How right you are.
I have seen this subject of time and space, or sometimes just time, or other times just space come and just sort of fade away countless times on this newsgroup in the last 20 or so years.
A lot of very brilliant people, much smarter than any contributing to this newsgroup have tried to understand time and space for a very long time without success.
So it should be obvious that no one, no philosopher, scientist, lay thinker, or whoever understands time or space.
So it can safely be said that mainline science does not understand time or space. Period!
