Time and perpetual motion
If you see the top spinning, do you assume it had a spinner?
I would if the top looked like it was going to stop. I would assume someone had to start it. If however the top appeared to be in a perpetual spin I might assume it was always that that way.
Every single thing is in motion, down to atoms, sub atomic particles etc, with no sign of stopping. This is how I have looked at time as the measurement of motion for along time (heh).
People consider time as an actual passing of something, I consider it to be simply measuring movement. Time is not "passing" it is a measurement of the movement of things which causes change, perpetually.
Current definitions of time:
- A nonspatial continuum in which events occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future.
- An interval separating two points on this continuum; a duration: a long time since the last war; passed the time reading.
- A number, as of years, days, or minutes, representing such an interval: ran the course in a time just under four minutes.
- A similar number representing a specific point on this continuum, reckoned in hours and minutes: checked her watch and recorded the time, 6:17 a.m.
- A system by which such intervals are measured or such numbers are reckoned: solar time.
If I am correct then time travel and the whole idea is unrealistic and a farce. Is there actual evidence that I am wrong?
The only way "time travel" would be possible would be to set the movement of something to go backwards to a former "state". But this would not actually put you back in an earlier "time" as we see it, it would just be reversing aging by moving things back to said previous state.
Does this even make sense to anyone mor am I alone here.
Faith is the word but next to that snugged up closely "lie's" the want.
