2. Pyron, defined

A "pyron" is hereby defined as the smallest "atom of space" that can exist. It exists in the form of a tetrahedron, or pyramid.

The tetrahedron is the simplest of the five Platonic solids.

Space is theorized as existing of these solids, which exist on the scale of the Planck length, which is on the order of ten to the twentieth power times smaller than a proton.

The universe is then described as stacks of these pyrons existing and vibrating between each other out to the Universe's ever-expanding edge.

Proper analysis will involve proper mathematics, and for this we shall require a new three dimensional coordinate system.

Currently, the 2 best known 3D co-ordinate systems are Cartesian (x-, y-, and z-) axes, and Spherical (r-, and 2 angles), and then there is Cylindrical (r-, angle, and y-), which is a combination of the 2.

Pyronic co-ordinates (x-, y-, z-, and w-) exist from the center of each pyron out through the center of each of the four faces. This theory is currently in development.

"Why four axes?" is the first question many will have. The answer is that we will be talking about positives only, no negatives. In Cartesian co-ordinates, for example, there also exist -x, -y, and -z in addition to +x, +y, and +z.

Real space however does not occur in negatives. There will be no negatives in Pyron theory. There will be conversions however with the other co-ordinate frames, and yes then negatives will be brought in in the form of Complex Algebra and Imaginary numbers, e.g., i = the square root of negative one.

"What's the Point?" will be another question. The point is to begin with the simplest assumptions, and work up to the point where Quantum Mechanics, the experimental results of Particle Physics, and General Relativity are explained.
