My duration in the present, my age is increasing, to slow down my clock I can either move deeper into our gravity well, or move faster either one will increase my duration in my present thereby slowing my clock.
Mass on the other hand is my anchor to the past always centered in time relative to a changing present that I can not see.
Park yourself at the event horizon of a black hole and ask yourself who's time is advancing faster. For you and your clock, time seems to advance at it's normal rate. But what you observe is everything outside speeding up. For those outside, they see you frozen at the event horizon. You see time advancing faster and those outside see your time frozen. Who's time has really slowed down? Depends on who's frame of reference you choose to gage the advance by.
People confuse the terms "Mass and Matter". Matter and mass/energy are very different things.
when you define a location or frame as being: "An anchor to the past," you should probably use the term "Matter" and not mass.
the universe behaves like a giant mass, and that the speed of light is proportional to the distance from the center of the universe (big bang/white hole)
What if the universe is behaving like a giant gravity well and we are halfway up the slope?
