Time, the last frontier, is finally being seriously questioned with proposed “new life”, “new view” perspectives.
Time, (with its sidekick Space), our contemporary perceptual obstacle to the future of physics, advanced energy systems, to sustainable evolving LIFE itself, is now being questioned at the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics by theoretical physicist Lee Smolin.
Time Reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe [Lee Smolin, Henry Reich]
Smolin asserts that overturning the existing orthodoxy is the best hope for finding solutions to contemporary physics problems, such as bringing gravity into line with the rest of the currently accepted models, the nature of the quantum world and its unification with spacetime and cosmology
Did Lee Smolin read StarSteps? ……….Not yet, but is approaching the same conclusions.
Taking the extremely limited contemporary concept of time and space’s role from the E=MC2 biography, we can easily note the obvious and serious flaws keeping E=MC2 stuck in radioactive fission and fusion. …….. in spite of the rumored tests done in the 1940s on Einstein’s incomplete – but testable 1928 Unified Field Theory.
David Bodanis’s analogy of our understanding the effects resulting with approaching the speed of light, the quantity C: (page 81) “As the cars hurried by (approaching light speed), we’d not only see them as getting more massive, changing size, we’d also notice that time seemed to be slowing down inside of them. These effects are summarized in relativity by saying that when someone watches an object recede away from them, the object will be seen to undergo mass dilation, length changes, and time dilation. The bystanders will see it in the car; the driver of the car, looking back, will see it in the bystanders.
The Radius of Curvature of All Natural Law
A much clearer and expanded definition of time can be obtained here StarSteps (StarSteps 3, chapter six), which presents to us the unique position from which we can, from a single point in time, observe ourselves occupying three rather widely separated positions in space.
Those that can handle cognitive dissonance and take the time to read StarSteps’ fresh view of time will find (but for some substitution consistencies in “common denominators”) that there is not so much wrong with the math, as it is in the shallow interpretations of the math.
MATHEMATICAL ERROR OR EYESIGHT LIMITATION: The theory of relativity does not say that man cannot travel faster than the speed of light, it merely says that no one on earth will be able to see him do it.
