That is a true statement

I am disputing the present information is incorrect

We are also disputing it

......in none of my posts do I say I require any help in the present available information I am disputing.

In your first paragraph you have just completely agreed with me.
I think you need to read all of his post, you will find several things which do not agree.

The first paragraph destroys the rest of the post

edit - Yes. This (above) makes perfect sense to me. Because the Earth rotates at a (fairly) constant rate this rotation can be used as a way of measuring time (one full rotation is a day,one full rotation is also my observation point travelling a circumference distance) any other duration can be measured as a fraction or multiple of that rotation)

I completely agreed with part of what you said. I accept your telling of history, but I disagree with your conclusion.
How can you agree with the history then deny a conclusion based on the history that you  have just agreed with?  A history we still use today.

My dispute is not with the history, but your interpretation of it. The science of it, if you will.

one full rotation is also my observation point travelling a circumference distance)

Does it also matter how fast the Earth is orbiting the Sun, or how fast the Sun is orbiting the center of the galaxy, or how fast the whole galaxy is moving?

Again, you are confusing time and space. 462.69 meters cannot be equal to any amount of time just as there is no number of dolphins equal to a rat. A car traveling at 5 meters per second does not imply that 5 = 462.69 just as a photon traveling at 299792458 meters per second does not imply that 299792458 = 462.69. This apparent paradox doesn't mean that our measurement of time is completely wrong, it means that yours is.

in summary:
seconds ≠ meters
dolphins ≠ rats
speed has units of meters per second, or miles per hour, or feet per minute, or whatever unit of length per unit time you want to use. There is nothing special about the "speed of Earth's rotation"

Can you find any merit in any of my questions or points?

My interpretation of time is not incorrect because when science keeps agreeing with me about the origin of time,  science is agreeing with me.

Regardless whether my account of rotational 1 second equals a Earth surface point travelled distance, science is agrees that the origin of time is based on motion which makes an inevitable 1 second would always equal a distance and timing of relative motion would be achieved but not timing of time.

I understand the points you are trying to make and I am not confusing time and space or space-time (see space-time thread).

The complete idea involves more than just motion, it involves a Unified theory of everything including the value of numbers.
If you go over my other threads you can see how it all links together.

Let me try to explain something  -  If you are recording time 1 must equal 1, time is instant,

1 can not equal the word one, the one is 3 digits and not 1 digit.  One=3   three=5 and so on.

1 must equal 1.

The meaning of 0 is one.  0=1

the meaning of 0 is also ................     the dots been points of space  , I call it zero point space, you call it a dimension of space.

Empty space between your eyes and an object (not accounting for air etc)  is unseen, a  point nothing of/in space is timeless, observe space and you only observing your time watching space, there is no space-time only your time filling a dimension of shapeless space or moving through a shapeless space.

It is complex to understand, I hope you understand after this post.

I have just give it some more thought and it does not matter about the suns movement , we timed timing points by rotation and lining up the timing points.

If I spun a childs round about at a constant speed and I walked around the round about as it was revolving at a constant speed, the timing points would be the same every time.

If you were on the round about timing the exchange of relative motion, you are travelling a circular distance relative to your timing.

The distance and speed would always equal your time recorded and in essence be the same thing.

If you travelled away from me at 1035 mph into space and I did not move from my place on Earth at the great Pyramid, in 24 hrs we both travel the same distance.

I only bothered to read this thread because it had a lot of posts in it, so I wondered if there was anything worth reading in it. It was no surprise to find that there isn't - there never is when someone new creates an avalanche of new threads. What we have here is someone proposing that time is equal to distance. He/she is obsessed with the idea that this should involve an arbitrary unit of time tied to an arbitrary size of planet and an arbitrary point on the surface of that planet at an arbitrary altitude and the distance that point will move in terms of rotation based on a daily rotation of 361 degrees and arbitrary ways of slicing up rotation into units. What an absolute pile of pants!

If you want to relate time to distance, that can be indeed be done, but the sensible way to do it is to link it directly to the speed of light and the distance it covers in an amount of time. You still have to choose an arbitrary unit of time or length, but then you can derive the other unit from it. This does not at any point mean that time = distance, but merely that these two distinct things can be related in some way. I have described a direct relationship between the two, but the OP describes one with an intermediate step which is a rotation angle, so if he thinks time = distance, he should be claiming that time = rotation = distance because that logically follows from his argument, or rather should come in the middle of his argument. And now that we have rotation = distance, I think that ought to wrap things up neatly.

A nice attempt to oppose the idea, however without foundation for the points I have mentioned, the speed of light came much later than the derivation of time from an origin of time that equalled a distance travelled relative to the observer relative to method.

Whom exactly are you defending against?  I am not an Alien we are all on this planet together.

You have to deny history and the origin of time which I do not believe anyone can do to show my idea is untrue and unfounded.

The obvious avoidance of my other threads by members tells me that my ideas are pretty much un-arguable, the reason  , they are the truths.

space time = 0

space time dilation = 0

A Caesium atom is not time, a difference in timing  of the caesium atom(s) in the Keating experiment is a gravity synchronization fluctuation and not a time dilation.

History does not make something true or untrue scientifically. We used to think the Earth was flat, but now we know better--this doesn't automatically invalidate other scientific advances made when this false knowledge was held to be true. It doesn't invalidate scientific advances based on repeated refinement of false ideas either--that's how all science works.

The reason your threads are "unarguable" has nothing to do with their truth, and everything to do with the fact that you are unable to understand our arguments and we are unable to understand yours.

Given this obvious disconnect and your inability to grasp the difference between units, ratios and values, we are at an impasse.

Do not be surprised if we completely stop replying to your posts.

They are unarguable because they are the scientific proofs from your very own science.

My observations and discourse of science present information and all the internet forums answers leave no other possible conclusions.

I have already heard all the opposing argument and all of it tries to deflect away from the issues being stated in question  that is sated by good logic and having very reasonable doubt of present information to its falsifiable statement.

I can show and have already shown that there is no space time and no dilation of time,

Why do you insist on deflecting from the truth's?

You only have to understand ''this''

Well actually ''this'' has dimensions, it is also 4 singular constants, it also occupies different dimensional pixel placement on your monitoring device, ''this'' occupies the volume of pixels within its dimensions, while you observe ''this'' you are not observing ''this'' time, you are monitoring your own time pass by.

''this'' has 4 constants and a ''vowel'', a ''vowel'' being its own dependant time.  ''this'' is now a ''blank space'' , blank space has a greater dimension than ''this'', ''blank space'' has 10 constants and a ''vowel'' occupying the volume of pixels contained.
''Blank space'' has more dimensional points than ''this'', ''blank space'' has more dimensions of space covered with time, a time that does not alter, a blank space is infinite in time with no beginning until occupied.

In physics, space-time (also space–time, space time or space–time continuum) is any mathematical model that combines space and time into a single interwoven continuum. The space-time of our universe is usually interpreted from a Euclidean space perspective, which regards space as consisting of three dimensions, and time as consisting of one dimension, the "fourth dimension".
By combining matter and time into a single manifold called occupied space, , time is treated as moving with an object, time  being dependent of the state of motion of an observer or the object and dependent relative to gravitational fields for the object or observer relative to the observers time dependency to gravitational fields.  Time cannot be separated from the three dimensions of the object or observer, because the observed rate at which time passes for an object or observer occupying and moving through space is   equal to the object or observers own time observed rate of  occupying and moving through space,

If you can't follow something when it's set out properly, there's really no hope for you. If you want to talk about time and to discuss its relationship to distance, don't get bogged down in the origin of the second which is merely an arbitrary unit of time. There is nothing magically special about the second that makes how its length was chosen important when looking at time itself, so all the stuff about planets going round and the distance some parts of one planet cover as they rotate is utterly irrelevant. If you want to tie time to distance, you need to do it via light.

It's hard to work out what you're trying to attack there. Time dilation is a term from one theory, while other theories have other descriptions relating to how clocks run at different speeds. I don't know if you're trying to attack relativity or what your aim is there, but clocks certainly do get out of sync with each other when located at different altitudes in a gravity well or when moving relative to each other.

Yes the arbitrary Caesium clocks have a synchronization off set, this should not be referred to as a time dilation.  A Caesium clock and the monitoring of a change in timing is not any effect on time itself.

You are trying to say I do not know time and trying to direct that I am in some way thinking an arbitrary meaning of time means something compared to real time.

It is not I who has SR based on a time dilation of an arbitrary device.

I understand very well what time is and what time certainly is not.

When discussing things within the theory of relativity, time dilation is the correct term. When discussing things withing your alternative theory, you are fully entitled to reject the terms and mechanisms of other theories, so that's fine.

I'm trying to get to an understanding of what your theory is. It started out with the assertion that time is distance, and for some reason you wanted to equate the two via the rotation of a planet and the movement of part of that planet. That isn't a good place to start.

The Earths rotation was found to fluctuate, so we had to change to a  Caesium clock, another said constant that is not a constant.

I do not equate it to a distance, science already has done this, this is  the mistake I am showing, I know a distance cannot be time, history did not.

''I'm trying to get to an understanding of what your theory is. It started out with the assertion that time is distance, and for some reason you wanted to equate the two via the rotation of a planet and the movement of part of that planet. That isn't a good place to start.''

The other way around, this is what history did not me or what I want to do.

My theory is simple., my theory shows that even today science has time and distance being the same, a measuring of timing and not time.

I will put it simple -
Abstract- This paper is intended to give a definite structure or shape to reality,  in a  primary respect to science process, and  to create a primary rule or principle on which something is based as opposed to present and presenting naive set theories.
A reality that looks at the true values of reality, that humanity has quantified, and showing by logical axioms and relativistic thought that these uses have no other discipline other than the literal content created by the practitioner.
This is to show,  tacitly assume at the beginning of a line of argument or course of action that something is the case meaning to a discipline other than the literal content created by the practitioner. By using a family of approaches to the presentation of science to construct a true reality based on absolute axiom truth.
A reality that looks at the true values that humanity has quantified.

My argument is of simplicity that is the truth,  space-time or time in and of a space is none existent.

Time in an absolute void has no value unless the empty space is occupied by matter or a medium.

Time is dependent only of the matter or medium and space has no independent time because time in a space is infinite and can never change whilst empty of matter or a medium.

You can not and do not observe an empty space that is transparent and see through, you are in affect seeing ''time'' through space by observation of matter or a medium.

Space-time = 0 to infinite always with no start unless occupied by matter or a medium.

Science accepts without little afterthought, I am an improver with a whole lot of after thought.

When you are recording a race cars lap time, you are not recording the race cars time, you are using the car and marker points to record your own time watching the car.  Using a velocity to mark a length in time of your own time.
You can take away the car and observe a static track , your time is the same.

Well, if you've got any brilliant ideas in your head, you need to learn to express them more clearly so that you don't confuse everyone to the point that they can't work out what your argument is. Your first post didn't set things up very well.

Now you say that there's no time in empty space, so time only exists in that space when matter passes through it. This means that if we take an empty chunk of space called Jimmy, we can throw an elephant through it today, then leave it empty for a year before throwing a tiger through it. From the point of view of Jimmy, there is no time between the two events. What does this mean for the chunks of space on either side of it? Let's say we throw the elephant and tiger into Jimmy from a chunk of space called Sandy and they are caught by a friend in another chunk of space on the other side of Jimmy called Hamish. We throw the elephant through Jimmy from Sandy and it arrives in Hamish. We then wait a year and leave Jimmy empty, but time does not exist in Jimmy while it's empty. We then throw the tiger into Jimmy from Sandy and it arrives in Hamish just after the elephant, a whole year before we threw it. This would happen if no time has passed at all in Jimmy between the elephant and the tiger.

However, you can argue that the tiger takes its own time with it and that its time is tied to the time of the elephant across the timeless void of Jimmy, so the separation of a year is maintained when it arrives in Hamish. What this reveals then is that space doesn't have time in it at all, but time is held solely in matter like elephants and tigers - the space these animals occupy has no time, but they (the animals) have time. An empty space of one size has no time and an empty inflated area of space later on has no time either, so an empty region of space can expand over time without having any time in it - it expands by magic without increasing in size moment by moment through a progression controlled under time.

Your new theory will be a magnificent manifestation of witchcraft.

From the point of view of Jimmy, there is no time between the two events. What does this mean for the chunks of space on either side of it? Let's say we throw the elephant and tiger into Jimmy from a chunk of space called Sandy and they are caught by a friend in another chunk of space on the other side of Jimmy called Hamish. We throw the elephant through Jimmy from Sandy and it arrives in Hamish. We then wait a year and leave Jimmy empty, but time does not exist in Jimmy while it's empty. We then throw the tiger into Jimmy from Sandy and it arrives in Hamish just after the elephant, a whole year before we threw it. This would happen if no time has passed at all in Jimmy between the elephant and the tiger.

However, you can argue that the tiger takes its own time with it and that its time is tied to the time of the elephant across the timeless void of Jimmy, so the separation of a year is maintained when it arrives in Hamish. What this reveals then is that space doesn't have time in it at all, but time is held solely in matter like elephants and tigers - the space these animals occupy has no time, but they (the animals) have time. An empty space of one size has no time and an empty inflated area of space later on has no time either, so an empty region of space can expand over time without having any time in it - it expands by magic without increasing in size moment by moment through a progression controlled under time.

Your new theory will be a magnificent manifestation of witchcraft.

That was funny I couldn't stop laughing.

Well, if you've got any brilliant ideas in your head, you need to learn to express them more clearly so that you don't confuse everyone to the point that they can't work out what your argument is. .......

Like you I find the OP's ideas and arguments impossibly confused. A central assumption concerns the measurement of time. The OP consistently misreports history as showing that time=distance. To set the record straight:

A brief history of time (mmm, might use that as title of my next book)

Early people viewed the sun going around the earth and could measure midday using a simple stick in the ground. From there the sundial was firmly established by the Egyptians as a method of measuring time by means of angular movement. They divided day and night each into 12 parts (their duodecimal system). The sundial was never able to measure seconds and did not relate time to distance.
Variable hours based on the seasons were used until the invention of mechanical clocks in 16C when small units of time could be measured. At that stage units were borrowed from the Greeks who had devised the method of measuring angles in degrees, dividing the degree into 60 minutes and the minute into 60 seconds, a system we still use today in timekeeping.
Along the way to our modern system there have been many ways of measuring time and it is possible that today we might easily be measuring time in litres of water, cubits of sand, length of a pendulum or, the one I really like, the standard candle. Think of the light physicists measuring the speed of light in meters/candle! Is light faster than a candle?
At no point in history did we ever measure time as distance, this is a fabrication by the OP and all his consequential fabrications fall as a result (to use his own 'logic').

There are many other fabrications, that 0=1, he claims there is no spacetime and no time dilation, but offers no proof. He falsely believes "the obvious avoidance of my other threads by members tells me that my ideas are pretty much un-arguable" , which shows a poor understanding of how this forum works.

I have toyed with the idea that the OP is a troll, someone on TNS or another forum having a laugh and intending to reveal themselves on April 1st. It makes more sense to me than any of the 'theories' propounded here!

A Sundial is not measuring time, it is measuring the relative movement of the shadow compared to the Suns position in the sky.
Not only is this quite wrong but it shows that you don't know how physicists "define" time. Time is a description of the changes that occur in the universe. For example: consider a ball rolling down a hill. The role that time plays here is merely used to describe the location of the ball as it occupies different places in space. We say that the position changes "with time." In the same way the shadow that a Sundial casts on a dial is exactly what it means to measure time.

My interpretation of time is not incorrect because when science keeps agreeing with me about the origin of time,  science is agreeing with me.
I can promise you that's not true. Science is what scientists do and since I'm a scientist (a physicist to be exact) I can tell you how myself and all of my colleagues all over the world think of time and its as described in the above link.

Where you got the idea that you're correct is beyond me. You most certainly never provided a reference to a textbook where any respectable physicist describes it in the same way you do.

''consider a ball rolling down a hill. The role that time plays here is merely used to describe the location of the ball as it occupies different places in space''

The ball rolling down a hill's speed and distance travelled defines your time watching the ball.

If you are a Physicist you know very well on a sundial there is relative movement of the shadow.

''I can promise you that's not true. Science is what scientists do and since I'm a scientist (a physicist to be exact) I can tell you how myself and all of my colleagues all over the world think of time and its as described in the above link.''

I can promise you that yourself and your colleagues accepted time without question of afterthought.
