For me The archetype is a abstract construct of the human mind create from reality but reality is a priori to it .

“Back in the 1800s, there was space and there was time. … But there was no notion that space and time were in any sense “the same thing”. But then along came Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity—and people started talking about “spacetime”, in which space and time are somehow facets of the same thing.”

For me space and time do represent an equivalence thereby becoming reciprocal.

From a narrative mythic perspective I like how Joyce expresses it through Stephen Dedalus in the Proteus chapter of Ulysses.

“Stephen closed his eyes to hear his boots crush crackling wrack and
shells. You are walking through it howsomever. I am, a stride at a time. A
very short space of time through very short times of space. Five, six: the
Nacheinander …”

Lots of fun to contemplate the space time continuum from scientific and mythopoetic perspectives .
