fundamental space : a description of space as the fundamental geometrodynamical quantised field

The vision of Clifford and Einstein can be summarized in a single phrase:

A Geometrodynamical Universe
A world whose properties are described by geometry, and a geometry
whose curvature changes with time - a dynamical geometry.

~ John A Wheeler
Curved Empty Space-Time as the Building Material of the Physical World


There is nothing in the world except curved empty space. Matter, charge,
electromagnetism and other fields are only manifestations of the bending
of space.

Physics is geometry.

~ John A Wheeler
on W K Clifford's monistic ontology


If we imagine the gravitational field to be removed, there does not
remain a space, but absolutely nothing.

There is no such thing as an empty space, i.e. a space without field.

Space-time does not claim existence on its own, but only as a
structural quality of the field.

~ Albert Einstein
