Does the relative motion of a thing slow down the relative motion of a thing? Hope that makes sense or you can work out what I mean.
Yup, there it is, nothing new under the sun. What if time dilation isnt a perceived effect, but an actual change in the plane of time?
What do you mean by an "actual change" ? Time "really is" dependent on your coordinate system. And what do you mean by the "plane of time" ?
Time dilation does not cause the moving thing to move slower. Its speed is the same relative to some other thing as that other thing's speed is to it because there is also length contraction. The two act in concert to yield the same relative speed between the two things whether you consider the first to be moving and the second stationary or the other way around.If time dilation is a consequence of moving and time dilation is essentially “moving slower” then why doesn’t time dilation affect the motion that causes it? How does the time difference of time dilation occur without acceleration?
