i think it would still exist. just fine indeed. and a tree falling does make a noise, as long as it hit something as it fell. also the cracking of the
tree (assuming it was broken from its roots in order to fall would be pretty loud if you were within radius to hear
if we werent here, nothing would change. There was a test recently that proved that it doesnt have to be a human witnessing the photon to change it to
a particle. other particles can also "observe" and thus change the properties. so living or non doesnt really matter to it. just as long as
something relies on some kind of answer from it to form its direction/essence
one of my favorite quotes is: The faster you go, the longer you live.
of course that is relative to things that arent going as fast as you. but you age the same to you as you did when you werent going fast so how would
you tell. leave earth going lightspeed for 2 years, and come back the same speed. 2 years away + 2 years back = 4 years total. but because you were
going so fast, you aged 4 years, rest of world aged like 20 (im making numbers up).
this was proved with 2 atomic clocks, one of which was in a satellite, the other on earth. satellite clock came back with less time passed.
people say the universe is expanding at an ever increasing rate. its expanding faster and faster which is completely contradictory to what we know
when we see an explosion. pieces slow down as they encounter friction (air, buildings, people)
if we were here at the ends of the universal clock. we would be accelerating so fast from everything else in the universe, that the image of stars and
galaxies would dissappear. they would be going so fast away from us, that light cant reach us. kinda like the event horizon of a black hole.
we would perceive nothing else outside of our little bubble the heliosphere. we would in fact think that we were the center of the universe because we
couldnt detect anything else.
we would travel in this manner until time literally stopped. if the faster you go the longer you live, then we would be going so fast, we would live
forever. BUT ITS RELATIVE. we wouldnt know we were living forever because time would seem like its our speed still. an outside observer would (if
could) see us blazing past.
and actually if we were in that situation, forever is VERY relative, because we would actually die very soon, since the universe would be OVER.
BACK ON TRACK
1. if we werent here time wouldnt matter.
Time already doesnt matter. its nothing. depends on who you are where you are and what you are next to (gravity matters big time) and if you actually
keep track of time....
2. time doesnt affect inanimate objects.
just as beaches erode and mountains crumble. the amount of time these objects are left to the elements, matters a great deal.
3. particles would be attracted to each other much more than normal, because we arent present.
particles are attracted to each other already, as long as there is an adequate force for attraction. our presence (or lack thereof) wouldnt change
4. vacuum of space is absolute.
is absolutely what? if you mean absolute space time, then you have a mix up. absolute space time is a theory of isaac newton and doesnt work in todays
physics. we know more now. his physics worked then. just like we know a whole lot more about gravity (and its that we know nothing really).
5. light is and can be bent.
true. this goes back to your speed of light highlight again. light (speed of) is bent when you yourself goes super fast, or it encounters lots of
6.photons are charged particles.
they arent. photons have no charge. positive or negative. they are neutral. charged particles are reaching us, and are already here, but they aren't
as for the rest, I'm still really lost what you are asking.
Do you want to know something? or are you explaining that you perceive something different than scientists claim?
I wouldnt have wasted all of this time responding if i wasnt trying to help
just be more clear. USE PARAGRAPHS. 2 different directions of thought need to be split up.
Einstein said that if he had to solve the end of the universe, and it was 1 thousand years away, then he would need 999 years to define the question
in its entirety, and use the remaining year to actually solve it.
figure out what you are asking before you try to solve it.
