time- the measurable event of change.

if I said the sky is red you would say it is blue

Quote from: Thebox on 25/01/2016 09:06:41time- the measurable event of change.Wrong - indeed meaningless. Time is the dimension that separates sequential events. If you don't understand the definition, you won't get very far with any discussion of time.

wrong, n-dimensional space is that which separates sequential events. Time does not exist. And that in which I was discussing with Colin, is how science presently measures the rate of the none existing time.

Not as far as I was aware.I was discussing the consequences of you using your measure of what you call 'rate of time' and your trying to use it to imply anything about time. The consequence is that your 'rate of time' varies depending on your position on the planet, which is of no use to anyone. Also I don't see any relationship to time that results from knowing London circles the earth at a slower mph than a location on the equator.You are doing little more than looking at the speed of a car, it makes no difference to time how fast or slow it goes.

now do you understand about ''time dilation''?

The speed of light does not depend on the relative speed of the observer and the observed - Special Relativity.

I observe this differently

if we imagine an observer travelling at c at a velocity approaching a light emitter, the observer will observe c to be twice as fast

You have performed no experiments, you have not analysed any experiments to see how they work.Quote from: Thebox on 27/01/2016 11:36:49if we imagine an observer travelling at c at a velocity approaching a light emitter, the observer will observe c to be twice as fast Imagine all you like, reality continues despite your imagination.I will leave you to your views and ideas. With such a fundamental misunderstanding we are going nowhere in any discussion.I realise you think I've got it wrong, but that's not a problem to me.

The axiom is wrong. c is measurably constant for all observers. Try measuring it for yourself before stating that it is variable.
