The Ultimate Truth About Time

The Ultimate Truth About Time 

The ultimate truth about time is explained using our current idea that time is real and a new idea that time is a concept which isn’t as real as we have experienced or learned. I want you to consider that time is a human idea used to measure and record events but keeping time doesn’t explain time or say what causes time to happen.

Motion of Energy 

Nikola Tesla said “ To understand the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibrations.”

We usually think of motion when an object is moving at a certain speed. 

We use a clock or other instrument to measure the speed of the object’s motion and then say it has momentum or kinetic energy. 

Does the universe have some kind of energy that gives motion to things? 

What is the energy of motion? What causes the motion of planets and of light to move in space? 

The measure of time is a human invention based on the motion of the Earth so in that regard time is only valid using the clock system on Earth. 

But time is only a measurement of motion using the number system invented here on Earth. 

We have a difficult time (pun intended) to realize the two aspects of time. 

One side of the coin is the measure of a clock’s ticking and the other side is the motion that is being measured. What is more real, the ticking clock or the motion rotating the Earth?

My short answer is that a clock can show a false time or stop but consider that the universe keeps moving just like the Earth takes a licking and keeps on ticking. 

 If a force of some kind slows down a ticking clock does it also slow down motion? 

 Does the speed of light slow down or does a clock slowdown? It seems like time is a human concept used for measuring time but time works because of motion. 

Measurement of Motion

Time is so misunderstood that people think time can stop, move faster, be a dimension and people even think that time travel is possible. 

But time as you know it is only a measurement of motion. Time by itself has no power or force to do anything because it’s just a number.

Measuring time tells us nothing about what time is, just like measuring gravity tells us nothing about what gravity is. 

The real force in the universe is gravity and it controls the speed of time. 

Gravity causes motion and our clocks try to measure that motion but the force of gravity creates a false reading on clocks. 

For example, the GPS satellite’s motion or speed causes acceleration time dilation to go slower about 7 milliseconds per day. 

But the motion of the satellite stays the same only the clocks ticking changes. 

And, the lack of gravity in space allows the clocks to tick 45 milliseconds faster per day compared to another clock on Earth. 

The total amount of time dilation is about 38 milliseconds faster per day. But the satellite itself isn’t going 38 milliseconds faster each day.

Only the ticking of the clock changes, and this time dilation isn’t reality. 

The motion of movement is not changing and the age of a satellite isn’t changing. 

When you examine time dilation closely you see that time has no power or energy to do anything. What this really means is that Spacetime is a falsehood.

If the speed of light is invariant and time is in the speed of light how can time change? 

Only a clock's ticking changes not the motion of light or of the satellite. 

Is Time a Fundamental Force 

We have been taught that the 4 fundamental forces are the electromagnetic, the weak nuclear, the strong nuclear and gravity. If time is real could it be a 5th fundamental force?

However, time is only a measurement of motion so it can’t be a force or energy.

We use time to measure events and the motion of energy. 

The main force of motion in the universe is gravity. It moves matter into stars and stars into black holes, it moves our planet around the sun and keeps us connected to the earth. 

We also use time to measure how fast we run, eat, walk, sleep and work. This is the biological aspect of time but it’s not what causes biological time and aging.

A simple amount of time doesn’t cause aging. There is some other process at work. 

Other forms of energy are chemical, mechanical, atomic, solar and wind energy to mention a few.

The motion of energy in all forms of energy comes from the reactions of matter. In chemical reactions the frequency of vibrations in molecules causes motion. 

Sometimes the electromagnetic force causes motion and with mechanical motion the cause can be from a machine powered by electricity or fuel and even wind or water energy.

We use time to measure these forces but time isn’t the force. The motion of energy is caused by some kind of energy that we just mentioned.

Time Dilation Events

When some kinds of energy such as gravity affect a clock’s time keeping the change in time is called time dilation. 

This means that if a clock is taking part during the motion that is happening then the clock will experience a force (usually gravity) and cause a false time on the clock.

This amount of time is called time dilation, Einstein and Minkowski invented spacetime from this difference in time. 

I have proved the falsehood of time dilation and spacetime in this article using the photon clock. 

The 3 Dimensions of Time 

Here is the latest news about time and just in the nick of time. 

The moment you have all been waiting for is here!

Physical stuff has 3- spatial dimensions that describe the shape and size of matter.

Time also has 3 dimensions to describe an event or motion. The 3 dimensions are the past, present and future. 

The past is becoming now, the present is happening now, and the future is beginning now. That means all 3 dimensions of time are happening now. 

We have a moment of motion (time) in the universe to work, eat, sleep and be happy. Every moment outside of this now time isn’t available. 

I have already talked about time travel and why it’s not possible. 

I hope you enjoyed this moment with me reflecting about time and energy.

Take the time to share this with friends and family members as we are entering a new way of living after the current pandemic is over.
