- We can affect the passage of time by motion or gravity, does this make it just a parameter affected by "things" in the universe? We can make it go faster?
I accept that time can pass at different rates depending on if the applied motion or gravity (both a parameter in some formula) and as a result time passes at a different rate. However, this seems to imply that we have some control over how slow time may pass. So, if that is just a fact of the physical universe, please let us develop a means of speeding up time. The math problems that would take the age of the universe to calculate could be done in a blink of the eye if the appropriate values of attributes were applied to whatever controls the passage of time for an object such as a computer. Since slowing time down does not seem to violate any of the fundamental laws of the universe perhaps speeding time up will work? I did some searching on the web and did not find anything about this.
