I came across this study a while ago that showed how just our observation of atoms or molecules effected how they reacted to certain stimulis. I dont have time to look for it now, but I will look later and post.
To an outside observer watching you slow down, it looks to them like your time is speeding up, but inside your ship you can't tell any difference in the passage of time.

The faster you move through space the slower time acts on the objects moving. It would seem to me if you slow down time would speed up.
Well if you keep going slower and time keeps going faster for you as you slow down, then if you stop, time reaches the maximum speed.
But what if you stoped in relation to space?

Xeven... that wasn't me who posted a link, was it? If it was I have a very bad short term memory.
the idea that it all started with a nudge and not a huge explosion is interesting indeed... but could you imagine how long it would take for just one nudge to create all that energy? God must be really damn old.
About the clocks, that is very interesting. how in the hell would that even be possible? I'm not even going to theorize. I guess I will read the ideas that they have already come up with if it's in short format.

I am curious if movement through space actually causes time to exist? The faster you move through space the slower time acts on the objects moving. It would seem to me if you slow down time would speed up.
But what if you stoped in relation to space? If you lanched a probe and sent it directly away from the path of our Galaxy to the point where it was at rest in space in relation to the speed our galaxy moves or in relation to the speed of light, would time even exist?
If that probe had a telescope what would it see in a place where time does not exist? Seems like this would be an easy experiment to test. if you turned on a laser on this probe would it even emit light or would that light be traped due to time not existing like in a black hole?
We don't really know exactly what happens inside the event horizon but if time stops anywhere my guess would be that's where time would stop, inside the event horizon of a black hole.

Two objects A) and B) travelling at the speed of light in opposite directions. From the perspective of object A), would object B) be travelling at 2X the speed of light? From the perspective of object B), would object A) be travelling at 2X the speed of light?
If this is true then faster than speed of light is possible no?

In the Orange County scene, a Beech model C-18S flies through a highway billboard advertising Coca-Cola. The plane was flown by stuntman Frank Tallman, but a communications mix-up resulted in the use of linen graphic sheets on the sign rather than paper, as planned. Linen is much tougher than paper, and the plane was nearly destroyed on impact. Tallman managed to fly it back to the airstrip, discovering that the leading edges of the wings had been smashed all the way back to the wing spars. Tallman considered that incident the closest he ever came to dying on film. (Both Tallman and his business partner and fellow flier on Mad World, Paul Mantz, would eventually die in separate air crashes over a decade apart.) In the movie the airplane is shown crashing through an airport restaurant's plate glass window and stopping abruptly. Careful viewing will show an arresting cable that was tied to the tail of the airplane at just the right length to make the aircraft stop as it hits a curbing. Part of the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital retirement community, in Woodland Hills, is visible in the background of the scene where characters Lenny Pike and Mrs. Marcus (in the tow truck Pike stole from the service station he destroyed in his rampage) stop at an intersection (of present-day Mulholland Drive, Valley Circle Boulevard, Avenue San Luis, and Calabasas Road) before making a U-turn. Director Kramer died in the hospital of the retirement community in 2001. Although the fictional city of Santa Rosita was really shot in Long Beach, California; Rancho Palos Verdes, California; San Pedro, California; and Santa Monica, California; Santa Rosita's location on a map in the police station scenes was (supposedly) south of San Diego, California, and north along the coast from Mexico, hence Culpepper's attempt to flee there. Since San Diego's southern city limits border Mexico, the southernmost "X" would coincide with somewhere between the eastern part of Imperial Beach, California and the southern part of Chula Vista, California.

Is this to say that if the world stops spinning, time stops?

Time is nothing more than a label man made to describe the passing of events.
Time is essentially nothing. You cannot add, subtract, slow, or speed up time.

Nice idea,find out how fast the universe is expanding then make your object travel that speed but in the opposite direction then the object would be the only body in space that was truly not moving. Kind of like walking the wrong way on a treadmill or travelator to maintain the same position as somebody standing on the ground next to you.
Weeks and months and years are not really relavent. We have selected these terms to describe what day week,month, year for our own convinence.
The planet Jupiter is, let's say for the sake of easy math 100 times larger than earth. If you went to the planet Jupiter and stayed there for one Jupiter day, that would equal 100 earth days. In other words,if it took you 100 Earth days to travel to Jupiter that is equal to one Jupiter day.
We are leaving a known time factor ( Earth time ) and entering an unknown time factor of Space time or the mearsurement and /or spinning of planetaries bodies that all have a different time because they spin or turn at different rates of speed, either faster or slower than Earth.
