This brief and simplified suggestion is to complement the following research https://physicsworld.com/a/classical-time-crystals-could-exist-in-nature-say-physicists. And related exploration such as https://phys.org/news/2020-02-crystals-topological-superconductors-merge.html:
Space and time crystal phenomena are related to or interdependent and interconnected with phenomena such as fluctuation, perpetuation, equilibrium and non-equilibrium, criticality, symmetry and symmetry breaking, phase transition, spectra-field, and resonance.
And which are related to adaptive topology, structure, function, order, mechanism, and process dynamic and transformation.
And which are expression of wholeness consciousness and awareness or wholeness body-mind or intertwinement and entanglement process (and mechanism) of infinite fractal parts of infinite sum of parts of the greater whole in the local and non-local cosmos.
However, a simple way to deduce is space and time are intertwined and entangled or irreducible. Therefore, space crystal exists implies time crystal exists. And vice versa.
And therefore, space and time crystal phenomena are inherent in nature. And the exploration can be strengthen and complemented through AI emulation and simulation.
