    Thank you.

    I Spacetime relativity

    We measure an accelerated expanding Earth at the surface, we do not measure this with our ruler, but we do measure it with our accelerators.

    I Spacetime relativity

    Because we do not measure it, except with our accelerators.

    B Confusion about the Big Bang

    How would you be able to describe BB as a point? As a part of the energy dilating out from Big bang, I would have an inside view looking out in every direction of space from the hot dense state, the same way we view the CMBR now, not an outside view of a hot dense point, like the view of our sun.

    Pre-Big Bang < than a proton?

    If space were contracting, but space is expanding so could this outward pressure, via big bang, predominate in the early universe or be the cause of inflation?

    Radical new take on *uni*verse questions by Smolin, could be important

    Thank you marcus, you always have the best links.

    Can time have a direction

    Time dilates in every direction. I may be able to talk about the expansion rate of space between two or more objects with two or more directions between them but I would also be correct to speak of space as a single entity dilating in time. Space and time are two ways we use to describe the...

    Can time have a direction

    Sorry I must admit that using the scale factor of the universe as a function of time looks like the best calendar man has to date but I fail to see why this proves my view false.

    Can time have a direction

    On my gps the tracking of my movement with vectors is called the scout program, I used it for backpacking. I see all three elements of time which ever direction I look in the spatial dimensions. Space and time are always intertwined with the observer, in his own present, gazing outward...

    Was the flow of time slower in the early universe?

    Entropy of the universe goes from the order of one simultaneous event, the same for all future clocks, to the disorder of differences between clocks, as viewed via photons, counting their own simultaneous existence.

    Was the flow of time slower in the early universe?

    At some point in the smaller denser hotter past all the makings for all of our clocks were local and ticking at the same rate.

    Was the flow of time slower in the early universe?

    I would think that in the early universe time ticked at the same rate for all clocks, coordinate time was the only time. As the duration of the universe increased the difference between coordinate time of the universe and the proper time of matter began to differ as they aged at about the same...

    Where is the edge of the universe

    I was under the impression that all matter, in the form of atoms, formed just after the decoupling of photons we see as the cmbr. I did not know new atoms were formed all the time I thought that new atoms were just a recombination of existing atoms into heaver ones not new ones. Thanks.

    Where is the edge of the universe

    The duration of a photon from emission til reception added to the age of the emitting atom at emission will always equal the age of the atom that is receiving the photon in the present. Could you please show me the error in my thinking.

    Where is the edge of the universe

    Everything we observe is the same amount of time. The age of the atom at emission of a photon plus the duration of the photon always add up to the same present. Say I look out in the night sky with my hand out in front of me. The age of the atom within my hand plus the duration of the young...
