## Another random thought - on a mostly unread blog.

After reading some random stuff, this is how I think relations between anything in space could be described:

(X, Y, Z), t , (Xi, Yi, Zi), ti

Thus there are the normally observable portions of space X, Y, Z, definable at time t. But then there are the "imaginary" space components Xi, Yi, Zi and the ti for an imaginary time. The "i" component of these elements is more or less the same "i" seen in math using complex numbers. If you were to square their value, you'd see a negative real number.

I almost suspect that gravity would be the resultant of an imaginary square, since it is only observable as an attractive force. There might not be any "anti-gravity", but perhaps knowing how the relation of an imaginary space component ties into a standard one might allow you to zero out gravity or produce a strong attractor. (Still the net effect of a combined zeroing the influence of a natural attractor and production of an artificial accelerating force might look like antigravity in a practical sense.) Also this might be interesting for quantum particles that blink in and out of real space - squares of imaginary stuff would blink into negative components of real space. (Not necessarily antimatter, but it might be left handed where normally such things are right handed, etc.) Gets a little too funky for me to think of in detail, but that scratches the surface at least.
