I think it is also as children we are not as conscious and aware about time as we are as adults.
When you're 5 you're not watching the clock and calendars.
As adults we're painfully aware of them.
I've also seen some theories on time being affected by a creatures size. Essentially time might go or appear to go slower for an ant than it does a
Anyway what is time? Time is not a real thing, any more than a cm or inch is.
It's a form of measurement. It's how we measure movement of objects over distance.
The speed of an object determines how it moves through 'time'.
I think the trick to controlling it is not to try and control 'time' but instead you'd control the things time measures.
You cannot make a string longer by making a centimeter bigger. You have to manipulate the string itself.
Should the military develop a cannon that could fire a round at light speed, wouldn't that be them manipulating time?
Don't even need an object to move at such insane speeds.
A fighter jet travelling above the speed of sound would technically be moving through 'time' at a different rate than I sitting still at my
Although the difference in time would be so small as to be unnoticeable to mine or the fighter pilots eye.
Wonder if there is a way to measure time for an object going at 8,600 km/h (like a rail gun) or faster.
Light speed = 1080000000kmph
At light speed time essentially ceases to exist. Or comes to a stand still.
At what speed though does 'time' start to become noticeably altered by an observer?
It's all interesting stuff. Time.
I believe it is possible to halt it or accelerate it, but I don't think it is possible to rewind it.
I think we humans are only capable of manipulating time on a tiny scale universally speaking, but we are capable of it.
Just a matter of perspective.
