We will discover that in certain moments, like car accidents, the brain can decrease “the amount of the reaction” that takes place before the next snapshot and hence give the impression that time is going slower.
ok, so does that mean there is evidence that we could see in slow motion if we could figure out why this happens and control it?
There is no such thing as time.
Time exists only because there is a witness to "The Reaction" (the continuation of energy changing form).
The illusion of time, is the rate we comprehend the reaction. In the same way that a movie camera works, our brains take snapshots of the surrounding environment and makes our comprehension seem to flow at a continuous rate (what we call time).
Firstly, thanks taking the time to reply to my post.
Gravity doesn't effect time. It effects the rate of the reaction.
But how can "time" be affected? Time isn't a physical property of the universe like mass, energy and light is? Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that the rate of the reaction at location A is accelerated relative to the reaction at location B due to gravity?
Every form of energy we have discussed is known only as a function of other variables, and I have been careful to say internal energy function, potential energy function, etc. Functions are pencil-and-paper constructs. I can't show you a function that has any substance, and that is why I can't show you a chunk of energy or why I can't define it or yell you what it is. It is just a mathematical or abstract or just a group of numbers. Thus we have no energy meters, not device we stick into a system which will record its energy. The whole thing is man-made.
I understand that GPS's rely on taking into account the proven theory of relativity. Isn't that just because the rate of the reaction is faster in a satellite relative to an object on earth.
I'm not saying that theory of relativity doesn't hold true. Just the way we think about it is maybe incorrect.
Wouldn't it make more sense that gravity is affecting the mechanics of reaction rather than the measurement of change?
Once again, I appreciate the feedback.
I'm probably just a crackpot but I'm glad your not treating me with contempt.
