Temporal Disturbances !

(1/2) > >>

neilep:
If temporal disturbances exist !...say for instance.......the ability to purposefully change time....does it cause a temporal wave that affects the whole universe ?...does it happen all over everywhere at the same time ? or like a wave traveling through space  ?

ie: a place far far away won't be affected by it till the temporal wave reaches it !!



carpe diem ....tell me now !

syhprum:
Temporal changes are associated with accelerations to near the speed of light in local reference plain(see twin paradox)so they do not appear to spread out.

Ron Hughes:
Time slows for any particle accelerated with respect to the observer. Even if that acceleration is only a tiny amount, time slows by a tiny amount.

You don't need to be going very fast for the apparent time to be measurably different. We need to be aware that there is no  Universal Clock somewhere, ticking away. Actually, this is only a notion which grew up when everyone started to have watches. For farmers and the like, it was never important to know GMT. Local Noon has always been more important for rustic and fishing types. And that has nothing to do with Relativity.

JP:
I imagine gravitational waves would have some effect on time, since they're "waves" in space-time.
