What is the true nature of 'time'?
« on: 16/09/2015 12:29:12 »
If you have come across the word ‘reify’ before, you can skip the next sentence. If you haven’t, it is defined in the dictionary as follows: “To regard or treat an abstraction, as if it had a concrete or material existence.”

Probably, like me, your first thought is about fundamental religious beliefs such as the existence of a ‘supreme being’. But as scientists, we too have fundamental beliefs embedded in our theories of physics and the ones which spring to mind are ‘time’ and ‘space’. The aim of this article is to ‘de-reify’ these embedded beliefs, particularly ‘time’, with the expectation that it could give a different perception upon the mainstream theory of ‘relative movement’.

The analysis starts with a widely accepted but inexplicable everyday phenomenon. The phenomenon in question is the inability of living things to sense their own movement when travelling at a constant velocity. For here we stand upon a planet that is rotating at a speed of approximately 1000 miles per hour (mph) at its equator and we are completely unconscious of either the speed of our rotation or even the direction of rotation!  We understand that the force of gravity is stopping us being thrown off into space, but we just don’t remotely sense the velocity that we are moving at.

For not only is the spin of the earth moving us around, but we are also in an orbit around the sun that moves us at an added velocity of approximately 16,500 mph and the solar system itself orbits within its galaxy at an additional velocity of approximately 500,000 mph. So if the vectors of all these velocities become lined up, then we would be travelling at 1% of the speed of light and we just wouldn’t know it! It is a remarkable phenomenon, obvious perhaps, but understated for what it is. Because without it, life would probably be impossible.
 
The ramifications of this phenomenon requires a leap of logic, for if this is true for organic structures, such as plants, animals, insects and humans, it must also be true for inorganic structures, such as an asteroid ploughing its way through the vastness of space or the rocks of the earth’s crust. The logic behind this assertion is that all objects, inanimate and animate, are constructed from the same basic materials: electrons and nuclei, which all function together using the same forces and relationships. So if the electrons and nuclei that make up a human being are unaffected by ‘uniform movement’, then so are the electrons and nuclei of inanimate objects, such as the asteroid tracking its way across the universe or the rocks that make up the earth’s crust.

A rational way to explain this unique phenomenon is that “all bodies of matter moving at a uniform velocity and on a constant straight line direction are at rest”. What ‘at rest’ means is that the internal functioning of the electron structure of a ‘body of matter’ is completely unaffected by uniform movement, whether it is an animate or inanimate object.

Einstein placed the restriction of ‘uniform motion’ for his derivation of the ‘special theory of relativity’, but if the ‘at rest’ axiom is true for a body of matter in uniform motion, then it explains why all photons released in any direction by the ‘energised electrons’ of a light source, will all be released at exactly the same ‘velocity’ regardless of the velocity or direction of movement of the light source, just as long as the light source continues to move at a constant velocity and tracks a straight line direction.

If this is true for an emitting light source, it is also true for a receiving body of matter which is also moving in uniform motion. Its electron structure is also ‘at rest’ and so it receives the light photon from the emitting source at exactly the same velocity at which it was dispatched from the light source.

The distance covered by the photon between the emitter and receiver simply depends upon the location of the light source upon its emission of the photon and the location of the receiver upon its receipt of the photon. The ‘transfer time’ between the two is an outcome of this process, not a factor in it.

So if ‘time’ is not a player in this process, then has Einstein’s theory of ‘special relativity’ arisen because we have ‘reified’ the concept of ‘time’, giving it a concrete existence when in reality, it has none?

A well written post and of good content.  Most members on most forum's will argue ''time'', as if it was a real physical thing, instead of a measurement, of an increment of an existence, in a specific dimension of space, of matter, at a specific ''time''.
Time is a fundamental error in science, time came before science and this is why science has followed the wrong path , an error in logic was flawed and   nobody considered that ''time'' was relative to motion of the earth relative to the sun, and early time recorders, were based on a distance travelled of the rotation of the earth relative to the sun. I.e shadows move relative to the sun and rotation of the earth.
The purpose of time is to measure an increment of existence, a speed etc, but as a something that exists without process, it does not exist,
1 second = 0.0288 mile approx


try it they told me I am crazy and deluded for years, time does not exist in space, but time exists in matter, time is decay, an increment of something in a period of infinite.

All the values of space add up to zero, only matter has values, and people evolve to not feel the movement of the earth, we are born into the constant velocity so simply dont notice it except we do notice it if we observe the stars at night, lye on your back and look up for a while, we are born into the constant of light, that is why light is invisible in space and as see through as glass, space is transparent to light, the light passes through the cbmr, cbmr is the conduit that lights up by increased energy passing through it, remove the increased energy and it goes dark, but cbmr remains showing the conduit just needs charge, it is all radiation and that is all what space is and emr, radiation that does not show itself until reacted by a reactor such as matter, the light does not even wave until the light actually hits something, the linearity of light is why we do not see it, quite simple really. Gravity mechanism is the groun dis a more negative than the core, so the ground is attracted to the core, but unlike air that heats and risess by polarisation of a greater positive and its hybrid nature of both polarities, and ice floats because water it is attracted to the sky, but at the same time it wants to sink attracted to the core,
apart form that thats about it about time, it is meerly man made and reality has been lost to what time actually is. I may add time was created for vanity and fear, eternal licksers of youth etc, sommeone wanted to know how long we lived for, vwery simple

Thanks for your approval of my post. It is reassuring to have another who views 'time' as an abstract concept that has been invented by humans. In addition, I understood that you also recognise that the 'process of change' affects everything in the universe on an ongoing basis and is the reality of existence, with or without human beings!

Energy is the spin points of your lattice throughout the universe. Time is motion and motion is energy c spin of the lattice points. Humanity exists because of the motion of time. The rotation of electrons is like the DNA helix.

I think the mass and spin of individual galaxies may create time relative to that galaxy, but that there is one universal moment of 'now' which enables non-local events to occur simultaneously even if on opposite sides of the universe.

If then something is abstract, that is ...."does NOT have a real or concrete existence".....then you have assumed that this means that it does not exists.  For example....Time is abstract therefore does not "exist".  Yet we are talking about it.  Abstraction exists.  For example

1.Love
2.Hate
3.Math


All three things abstract. Yet all three things exists.  I know so from the consequences of their existences.  Further I would pose that all things exists.  All things.  It is only that they, from a given perspective, are abstract or empirical.  All things exist except one thing.  That is "nothing".  Zero is not the measure of nothing.  Time is not zero.  There is not only one moment.  There is only one moment perceived by us.  It is a matter of science that "nothing" does NOT exists.  It has never been seen or documented in any fashion.  If then nothing does not exist.  Then something has to.  Zero does not represent "nothing".  Not even in mathematics.  There is not zero time, there is no zero thought, there is not zero space, there is not zero of any given element.  It is only that I do or do not have/perceive these things.

There is only an infinite string of things, to be measured and observed.  Space and Value.  Space and Time.

I also think time may be a hindering element .. energy of some sort which causes matter to decay .. if we remove time from the equation do radioactive elements still decay?
