Basically the closer to the speed of light you go the closer time approaches "zero".
So three objects are moving at three different speeds to eachother.
One is 2x one is x and one is half-x (0.5x).
Would the total time passage between each of them be equal?
That is to say if 10 years passes for 2x which began its journey first - woudl 10 years have passed for x because it began its journey second but is moving slower (so more time passes in a given moment) and would 10 years have passed for 0.5x because it began its journey third and since it moves the slowest it is therefore passing the most time relatively to everyone else.
I'm wondering what implications that has for the universe's expansion and likewise its effect on the various stars and such moving through the universe which travel at different speeds.
Are they travelling at different speeds ONLY to equalize the perterbations to be expected by the universe's most likely unequal inflation.
