Einstein is Time Invariant?
Time is defined as a measurement, as what the clock shows. This is a scalar quantity, like used to define a property of matter, such as mass, length or color. But time isn’t physical so can it change, shrink or stretch or is it invariant?
When did time begin in the Universe? We can only measure what we can see or experience. Therefore, time before the big bang didn’t exist for us, yet, it must have existed with all the other laws of physics before the Universe started.
Time began in the universe when light entered during the big bang. Therefore, time is related to the frequency of light or energy.
A constant in the Universe is the speed of light in a vacuum, so the frequency of light times the wavelength is always equal to the speed of light.
Something in the relationship of energy and time is the meaning of time. Light quanta motion (photons) and time exist together.
The motion of light is based on its frequency which moves due to time which is constant and unchanging. Since the speed of light is invariant than time itself is invariant (unchanging).
A photon particle always travels at light speed, while the wave frequency (time) and wavelength adjust to move at the same speed.
Time works in the frequency of matter. The frequency standard of time is based on the photon radiation that created the universe.
During the big bang energy of high frequency photon radiation turned into matter, namely the electron.
That means that energy created electrons and the measure of time in that energy transferred that standard of time into its creation of electrons.
Electrons were created having a rotating energy field moving at the speed of light.
After the Big bang all light including the cosmic microwave background is created by electrons. Light and all photons have a constant speed of approximately 3 x 10^8 meters per second.
We can deduce that there is a relationship between the speed of light and electrons.
That means that the movement of time within the Big bang photon radiation was transferred into the construction of electrons.
Electrons always produce photon radiation at the perfect speed of light that governs not only the speed of light but the speed of time.
Measuring time only tells us a quantity of time but tells us nothing about time itself. When it comes to measuring quantum fluctuations and very short duration's of time, scientists use an atomic clock.
An atomic clock uses the frequency of atoms to make clocks that are accurate up to one second in a billion years.
Standard time of one second is when the Cesium 133 atom has completed 9,192,631,770 cycles. To be accurate it must be at a certain set of conditions. For instance, temperature and standard gravity.
Time is a non physical aspect that governs the motion of energy. Matter has a property of time that governs its rate of vibration.
This vibration or frequency of matter can change when heat or force is applied to matter.
Light radiation emitted from heated matter will reflect as a different color or frequency but the speed or motion of that light remains constant and invariant.
If any clock is subject to an external force such as extra motion or a change in mass (gravity). According to the theory of relativity, the mass and frequency of its atoms will change.
Dear Einstein, the change in frequency in a clock’s atoms changes the rate of a clock’s time but not time itself.
Quantum vibrations and fluctuations take place in unbelievable small amounts of time. The measurement of such small times are accomplished by atomic clocks.
Atomic clock’s measurement of time is only accurate if the atoms of the clock stay at standard temperature and pressure.
Time is related to the frequency of light by the constant speed of light in the vacuum of space. Any clock will display an inaccurate time if the clock is moving or experiencing a change in gravity.
A Cesium 133 atomic clock is accurate to one second in 300 million years.
Scientists have defined the measure of one second when a Cesium 133 atom has completed 9,192,631,770 cycles.
However Einstein, if a cesium-133 atom in an atomic clock is traveling at a fast speed it will gain mass and vibrate at a slower rate and will appear to show less time.
If the cesium clock is in space and experiencing less gravity the vibrating atom will move faster and the time on its clock will appear to show more time.
Thus, it seems that time is moving faster, but it’s only the measure of the clock that changes and not time itself.
The frequency of atomic clocks is altered slightly by gravity, magnetic fields, electrical fields, motion, force, temperature and other phenomena.
Because all physical clocks are altered by physical conditions they will not show the correct time when compared to a clock in a secure and stable condition.
For this reason atomic clocks in the GPS satellites must be corrected daily to remain accurate to earth based clocks.
Satellites that give us GPS locations use atomic clocks to keep track of time. Physical matter that contain protons and neutrons are affected by the energy field they travel in.
The GPS system has 24 satellites orbiting Earth. Relativity, or time dilation adjustments are performed daily to compensate for the time difference between clocks on Earth.
The difference in speed causes the satellite time to go slower by 7 microseconds daily and due to the smaller gravitaional force in space the satellite time goes faster by 45 microseconds.
Therefore the satellite's time is adjusted to go slower by 38 microseconds daily for each satellite.
Physical matter will gain more mass (more gravity) and slow down the rate of molecular frequency the faster matter moves.
According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, traveling near the speed of light changes matter.
Matter becomes foreshortened in the direction of travel, it will gain a massive amount of mass and time will slow down to a near stop.
Since light has no gravity it’s free to travel at light speed. However, a proton has gravity so it can’t travel at light speed.
This means that any particle that has gravity has a speed limit less than the speed of light.
Einstein time dilation only affects the clock’s time and not time itself.
Even on Earth we experience time dilation because we are moving through space on a revolving planet that has a gravity field.
Matter contains protons and neutrons which have gluons and quarks. The strong nuclear force binds quarks and gluons together to make matter.
Gluons have a force that holds matter together and this attractive force is the source of quantum gravity.
When matter is in a stronger gravity field the quark-gluon force works harder to maintain the strong nuclear force that holds matter together.
This extra energy is equivalent to more mass and it slows down the molecular frequency of matter resulting in clocks running slower.
The reverse is true, if a clock moves in a weaker gravity field the quark/gluon force has less work to do so molecular frequency speeds up and the clock time goes faster.
Time itself and the speed of light remains unchanged.
Universal laws maintain that the speed of light is invariant and therefore, time which governs the speed of light is also invariant and constant.
The frequency and wavelength of photons compensate to always equal the speed of light.
In quantum reactions the compensation is in the quantum gravity or energy translated as mass.
In classic relativity distances it’s still the quantum gravity that changes the mass.
Time itself is never altered.
If time is invariant and gravity comes from the gluon force of quantum reactions the theory of spacetime is built on falsehoods.
However, Einstein didn’t know about quarks/gluons and the strong nuclear force. If he did, he wouldn’t have come up with a theory that gravity distorts space.
I believe he would have said that gravity is a force of attraction between quarks.
Einstein would have said that time dilation and mass in general relativity is the result of the quark/gluon reaction.
He would have said that time is invariant and that clocks are giving a false reading due to quantum gravity.
He might have said that light must have a small mass because it bends in a strong field of gravity.
The simple truth is that time is not a dimension and space cannot be stretched or distorted. The arrow of time moves only one way.
Quantum gravity changes the frequency of atoms in a clock and changes the clock’s time not time itself.
Time is constant and only moves forward. Spacetime and time travel are relegated to science fiction.
Time and gravity are non physical aspects of matter. Perhaps time itself is an energy from some non physical realm that created the Big bang.
In our physical world time entered with the energy of light and it's a part of all matter in its motion and frequency.
I believe that time exists outside of the universe as energy in a kind of universal time.
The speed of light is invariant so therefore, time is invariant. Time is non physical and doesn’t change it only flows forward in the evolution of the universe.
The Big Bang started when light brought in Time.
Shortly after light created electrons and gravity
The speed of light is invariant therefore time is invariant
Gravity and time are non physical aspects of matter
Relativity affects the mass of matter travelling near the speed of light
Time dilation affects the time keeping of clocks
Time itself is constant and unchanging
Behind all the laws and energy of the Big Bang is an underlying consciousness.
Consciousness is fundamental and our physical experience of the world has materialized our mind to accept it as our reality.
We are so attached to this experience of time that we believe in the reality of it. We have even called time a dimension. But time is how all the laws of science work, nothing stands still.
Perhaps the truth is that time only exists for our experience of a physical life. And our true self is waiting for us in a timeless dimension at the Source of Consciousness.
