|WHAT CAUSES TIME?
IF WE KNOW THE CAUSE OF SLOWING OF TIME WE CAN POTENTIALLY KNOW THE CAUSE OF TIME
In the previous page we were able to demonstrate that the basic underlaying mechanism of time appears to be presence of motion and
forces. We perceive change at a sharp focal point the present. Past is just memory and future is non existent, it is more of a mental projection
based on past experiences. The passage of time and the feeling that past and future have some spacial existence is an illusion created by
our mind in trying to explain the world filled with change. With coming of special and general relativity in early part of 20th century the
revolutionary concept that time can be slowed came into picture. This is an extremely important as if we know the cause of slowing of
time we can potentially know the cause of time.
Normally the gravitational fields surrounding large masses are thought to slow time through gravitational acceleration this concept is
taken directly taken from special relativity where many books try to sell the idea that acceleration experienced by the travelling twin is cause of
slowing of time. This is totally false and some books on relativity will point this out.
Let me make it clear that I strongly believe in time dilation affect of motion. I however do not agree on any explanation given in textbooks
for time dilation of the travelling twin. The twin paradox arises because the relativist refuse to acknowledge that space has structure also that
motion and rest are not relative but real. This concept appears difficult to prove however rotating objects can be easily differentiated from non
rotating ones due to the presence of centrifugal forces. This cannot be explained away by some instantaneous effect of the rest of the
universe. This to me clearly shows that motion and rest are in relation to structure of space. In general relativity space can be curved warped.
To do that you need a structure. Space also is teeming with virtual particles and may be source of infinite energy.
There are however many problems with assigning structure to space. Number one being the Michelson and Morley's experiment which
showed the surprising finding that speed of light is a constant. Other obvious major problem is how can huge masses like earth pass through
space without any resistance. There is a beautiful solution to this conundrum if we understand that the expanding space is cause of all motion
and forces in the universe.
Procrastination is the thief of time.
VELOCITY AND ENERGY
Energy is the quantitative measure of motion and forces. Energy is another aspect of time and also comes from the expansion of space.
Energy measurement takes into account both motion and forces within an object. Velocity or speed is the qualitative measure of motion.
Velocity measures how fast or slow a motion is compared to another more basic motion like the speed of light while energy takes into account
motion as well as forces within a mass
Time is possibly an emergent concept that arises secondary to the presence of motion and forces. It is proposed here that the motion and
forces are due to expansion of the universe. Slower expansion of space around large masses like earth and sun could be considered as the
cause of slower time linking time to the expansion of space. Gravity can be explained on basis of tendency of matter composed of billions of
particles orbiting at tremendous velocities to move from faster to slower time when placed in a time differential. This explains why gravity is
always attractive. This new approach towards understanding time eliminates the infinite gravity or singularity of black holes. It also shows us
that not only gravity of large masses but motion of objects also can curve space which leads to the beautiful mechanism of length
contraction. It leads to a deeper understanding of why time slows with motion and in gravity. It also provides a clear explanation of why there
cannot be a twin paradox.
This new understanding of time linking it with the expansion of space may have been already confirmed by the discovery that the universal
expansion appears to be accelerating. If time is indeed related to the expansion of space and our time is slowing down then as we make
measurements of light emitted by distant supernova (when time was faster) we will be measuring their frequency changes from our slower
time. This will give an illusion that the universal expansion is accelerating. These predictions are not based on any exotic phenomenon but
on Einstein’s relativity and can be easily tested. This new approach in understanding of time, motion, and gravity could bring about a
revolution in physics.
