Can I just leave it there? More discussion on my comment will bring in a huge elephant into the room and I do not have enough weapons to defend the animal. I'll clearly lose the argument in a minute.What does this mean? "Phenomena in nature" are physical. So is spacetime. So is whatever quantum "stuff" underlies spacetime.
You do realize that elementary particles can be created or destroyed in various interactions described by quantum field theory, right?It came from my simple observation that everything in the universe, matters, particles, living things, have a survival instinct.
Time dilation happens any time that two observers cannot find a single unequivocal and universe-wide standard for "at the same time" - and as Einstein's relativity of simultaneity thought experiment with the train demonstrates, all that's necessary for such a standard to be impossible is that the observers be moving relative to one another.I was under the assumption that time dilation could occur from an energetic event.
