Re: Re: why time isn't in relation to the speed of light. i need opinions.

Kenji back in the 1940s and 50s the sound barrier was simply difficult to break in an airplane with our technology, we had already had many things that broke the barrier such as bullets and whips. However, the most important thing is that the sound barrier was not a mathematically proven barrier. The light barrier is. That is why it is impossible to move some thing faster than the speed of light. Also the speed of light has everything to do with time, we have flown jets around the world with atomic clocks showing that, because they were moving faster than the clock on the ground time for the plane slowed down (this difference was less then millisecond mind you). Also the universal measurment of time: planck time is in part defined by the speed of light.

If you want math here it is:

plack time = sqrt( (G * h) / c^5) 

  c= speed of light, h = dirac's constant, G = gravitational constant

 Time dilation = t' = t / sqrt( 1 - (v^2 / c^2))

t' = time for outside observer, t = time for you, v = velocity, c = speed of light

as you can see as v gets closer to c, the number for t' get larger meaning that while time for you may be progressing normally everthing you see around you is happening faster.

A dark matter hurricane is crashing into Earth

Giving our solar system a "slap in the face"

Surprising Science
  • A stream of galactic debris is hurtling at us, pulling dark matter along with it
  • It's traveling so quickly it's been described as a hurricane of dark matter

Are we all multiple personalities of universal consciousness?

Bernardo Kastrup proposes a new ontology he calls “idealism” built on panpsychism, the idea that everything in the universe contains consciousness. He solves problems with this philosophy by adding a new suggestion: The universal mind has dissociative identity disorder.

There’s a reason they call it the “hard problem.” Consciousness: Where is it? What is it? No one single perspective seems to be able to answer all the questions we have about consciousness. Now Bernardo Kastrup thinks he’s found one. He calls his ontology idealism, and according to idealism, all of us and all we perceive are manifestations of something very much like a cosmic-scale dissociative identity disorder (DID). He suggests there’s an all-encompassing universe-wide consciousness, it has multiple personalities, and we’re them.

New study reveals what time we burn the most calories

Once again, our circadian rhythm points the way.

Surprising Science
  • Seven individuals were locked inside a windowless, internetless room for 37 days.
  • While at rest, they burned 130 more calories at 5 p.m. than at 5 a.m.
  • Morning time again shown not to be the best time to eat.
