Yeah that makes more sense now. Well put. Thanks.

What we perceive as time varies with energy density/velocity. However, our rate of time could just be a one dimensional projection of a multidimensional concept, where the magnitude of multidimensional time is constant.

First, hello, all! I hope I am at home here.
I, as well, firmly believe time is constant. Someone likened it unto a scale previously and that is exactly what it is. Time only exists in that we have concieved it as a measuring scale for comparison of places or events. That is it is a figment of our imagination. Perception of time is so easily confused with true time which is the duration of an event or object in its environment acted on by the sum of all vectors. King Wildog

*performs thread necromancy ritual*
All time is relative. There is no objective reference that we can point to and say it is how we can measure time as a constant. In effect it really doesn't exist. How can we then be sure that anything we measure is accurate? Is the speed of light constant in a vacuum? You cannot accurately measure the speed of anything because speed is the measurement of distance traveled through time. Since we don't have accurate/constant time, we can't have accurate speed. All equations involving time are thus negated. SR becomes CR(Circular Relativity) Am I missing something? Please tell me I'm wrong about this.
