According to the minimum contradictions point of view, space-time is stochastic and it can be regarded as matter-ether. However, matter can be either mass or charge. Thus, there exist both mass-gravitational (g) and charge-electromagnetic (em) space-time. The (em) space-time behaves as a (g) one, since both are space-time and obey the same principles but it is not. Thus, any time interval in the (em) space-time is incomprehensible with respect to a coexisting (g) one and it can be regarded as an imaginary number, which is incomprehensible too. According to the minimum contradictions point of view, the energy of an infinitesimal (em) space-time can be regarded as imaginary since it is equivalent to an (em) time interval. Therefore, in general, the electromagnetic energy and in extension (em) magnitudes can be regarded as imaginary. The electromagnetic space-time can be regarded as a four dimensional space-time which coexists with the gravitational one. Taking into account the existence of negative physical and geometrical magnitudes, according to the minimum contradictions point of view, we may assume that there exists also an anti-em space-time that corresponds to antimatter. Thus, space-time as a whole is described through sixteen dimensions, i.e. four dimensions for each of the following space-times: (g), (anti-g), (em) and (anti-em). This does not mean that space-time has 16 dimensions; simply it is described through 16 dimensions. In reality space-time is fractal described through four dimensions. It is noted that there is a coexistence scale between (g) and (em) space-time and that the probability density function, according to the spirit to this work, can take either positive or negative values. The epistemological basis for the above mentioned one can find in previous works.
