DEMENTION 2:A plane, made uip of infinite lines.
DEMENTION 3:A space, made up of infinite stacked planes
DEMENTION 4:A time of that plane. Lets say that plane changes every xenosecond, therefor the 4D cordinates change depending on time

The fuck? Do you even understand what a dimension is? It's an independent axis of change. A change in one axis has 0 effect any other axis, otherwise they're not independent dimensions.

That's only true if you consider time to be a separate dimension. It's possible that time, like gravity, or electromagnetism, exists as a field.

I, personally, thin the theory you subscribe to is correct, but the field theory also has merit.

Time doesn't objectively exist, though. It's only a concept. We can observe things change. They move. But that doesnt make time real. It's just a concept in our minds. It's hard to wrap your mind around all the way because our whole way of life is so deeply entrenched in time, but when you finally see that it's an illusion it'll blow your mind.

The way we percieve time may be false, but you can't claim that things don't change. Change means there has to be an axis for things to move forward on, hence time. You can't have something change and stay the same.

Time != space
Though, one is essentially the inverse of the other, as they are two halves of a single space-time.

Also, time does not expand per se, nor is the flow of time even consistent throughout the universe.

Look up gravitation time dilation for a better understanding of how space and time react.

Honestly, just actually read some Hawking or Einstein and stop going to the weird side of youtube for scientific knowledge.

Ill try again. Just try and think about this for a second.

Think of everything that ever happens in the world as MOVEMENTS. Everything is constantly moving. The Earth is orbiting the sun and the moon is orbiting the Earth, and this causes night and day.

An old man can think back to when he was 20 as if it was a different TIME. But there is no other time than NOW. Everything always happening right NOW. Just because the man grew older does not make TIME real. Its just a concept. It only exists in our heads.

You keep saying that time has to exist because things change. But that's just not true. It doesn't have to exist anywhere other than in our minds, because it doesn't.

>>582497159

think about that.
>>
>>582495178
We use time only to calculate "deltas" or changes. If time stopped, all changes stop. Earth stops. Temperature never changes. Light freezes in place. Quantum fields stop popping particles in and out of existence... no changes. Ever.

There's a theory that once the universe runs it's course and all the sum energies in the universe go back to zero, then time will essentially stop until another big bang happens. Nifty shiz-nit

I wanna tell you something OP, The universe will expand, then it will collapse back on itself, then will expand again. It will repeat this process forever. What you don't you know is that when the universe expands again, everything will be as it is now. Whatever mistakes you make this time around, you will live through on your next pass. Every mistake you make, you will live through again, & again, forever. So my advice to you is to get it right this time around. Because this time is all you have.

I'm not trying to be deep or anything. It's a really simple thing to grasp, but it can be hard to grasp at the same time and even harder to explain.

I'm not trying to say anything mystical or philosophical. Its plain and simple. There is no TIMELINE. It's just the way that we humans think of and perceive things. Kind of like an optical illusion only not entirely optical.

There's still change you retard. You can't have movement without time. Even if time is just another spatial dimension that we can only observe moments of, it exists. With only 3 dimensions you have an unchanging object, for it to move you need a fourth one where the object can change.

You guys are getting stuck on a timeline. You're thinking in terms of human lives and stories.

Anna found out she had cancer. A month later she started treatment. Several months later it failed and died.

The months that passed are our unit of measurement for the day/night cycles of the earth which are MOVEMENTS. There is no past where Anna found out she had cancer. It doesn't exist. Anna went through many movements or events or whatever you want to call them from the time she found out she had cancer until her death, but all those movements were happening NOW. UNLESS - you are referring to the concept we have of her movements on a timeline. And concepts don't exist!

1.) {___[_]}

1.a) The title is indicative of the dimensionality of space, minus the existential factor, where the original three underscores are the primary dimensions; Length, Height and Depth. The inner brackets, along with the additional underscore, indicate a fourth necessary, though paradoxical part of the original three dimensions, dimension-esque factor, time. For all three dimensions to exist, an overlay in universal dimensions must occur. This overlay is time. Time ties the original three dimensions together, along with the next two additional dimensions in the bracket of time's set of three (plus the fourth, bi-dimension), where time itself is the linear (length), by allowing depth to occur. Without time, only the illusion of depth could be achieved by a perceptive force. Though the dimensions occur in sets of three, there will always be a fourth, paradoxical, dimensional-esque aspect created by the sum of the three. This fourth aspect is a bridge and a glue, holding the three dimensions before it whole, and laying the foundation as the first aspect in the next set of three. Time, being this aspect, is the linear function, which being as it's also the first aspect in it's very own set of three, shows a correlation among dimensions in space since the first dimension in the perceptive set before time's set also is linear. Considering the idea that life is in fact time, since time must be rooted in the original three dimensions of space, is a truly wondrous notion... Then gliding into the idea that life, in turn, also gives birth to the next set of three dimensions within itself is only that much more awe inspiring.
>>
>>582497806
Yeah there's no timeline, the universe is in a state of constant change. But there is a dimension for that change to take place in. Time exists, it's you who has a stuck up idea about what the term means.

>>582498967
Time isn't just a concept. Even gravity is a concept made up by humans, but the effects are observable. Same with time, we don't know how it works or what it even is, but there is a dimension that allows change.
>>
>>582498952
Why does there being a dimension for change to take place in mean that time is a real thing?

And I'm not being stuck up.
>>
>>582494069
Sorry, no but this simply is not true.
This implies that a 2 dimensional world could not have time, as it couldn't bypass the 3rd dimension to experience the 4th.

Also, dimensions are shit like X,Y,Z, or directions in space. Time can not be a direction in space. Time itself would actually theoretically have dimensions, since it is the counterpart of space.

>>582494090
No, just no.

>>582494220
Not even close to separate. One directly influences the other.

>>582494662
This is actually fairly astute.
For example, we have a working model of quantum physics; enough so to design technology around the model that works. Yet, we still no fuck all about quantum mechanics at the deeper levels.

>>582495178
>I mean if time stops does the earth stops?
wut

Stop what? rotating, revolving? No shit it does. Movement is change in space over time, so no time means no movement.

In fact, it also technically things wouldn't have force, weight, and a slew of over shit.


>>582495359
Wut.
No.
First of all it's space-time, not time-space.
time-space is theoretical. For instance, lets say you suddenly popped over into time-space, for every bit of "space" you moved, you'd have moved that much in time when you returned to space-time. The two are basically opposing counterparts.

>>
>>582498014
No... just because you can't measure time, it doesn't mean it stops.

If I'm on the island, and observing, time continues. I suppose it's a bit like the tree-falling-in-the-woods parable.

However, just because nothing changes macroscopically, it doesn't mean that things in the subatomic world have stopped. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, it doesn't mean the universe and galaxies have ceased their motion.

That does not mean that there is time... It only means that there is change... Time is when you put those changes on a Timeline and think in terms of past and future and present...

Depends on how you define collapse. It's not gonna suck itself back into a singularity like how it initially existed. It's energy will reach zero and simply stop existing. It's collapse will be in relation to it's fields, not it's dimension.

>time is a unit of measurement.
Nigga, how high are you?
Time is not a measurement. There are measurements OF TIME, but time itself is the thing being measured.

Though, you are somewhat correct, but only accidentally.
Time doesn't exist how we perceive it. Our brains can internally slow or speed the perception of time, changing our own ability to gauge time passed. Clocks and whatnot don't experience perception, so are accurate.
Then there's also things that alter the actual flow of time and not the perceived flow. Gravity not only bends space around it, but time as well. Gravitational Time Dilation.

You say to get it right THIS time, but that's assuming this is the first instance of the universe. Otherwise, we can't get it right if we hadn't already before based on your interpretation.

>>582497806
That's because time isn't a line. Time is a series of independent realities that form to conform to every possible outcome of all situations. Before the outcome becomes part of our world, it exists as a waveform of all probability. Each resulting universe only contains one outcome from the collapsed waveform.

>>582500540
Nothing is real by your retarded logic. The universe is a concept. We can still observe how it works, it doesn't make it any less real that it's a concept. We literally can't communicate a non-concept. Also, you can't prove that the world exists outside of your mind so your argument kinda falls flat there already, if you're trying to discredit the human mind as an instrument of observation.

Just like gravity, we can only observe it through it's interaction with matter.

That's pretty vague, anon. Fuck you are altering time right now.

Do you mean in the physical sense as in being stretched by gravity?

Or like.. shit happening in time?

If time does not exist, then how can motion exist?

Yes, I know you can say
"well we just use the CONCEPT to mathematically understand motion, as we can only see it as distance over time"

but to that I say:

How ELSE can it be seen?
I'm open to crazy scientific ideas.
Fuck, I openly disagree with mainstream science about mass being responsible for gravity. It's quite obviously energy density, not mass that determines gravity.

So enlighten me anon, how can motion exist without time? How can force, or weight, or anything at all, exist without time?

Fuck mass couldn't even exist without time. E=mC^2

C = speed of light as a constant

Speed = distance over time

Explain this shit to me.

wut.
Wtf is maths?
Since when do I need to pluralize a fucking shortened word?

That's like be saying I'm doing sciences.
I don't give a shit what nation you hail from, that shit sounds fucking retarded.
>>
>>582502941
Thanks but I haven't studied any science either. I think these people just have some fundamental flaw in their thinking that prevents them from grasping logical concepts.

stop being this. you know why there are atleast "17".

dont be this guy

Yep! Even more, when space starts to collapse again, time will run backwards and OP will be drawn back into the vagina of its mother. Pic related

>>582503192
That doesn't make sense. Those are just words...

>It's just me moving
>for 6 hours

So you moved over a certain distance for a certain time?
Cool story, bro.
Whoa.. trippy. My captcha has "pluralized" in it, and I just posted this a second ago
>>582503530
>>
>>582503192
But the change of moving from point a to b is still there, and it's obsevable from the consequence of you being somewhere else when you turn your brain on again
>implying
Also the universe isn't dependent on human observation. Things keep changing without us having to document the change. Your brain is fucking broken.
>>
>>582494090
Time has a different metric than space.
e.g. the length of a 4-vector is sqrt(x²+y²+z² - t²)
>>
minkowski's space explain the independency between space and time.
>>
>>582503997
Youre using concepts again. And Im not saying theres anything wrong with that. Im saying there is no reality to a concept of measuring time!

I moved over a certain distance for a certain time. Yeah. 6 hours. 6 Earth hours. That is a unit of measurement made up by humans based on the movements of our planet.
>>
>>582504118
>Also the universe isn't dependent on human observation

Weeeelllll.... kinda.
Look up the observer effect.
Let me be clear though.
The observer effect in no way makes any of this nonsense valid at all
>>582503192
>>
>>582504118
YES. THINGS CHANGE. BUT THE CONCEPT OF TIME ONLY COMES INTO PLAY WHEN WE THINK OF IT. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, EVEN AN ENTIRE PLANET OF HUMANS THINKING OF THE SAME CONCEPT DOES NOT GIVE IT AN OBJECTIVE REALITY!

Time is merely a concept created by our minds to better understand the universe. One second is based on the vibrations of the cesium atom.
There are, however, states of being. If that can be altered I do not know. Also time travel is impossible. For one, if you generate enough energy to do so you would create a black hole. Second, you would create a paradox just by being in the past.
>>
>>582504348
Okay, but you are measuring something that exists, you dipshit.
I don't care if you measure them in hours, seconds, or some made up unit called cockgarglingtiddlywinks.

You are still measuring something that exists. Stop with this "earth hours" bullshit.

For instance, if I measure space in inches, meters, or fuck even fathoms, I'm still measuring the same amount of space.

Are you going to tell me space doesn't exist?

HUR DUR HOOMANS MADE UP SPACE
ITS JUST A UNIT OF MEASUREMENT
>>
>>582502682
not quite. We use mathematics to try and predict the outcome of a given event. We can show how time travel is possible mathematically. If we warp space into a shape that would allow us to end a journey before the point we started, we've essentially time traveled.

To actually do it would require technology that could bend space in a massive way... like how a black hole does it.

Then again, if we ever discover that time is a field and has particles (chronotons), there's a chance we could send information or material in any direction in time... but that theory is not widely accepted. I don't think we're gonna find gravitons either. :)
>>
>>582504421
Yeah I know that propability and shit is decided when you observe the result but on this level it doesn't matter.
>>582504530
So you're saying that the human mind isn't real. That thoughts aren't real. Sure, we don't make things with our minds, but we do observe, and in this case the concept that we created reflects something very real. If this really is what you were saying, you were using an extremely vague and idiotic way of explaining. Also that's some elementary level shit.
>>
>>582493694
the answer to your question is no.
>>
>>582504835
Youre applying measurements to movements............ not time...............
>>
>>582504729
Heisenberg actually.

Schrodinger is related, as well as the guy I mentioned earlier, Hugh Everett.

The true nature of the quantum world and it's interaction with observers is still very unclear.

>>582504919
Look just stick with this specific topic and dont branch out because we can get into all kinds of shit that I dont wanna get into, Time doesnt exist. This is really easy to understand. You're just not grasping it.
>>
>>582494364
time=/=space
time=entropy
entropy=decay

time will cease when all molecules become so cold (having lost any energy they might have had) that they cannot be considered anything but "burnt out".
which will happen in about 10 to the power of 100 to the power of 100 years from now.
it's called the heat death theory.

time ends when matter no longer turns to energy, and energy no longer turns to matter. but you won't be able to comprehend that, so just give up now and focus on more important questions.

like why is OP such a colossal faggot?

>>582505008

>>582505182
Explain what you mean by time. I mean the dimension. Time as a dimension exists.
>>
>>582493694

HOMER, I FIND YOUR CONCEPT OF A DOUGHNUT SHAPED UNIVERSE INTRIGUING.
>>
>>582504982
What?

What the fuck are you saying?

You don't measure a movement.
You measure the space moved, or the time it took to move.

Hours, seconds, minutes, etc = measurements of time

inches, feet, meters, etc = measurements of space.

This is grade school shit, anon.

Either you are a bad troll, or I feel really sorry for you.
Either way, your IQ is likely lower than room temperature.

>>582505182
It does exist man. Just accept it.

If there is one thing that watching interstellar taught me it is that if you eject from a spaceship into a worm hole you will go into a weird dimension where you are surrounded by bookshelves. So that should answer your question.
>>
>>582505456
Any concept of time. Even your dimension of time doesnt exist. Past, future. Do not exist. There are all mental human constructs.

Even from your dimensional standpoint. Why complicate it and say there has to be a dimension for time? Why not say there is a dimension for change?
>>
>>582505128
Bullshit. If it effects time it is not limited to just the person that created it. It is linked to all the timelines between that persons present and the past that they traveled to.
>>
>>582505223
No.. no.. no

Time is the vector through with entropy can express itself.

You can only observe entropy over time.

That's like saying speed=time.

time is the counterpart of space

entropy the counterpart to synergy

gravity is the counterpart of levity


Everything has a counterpart in physics.
>>
define 'time'.
what is its function?
>>
>>582494036

To me, if everything remains inanimate, time isn't flowing. Time flows precisely because there is movement that allows us to distinguish "past" from "present".
>>
>>582505539
Dude

Like, what the fuck is wrong with you that you keep reiterating the same shit over and over?

Ive fucking said a million times that time is a measurement. ITS A FUCKING MEASUREMENT ANON. AND WE MADE UP HOURS SECONDS AND MINUTES YOU DUMB ASPARTAME SATURATED FUCK.

WE MADE UP THESE MEASUREMENTS WHICH ARE BASED ON MOVEMENTS
>>
>>582505796
i've never said it's linked to a person
its bond to an qantum event which occurs within an event, which is an event in the timeline and which traveled in a timeline
>>
>>582505740
I'm not talking about past and future, I'm talking about change. Do you claim that change does not exist? TIME IS WHAT WE USE AS A WORD TO DESCRIBE THE DIMENSION OF CHANGE. Your dimension of change is time, don't make up new terms for things that have been named already.
In fact, just kill yourself, I think it's the only way. Or at least don't breed, do us that solid.
>>
>>582505880
time has no function.
Things can be functions OF time.
>>
>>582505880
define 'horizontal'
what is its function?
