i heard something really weird. i dont get it totally but it's about absolute zero .theres a theory that even time itself stops in this temperature but isnt that like referring to time as a material thing? i mean, even if something does stop in those circumstances, its still there for a period of time like a year. Are they just referring to the age process ?cos thats understandable

From what you're describing sounds like a bose-einstein condensate. What happens basically ( Look at this site ) is that when atoms reach absolute zero they condense into a single mass, effictively what is nicknamed a ' super atom '. They have been able to do this by slowing the atoms down ( thereby reducing the temperature ) using lasers. They got the temperature down to within a few billionths of a degree when the bose-einstein condensate was formed.
