liquidspacetime: As a fellow aetherist, I have to argue somewhat with your model of how transmissions take place in a universal aether.According to my model of the aether (for the basic model, you can refer to my October Thread discussing how an aether would account for gravitation), the way energy transmissions occur in the aether (including transmission of light) is by conduction of a vibrating energic impulse from aetheric unit-to-unit, contiguously. There also occur simultaneous resonances "to the sides" which affect other aether units, larger "aetheroidal" units, and quantum-scale units such as the photons that we see with the naked eye. All these occur virtually instantaneously in space, via the contiguity of the aether.
In my model, the fact that atomic clocks are slower in space is because space is less energized than on earth. -Earth has a magnetic energy field, which makes the aether units vibrate faster than they do in space, so time passes faster on earth than in space.
David,Clocks do run slower in an airplane or a space vehicle (www.physicsoftheuniverse.com/topics_relativity_special.html.)
A couple of real-life examples may help to make the effects of special relativity clearer. Experiments have been carried out where two identical super-accurate atomic clocks were synchronized, and then one was flown around the world on an airplane while the other stayed at home. The clock which travelled recorded marginally less passage of time than the other (as predicted by the theory), although the difference was of course minimal due to the relatively slow speeds involved. Our fastest military airplanes can only travel at about 1/300,000 of the of the speed of light, so the time dilation effect γ is only about a ten-thousandth of 1%.
Are you sure you can trust your information source?
Even if we stay with standard physics theory, how can time pass faster in space, if a hypothetical outer-space-traveler ages less after a lengthy space voyage, than the people he had left, back on earth? -This is a familiar and generally-accepted hypothetical example in science.
