    what do you think time is on the quantum scale?

    Any High School kid could build a real working Time Machine, with the right tools
    and information. This will be the case sooner than later when a kid thinks more
    out side the box then current high school science.

    OTE="Opmmur, post: 160065, member: 13"]I think you need to think more out side the box and less high school science.
    You just may find new answers to old questions.
    [/QUOTE]

    Personally Prof i believe that if high schools are teaching such mixed up theories, then time-travel would never begin as any production engineer such as yourself or Eric Dollard will have seen immediately, i agree with you 100% :)..

    If anyone wants to know what a production engineer is, its a guy who actually builds working things from theories..:cool:

    I can see you have an interest in trying to find out what time is. I do as well. I don't think it is a simple answer. But I have discovered a path to take that has worked very well in acquiring knowledge. When you take a step forward, be willing to take two steps backwards with the knowledge that you think you know. Eventually you get back to something called empirical facts. Empirical facts appear to be the basis of our reality. What I am saying is, we don't get to decide how our reality is. We have to accept what the empirical facts say it is. This approach is not the accepted scientific method. NO MAKE BELIEVE THEORIES are allowed with the empirical method.

    Some of your questions are coming out of fictional beliefs that you have. You can learn what gravity is through empirical observation. No theory necessary.

    Most of the really interesting empirical observations come from some of Nikola Tesla's inventions. Apparently he had access to empirical knowledge that is no longer taught in the schools.

    Well I'm making an empirical observation when time slows near massive objects or on fast airplanes. What causes that?

    Since science is the study of cause and effect how does a fast moving object cause slow down of matter within and around it? This isn't a tiny scale quantum observation it's a macroscopic normal world observation where quantum rules don't apply.

    Large scale normal world stuff abides by newtonian rules, conservation of energy, cant' get out more than you put in and the 3rd, action-reaction.

    Why does matter slow down as a reaction to fast speeds or proximity to massive objects?

    Yes, but it is just another promulgated belief. The phenomena is only observed with atomic clocks. Why has no one recorded any slowing down of time with mechanical or electrical oscillator based clocks?

    cuz it's such a tiny result. Crystal oscillators aren't precise enough, I think the GPS satellite issue with special relativity and their synchronization is proof enough. Satellites go much faster than jet planes.

    Sun obviously bends light around it as well. Clearly observed with powerful telescopes that witness gravitational lensing between galaxies.

    With those 3 empirical observations it's pretty conclusive and doppler shifting of photons as well which is probably linked to special relativity's time dilation effects.

    Another observation is relativistic effects of particles going 99% the speed of light in a particle accelerator. Aka exponential momentum increase(again where does that come from?, why the incredible increase in resistance to acceleration going faster and faster?)

    Point being what causes it? What causes momentum and gravity? What causes time and space to change at the same moment?

    people acknowledge these things pretty far and wide, my issue is why do they happen at all? What is causing it?

    Why don't they just idk, increase in diameter rather than get more inertia, slow time and change color?

    Hope I'm making some sense.

    seems like there's strings attaching matter to spacetime somehow. What is the actual causal relationship? Quite clear the more massive an object is..harder it is to push, why? Something dragging on it?

    Empirical observation clearly shows that the speed of light speed limit is some relationship of matter to space. What is it?

    That relationship of exponential increase of momentum in special relativity is used extensively in nuclear reactors to determine the energies produced. We don't notice it much in daily life cuz the exponential increase is only prominent near the speed of light which exists in thermodynamic nuclear reactions.

    So if people don't believe the time dilation effects of GR and SR...they sure do believe pushing a bus is harder than a toy truck.

    It doesn't. That is, such a thing is only observed by someone in a different reference frame.

    It doesn't "slow down" at all.
