Subject: curved space and/or curved time (time is the "real, scalar" part of<br> vector mechanics -- like a God-am clock

time is simply not a dimension,
no matter some diagrammatic representation;
it is awareness *of* dimensionality; if
one has no awareness of universe, one cannot do any
of the God-am *mathematica* (any
of the four subjects, or quadrivium, including
Gauss's "queen of the sciences").

how can Kooby Doo not have any hypothesis,
but a bunch of allegedly corrective math --
what is the hypothesis, KD?

spacetime is nothing but quaternions,
as shown by Einstien's assistant, Lanczos,
in _Variational Mechanics_ from Dover,
a vast treatise on configuration spaces.
