We might understand the nature of Vacuum Physics if we look between the directions of the void’s at some point.The formulae created are more likely a derivative from the nature of gravity and how we digest a Vacuum. Physics would likely be a Connected reaction to the understanding of the poetry from ancient times and work of the philosophers of the Greek mind set. In some understanding we realize that the Egyptian hieroglyphics have shown us the physical format of those Dimensions within the craft of their time or rather crafts of their time.Both merchant and otherwise.
When we preserve the political function of a Republic we realize the voting process is much more successful than the dictatorial relationship that exists. Some people might be confused by the dictatorial positivity which is not
the mindset which we want to exist. The breakdown of the internal social fabric is such that the resources do not propagate us much as we live inside that vacuum and hope for a bright future.
