Block Universe / Frozen Universe / Block Time

  1. Jan 8, 2007 #1
    In special relativity the time of two events are relative.

    That means that one person's present can be construed as another person's past.

    this would seem to imply that past, present, and future all exist in block universe--in bloock time wherein we live in a frozen universe.

    Does this make sense?

    hey jrrship, not really sure what your getting at here. why dont you check out the twins paradox for some 'one mans present is another mans past' kind of stuff.
