I'm not sure about the whole infinite dimension thing myself, but when I think of this whole supposed gravity effects time thing, I just really
really doubt it. I know they say they've "proven" it with time dilation experiments, but when you think about it, it doesn't add up at all.
For starts, clocks don't measure time at all, they measure cycles or rate of sequential events, such as the suns rotation around the Earth or the
rate sand falling in an hour glass.
Next we have to consider that gravity does have a distinct measurable effect upon matter itself. A clock stationary on Earth receives a constant
gravitational pull at a constant force. A clock speeding about in orbit does not receive the same gravitational pull or force as it constantly dips in
and out between strong and weak gravitational densities. A mountain will exert more force on that clock than a grassland. As this clock is moving in
and out of these variable fields, it's no wonder that the rate the atoms in the clock are moving are so different than the rate of a clock under a
constant pull and force.
I've also read articles discussing how scientists are now starting to doubt the validity of time being a fourth dimension at all, period. Something
I've said for many years now due to the fact that nothing we have has ever measured any 'force of time'. Time just appears to be a useful abstract
