Re: Speed of time ?

My common sense says that it is the present moment as counted by a clock that increases in duration causing our counts to slow down. The person ahead of me while falling into a black hole spends more time in his present moment than I, hence his clock ticks slower. The more space you occupy per unit ...

Re: consciousness has it got a frame of reference.

Can you have a frame of reference without an observer? Can you have an observer that is not conscious? My frame in space is centered on my mass, but it is my consciousness that keeps me centered in time. Being the stardust that I am, I can still feel my center connection towards big bang as the dila...

Re: Einstein

I am centered in time via my consciousness and its ability, as a processor, to interpret from light the world around me. I am anchored in the past by my mass, not to be confused with my memories which are just echos of the present, while space appears to me as the present we all share. This accelera...

Re: Einstein

The illusion is thinking that the present is observable but like space it is not.

Re: Can time be infinite?

I don't think that time can be infinite at least not if you use a clock to measure it. But if you think of time as a real measurable dimension, then I would say that the accelerated frame we call earth would fit as temporal motion after all I can measure an acceleration without any visible motion in...

Re: Does time move?

Exactly what does any particular clock actually measure?
Its own existence as a clock.

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

I am discrete, I am my own time just as you are. Age is how we describe everything, the age of the universe to the lifetime of a meson, why would you think that time is not discrete? An objective look at time would mean any single thing is a separate part of time because time like the number one is ...

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

Outward from a point is the only direction that energy moves from big bang to now. Think of big bang as a focal point of energy dilating outward, like a white hole. It is this focal point that broke apart each part a focal point of its own, making the early universe repulsive, inflation as all motio...

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

Can you define what you mean by a discrete time? Try looking up discrete mathematics, of course, imme time like the numbers themselves is dimensionless. The equations of quantum mechanics tells us that energy comes in specific discrete units. Energy is what we are measuring using space and time to ...

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

A photon is continuous in space yet a discrete part of time, the Earth on the other hand is continuous in time discrete in space. You need both space and time to explain reality, in space/time, the illusion is all in our minds.

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

I have been pondering this question lately after considering how we perceive time, and how the smaller you divide time into the less you can fit into it. Space and time are how we describe the present moment, opposites yet the same, imme the smaller you divide time the larger part of space you need...

Re: Where the Time come from ?

Try to describe time without space or mass.
I do not know the length of the duration before big bang, a point in time, which I think of as the beginning of the energy we measure as mass occupying space/time.

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

Perhaps you'll come back after at least six months of research? Barbour and Smolin, you like one I like the other, does not mean I need more study maybe you just need to open you own mind. If I think of space as continuous then time must be discrete, but on the other hand if I think of time as cont...

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

I was right. You've not passed a high school physics course, and seem not to have scored three digits on an IQ test either. You should not be speaking out in public on even the smallest aspect of physics. Everything about you is a measure of duration, even the duration of the photons are how we mea...

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

Time is just as real as space after all they are both the same thing just opposites, the mystical bunk is thinking time is not real. Time is the largest through smallest common denominator of our present moment when expressed within mathematics using space/time as a coordinate system from one point....
