Sometimes I think that having too much knowledge can be a curse to some people. I think they overlook the obvious !
I believe that light speed, mass and time are related.
This is why :
As per Einstein's special relativity, the closer you go to light speed, the more time dilates in your own frame of reference, and your relativistic
mass increases. Now I believe that Energy can in these circumstances turn into mass, and relativistic mass, can be used to measure the amount of
kinetic energy that an object has, and the more kinetic energy an object has the more time dilates for anything inside the object, for example people
inside a space craft.
Now I also believe the within the Universe, different objects depending on their kinetic energy, have different speeds of time, or time dilates
differently in each of them. They also have different relativistic masses.
This effect I believe is caused because in a closed frame of reference, with lets say people inside, the space craft for example, is effectively
creating a mini Universe for the people, that Universe holding a different amount of energy than the Earth, and because this mini universe ( the space
craft), is traveling at close to light speed and has alot of energy, time inside it dilates.
This also means that if the Earth begins to orbit faster (assuming that the centrifugal force does not throw it off orbit), it would disrupt the
balance of time, and time on Earth will dilate.
sorry My theory is too long to be explained in a few short paragraphs, and i am still working on some of it, but this is just the introduction.
I hope you understood. I know you may have objections to this theory and will want to argue them out. PLease post them to me in this topic.
