Yes Time is reflective in the relative Energy. As mass and speed increases so does Energy, the opposite happens in Time ( it decreases or slows )http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_dilationhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photon Of course Gravity and space/time play parts in these equations out in space.

all mass has energy ( E=MC2 ), a Photon IS energy but has no mass, but does have momentum, hence E2 = m2c4 + p2c2 Time ( movement/progression ) slows down ( caused by the drag on matter as speed increases ) as speed increases and energy also increases. SO - speed + = energy + = time - A photon is the only object in the universe so far found, that is NOT relative to the observer, but is relative to everything.. any 2 observers ( one moving & one stationary ) that agree on the speed of light, have to disagree on time and distance..

It seems there is a different interpretation of what I understand is Einstein Time in that there seems to be a suggestion that Time flows. As I understand it Time does not flow and it is interactions between masses that create the impression of Time flowing , i.e. events measured by other events. Time gives a rate (faster or slower) to the interactions and nothing more. Everything, surely, can be explained within these terms?

It might be plausible for a photon to be the carrier of progression, hence time. After all, everything ceases to exist if there is no light ( photons ),

Sim, I agree but I think you are talking about clocks. Clocks measure the local rate of events but this notion of Time has no universal (global) effect. Time, as I understand it, is a by-product of mass and or mass and speed and it affects all events without exception.I can hear your howl of protest but clock time as I see it measures the fastest rate at which one mass can interact with another (Entropy) but now add universal Time to get the true rate.I don't know if this makes sense?

Sim, as I understand it, time and dimensions are closely linked, i.e. a reliable clock is needed to know how big something is. An atomic clock seems to be the best that is available to us. Universal (Einstein) time affects this kind of clock as it does all others. There may be some doubt about by how much our clocks are affected in total as the local mass and galactic speed seems confused these days. However, I am sure better and more thorough explanations are available.

If gravitational length contraction doesn't exist then time of slow objects is less slowed by gravitation than time of very fast objects is slowed only by the same gravitation.Then something is important :does fast motion or slow motion create time in atomic clock?
