This is my assumption:
There is time, quantified, because it results from the succession of events and event possibilities, whereone event possibility has only one parameter: the eye-view probability of its division into two event possibilities.An event is a realized event possibility that can be represented as a branch. Each draw would have an address one bit longer than the previous branch.
This does not need a start, but the succession of branches without beginning and without end would be the basic operation of space-time.
The operation leads to an eternal (and at this lowest level still matterless) the emergence of infinitely many branches of event possibilities – and to a course of “time” only in one direction without the possibility of complete reversal.(Also, nothing could be forensically reversed here, because you would always need more bits than they are available.)
Due to the probability, branches with >n branches and branches with <n branches can arise parallel to a branch with n branches (and correspondingly many subbranches).This leads to the development of different event densities (branch densities) and event possibilities densities in space-time, which could be depicted as streaks in space-time.
These streaks would be the prerequisite for the formation of structures consisting of event possibilities.An extremely low probability of occurrence, however, thanks to an infinite number of “attempts” with an occurrence probability>0 has an event possibility sequence that develops periodicity, i.e. an oscillator. This could be the basic structure of particles, which also no longer contribute to space-time growth, because they grow into themselves again and again. The number of addresses will continue to grow, but always at the same branch.
Coupled and mutually influencing would be such event-possibility sequences that share event possibilities.This leads to the possibility of the occurrence of larger particles consisting of particles.
How mass is created goes beyond an answer to this question.Mass could have all structures that cannot move so quickly (I would still have to define what is “moving”) like the “movement” associated with the growth of the above-mentioned branches.
How gravity is created could perhaps be explained by the different event densities mentioned above.
Without mathematics, however, my assumptions are only speculation with a great need for further definitions.Presumably one needs the mathematics of string theorists in particular. With strings in a sloppy event space, one may also come from their field to a world model that also includes gravity.
Is there time?The whole model makes sure there is time.
