The space is not what we see: it is not a passive scenography of the universe, but a constant modification depending on the objects of the scene. Without any matter or energy, according to Einstein the space is flat. Before his studies, spacetime was an inert stage where celestial bodies lived without any interference. But the gravitational force, which each body has got onto others, implies the bending of space. A star deforms the space, it bends it and in this bending a planet will join the orbit of the star: the planet will follow the same bending of space produced by the gravitational force of the star. Thanks to the balance of the two gravities, star and planet will be bound together.
The space is very smart, like a swan made of imaginary watermark It bends, it spreads its wings, it moves and rests with grace and elegance. But space cannot be thought without any time. Each movement of the swan is linked to time. Its beak is leaning on a ruffled head of a cat that decides the rhythm of the metronome, the object that measures time in music compositions. Where there is a score, there is music; where there is music, there is time; where there is time, there is space… planets that bend the space, floating in it or leaning. They are hidden in a silk cloth, which hosts the cat and its paws. One of them gives the initial “la” to a space-swan that embraces everything.
Spacetime is our reality: we often lose it. We are not able sometimes to see and appreciate all the beauties around us because reality (from the inifinite depths of the universe to our everyday life) is so beautiful to become almost magic: the magic of a space-swan and that of a time-cat.
