Full Idea

It seems plausible that both space and its contents should somehow be made of the same stuff - so that in a sense space becomes the only thing in the universe.

Gist of Idea

Space and its contents seem to be one stuff - so space is the only existing thing

A Reaction

I presume the concept of a 'field' is what makes this idea possible.
