As you rightly say, "simultaneous" means [occurring] at the same time. This definition requires more than a single entity in order to achieve simultaneity. Thus "a simultaneous moment" is meaningless.
Quote from: Theboxfixed it. Not really.If you have not met it before, you might find this quote from Peter Lynds about the “instant” in time interesting: “Regardless of how small and accurate the value is made however, it cannot indicate a precise static instant in time at which a value would theoretically be precisely determined, because there is not a precise static instant in time underlying a dynamical physical process. If there were, all physical continuity, including motion and variation in all physical magnitudes would not be possible, as they would be frozen static at that precise instant, remaining that way. Subsequently, at no time is the relative position of a body in relative motion or a physical magnitude precisely determined, whether during a measured time interval, however small, or at a precise static instant in time, as at no time is it not constantly changing and undetermined. Thus, it is exactly due to there not being a precise static instant in time underlying a dynamical physical process, and the relative motion of body in relative motion or a physical magnitude not being precisely determined at any time, that motion and variation in physical magnitudes is possible: there is a necessary trade off of all precisely determined physical values at a time, for their continuity through time.”
Relative to space, all matter moves from one moment to the next moment simultaneously, time is simultaneous moments, everything experiences time at the same time at the same instant.
Movement relative to space has no scientific meaning. Think about a single object in empty space.
“all matter moves from one moment to the next moment simultaneously” That is an assumption you might have difficulty proving.
“time is simultaneous moments” How can you establish that they are not successive moments?
“everything experiences time at the same time at the same instant.” Either you didn’t actually mean what you said there, or you are arguing for Barbour’s “Platonia”.
OK so T = 1 unit of 'time'. Since everything experiences only the 'now' and since this now can be considered unity then T always equals 1 unit of time. Therefore time does not scale and is static. If time does not scale then no two events can ever occur for an individual particle since this would require a scalar time to separate them. Since nothing changes we have zero energy. However this zero value will be a unit of kinetic energy and not mass energy. The universe will have the same mass but no motion. Which begs the question of how the universe would get to its current state in such a scenario.
Does all this mean that superposition does not occur in. quantum physics.If not what is the time difference between the two items being in different places. AT THE SAME TIME?
''Things'' work just as well without time.
An interesting affect, relative to this discussion, which has been observed since 1826, is connected to photography and is called motion blur. Motion blur occurs when the shutter speed of the camera is slower than the motion speed of the action being photographed. The result is a blur in the photograph. If you analyze this recorded data; see below; since time is stopped in the photo, the difference in speed (position/time=0), appear as uncertainty in distance. The uncertainty of position gives us the impression of motion, even with time stopped in the photo. Time has stopped, but is conserved and appears as being spread out over distance to create space. One could argue that space is an artifact of time being discontinuous, due to the quantum nature of the universe; quantum time has discontinuities or stops, from which uncertainty in position appears. This allows space-time to be defined by quantum time. If you look below one can sense motion in the photo, even without any movement in time, because time has been conserved/transformed into uncertainty in position. The blur is simultaneity.
Speed, being distance traveled divided by TIME TAKEN,
