In the ExperienceModel, perspectives are called reference frames. These may be represented as LightCones. A light cone consist of a past cone and future cone joined at the point of the here and now. The past maps the space and time of possible events we can receive (at the speed of light) in the present. The future cone maps the time and space (at the speed of light) we can effect in the future. They are our window of observation and effect. As we move through time and space our cone moves with us, changing our observational window and future possibilities.

Every point in space at any time may be represented by a light cone. But only those cones representing actual participants in the universe can be said to exist. In addition, the cones represent possibilities, the only part of the cones that are actually manifest are the discrete change communication event spikes that actually occur where the cones of two objects intersect. The event spikes themselves are all that we actually perceive and are sufficient to understand all that we perceive including space and time.

Further, when change information is received, it is annihilated and no longer exists manifesting the attraction of two reference frames because space and time are composed of these events. And when the change is propagated into the future space and time are created manifesting a repulsion of the reference frame of the sender and receiver and the creation of time and space for the interval until it is received and annihilated.

TheCaseOfTheElectronCollision shows that reference frame determines whether differences are perceived in parallel as space or in serial as changes manifesting time. The exchange of photons does not inherently have a specific direction in time. This begs the question of how time itself emerges and how the speed of light emerges as a constant.

Consider a set of primitive exchange of discrete state change information among some number of participants generating a directed unit graph of events for each participant. Each participant experiences and propagates change information in a particular order, the received signal is annihilated before the translated signal is propagated and events occur in a particular order. In this way each participant is a discrete independent clock. At the same time, independent events occurring between independent participants have no definite time ordering with respect to these events. But the ordering perceived by any participant cannot be contradicted by any other participant as the received information is annihilated before the propagated information is generated.

In TheCaseOfTheElectronCollision, a spike, or spoke of timespace is generated. The imaginary light cones of the two electrons seem to repel each other as each shifts across into a receding reference frame. Although they share a tick of the cosmic clock they then manifest their independence in a linear increasing fashion. These velocities create space by separating light cones.
