Time dilates as a function of relative velocity of inertial frames of reference, as I understand it. That concept is theory specific though, and not part of my hobby-model. In my model, time simply passes, but the rate that identical clocks measure the passing of time varies relative to the gravitational wave energy of the local environments where the clocks are functioning. Relative acceleration and relative proximity to massive objects governs the gravitational wave energy density of the local environment or frame.

As I understand, time dilates as a function of velocity.
Cheers, and thanks. I may not be addressing exactly what you meant, but your characterization of photons, relative motion, and time stopping are theory specific, Special and General Relativity Theory, if I interpret what you are conveying. I'm talking about an environment where gravity waves are emitted by matter, and so the "medium of space" has a gravitational wave energy gradient at all points that is governed by the proximity and motion of all mass relative to that point.
A photon of light has zero mass and time stops, regardless of the local gravity field. GPS are traveling 17,000 + MPH so the clocks get adjusted on that basis.
It seems by your idea, two identical clocks on opposite sides of the Earth should oscillate with respect to each other based on the orientation with the leading edge of motion through the local space. Am I understanding your idea correctly? Essentially, time dilation is due to a bunching up of space.
not saying the idea agrees with anything observed, I'm trying to understand the idea.
