Re: Relativity?

You have just said that I already know that a theory of everything does not exist yet the truth is I already do know that a theory of every thing already does exist. But unfortunately for some people they are NOT yet able to explain things clearly so that they can be easily understood There is noth...

Re: Relativity?

Would you care to explain what parts if any you think are not united between general relativity and quantum mechanics If you did then I would know what parts you are very interested to see how I try to or could actually unite No because you have made the claim that they are easy to unite and that i...

They are theories not facts for the reason I have already given above

Re: Relativity?

Theories are not facts even though they are comprised of them and the reason they are not is because they can be subject to potential
falsification at any time. But whether they can be actually falsified is irrelevant because it is the possibility of falsification that matters

Re: Relativity?

If some thing [ a theory or hypothesis ] IS verified through scientific methods and thus there is NO more potential verification nor potential falsification You people here seem to want to insist that the theory of special relativity HAS ALREADY been verified as being true and correct but also seem...

Re: Relativity?

Some axioms even provisional ones have to be accepted as the foundation on which knowledge can be acquired otherwise there is no way of determining how true this knowledge is. The axioms can always be improved upon if they are found to be faulty. But you have to start with some basic premises no mat...

Re: Seeing Time

One of the definitions of time is indeed the passing of an event so this is true
An other is the distance between events and those are the two standard ones

Re: Seeing Time

Comparing spacetime to a road is an inaccurate analogy because a road is static and straight and smooth
But spacetime is malleable for it can be bent out of shape by the proximity of very large objects of mass

Re: Experiencing of experience

I believe materialism is false because I cannot see how first person experience is possible under materialism It is possible since all that is required are a mind which is the function of a brain and a physical body to have experiences But all of human experience is first person anyway because it o...

Re: Seeing Time

They would have reached the conclusion based upon the fact that gravity has no mass as I said. And neither is it measured at a point but at the distance between objects or else it would have no effect upon them. And Newtons formula would be wrong. Technically it is but that is only because General R...

Re: Seeing Time

But you ( and I ) are in disagreement with the physicists who say that gravity warps space time and that causes light to bend Light travels through spacetime [ not just space ] and so if it gets bent by gravity then gravity must be in spacetime too Although space and time can be treated as separate...

Re: Seeing Time

Space and time are connected to each other as space is required in order for time to pass Time cannot pass within a space of zero volume since such a space cannot exist in reality Other than connected you are making a true statement but time is not connected to space and space is not connected to t...
