Consider zero = 0.

Then replace it with zero = (1 – 1), which remains true.

Next move the ones apart so (+1) is near and (–1) is far away, do this by inserting nothing between them.

We get zero = (+1 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 –1), again true.

This is an uneven distribution but still with a sum of zero.

Although the sum is still zero, locally it can be +1 or –1 during evaluation.

Now imagine replacing 1 throughout the previous process with E (for energy).

We then have +E for energy and –E for anti-energy. It remains true.

Now we can have mass +M and –M for matter and antimatter.

Other things like charge can appear in the same way.

No we don't. You should reason instead with “I assume that ...”, “Let us assume that...” or “If we assume that...”. By insisting on space-time being more fundamental, than say energy, you are restricting your reasoning to only a subset of all the possible models. It may well be that your subset does not include models consistent with our universe.Albert wrote:We have to assume that in the beginning; only space-time existed

That might explain why you are perpetually going round in squares.
