Timelessness is a meaningless concept

    Existence is a time issue. Non existence is a time issue! For a thing not to exist, there must be a period during which it does not exist. Therefore timelessness is a meaningless concept!

    Defend yourself!

      and why do we have to defend ourselves??

      if timelessness is so meaningless to you why waste your time to write about it?

      Both existence and non existence abides without time.
      Existence is the cause of time not vice versa.

      what is non existence ....?
      It is that which is governed by Existence within time.

      What pops into mind when I read this is

        Time seems to be meaningless until something begins coming into existance  OR    something begins to deteriate.


         Time exist between birth and death of a thing.
         Other than then ...  time does not exist for that thing????

         Poor answer .. cause... It is early and I haven't had my coffee yet.

      Timeless means the quality of being eternal, ageless, immortal, or not affected by time. Anachronisms can be regarded as timeless or out of time.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeless

      In the meaning of eternal or immortal timelessness is a reality with the Creator-God; He is Immortal.

      Time is a creation of the Creator-God as is space.

      Time is ONLY the Measurement of a thing.
      You can Time the distance between two or more points and each Instance between.

      However, you do not NEED Time to have a thing exist or not exist,
      so long as you do not measure the thing.
      Timelessness is simply NOT MEASURING.

      You can have a Space the "size (measurement/time)" of a nanometer, and it will exist or not, void of the measurement.

      For instance, a muon intercept gluon -unite, void gluon -show hedron - expel boson, is a general example of the existence || non-existence of a sub atomic particle event. The event is, with or without necessity of "how long" or "if it is" or "is not" visible || tangible.

      It is timeless. All energy is timeless. The difference is the instance tangible v intangible and the limitation of that tangibility. Even still tang or intang does not need measuring itself.

          My pleasure, sunshine smile

          As said : space is the tangible "thing".
          time is the imposed observation, the "measure of || measuring of" the thing. I explained this to someone before:

          0 (zero as the thing) exists and does not exist, with or without measure. To measure is to impose time (as the measuring of the perimeter the center, etc etc).

      Bibowenposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      If a thing does not exist, time does not bind "it" since there is no "it" for it to apply to. At the point a thing comes into existence, then it endures through time. But who says that that period in which an object doesn't exist, its existence is timeless?!

      Besides, "timelessness" is normally applied to spiritual entities such as God or the soul. Some also believe that theoretical concepts, say, the number "2" is timeless.

      So, I'm not sure of your point. Also, consider that it might be that "timelessness" is not "meaningless"; rather, it is meaningful, but there would be no true propositions in which you could say that a thing or state is timeless. Therefore, such propositions would be meaningful, but they'd be false.

      lone77starposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I agree with Sembj, to a degree. Why is non-existence a time issue? And why can't existence be a non-time issue? Persistence pertains to time. Existence can pertain to time or to timelessness.

      A creation does not start with the time dimension (persistence). It is thus "timeless." Viewed from within the time stream, such an instantaneity would not last more than an instant. It would be timeless.

      God (whatever that is) would seem to be timeless -- no beginning, no end, superior to the time stream, but capable ot creating time streams and injecting creations with or without persistence into those streams.

      And when the founder of Christianity said that knowing the truth would set one free, this applies to any creation. As baby creators, if we were to see the truth of a creation, it would then lose its persistence and return to an instantaneity (and disappear in the next instant).

      If one has a problem and thinks that they have found the truth of it, and if the problem persists, then one needs to look further. Finding the truth of any problem will make the problem disappear (instantly). So many people do not know how to look, so they give up too easily.

      Timelessness is only meaningless to those who have no experience with such things.

    No! Before anything comes into existence, we have a period during which nothing exists otherwise there will no time during which nothing exists i.e. the non existence will not be a reality. Of course you as an individual can experiece no 'time passage' but your lack of experience of 'time passed' must occur for a period for it to be a reality at all. Otherwise there will be no time for you to lack that experience!

      Sounded to me like we said almost (almost) the same thing.

        For the thing (posibly me or you?) only experiences time during its coming into being, and its regression or degeneration until it no longer exists. 

         It seems to me that time as we know it only exists within the concept of  coming into, during and exiting this physical realm in which we find ourseves.

         Ssoooo  ....   Does time exists in and of itself? 
         OR  is time nothing more than "A Things" concept of it?

         Would that make "TIME" nothing more than a concept that doesn't actually exist in the physical realm?


           Not argueing;  just attempting to wrape my head around this concept.

    you know, time is not such a thing  we can say to come into being or to go out of being. Why? For a very simple reason that if we say entity E has come into being, then we conceive as at one TIME E did not exist but it exists at another time. Now, what if E is time itself, it will mean at one time time did not exist. So there was ONE TIME when there was no time, a logical absurdity.

    Of caurse the EXPERIENCE of time can be said to come into being and to go out of being just as the experience of sun can. But differentiat time from the experience of it.

    If you define timelessness as quality of being eternal and ageless then of course it has a meaning.

    When you say 'not affected by time,' you miss it because time donnot actually affect anything it is just a concept it is not time which makes you grow old we just use time to make sense of 'growing old'. What you should say is 'being changeless'

    Both time and space are not things that can be said to be created for simple reason; if entity E is said to have been created, then at certain time it did not exist but it exist at time after certain moment. Now if E is time, then it implies that there were a time when there was no time which is absurd. Space is just nothing. It is nonsensical to say nothing is created.

    Anything that is said to spread in all dimensions is conceived as an object in space and not time.

    Time is strictly about 'when' question and not about 'what' question. Not what a thing is but when the thing is. Do you think understanding is always answering what a thing is?

      ah no...time is a dimension of space like width and depth. it is how you experience space. So timelessness is NOT a meaningless concept in as much as weightlessness is NOT a meaningless concept.

      0 time is a singularity.

      Besides, in context. Something timeless means it is classic or something that transcends time and change.

      So I tend to disagree.

    Time is not a dimension of space because we conceive space such that all locations exists at the same moment. Yo will mean that saturday and sunday exists at the same moment. Hence we are bringing in another time as SAME MOMENT which is different from being saturday an being sunday.

    Time is not solely the way we experience because we can conceive motion of moon without anybody experiencing it yet without the motion is being at one location at one time and being at another location at another time regardless anybody is experiencing anything or not.

      well, Einstein said this. Its not my opinion but a discovery of the nature of reality, as we humans experience it. Hence time dilation and expansion plays a huge role in his theory of relativity particularly at great speeds.

      I'm coming from a physics point of view not a philosophical one. even the word "timeless" as I mentioned has a different use.

      "The Fourth Dimension

      Minkowski


      Lightcone diagram showing the worldline
      of a moving observer

      Einstein did not quite finish the job, however. Contrary to popular belief, he did not draw the conclusion that space and time could be seen as components of a single four-dimensional spacetime fabric. That insight came from Hermann Minkowski (1864-1909), who announced it in a 1908 colloquium with the dramatic words: "Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality".

      Four-dimensional Minkowski spacetime is often pictured in the form of a two-dimensional lightcone diagram, with the horizontal axes representing "space" (x) and the vertical axis "time" (ct). The walls of the cone are defined by the evolution of a flash of light passing from the past (lower cone) to the future (upper cone) through the present (origin). All of physical reality is contained within this cone; the region outside ("elsewhere") is inaccessible because one would have to travel faster than light to reach it. The trajectories of all real objects lie along "worldlines" inside the cone (like the one shown here in red). The apparently static nature of this picture, in which history does not seem to "happen" but is rather "already there", has given writers and philosophers a new way to think about old issues involving determinism and free will.

      Einstein initially dismissed Minkowski's four-dimensional interpretation of his theory as "superfluous learnedness" (Abraham Pais, Subtle is the Lord..., 1982). To his credit, however, he changed his mind quickly. The language of spacetime (known technically as tensor mathematics) proved to be essential in deriving his theory of general relativity."

    You say when there was no space there was no time. The term WHEN already refers to time. if there was no time, there could never be WHEN there was no space. You mistake time with events. Space is nothing it is nonsensical to say it is not there. It is a concept.

      Only if used as a double-measure. Space is measuring tool, measuring the distance of itself or space as the Thing, in conjunction with the measuring tool of Time/Speed/Frequency. A graph is merely a plain on which humans choose to measure other measurements.

      This is not rational, actually. A 'predict' cannot be used as a graphic to 'measure' (locate certain moments). A true predict is a 'stab in the dark' or a 'valid location', without imposed effect. Making the predict applicable, by use of the graph 'shape', also does not apply --as the graph is yet a third measure used with other measures to make a claim. To predict this way is to impose a condition --that condition is a measure, unless the object being is available at every and all given existence, in order to be observed accurately.

    before you say we donnot need time for a thing to exist or not, better first try to illustrate the meaning of a thing existing or not existing. I will specify domain first;
    the statement; the chair does not exist is not complete before you specify domains. We say the chair donot exist in this room at this time because it can exist elsewhere at another moment. It is not that things need time to exist rather, the concepts of existence and non existence are meaningless without the concept of time.

    Whem we measure, we merely compare velocities. Donnot confuse the measure of time with the meaning of time.

      Any given 'instance' of object is or is not, is not based on time(distance, speed, frequency of tangibility, place nor shape).

      You are imposing 'time' as the framework of the thing (a chair), which we know is not true. Time and other measures cannot make or be the object. They may 'hold the object' in optic view, yes. Still, they are imposed limitations, by the observer, not the object itself. Especially based on the example provided: the simple interaction of three sub-atomic units. And do not use the 'dimension card', as there is no valid  [mathematical] evidence to support the theory.

      If Space is the object, and within space other objects exist/not-exist, we can observe them all. When we attempt to determine 'how long, far, deep, wide, much -- we immediately impose measures within the object, not without.

      The object is void of time (and its parts) else time would be the object itself and what we observe: the measure of that instance.
      But we know better. Even a single human thought (of a chair) proves this.

      I was merely using the 'chair' you mentioned as a point of reference.
      Now, a very simple illustration of A Thing not existing is to say it is 'intangible/non-optic'. Of the three [known] properties of light, one is considered a medium between the others, even though we can observe it. That property is defined as:

      neutron || neutral || absorptive.

      Space ( the Universe ) --the Thing-- is light; made primarily of neutral energy. It is highly absorptive! A property between the tangible and intangible (optic | non-optic; exist | not-exist). The objects within are generally made up of the remaining two properties defined as:

      proton || positive || projective
      electron || negative || reflective

      All three operate as a whole. All of the three exist, do not exist and are between existence, based on their form (property). These forms are interchangable (see my example of the muon-gluon-hedron, again). They are in fact timeless, since they are not subject to any or all conditions of measurement.

      Space can be measured, or the space (distance) between two objects, adding a third measure of time or shape. A "moment in time" (a photo, a graph, etc) is an applied set of measurements in the optic view.

If I was teaching you English we just do that; we enter two rooms, one with a chair and one without a chair then say the chair exists here and the chair does not exist here and the person will understand what you mean by existing and not existing.

      Time is A MEASUREMENT of a Thing or another measurement. Why it so difficult for you to understand?

      You said: "timelessness is a meaningless concept".
      But you do not understand the logic you are attempting to present, discuss or debate. Anything void of measurement is highly meaningful!

      A moment or instance --which is a measure of time-- is mute. The Object is greater than measure, greater than instance. Everything in the universe IS all three properties - tangible, between tangibles and intangible. This is the primary fundamental of all existence --all existence is light, in three varying expressions.

      Clear enough for you?

      You CANNOT achieve Nirvana, Kalacakra, Jinn, Transcendence, Resurrection Image, etc using time or other such 'meaningless' measurements.

      . If you are a woman, you ask, "how many minutes to the airport". Time is the experience of space. It does not take a lot of nuerons to compute that. Will you measure time or depth or width to determine the amount of space.

      Timelessness cannot be defined by the observer.
      So, I reiterate: time is a measure based on application by the observer.
      Timelessness would be void of the observer, meaning the observer is beyond view, viewing or measuring. The observer is the sum-substance, the object.

      Here is a simple illustration: It is not necessary to consider a question nor a solution, both a relational || relative parallels within the necessity syndication.

      (necessity is without a doubt a measure of time (cause-effect), motion of the observer --observing the clock, the chair here or not, by consideration of it).

      Timelessness is completely meaningful without intervention or application.
      If you can understand this, then you have your solution.

      Wha? I'm sorry I don't know what you're talking about. I was talking to James.

      You don't like poetry? How about this:

      "the world of physical phenomena which was briefly called “world” by Minkowski is naturally four-dimensional in the space-time sense. For it is composed of individual events, each of which is described by four numbers, namely, three space co-ordinates x, y, z and a time co-ordinate, the time-value t. The “world” is in this sense also a continuum; for to every event there are as many “neighbouring” events (realised or at least thinkable) as we care to choose, the co-ordinates x1, y1, z1, t1 of which differ by an indefinitely small amount from those of the event x, y, z, t originally considered. That we have not been accustomed to regard the world in this sense as a four-dimensional continuum is due to the fact that in physics, before the advent of the theory of relativity, time played a different and more independent rôle, as compared with the space co-ordinates. It is for this reason that we have been in the habit of treating time as an independent continuum. As a matter of fact, according to classical mechanics, time is absolute, i.e. it is independent of the position and the condition of motion of the system of co-ordinates. We see this expressed in the last equation of the Galileian transformation (t' = t).       3
        The four-dimensional mode of consideration of the “world” is natural on the theory of relativity, since according to this theory time is robbed of its independence. This is shown by the fourth equation of the Lorentz transformation:."

    Space; a collection of locations that conceptually exists at the same moment.

    So it is jurt a piece of cake, if time is a dimension of space,(even if in fourth dimension) then monday, theusday, wednersday ,thursday, friday, saturday and sunday exists at the same MOMENT as mere locations along an axis. Then PAY GREAT ATTENTION TO THE TERM 'AT THE SAME MOMENT.'
      It means 'at the same time hence another time is introduced in the scene different from monday and theusday.

    before we talk of Minkowiski(this guy must have drunk a lot of wiski) space-time, you must first tell us if you are talking about an object that exists in reality or just an abstract mathematical concept. It is mind boggling for people to confuse graphs with reality!

    It is imposible to leave literally in a light corne because of reason I will show you. Minkowiski was trying to explain why the velocity of light is apparently constant for all observers.(the real explanation has something to do with signal delays). So you see, so he says that you are surrounded by concentric spheres where one sphere is monday, the nexts sphere is theusday, the third is wednersday and so forth. So if you are 'on' sunday. The sphere of monday contracts and varnishes on you and you become now 'on' monday. Then the sphere of theusday, wednersday etc. The speed of contractions is the speed of light. So if you were to move, you will be chasing an imaginary expanding sphere of monday and the sphere is also light wavefront. But don't you see the obvious problems with this model?
    1)the imaginary spheres are not conceptually monday and theusday but just moving objects relebled monday and theusday
    2)each and every region can act as a centre out of which the spheres emerge hence each point is also a portion of the surface of an arbirtrary sphere hence the scenario cannot happen litterally.

    It makes sence as an abstract mathematical concept.

    essentially, taking Minkowiski literally is saing that monday theusday wednersday etc all exists at the same moment as parralel universes allong a fourth dimension. No wonder you think of time travel. However, they are just that, parallel universes renamed monday theusday etc. Please cecil, try to understand me. Minkowiski is correct if you define time as what is shown on a clock. What is one o-clock? It is this this thing written here as 1 on a clock. All 1 ,2 ,3 exists at the same time on the scale but the hour arm is at one region at a time.

    Now 'the our univers' is to hour arm on a clock as 'time' is to scale of the clock on the clock on the Minkowiski diagram taken litteraly. The 4d block multivers with 'our univers' romming around is nothing but 'the clock of God.' unfortunately such a conception of moving along time introduces another meta time yet the model is supposed to contain time already. The rescue is to take Minkowiski space-time as just a graph!

'the moon' and 'the fact that the moon is here', 'the colliding balls' and 'the collition of the balls'

    There is no single beast described with all x,y,z,t as a purely its LOCATION as it will turn out to be a mixture of concept and object. particularly the concept of location. we don't describe a thing with x,y,z,t as we may describe a thing with x,y,z only. in the letter we are interested with the location of an object at an instance a conceptually static scenario.

Since you are a human being, your brain breaks these things up like they are separate. You are in one cosmic reality yet your senses are breaking up sensations into different things.

      If you want to go back in time before you scratched your eye, you have to go back into space from where you came from when you were scratching your eye. Your experience of time is relative to the expanding universe moving from its point of origin when it did its last big bang. If the universe is not expanding. You would be a tiny sperm and an adult at the same time scratching your eye and your head concurrently. I'm sorry you can't wrap your head around it, but as you know Einstein does have an abnormally large brain with more red dots the average man. But maybe you have an even larger head and more red dots on yours, who knows. I however have nothing to do with your unease over established concepts in physics. To start with, why don't you familiar yourself with a few things.

    consider these statements;

    2)the billiard balls collided at 6 o-clock.
    Have you ever wonderd what is it that is on top of the table and what is it that is at 6 o-clock?
    A reasoning may go like this;
    the billiard balls collided at x
    x is on top of the table
    x is at six o-clock
    therefor at six o-clock is on top of the table.
    Therefore space is time
    This is the reasoning of x,y,z.t
    hence t is on the same par with x,y,z

    In the sentence, the billiard balls collided on top of the table, what we are talking about is the billiard balls (the object). In the sentense, the billiard balls collided at 6 o-clock, what we are talking about is the collition of the billiard balls (a concept). It is the objects that ARE on top of the table (space) and the concept that TAKE PLACE at 6 o-clock.(time)

    So space has two uses, where things ARE and where things HAPPEN. In a way difficult to notice, time donnot have these two uses. It is just when things happen. Things cannot BE at six o-clock even if they came into being and dispeard. They WERE in SPACE at six o-clock. So time axis is not the same in nature with a space axis. Space axis enjoy a unique nature in that things can BE in them. The HAPPENING aspect only is the one which makes space related with time.

    When we describe a single entity with x,y,z,t as though t is just the same in nature as x, it is this concept of BEING and HAPPENING that we tamper with and I am not pleased.

    Here is GR
    Surounding the earth are consentric spheres of monday, theusday, wednersday etc.the spheres are contracting and vanishing in the centre of the earth. So as you stand on the surface of the earth, time is litteraly passing by you on it's way to the center of the earth! And yes, it press you on the earth in the process and this is gravity!

    So, monday is an object. It has a shape.this sabstance is also the ether in which light propergates in so even if the velocity of light is thus affected by gravity, its velocity relative to monday is not!. Inside a black hole, monday contracts faster than light so light cannot escape even thoug it is still moving at the same velocity relative to monday! So with such notions, timelessness is very meaning of course, just the PERIOD of TIME WHEN these objects called monday and theusdays donnot exist. ceciliar, you win!

      "Time has completely nothing to do with physics."

      Officially the stupidest comment I have ever read on these forums. Physics is the study of the universe and its workings. How could the ideas of time possibly be explained without physics? Or is the concept of time somehow separate from the workings of the universe?

      Further, your arguments concerning the days of the week as "concentric spheres" is about the most absurd concept I ever heard of. And you used this to explain how gravity works? No one KNOWS the origins of gravity as of yet, even those who study general relativity. You had better publish these ideas in a peer-evaluated journal before someone on here steals your innovative ideas!

      I don't think any person on this forum is yet equipped to give an argument of time and space based on the concepts of GR, including myself. It requires graduate work in theoretical physics to understand even the basis behind the theory.

      And the reason no one is giving definitions for time or space is because they are extremely abstract and complex concepts. Providing your own definitions that have no scientific basis does not make your ideas on the subject more valid or grounded.

I really don't feel as if I'm in good company anymore because it is very rare that I would find anyone who would have some basic understanding of the very subjects they participate in.

        Now if there was a post about politics...I wouldn't even DARE participate. I know nothing of politics, american politics. You never see me there.

        Increase the quality of the forums by at least knowing a little about the topics you choose to participate in, even if its about claims you disagree with.

            My dear, you have the credibility of approaching zero (since absolute zero cannot be achieved). First and foremost, I never open my mouth without checking my data because my face and name is there.

            You on the other hand can say things like "how is the fourth dimension connected to relativity?" and  "Einstein never said this" when, it is the basis of general relativity and be absolutely free of the consequences. Copying 1/299,792,458 of a second only shows how well you copy not your understanding of the concepts being presented.

            Your problem is that you tend to zero in on details when the larger picture is what is being discussed. I think get out of religion and philosophy and get into education forums and discuss them about light speeds. But macroscopic ideas elude you.

                Oh really? Robert Kaplan, Eric Chaisson, Michiu Kaku, João Magueijo and Stephen Hawking are crackpots.

                (and let's not even mention Campbell, Jung, Dawkins and Friedman in this discussion, lets stick to the physics guys)

                I remember you did say John R. Van Eenwyk was a priest when we were having a discussion about archetypes and strange attractors. So you concluded that he was a crackpot even if he is holds a position in the Medical school of the University of Washington, and his topic is Jungian Psychology...something you know nothing about...absolutely nothing about. You dare call someone holding a position in a university as a crackpot.

                Or Robert Kaplan and his assertions on ZERO. a professor of Harvard University, his work which was published by the Oxford University Press.

                Or Eric Chaisson, in his explanation of the arrow of time, whose work was published both by Harvard and Columbia University Presses. this is his wikipedia page, his main work is to educate people about science. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Chaisson

                Michiu Kaku, the co-founder of the string field theory and He was a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton

                João Magueijo, a Portuguese cosmologist and professor in Theoretical Physics at Imperial College London. He is a pioneer of the varying speed of light (VSL) theory.


                Do I need to tell you that Stephen Hawking is NOT a crackpot. These are the authors I ever quoted aside from science writer Robert Matthews:
                "Robert Matthews has a gift for finding the simple, fascinating stories at the heart of concepts transforming the modern world" - John Rennie, Editor,  Scientific American.

                And need I say Joseph Campbell has a FOUNDATION built in his honor and there is NOW a field called Jungian Psychology which JUNG, the person I always cite in religion forums... that's not even mentioning "Relativity" By Albert Einstein which contains "Minkowski's Four Dimensional Space" in Appendix 2.


                Having a very short reading list in books relating to physics past Euclidean Geometry does not make you credible judging who is a crackpot author or not.

                    the problem is unless its literal and a one-to-one correlation you don't get it. you cannot fill the spaces in between on your own.

                    like for instance:

                    "Oh you shouldn't have"
                    "No...ofcourse I should."

                    People normally get it already. But with you, it has to be spelled out:

                    People have to tell you "Oh you shouldn't have bothered to give me a gift because I don't want to bother you, but I appreciate it."

                    "NO, ofcourse I should have, it's your birthday and it should be celebrated."

                    read up. maybe you'll get a clue.

          Space is our conceptualization of ‘nothing’. “Nothing” cannot have length, width or height!  Dimension is the property of an object!

    Arrow of time? We cannot say time is moving from location yesterday to location today all the way to location tommorrow. This will be a moving train along the static rails with telephone poles of yesterday, today and tommorrow along the way! So time is a moving object and yesterday, today, and tommorrow are stationary objects! But we need time to conceptualise motion, even if it is the motion of time so we have two times!

    I have no problem if you hypothesise that there are x,y,z,t, m,n,k,r,q,g if you mean that they are all static locations. In this nature, they will be similar to x,y,z and it is this that makes us call x,y,z dimensions. Otherwise you will be using the word dimension inconsistently making us compare warthogs with pigs.

    x,y,z are conceptually static location. x,y,z,t are conceptually dynamic locations hence t is not on the same par with x,y,z OR x,y,z,t is conceptually static hence t is on the same par with x,y,z but tau is the real change in time and t is just an imaginary clock scale along a fourth dimension.

      Well, its not my fault that you presented your arguments like you didn't understand the fourth dimension or why there is such a thing as the arrow of time.


      This is not doctrine. This is theory. Theory that has mathematical basis. Theory that is being taken seriously.

      If you are going to dispute it, say I don't agree with einstein. Don't disagree with me. If people do not have anything to support opinion then it is just chatting away the day. First, establish what is known and then proceed to interpret it, disagree with it.

      But saying there is no such thing, when there is really really just shows you either ignore information or don't know it.

      Timelessness is NOT a meaningless concept. But this argument is really becoming meaningless.

        Einstein is dead. 90% of his theories are somewhat useful, but very passe.

        Let them answer this:

        Explain time using a single example:

        the collision of two identical gluon (massless units) producing a Higgs W Boson. Remembering: 95% of the 'mass' and 'energy' of the Universe is dark (unobservable).

          Yes, in France there was a cover in Science&Vie that said : Einstien is passe.

          But just like Newton is passe, his work still has applications and should not be completely disregarded. Einstien's work is foundational to VSL or Penrose's mutliple big bang in a way that it changed our paradigm about how to view spacetime.

          It is just important that OTHER people do not fall for the distractions of Beelzedad from exploring the ideas that I am discussing because these are very current developments in physics and those who will believe him will remain in the dark ages where he is. They will never grow out of that soil.

          Moffat provides an alternative to dark energy. Penrose is challenging EVERYTHING, he says Einstein and Quantum Physics (as well as String) are half-baked ideas. Still all of them hold in experiments (unlike string).

          So once again, the idea the 5 blind men and the elephant plays out. We are only seeing parts not the whole.

          It is however NOT an excuse to claim that someone doesn't understand say relativity when clearly that person has not even read the work of the person who made that theory.

          But I get your point, know when its pointless.

            I am wondering if [he] truly understands the Einstein Theory of Equivalents --which is commonly called Relativity. The theory itself comes from the work by the likes of an English 'nobody' Faraday, who clearly defined electromagnetic rotation. Another was the French Lavosier, who trimmed the idea of 'tiny shifts' using a theory of the mass of rust on metallic objects and of course Newtonian Principle.

            Einstein simply considered the 'relevance' of conditions such as cause-effect --meaning without equal push and pull, nothing could hold together. In that theory he stated 'time and space are not absolute BECAUSE motion and distance are measured by the observer. That gravity WITH motion CAN effect time and space, making gravity partly independent of the measures of time and space. Which in itself is "whack" (for lack of a better word). Less than 5 years later, Alex (Sasha) Friedmann used the Equivalents Theory ( Relative Principle ) to hypothesize the Bang Bang Theory.  If correct, that was the mid 1920's. In less than 100 years, physics has grown and proven even a single expression (image) in the human mind --an object without this supposed Field Theory is able to exist void of mass, measure, weight or cause-effect/push pull.

            [We] have since learned space is not just a vacuum of nothing and that time is simply a 'yardstick theory' that cannot be proven apart from human application of the 'stick' itself. Space (the whole sum-substance) is actually defiant to the Equivalents Theory. Quantum (even quantum mechanics) has shown that sub frequencies (particles) have no mass or weight, no gravity or relativity, yet are the fundamental building blocks that are the universe.

              that's all we ate.

              As for Einstein, it is one thing to know why he has now joined the ranks of Newton as the authors of foundations of understanding physics and another all together to say he's wrong. He's not completely right, but then at this point, no one is.

              Einstein, just like Newton cannot be discarded just yet. Perhaps Penrose will find the beautiful solution or "THE ANSWER" before he dies, but even he does not think we are close.

              He has now moved on to the brain and claims that the theory of mind is more crucial to understanding cosmology. He is connecting consciousness to Mandelbrot's work, which made me interested in him to begin with. consciousness and mandelbrot...does anybody hear bereishit somewhere there? what do you think James... are you going to take on reading the Emperor's New Mind?

                    As for Einstein and Newton, neither has been dismissed, nor is either 100% correct/incorrect. Their ideas although novel and maybe noble, were derived from some of those mentioned and a host of others; And has since been reconstructed by various new physic applications, with or without mechanics. (Very interesting you mention Sir Penrose. His father was a brilliant mathematician). His Interpretation -to me- is a bit naive, but again, he is on to something, same as Newton, same as Aristotle and the rest. In another 100 years, the entire physic regime is going to change again, when we supersede measures as we know them. Should be fun.

                    The issue, again comes back to the objects and the difference between the observable and observer. As said, 95% of the [known] universe is unobservable; the remaining 5% is a mere revealing of projective-reflective. My work regarding this has found much to debunk gravity theories, warps, collapses, etc --producing semiotics, 'voice/sound' variations and 'spectral genetic' patterns that match human DNA structures quite closely. As believed, ultra subatomic frequencies generally have no mass, measure, nor collision --yet are constantly interchanging properties --expressing all three properties while maintaining the universe as we know it. It is like some kind of dance that is simply amazing to know even exists; to be able to observe, nothing short of a wonder --and to become the object --an attainable timelessness.

    you argue properly, GR does not EXPLAIN gravity, it merely describes it in abstract mathematicat terms. That time is not defined is not because it is a complex term, it is because it is a primitive. Then i don't define to make my arguments correct but merely to present my arguments rationally or to be understood.

    Read my posts carefully to understand my statement about physics and time before critisizing me. Time in what sence of it? Without proper definition, a term cannot belong to science. Are you aware that in physics, we just compare velocities with each other

      First, I don't believe even a physics professor could perfectly explain all there is to explain about the concept of time because it is as of yet not perfectly understood. Typically in modern QM or particle physics theories are provided that are *consistent* mathematically but are not yet (or can never be) verified physically.

      Second, if you have ever taken a course in euclidean geometry you know that the concepts of points, lines and planes are famously undefined terms. They are simply too abstract to be given a definition that humans can agree upon. However, mathematics is one of the most precise forms of thought and reason, and this is one of the oldest branches of mathematics, having withstood and developed over about 3000 years.

      The point: it is not always trivial defining fundamental concepts or objects, but that does not mean we cannot learn anything about them.

    let me explain to you why the theory of concentric spheres of week days is GR theory.

    First of all not spheres strictly but any closed mathematical surfaces.

    1) the equation of such a surface is

    g=f(x,y,z) where g is a constant.

    GR hypothesise that the universe is an hypersuface in 4d where time is the forth dimension

    2)the equation of such a such a surface is

    G=f(x,y,z,t)

    Set t=const where const=monday, theusday, wednesday etc then rewrite 2 to make t the subject of the formular and you find

    monday =f(x,y,z)

    which is the same as equation 1

    hence monday describes a closed mathematical 3d surface. I generally called it a sphere.

    But t in nature is not const but alway changing hence the true picture is that of contracting mathematical surfaces.
