Ì was wondering if anybody here can explain in which dimension time is? We can think that it is in every one of them, of course, but this is not
exactly what I am about. Time is usually considered fourth dimension, if I have understood physics on this correctly. What if it is in fact the
first?
I wanted to share this because I had a dream about this. I propably develop this way of thinking further because I think these kinds of things are fun
to do. I don't care that much about accuracy in real life, but it would be neat if equations would allow this point of view.
This is mostly just a point of view that I am talking about, I'm not sure if equations will allow this kind of thinking. Here comes:
We have a problem in equations such that every law in physics works in both directions. Time, so far, doesn't. It helps us understand symmetry and to
realize that there is a possibility that symmetry is the correct way of thinking physics. Time remains a problem in it though because we cannot (at
least not yet) run our equations in both directions in a concrete way. IF however we think time as being first dimension instead of fourth, we come to
a conclusion that since it is in a way 1D-space and plane, there is no way for it to "turn around". It even works if we think of different time
lines, all going along in a straigth line one after another. We can't jump past another timeline, thus our time cannot turn in such a plane. This
would have to apply so that in our 3D-world, all axises have this single dimension constant that cannot reverse itself because other timelines push
this one forward.
