Time dilation is an effect and not a cause. As such it cannot affect anything.
We know clocks slow down their tick rate if their velocity increases relative to an observer, but what happens to particles? Also, muons seem to decay slower. It is considered that they don't have an internal structure that evolves with time but it doesn't mean they don't have an internal structure. For example they could cycle through random states until a decay state occurs, with the probability for a decay state being constant throughout their lifespan.If we go down at the particle level SR doesn't quite make sense anymore. I've seen answers that say that for an object, like a clock or a lifeform all internal processes slow down, but for a particle what slows down. I don't think you can say something slows down from a SR perspective. If their internal causality slows down then the c constant has no meaning.
Muons are affected by a) velocity and b) the gravitational field. Both of these produce the effect of time dilation.
An absolute time requires an absolute frame of reference. Relativity is not compatible with such a notion. Since relativity has been verified experimentally in numerous was then you would be better off adjusting your views.
