distance is REAL not time

So you just posted that at the same time as you made the previous post?
And at the same time as you're going to make the next one?


Of course Time is real.
We can measure it. It is proven to exist, as we can measure the rate at which it moves! It plays as big a part in the Universe as anything else does!

This is interesting, by the way.

The word time just seems incorrect to this discussion lol

Distance is proven... We can see Distance... Weather it be a meter or a mile. We can physically measure distance!

Time is proven... It takes you so long to go from point A to B that is time! How long it takes is the measurment we created like centemeter and mile.

Just because you cannot see it does not mean it isn't there...

A proved theory is known as a Theorm which has in physics not even been done.

A theorem is a theory that has been put into practice and can be demonstratably confirmed to be true.

And yes, theorems do exist. This doesn't make them 100% fool-proof, though. Nothing is, really.

Indeed.

Also, if Time wasn't real, then Speed couldn't be real, either.
Because Speed = Distance / Time.



It's an absurd idea!

Time exists... It just does not seem to because the only way we have to express it is the values we created to measure it! Distance and all that is the same! But Distance is easier to accept because we can see it!

also I love those little convenient little pyramids....

Speed = Distance / Time
Distance = Speed * Time
Time = Distance / Time

Uhh...

That's about a book which seems to confirm that Time does exist, by making it a physical entity.

So yes, yes it does indeed exist. :cool:

Ever hear of the space time continuum? In a logical sense we aren't able to capture the true essence of time however it does indeed affect us. We perceive things the way our brain wants us to. We of course use time as a variable but we do not fully understand it, but yes it does exist as we do feel it's affects. May it be through radioactive decay or what nots...

He meant in his example like the longer you are exposed to radiation!

Time is there... and yet it is not!

Just like...

We exist... yet we shouldn't!

It's something that we may never know or fully understand!

well, if we eventually create a "time machine" how come there arent any people from the future walking around today?

Most theories dealing with time travel, show that it impossible to travel further back in time than the creation of the Time machine self, whether the time machine in question is traveling worm hole or some from of Space warping gravity source.

Since no one yet to invent one, we can never have time traveller from the future.

Thats if you go with the Time Travel in our own universe theory. In the Multiple universe theory you just cross over to one that didn't start as early ours did. Or it's either the fith or higher dimension were time its self is a meterial object and just by walking forward or backward you are traveling thru time...I always thought that was pretty cool...

well then its not time travel anymore...its traveling between dimensions that have events similar to our own dimenions events that happened in our past.
