Hello everyone, I've come across a problem that i can't solve but which i find really interesting. I'm not here to ask where the big bang was because i've already read enough about that is was a singularity, so you could say that is was everywhere. But here my problem comes in, if the big bang was everywhere why wasn't it always. Relativity predicts that space and time are from the same type. So is the difference between space and time only created by the big bang, did it just choose to not affect time the same way it affects space. I really want to find out what is the main difference between time and space because there is another issue i'm struggling with. First of all I want to know wether a mass also bends space-time in the dimension of time. I do know that when a big mass is somewhere it bends the space and time with a factor depending on the distance to that mass but does it also bends the space and time when the "radius" isn't a distance but a time. To illustrate it we will say that if there was a black hole besides you now and it just disappears right now. Would the time still go slower for you now although the black hole isn't there anymore. I need the answers on those two question because if it is true that the big bang didn't affect time the same ass space and if time is still bended after a while it would mean that our time is still going faster because the influence the big bang had on our time is still getting smaller due the fact that it is always getting older.
