I read a Science Fiction story once that assumed that life could exist on a neutron star....Assuming this premise:They would see events happening much faster "on the outside" than were happening locally Events on a similar-mass neutron star would happen at the familiar rate.Although if your ambient temperature is 1 million degrees or more, presumably vision would use X-Rays; if the surrounding medium has a density millions of times higher than water, hearing would use sonar that travels at near light-speed. I wonder how much of the non X-Ray universe you would be able to see? The story suggested that the incredibly strong magnetic fields that exist on some neutron stars would make it easier to move in certain directions than othersIf your whole world is 10km across, the story speculated that the life in such an environment would be very small, and move very fast - perhaps millions of times faster than the human timescale.(The story might have been "Dragon's Egg", by Robert L. Forward?)
