...one particle from another!
Well I had a thought today, the universe is not expanding "into" anything...we are what we are, a finite universe, but infinite bounds.
Furthermore, I figured Time must have a final incriment a ...singularity... where you can't get any less, such as you have a second, a millisecond,
and so forth, well it has to end somewhere, and I think that minimal incriment of time is in fact none other than simply ONE particle, in the whole
...yup, I mean how else can 2 particles be different? Simple, they are all existing in seperate times, we don't see this though, we see the
"whole" universe (and probably even less than someone else who sees things even slower) because instead of thinking fast enough to observe this
"singular quantum of time that can not be divided" we see maybe a few milliseconds at the most, and so instead of seeing the one only existing
particle at any given moment of time, we see maybe a few quadrillion given points in time, and so we see what is to us the universe.
In reality though, everything only exists in a certain point of time...
for example...if you were to have a board, with say 100 pinholes, and you make it so each pinhole lights up only once...if each pinhole lit up every
second, you'd see 100 individual lights over the span of 100 seconds.
But if you were to make each pinhole light up let's say every billionth of a second, you'd see only a flash of the entire board, to you the whole
board lit up at one time...in reality, the board still lit up ONE POINT AT A TIME.
I think this is the function of the universe, this "point of time" this "quantum" must be what distinguishes all particles from other particles,
because physically every particle is the same, and quantumly we think we can make it so that one particle can exist in two or more places at once, so
the distinguishing factor between say an up quark, and another up quark, is not its place in space, but its place in time!
If the entire number of particles in the WHOLE universe, goes on a cycle that is less than say a quadrillionth of a billionth of a second, then we
have little chance in hell determining experimentally if this is true...because before we can measure what is where, it's already gone through
several cycles and so every individual particle has existed at several different points in time before we make a measurement.
However, mathematically, we should be able to re-arrange equations so that we can determine the finite smallest incriment of time, and rebuild physics
off of that.
Sure it's easier to say 50miles/second(2seconds)=100miles.
But that is wrong...because what is a second? That's not the single smallest point in time, sure it is a constant, but mathematically, we can solve
for the smallest point in time, by rearranging the equations until we have equations that will work for anything, never changing, because in them t=a
constant that is set.
Anyways, this is still my developing theory.
I feel this will certainly impact how we view the universe, because now instead of there being a "mysterious force" that is time, time becomes not a
"force" but a state of being, that can be simply put:
"A point at which something exists, and that something is everything that exists."
And from that we get:
"There is only one existance, and so only one 'thing//particle' can exist at any given point in time."
And from that we can think:
"Time isn't the 4th dimension, it is its own fabric, and has its own dimensions, you have a point of time (only one particle is currently existing
and thus distinct and different from any other particle) you have a line of time (a series of cycles in which seperate distinct particles exist at any
given line of time) and you can even maybe have a cube of time (any block of time in which particles are interacting)"
Remember we must distinguish the differences between "existing" and interaction, because if one particle exists at any given point, then how do they
interact? Simple, by expanding the dimensions of time so that they can not only exist congruently, but interact as well.
And so Time is no longer another dimension, of which we feel its weight, it is a thing unto itself that we are a part of, and it has however many
PS. This is a developing theory, I expanded my idea as I was writing, it, but it's an amazingly new way of thinking, now all that needs to be done,
is to begin fiddling with conventional//classical//and quantum physics, to see how time might play on a single particle...rather than looking at time
as a whole!
