Hi, this is my first post.. It was something i was thinking about when laying in bed last night about to drift off.

since spacetime is a "plane" where by mass directly effects the curvature, and in doing so, also effects our concept of time. Lets assume that the curvature of spacetime in a downward fashion reduces our perception of time.

Is it possible, or plausible to bend spacetime up resulting in our perception of time speeding up?

or in a vacum are we experiencing time as fast as we could, and any curvature on the spacetime plane, results in a reduced perception?

I hope this makes sense :D
