    From post # 135

    Hasn't become matter to point of being able to support ( carry , the particle is denser that the wave) , the matter coming from the Sun for example and not matter enough to give off light ) .

    On the discussion of dark-matter being a medium for both light waves and particles . Eminateing from the Sun .

    And the medium can't be gravity , since gravity is inward not outward moving , in mainstream physics .

    So is the medium a form of ether ?

    I considered closing it, since it seems you started it in an inappropriate forum in order to avoid your exclusion from posting to our Science sections. Instead, I opted to be generous and merely move it to Pseudoscience.

    Wrong , I posted it in Free Thoughts forum because it is a Free Thought , forum .

    Has it now changed to Free Thoughts according to you ?

    It seems so . James .

    No

    And I moved it to Pseudoscience since the thread of your discussion of the topic is pseudoscientific. It's a more specific category that the catch-all Free Thoughts.

    No

    So how would space bend in a pure vacuum ?

    in if is so it to be a im
    (attempting to make a sentence using only 2 letter words)

    sitting beside the question of
    does space have an absolute relative existence of a quantifiable relative measure of pressure so it may be qualified by inverse proportional reference ?

    i am so there for i are

    space has negative pressure to validate its state... ?

    er-go the real question in non abated subtractive disassociation

    what negative pressure is absolute space ?

    What do you mean by a "pure vacuum"?

    If you're talking about regular space, such as within our solar system, say, then light certainly does bend in that.

    To your first question ;

    Absence of any energy and matter down to the sub-quantum ( which I have mentioned before ) .

    Where can we find pure vacuum, then?

    If there are none to be found anywhere, then asking whether space bends in one is irrelevant to anything practical, isn't it?

    No its not .

    Because asking this question clarifies whether space bends because of what's in it .

    river,

    If that's what you want to know, then in simple terms general relativity tells us that energy and matter cause spacetime to curve (bend, if you prefer). It would therefore follow that if you're sufficiently far away from any matter or energy, then spacetime will be approximately flat where you are.

    On the other hand, it is important to realise that the "empty" space near a massive object like the Earth and the Sun is curved, even though there is nothing in that empty space. The curvature is caused by the nearby matter.

    Does this answer your question?

    Yes , it answers nothing can bend . As I suspected . What I thought was going to the answer but Not to my question .

    The answer is nonsense .

    Okay, let's recap.

    Your question was "Does space bend in a pure vacuum?"

    My answer is: no, it doesn't.

    Are you saying my answer is nonsense? If so, you need to explain what you find nonsensical about it. For example, perhaps you believe that space can bend in a pure vacuum. If that's the case, it would be good if you explained why or how it can do that. You know, supporting your claim with argument or evidence, that kind of thing.

    So...?

    Good , we are on the same page , so far .

    Next question can space bend at all ? I say not .

    Who cares what you say?

    You give no reasons and your provide nothing to support your opinions.

    I'll stick with what Einstein said, instead. He published and defended his opinions, and they have stood the test of time for more than a century now.
