How does mass become the past? They are two different thing, aren't they?
Time isn't the same everywhere in space/time.
"Mass is the past" and "Space is the present." How does this fit in with Einstein's relativity?
What if the math were right and big bang was a white hole? Outward motion, all arrows going out from a point, a focal point of motion with the smallest motion as the most energetic. How big would this focal point have to be before it broke apart into individuals focal points, must have been repulsive energy at that time. Today we still feel this force at the rate of 9.8 meters per second per second of out ward acceleration we call gravity. Newton saw this force as an attractive force with the apple fell from the tree to the ground, also noting that all mass fell at an equal rate. Still holds today.Einstein told us not only can we think of gravity this way but we can also think of it as the earth dilating out to meet the apple not as a force but a outward motion. Maybe the skydiver has a true look at our temporal motion, an affine space of dilating matter. The present is the edge of the universe I see from the outside only, matter, held in place by individual but continuous motion from big bang. It is the simultaneous nature of atoms themselves as proven by gps and used as the basic time of cosmology that makes me think that atoms are not vibrating but are dilating. The dilating momentum of energy is the mass we measure and the reason that mass resists a change to its position.
If I understand you correctly, are you proposing the expansion of space within the particles of matter? Whereby the collective "dilation" of matter results in the phenomenon we call gravity.
QuoteIf I understand you correctly, are you proposing the expansion of space within the particles of matter? Whereby the collective "dilation" of matter results in the phenomenon we call gravity.If you think of an atom vibrating in space, a static variable of one, its duration is ever increasing. I think the expansion of space includes a dilating time and yes it is the dilating momentum of matter we measure as gravity.
You don't think that the accelerated frame we call earth should be included when describing tidal forces?
Gravity is a result of space/time compression occurring around mass and not the result of an expanding or oscillating material volume.
QuoteGravity is a result of space/time compression occurring around mass and not the result of an expanding or oscillating material volume. When I think of the accelerated frame as a positive flow of time such as a dilating earth. Then it is easy to see how we see the same thing as a negative motion in space, after all the two are opposites.
Just how do you explain a "dilating earth"? If one assumes that the earth is dilating, why don't we see the moon and sun drawing nearer? It's difficult to understand how you could come to that conclusion.
Time as in a dilating present the deeper into the well you move slowing the tick rate of clocks is why I think of this as a warping in time that I do not see in space.
But surely, you must acknowledge that the moon is in the same frame as the earth, and if the earth is dilating wouldn't the moon be doing so as well?
Most of us know what time dilation refers to the perceived advance of events relative to observers frame of reference.
I think that the Moon and the Earth are separate frames, each centered in its own time, over lapping in a relative space/time. In my mind I see every single entity as a dilating time
Maybe you could explain Affine space for us?
Mark McCutcheon's theory
Mark McCutcheon's theory Did he think mass was the past?
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?
