Eddington, Sir Arthur - The Expanding Universe - Metrical fields and function
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Expanding Universe – Sir Arthur Eddington
We must distinguish in conception between space which for certain purposes replaces the rest of the universe and space which is occupied by the rest of the universe… the distinction is easier if we use the term ‘metrical field’ instead of space for, by analogy with electrical fields, we recognise that a field has a dual relation to matter – viz it is produced by matter and it acts on matter.
