# Time measurement

## Recommended Posts

At the risk of sounding retarded, isn't time simply a measurement like meters and gallons? Aren't days and years based on Earth's position relative to the sun? If so, then time travel would be based on going to the Earth at a particular position relative to the sun but the Earth repeats the same positions so then how would time travel be possible?

You don't sound more retarded than anyone of us :-) I understand what you're trying to say, but time is what's being measured and the units are seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and so on.

• 13 years later... TIME is only measured because it was created, however time does not exist, just awareness of time. We are all travelers through time, however the only thing changing is our awareness.

Bookkeeper time (scalar vector) is as you say, But...

According to another institute member, time (magnitude vector) is the following:

Theory: F = {[(m/ (1-(v^2/c^2)) ^(1/2)]-m}a

Where F (energy time) is the force of the ground state energy (length) on mass as it approaches the speed of light.

So, time (dark energy/dark mass energy perhaps) is the gamma function equation, sort of.

Still learning :)

How is the Gamma function is related to string theory?

Jay Wacker, high energy physicist with some knowledge of String Theory

The Veneziano amplitude describes the quantum mechanical amplitude for two strings scattering off of each other as a function of the in-going and out-going momenta of the particles.

This amplitude is shockingly simple:

T(s,t,u)=A(s,t)+A(t,u)+A(u,s)

where s,t,u

are Mandelstam variables and

A(a,b)=B(−α(a),−α(b))

and B(x,y)

is the beta function

B(x,y)=Γ(x)Γ(y)Γ(x+y)

Here you see the appearance of Gamma functions. Here α

is a linear function known as a Regge trajectory:

α(s)=α′x+α0.

The reason why it is a Gamma function is that poles (singularities that behave like 1/(x−x0)

as x→x0

) are really important for the analytic structure of scattering matrices. The periodic (single) poles along the negative real axis of the Gamma function are the reason why this relatively simply special function appears. Amusingly, it’s the behavior of the negative axis that is important not the relation to factorial behavior (if you could separate the two).

Amazingly, this amplitude wasn’t derived, instead was inferred by simply properties like “cross symmetry” which says that if you exchange an in-coming particle with one of the out-going particles, the amplitude should be the same.

Another amazing aspect is that this amplitude had been discovered before by Mahiko Suzuki for the exact same purpose as Gabriele Veneziano had been trying to solve. Mahiko Suzuki was a young postdoc in Japan and went ot his supervisor and described his discovery to him, and the response was: you derive amplitudes from first principles, you don’t just guess them. Obviously, this is an important lesson about listening to old people about the importance of achievements.

The important property of the Gamma function is that it has poles on a straight line (the real line). The property of world-sheet duality in String Theory requires a scattering amplitude that has poles where particles appear, which is on a straight line. It were Gabriele Veneziano, Joel Shapiro and Murray Gell-Mann who found a combination of Gamma functions that was a possible solution to this problem. Amazingly, their solution later turned out to be unique in the sense that no other possible solution has ever has been found. Their work is now known as the Veneziano amplitude, with the following formula: Veneziano’s discovery is nicely explained in this video:

I wrote a small post and request comments. This is time study at its worst for the working class. Standard is a word that manipulation by contract sounds to many to mean quality but in reality is quantity demanded. I hve seen the bad side of this happen in the workplace.

Please get as many social media friends to make comments on this post. The partnership trade is going to bury the standard word as accepted by everyone if we dont speak up now.
