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.
