quote:Originally posted by Atomic-SAnother peculiarity requiring attention is that in general relativity, time is subject to other forms of distortion, with the result that the speed of remote light may appear to have a different speed than that of local light.
quote:Originally posted by PrajnaDhyanaOne of the weird things that quantum mechanics has shown us is that sub atomic particles are constantly coming into existence, seemingly from nothing, then exist for the smallest amounts of time imaginable, then vanish again into nothing. I would suggest to you that this might be because they move through time at a different rate than we do (and/or even a different direction). We can only perceive them when they pass through the same “slice” of time that we are currently in. So it appears to us that they materialize out of nothing, then vanish back into nothing, when in fact they have a continuous existence through space and time just as we do.

NOVA did a nice three part series on this called The Elegant Universe. You can watch it online here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/program_d.html
