ow. fuck you science
mainly because when we had a lecture about I only wrote down "reciprocity" as the answer. Bad note-taking leads to bad medicine.
What don't you get?
until string theory is resolved.
thereby sticking it to your less-youthful-looking twin.
so I wouldn't worry about it.
I've never heard of it.
From looking at tipimits post do i conclude that its about moving clocks going slower?
Cos i have an interesting possible expansion to that
i can't explain it. Einstein can. Its a good read if you are into this stuff
i knw the moving objects and different times thing, its best considered when up against a really big variance like round a black hole, obviously a black hole is used here as an example of an extremity which helps to show us what happens at the extreme edges of a graph.......im not quite so sure if it is actually the different speed though.....or the cause of the different speed, i.e. stretched curved space or acceleration/decelleration (or its vector change equivalent). It depends how you measure or define time really......is it the time that light travels a certain distance? (in which case what happens if you stretch or curve that distance/space) or would you define time by something else we normally hold to be constant like say atomic clocks (they use atomic decay, which is considered to be fairly constant with some materials) do you consider time to be an actual thing? or a variable in an equation that could in itself be comprised of different factors.
Or is it a dimension? in which case cant it be stretched (like space) by such as gravity?
indeed is gravity actually a thing? does space and mass just show the phenomena of gravity? can it manifest itself without time? I dont think so, but i can't be certain
yet gravity does affect it, so does gravity actually need mass to manifest itself?
Mass is just a manifestation of energy and vice versa.
Mass and energy are surely not entirely different, they just have 'tendancies' we only begin to see this at the parabolic extremities
Is it purely due to the different speed? or is it due to the differing acceleration/deceleration (which would be through different vectors) indeed would enough changing of vectors amount to the same as acceleration/deceleration.
Since space is curved is it merely that most natural bodies without (unatural forces beingforced upon them) tend to occupy and flow along in curved space better, than do smaller ones that occupy their own smaller curve of space that is mostly against the larger cmore significant gradients..... could it also not be an element that that which occupies more immediately gradiated space actually ages faster (uses up more time) loses tacheons (if one were to propose that such a thing existed) or does the gradient just means that time flows faster in a spacial gradient
(in these cases the curvature or gradient of space that i am referring to is that which is caused by gravity induced by a body of mass) (many of the moving clock experiments have involved aircraft or rockets with atomic clocks identical to ones ones on earth.....aircraft or rockets get further from earths gravitational gradient so it is not so steep..........it could also just be that atomic decay takes place slower at speed (or suring vector changes.speed changes......this is different from time being different, although in prctice it might mean it to all intents and practical purposes)
the stuff gravity comes from general relativity and the twins paradox is a thought experiment which pre-dates this theory. it was used to explain special relativity which was simply about different reference frames and their relationship to the speed of light in a vacuum.
stuff *about* gravity
which helps determine speed or time, depending if you consider how long in time something travels a distance, or how far in distance something travels in a particular time
or the need to expend energy to make a resting body move or a travelling body to slow down (or change vector of travel) is part of the same underlying 'thing' but they are different manifestations (that occur cos of mass and space and time) to not consider one of the factors (gravity....or its parent) meanse that you cannot consider the other factors (including time)
which is ok if you want to
which is of course something that he regretably didnt manage to do in time, but its actually not that difficult to understand, but it is a bugger to prove or explain.
You just need to try to understand the connection between all the forces and their relationships, we see them through the prism of spatial and temporal dimensions, and thus have to try to reassemble and see which are manifestations of what and see how what is split by what.....after all we only have a few senses with which to pick up certain manifestations, we have learnt to develope instruments to measure other manifestations, but still our instruments tend to be limited from being made out of mass and energy occupying space and time.......we are relatively rudimentary when it comes to measuring and representing gravitational fluctations and mapping gravity shapes or curves, we tend to represent it to other humans as a two dimensional plane warped and bent into 3
unified field theory arnt actually as complicated as you might think, however to know when you are right exactly einstein would have used some proof by other means to conclude that he was indeed correct in what he had worked out. i am not a great mathematician with algebraic rules n axioms ne s stuff so would have great problems anywhere near proving this mathematically
I'm working as hard as I can creaky! Its tricky stuff!
since i realised it was rubbish at the end of my first year at uni and dropped it as quickly as i could.
as the only speed that matters is speed relative to the speed of light, which is a constant in any frame of reference.
It all depends which twin undergoes acceleration.
Haven't you guys learnt anything from General Relativity?
Yeah: "Live fast, die young".
not general relativity (which is actually more complicated and came later, in a similarly confusing fashion to the laws of thermodynamics).
As it's to do with acceleration....
and have different hair colours
