A Little BackgroundWhat got me thinking about mattergy and spime in the first place was not only reading Einstein's book on relativity but the fact that in Planck units the only difference between mass units and energy units is a factor of c squared and the only difference between length units and time units is is a factor of 1/c. Now I hear all the time about the equivalence of matter and energy and this fact made me start wondering about length and time and I went back and read several books about relativity and decided that one could also talk about the equivalence of length and time. You can argue all you want whether "equivalence" is the proper word to use but it seemed to me that the relationship of length to time was very much like the relationship of matter to energy.
