Okay, well right now there are really no good or solid theories on "what is time", some think it does not even exist and is only a by product of
human perception---Thus in the theory I presented in the post above I have taken both of these in to account, because really I feel that time must
exist in some manner
but it is obviously dependent on not only our actions but the actions of all things in reality
. So my postulate is
that time is direct effect of the 'movement' of all physical objects in our reality
. It also is in order with causality so that works out
well in that respect, meaning that the cause ALWAYS proceeds the effect, but yet it also works in quantum theory if we assume a supersymmetric
reality[superstring theory for example] (this accounts for entanglement, while probability distribution and superposition(probability distribution is
basically the quantum law that gives a probability of a particle being anywhere at any given time UNTIL directly observed, then it becomes a physical
particle and ceases to be virtual in nature is irrelevant because it is virtual in nature
.....Superposition is the quantum law that states
multiple electrons must occupy the same the same space at once due to the probability distribution ).
Now in regards to the currently excepted model of the relationship of time and speed, well I think you know that---Time equals distance divided by
rate, while speed equals distance divided by time. But to further commentate on your question let me say that everything that we perceive is nothing
but light reflecting off of mass, so no light equals no seeing (literally),lol. It is hard to imagine a world with absolutely no light at all I know..
So everything we perceive is coming at us at the speed of light (roughly 186,000 mps) but we are so close to everything and the illumination is
constant so it can seem instantaneous but I assure you it is not in all probability.
The mind can only process so much at once so a lot of times it does seem that everything is 'instantaneous' but in fact it is not, although it might
be REALLY, REALLY quick. Time is also relative depending on your frame of reference according to Dr. Einstein, but for general purposes of all of us
on this planet we all move at relatively the same speed so time is pretty constant, so in essence 70 years for you is 70 years for me, although
certain events in our lives may make it SEEM to pass more slowly or faster than others 'feel it pass'. In actuality time is propagated at a constant
rate throughout the Universe, it is only the individual frame of reference that can slow it down or speed it up for individuals in different reference
frames, so while time is observed differently depending on your individual frame of reference it originally 'happens' at the same everywhere if we
were to theoretically balance all frames of reference, which is arbitrary but let us just imagine for this purpose
. So in essence time is a
constant but WE (ie; all physical matter....us, high gravity stars, rapid speeds of matter, etc) are the variable that 'bends it'.
In an example, right now satelittes in GSO (Geosynchronous Orbit) are traveling at around 17,500 mph so their clocks move differently than us here who
are not moving at the same rate. I hope maybe that answered your question a little, sorry about kinda of going long winded but this is a very tricky
subject and I still probably misworded some things,lol. As fa as 70 years going by in the 'blink of an eye', lol speak for yourself I know the last
two years seems like two years,lol.....But it is all relative right?
