Re: Are these time questions unsolvable?

It seems to me that that proves that time does not flow or move. There is no universal now that moves towards the future. Everything dilates in time, the count of a clock is how we measure this motion. We measure the Earth as dilating at 9.8 meters per second per second but we do not measure it wit...

Re: Are these time questions unsolvable?

Does not GPS show us that there is in fact one instant that we all share as the present, even if we can not see it? Absolutely NOT. I used a thought experiment elsewhere to illustrate this point. Imagine you have a gee-whiz imaginary telescope which can resolve the finest of details. You focus your...

Re: Are these time questions unsolvable?

OK, Einstein was wrong and you are correct. BTW Time is a dimension. It does not dilate etc. However, velocity changes one's perspective. See Lorenz Transformation equations. Einstein was the one who put time into the equations, he tied it to the count of a clock by multiplying a relative count by ...

Re: Are these time questions unsolvable?

Time is relative and so does not have a uniform speed as such. The tick, A-side, of your clock is always equal to the tock, B-side, but it is your relative position that determines them together, C side, in terms of a light clock. Time does not move, it is a dimension. Time dilates like the light w...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

petm1. In a process universe you must think of the atom as continuously coming into existence at the speed of light. The atom is not an object but a PROCESS because reality is that which is continuously re-making itself. The Cartesian space is unnecessary in such a modelling. An atom's existence is...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

One over time, 1/t is as simple as it gets. Numbers are dimensionless and it is only "when" you look at it over time that it becomes real. Picture me as a 4-dimensional worm, you can graph me over time that way but you see me as one being. This is not because we are not seeing all four dimensions bu...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

Reality: is anything you can think of by assigning it a number of one, This idea is one idea out of billions, now that it is out there I can start counting its existence with a clock. Time is real as one thing, space as one thing dilates everywhere at one time and our universal clock started at one ...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

I do not think you need to go all the way down to Planck to understand dilation, we all receive signals from the outer edge of atoms, try thinking that an atom is not vibrating but as always dilating, one thing getting bigger in time even if we do not see it in space. I like thinking that I am the b...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

I don't think we got it wrong, I think we just look at everything backward. The present is not out there, it is our consciousness that is dilating in time with photons, it is the center connection we call Mass that ties us in time to the past. I see space as my present moment, centered in my one-se...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

the focal point within my eye, which changes the blur of motion that is our universe into the static present I see as space. This is a very counter-intuitive idea only because the speed of light is so fast and in our everyday lives everything is happening nearby. When I see a tree 2 km away I'm act...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

SR uses a photon as the ruler, a screwball at its best, unchanging in time constant change in space. GR uses matter as it ruler, constant change in time unchanging in space. The only common factor is that they both travel the same direction in time. Think of the matrix of space-time as +++- and ---+...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

Obvious Leo : why can the Universe not be expanding as well as ageing Because the notion of expansion is a physical one and space is not physical. Space is the present moment we all share. As I look back in space-time from my point of view, everything looks contracted the further back the more cont...

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

I think that mass is the past we trace back to a big bang, space is the common present we all share, and the accelerated frame we call Earth is all of us dilating into the future.

Re: Where does reality exist in physics?

Space is the present moment that we all share as receivers while in our minds we see the illusion of emission out there. Centered in time by my mass or the dilating momentum of matter anchored in the past. The acceleration we feel in our gravity well is all our matter dilating from our common past i...
