can think of no way to prove or disprove this experimentally; not so much my ancillary thoughts of time and the big bang but rather if time causes space, how can this be disproved or proved experimentally?
