Time and temperature theory
I came up with this thought while buzzing one night in August 2005 and posted it on a forum. Noone came up with anything relevant to add to it though most thought it an interesting idea. Admittedly, I'm no physicist. There are some here with a greater understanding of the sciences than anyone at the previous forum(including myself), so I figured I'd expand on input by reposting it here.
I just had an interesting thought. Anyone and everyone can feel free to put in their thoughts and/or criticizms of this thought. I did a bit of looking around to see if I could see anything on it(for or against), and I couldn't.
I put forward to you that temperature can affect time.
According to many different accepted scientific rules and theories, space and time are linked. In linked systems, when something affects one, the other would also be affected.
It is a well established fact that molecules move faster when warmer, and slower when cooler. It is theory that if you could bring the temperature to absolute zero (0 Kelvin/-273.15 Celsius/-459.67 Farenheit), all matter would cease movement. It's theory because as yet we've been unable to achieve 0 Kelvin, so we don't know for certain.
If time and space are linked(as per scientists like Einstein), and 0 kelvin would cause all matter and energy to....well....freeze(lol), the effect would theoretically freeze time as well. If that is true, then any temperature difference would have time moving at different rates in different places.
Obviously I don't have the kind of resources to test this theory, but I think it's an interesting one.
