Non-Linear Time
    #11255461 - 10/15/09 09:03 PM (8 years, 6 days ago)

I've wondered for years about other ways of looking at/experiencing time.  Other than linear time.  Does anyone know much about this?  What other ways of knowing time are out there?  Are there a lot of theories in this area?  Has it been explored to a great extent?  Is there a lot of science in this area?
Any good websites on the subject that people are familiar with?

Time is merely a measuring system used to quantify the motion of objects.

Yes.  The obvious one is relativity where time is most certainly non-linear.  That is, it doesn't progress at the same rate for everyone.  This model treats times as a dimension of sorts that we move along (at different rates). 

There is also a thermodynamic view of time where time is a progression from likely states to unlikely states.  For example its unlikely to have a building standing intact, and more likely to have it collapsed as rubble.  So as time progresses, things turn to rubble (of sorts).

Its pretty complicated stuff to be honest.

(Im glad I got this in before the P&S party line of "time is a fictitious illusion" comes around :smirk:)

Time is a fictitious illusion.

Whew... just in time.  Well, let the insanity commence.

Thanks for this.  This much I already get, though, to an extent.  I'd like to explore these ideas further.  Like, can we control the passing of time, if it's relative?  Can we access more time in one moment than we usually do?

Basically there are two ways to manipulate the rate of the passing of time.  If you travel at a fast speed then time progresses for you much slower then somebody at rest.  However, we dont have the technology to move fast enough for this to effect us - if we did we could travel all around the galaxy within a lifetime.  Some things this does effect include the study of small particles, and the GPS system which does move fast enough to have relativistic effects.  (Now its presumed that walking around at slow speeds still dilates our time very slightly, but this is too slight to be experimentally verified) The other way to manipulate time is in a gravitational field.  The strong the field, the slower time will pass for you. 

So, scientifically speaking, we are hurling through time at a set speed which we can slow down by traveling at a relative speed or chilling in a gravitational field.
