There are six elements. 4 physicals(relate to Mass), space(relate to Dark matter) and consciousness(relate to time).
“‘Bhikkhu, this person consists of six elements.’ So it was said. And
with reference to what was this said? There are the earth element, the
water element, the fire element, the air element, the space element,
and the consciousness element. So it was with reference to this that
it was said: ‘Bhikkhu, this person consists of six elements.’(Dhātuvibhaṅga)
The Buddhist explanation about these phenomena (patichchasamuthpada) is.
The teaching of interdependent co-creation is based on an
understanding of the twelve causal links (davadasa nidana) producing
what is called the cycle or the wheel of existence (bhavacakra). What
this means is that there are twelve causal steps in the arising and
passing away of phenomena in general, and understanding these steps
helps the seeker to free themselves from the bonds of worldly karma.
Name and Form (namarupa, characterization) – this term is used in
Buddhism to mean that feature of a thing which defines one object from
another. There is, in other words, a discriminative movement here.
Objective 'characterization' – the distinction of a thing – derives
from the particular focus of perception that has arisen from whatever
specific force of creation we are referring to. You see, from the
Buddha's point of view, everything existing arises from a mental state
of knowing; that is, from awareness. Awareness is key to everything.
Nothing exists in a state where they is absolutely no awareness of it.
Six Sense Fields (sadayatana) – the six sense fields or "objects of
sense-perception" are rudimentary at this stage. They subliminally
consist of visible form or what amounts to light vibrations, as the
sense-field of seeing; sound vibrations, as the sense field of
hearing; scent or odour vibrations, as the sense field of smelling;
taste vibrations, as the sense-field of tasting; tangible vibrations,
as the sense field of touch; and internal mental phenomena in general,
as the sense field of mental-consciousness. In other words, each
'perception' must have an object in the form of the perceptional field
of vibrations that will impinge upon the six sense organs, and which
those organs then relay to the brain. It is actually from 'name and
form,' the distinguishing characteristic of things, whence these
fields arise. Without having their specific character differentials,
it would not be possible to distinguish one field from another.

Right view. from Kaccanagotta
At Savatthī. Then the Venerable Kaccanagotta approached the Blessed
One, paid homage to him, sat down to one side, and said to him:
“Venerable sir, it is said, ‘right view, right view.’ In what way,
venerable sir, is there right view?”
“This world, Kaccana, for the most part depends upon a duality—upon
the notion of existence and the notion of nonexistence. But for one
who sees the origin of the world as it really is with correct wisdom,
there is no notion of nonexistence in regard to the world. And for one
who sees the cessation of the world as it really is with correct
wisdom, there is no notion of existence in regard to the world.....
