Positive gravity effect

  1. Jan 8, 2010 #1
    Hi, this is my first post.. It was something i was thinking about when laying in bed last night about to drift off.

    since spacetime is a "plane" where by mass directly effects the curvature, and in doing so, also effects our concept of time. Lets assume that the curvature of spacetime in a downward fashion reduces our perception of time.

    Is it possible, or plausible to bend spacetime up resulting in our perception of time speeding up?

    or in a vacum are we experiencing time as fast as we could, and any curvature on the spacetime plane, results in a reduced perception?

    I hope this makes sense :D
