Warping time with speed
« on: April 27, 2004, 01:32:58 PM »
I was going to talk about this in another forum but since you guys are just so cool  ;D I’m going to see what you think.

Time slows down for an object the faster it goes and time seems to speed up with the rest of the universe for that object. But how do you measure how quickly an object is moving? Speed is in reference to another object but time is not the same, you can tell which object is moving faster or slower in time. Since you can tell which object is moving faster or slower in time you can hypothesize that the object moving faster in time is moving slower in speed, and the object moving slower in time is moving faster in speed. Since we are moving around the sun and the sun moving around the galactic core it would be possible to further "Slow" an object down, effectively speeding up the time that the object experiences.

So what do you think of my idea?  8)

Sounds kind of like Einstein's relativity theory, but I'm not terrible knowledgable on the whole thing. I'm gonna steal your idea for my next coffeehouse discussion with the guys.

You are trying to use time as the object of reference.. Speed is always measured relative to the observer. It makes no sense to guage speed by measuring the rate of time passing by..

Why not?

Exactly what Geodome said, you measure everything with velocity relative to an observer. It is bothersome and not useful to try to measure in time,

1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.

I'm just trying to use that to get my idea across that you could speed time up for an object.

What was the idea, I can't seem to extract it from the first post.

That you could speed time up for an object by slowing it down. Kinda like when an object speeds up time slows down for it.

Right, some experiments were done in space concerning that. There was 2 completely synchronized time pieces (some sophisticated stuff) and it turns out time moved a couple nanoseconds slower in orbit as opposed to on the ground. I think more than speed, gravity has an effect on it. Recently, NASA launched a new satellite around the polar area to look more into this effect.

Then what is the basis of comparision between two independent events then?

I don't think there is a concrete basis for comparison unless both events are in the same vicinity, same gravity, that kind of stuff. Everything is relative to everything else in some fashion, but its been proven that time isn't absolute, the definition of a second can vary. For all practical purposes though, observation will do.
