The very word "structure" implies a arrangement in space. Biologists say cells are different here than they are there ( different species occupy different habitats ) or they say cells now are different than what they were 3 billion years ago ( life evolves with time). If it's not a change in the structural arrangement in space or a change in how cells behave chemically as time progresses then what in the world do they mean when biologists say "the cell has changed"? *> But time is interesting.

If space is discrete what change could occur in less time than the time it would take the fastest thing that can exist to travel the shortest distance that can exist??
