Based on some of the comments (now deleted), it looks like the first user who voted to close did so because they were focusing on how the OP was trying to apply scaling space to Newton's second law. Perhaps the first user figured that the OP was talking about their own theory of scaling space then? Although in my (speculative) opinion, this user seemed upset ...

I just cast the 4th vote to close, so you're one away now. I'll tell you why I voted to close: Assuming that you could have made this "mainstream", then it would still fall under "engineering", as you noted, and I'd still vote to close. It's not worth a lot of time being fine about the reason. Your use of "invisibility" does ...

I am the OP in question and I feel like I should post some clarifications, since some people seem to be jumping to even further conclusions than I did in the post. I don't think there is anything non-mainstream about my question, it was mostly a question about sloppy maths and I was well aware that I was in the wrong when I posted it but couldn't see why ...

So I didn't vote to close for the non-mainstream reason, since it seemed like you were still trying to stay within the realm of real physics. However, I did vote to close for the "engineering reason" due to your second question Is it possible in practice to build something which acts like an invisibility cloak for infrared, and has anyone done so? ...

There is no evidence that unicorns do exist. There is no evidence that unicorns do not exist. Therefore we must consider the possibility of the existence of unicorns. So has any research into unicorns ever been undertaken? This is similar to your reasoning about an atom being a “universe”. This is not how the scientific method works.
