I just had a aha! moment shoot me down if you like. If time slows down as one approaches a singularity, and taking into account Einstein's theory on space time. Is it gravity that causes time? because the time at a place of infinite gravity and mass has a different slower time than someone who is far from this effect. Is this the reason why a photon is time locked, because it hasn't encountered any gravity during its flight, so it hasn't aged?
So someone living on mars, or the moon, where the gravity is a lot less than on earth, would they also find that they would age less?. I know its simplistic, but if gravity causes time this might be the effect.
So do gravity waves cause time?, and if they do, measuring gravity waves, would be as difficult as trying to measure a handful of time.

I think you made one mistake. That being that gravity doesn't effect light and it does. Gravitational lensing is how we measure dark matter and such.....
That said, I love the thought. That's why it looks Iike "time space" is one unit. That's why light does all go the same speed. It just wouldn't be because of a lack of gravitational friction. It would be because (maybe :p) light was actually a manifestation of gravity/time or "gravityme" [(TM) please message me for an address for my royalty checks :p] . Because light isn't just visual light. It's the energy givin off by gravityme's reaction to matter.
Ok I'm done ranting :p.... Gotta love the posts that make ya think!

You make a great point. But one question I ask to everyone, why is it that during a "crisis" or "harmful" event, time seems to slow down, as if allowing your brain or conciousness to absorb all incoming data as imminent value as compared to jsut walking down the street?
Example, when I was 7 or 8 I was on a trampolene with two of my cousins. they were both years older and much heavier than I. They decided to "double bounce" me as I came down and I flew off, and I seemed to be atleast 15 feet off the ground and flying off at an angle which was surely to land me right on the dirt. This moment only lasted a few seconds but I rememeber very clearly looking at their faces in the air, turning towards the ground and shifting my body to land safely as not to harm me. I only had a sprained wrist, but it hurt like hell. But It seemed as if I were in the air for 30 seconds and was able to react so fast to what was happening when I least suspected it. What causes time within the brain to slow down and remember so clearly these types of events?
There are so many examples that nearly every person can recall that time slows down during certain key moments in their lives, remembering such fine details and being able to do the improbable when as great meaning or moknumental experience lies beneath? It's almost time and space defying.
I admit some of my physics textbooks aren't brand new, but I didn't know they were this far out-of-date. They don't say anything about "magnetic force has long been thought to be the cause of *Gravity*", should I trade them in for some new ones?

There`s no such thing as gravity.
There is only magnetic force. Magnetic force has long been thought to be the cause of *Gravity*. It is after all the thing that holds all mass together in geometic designs. Which forms order.
