# If motion stops will time stop?

I have a brain the size of an ant
So it has me stumped
Where I get these ideas from

I was thinking about time and mostion
When we are active time goes by quickly
If we sit around doing nothing
Time goes slow
Is this really happening or
Just an illusion

But what if I stand very still
Time keeps going
Then I thought hey the earth is in motion
Spinning 1000km an hour
So I need to be in space

But time does not stop for the people in the space station
Because they are in motion with the earth
That's traveling around a star

am I able to find a position in space where I am not in motion with any celestial bodies

Would time stop then and there?

What do you think

It's OK you can call me an idiot
I was hoping for a nobel prize
Or is that wishful thinking lol

PS
I am not a fan of the big bang
But this theory suggests
That time began with a bang
That's when everything started moving

Now I feel better

Time is interwoven with space (spacetime), so regardless of what physical point you occupied in the universe, time would still keep moving forward.

Time and space seem to be directly related to gravity. As to you being somehow able to exist in a position in space where you are not in motion with other celestial bodies that make up our universe? I cant see how without removing yourself from said universe.

And your not an idiot people have been pondering such notions for rather a while.

The Lagrangian point would be your closest bet within our solar system.

Edit: However, everything within creation is in motion. Therefore one could approach 'no motion' the same way an asymptote on a graph approaches the point of zero... infinitely getting closer, but never able to reach it.

It depends, do we exist?

You are still technically in motion with regards to the rest of the celestial bodies that make up our universe.

The Lagrange points only constitute a stable equilibrium, so any object placed there is in a stable orbit with respect to our Earth and Moon.

if you get to zero kelvin all motion stops except for that imparted by quantum effects. used to be that people thought time would also stop. but i don't see how since there is still quantum positional fuzziness going on.

There is no sanctuary from motion. If stillness were possible time would still happen. Time does not go more quickly or more slowly, but your perception of it does...Grasshopper, lol.

At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.
I can only say, there we have been: but I cannot say where.
And I cannot say, how long, for that is to place it in time.
The inner freedom from the practical desire,
The release from action and suffering, release from the inner
And the outer compulsion, yet surrounded
By a grace of sense, a white light still and moving,
Erhebung without motion, concentration
Without elimination, both a new world
And the old made explicit, understood
In the completion of its partial ecstasy,
The resolution of its partial horror.
Yet the enchainment of past and future
Woven in the weakness of the changing body,
Protects mankind from heaven and damnation
Which flesh cannot endure.
Time past and time future
Allow but a little consciousness.
To be conscious is not to be in time
But only in time can the moment in the rose-garden,
The moment in the arbour where the rain beat,
The moment in the draughty church at smokefall
Be remembered; involved with past and future.
Only through time time is conquered.

Excerpt from TS Eliot's wonderful "The Four Quartets".

Even if you removed yourself to a point outside this universe where there was no movement of celestial bodies, particles or quantum particles etc. time would still pass for you.

There would still be movement within your own body, right down to the firing of synapses. Even if you empty your mind of everything some have to fire somewhere in the CNS to sustain life functions.

Time can be slowed, speeded up, our perception manipulated but if you are alive......time still passes.

If all motion stopped; why yes, time would stop.

The clock wouldn't be working if everything was stopped.

I jest!

Time is an illusion. Lunch time doubly so

If I sprinted for a hundred yards and nobody timed my run, does that mean I never ran a hundred yards?

Time is the collaboration of speed and distance and we determine time through those parameters. The fourth dimension is a human construct, and the universe doesn't govern time-it governs motion.

Don't forget to consider negative temperature.

If you freeze something in the freezer, you are taking away energy and the motion of the atoms which effectively slows time. So motion interacts with time. The winters feel long because motion is reduced in some things. Now, this actually does not stop time or slow time from around the event. This could even interact with the space time distortion. When a planet is formed, it is formed by a cooling of particles in the ether that lose their repulsion and get agglutinated together. If higher energy is in place, each particle builds a bubble around it that can repel like particles holding it in suspension.

Now this is just part of my understanding of things, it may not be right but this is how I relate things in my mind as to what is happening. The difference in the energy levels might help create the concept of time.

Actually, it's the other way around. The FASTER you go, the slower time goes. When you go as fast as a particle of light, then time stops. Which is interesting, because it means that light itself does not experience time. Which is also weird because we know that light itself also moves through time. It is a paradox and we have no idea why it works the way it does. All we know is that motion/time/gravity are inextricably intertwined.

Not exactly; traveling at the speed of light, time would progress normally for you. It would only appear to stop to a stationary observer.

It's Relativity...relatively speaking.

Thank you, I had left that part out of my thinking.

Some of the grandest minds ponder this, with the same
amount of gray matter that you sport now.

If space and time are relaive. Time and motion are married.(one)

That's as far as I got.

I think your body clock is regulated by the Kreb's cycle which is internal to your biology, not by your location in Space. Of course, I could be wrong.

posted on Jan, 3 2016 @ 11:12 AM
thing is if we are to believe in the big bang theory then space itself moves (expands constantly) so no I don't think time would stop no matter where you were in the universe.

Time is relevant to only 3rd dimensional thinking. It does not exist in higher dimensions.
