“The crucial question there was: Compared to what?
I recommend a Cesium atomic clock. These are known to be able to measure time dilation on Earth and in its vicinity (the GPS satellites have pre-distorted atomic clocks, so they run "correctly" when they are on orbit, as seen by an observer on Earth).
A timing synchronisation variation relative to other timing synchronisations!
how in any way is a Caesium clock related to time other than abstract synchronisation with other clocks?
In 1960, the Caesium clock was initially calibrated to the length of the average day in the year 1900, as estimated by astronomers. ...sorry, you cannot view external links. To see them, please
REGISTER or LOGIN was defined as 1 second = 9,192,631,770 oscillations of Cesium.
Exactly, humans change the parameters of time...
Humans change the way time is measured, but not time itself.
... an abstract creation of synchronise process.
If time did not pass, nothing would happen,
I wrote this news piece recently to cover a publication from Germany regarding optical clocks, which are the successor to the caesium clock. There's some background in there which you might find helpful.
