Could you explain what it is?SecularCauses wrote:There is a difference between relativistic and non-relativistic mass.
Is there anything other than mass than can exert pressure on mass?SecularCauses wrote:Also, the gravitational attraction in relativity theory is not just dependent on mass, it is also dependent on the pressure that the given mass is under. Increase the pressure of a given mass, and you increase its ability to curve space, which simulates a "gravitational attraction." It also increases its ability to curve time.
No idea. Why do you ask?SecularCauses wrote:Why wouldn't the mass increase as it speeds up? Why wouldn't space shrink as an object speeds up? Why wouldn't time slow down as an object speeds up? Why would anyone think that there is some absolute measure of space or time?
You say to thedoc:
It's a bold claim. Do you have any idea as to how time and matter interact?SecularCauses wrote:Time itself exists, and governs the movements of a clock, which is why a watch that is accelerated close to light speed will slow down, it has nothing to do with its mechanical properties.
