# What is time?

## Recommended Posts

Like i'm not asking about the measuring time.......like let's say that each moment we pass is x.......then like what happens to it afterwards.....and do we pass on form an x to other x that leads us to future !

To me, this is a relative way of markating time.Time flows, but can also eddy.Pinter

I even posted this beforehand but most weren't able to understand it.

Firstly forget about time and all the concept that you have for it.

Lets suppose that every moment that we pass is known as timex.

Then what if like there are parallel timex dimensions side by side to each other and we constantly pass from one to other in a moment.......and in the next we are in the next timex......so like at any particular moment we are only in one timex........so at the moment we travel to the next one-the future timex are still there so that we could enter them-does the past timex still remain there or would they be destroyed.

This is simply a theory and you can for sure go against it......but if you could get to the point that i'm trying to explain.....that would be great + or you could simply explain that what is this moment.....like where does the past go!

P.S:If you still can't understand what i'm trying to say.........do tell me,i'll simply attach some diagrams.

time = space

going to "future" is movement through space

but that space is "dimension above us", hence, we cannot really perceive it

What is time? That is a wonderful question. I suppose, that the one, who answers it, may receive a nobel prize.

Time=Timex...

We step from one to the other...

Timex comes in many styles and colors...

Even a special Timex for women...

Where does time go after it is past...??

Langoliers!!

Lets try talking it out a little, should we?

It feels like your trying to find a theory that fits with something you've already thought out.

This is not a theory. It's an opinion, In science the term "theory" has a very specific definition that goes far beyond a simple opinion. See scientific method and Popper's Principle (Falsifiability) for details.

Like, um, I mean like how many times can you use "like" in a sentence?

Seriously

Absolutely

I'm not joking. The concept of time is still not clear as far as I know. As many other things in the science, by the way.

Look at the formula of Instantaneous Angular Acceleration formula in this graph supplied by NASA.

Now do the high school algebra math and put time (t) on the left side. So (t) = ?

And you can calculate the time in relation to the acceleration and velocity of the object. The faster you move, the slower the time in general.

Time, is not a fixed variable, but a measurement that can be varied through the change of speed.

So, if the Earth's rotation speed was altered to any degree, is it implied that the slightest change in speed would affect time? Obviously the measured length of a day changes with relation to the Sun. I'm asking if the actual value of a second is distorted by a sudden shift in rotation speed.

The earth's rotation speed, earth's revolving speed around the sun, the sun's revolving speed around the milky way all contributed to the time as you know it. Even attitude (height) of your physical position on earth or above the earth (e.g. satellite) varies your perception of time. Also, the gravity (which is an acceleration) also effect time related to the object.

It is rotation in a rotation in a rotation in rotation etc. Have a look at this video to have a better concept.

The first video shows how the sun/solar system move around our galaxy - the milky way, in a wave form revolving around the centre of the galaxy.

I would say time is a mirror a copy of our own ''Time line''
