Gravitational lensing proves curved space, not curved space-time. After looking at the experiment that proves curved time, I believe that physicists
erred when they say time curves. If we were to define time as different states of matter(in other words, say we call where you're sitting right now
"present state", then one heart beat later, we call it "future state,") then the more accurate conclusion is that the rate of change of each state
above slows down/speeds up, not that time slows down/speeds up.
In other words, "aging slower" is not the same as saying "time curves," as one might conclude from the Twin thought experiment.
None of this falsifies the "everything happening at once" theory, however. By defining time like above, all of the possibilities of the past,
present and future states may be happening "underneath" or "outside" of space-time already. We simply collapse each possibility to one state, with
every moment that passes by(in all cases, however, "universal time" still passes.)
