So there will be a few hypothetical in the original story here, but in the end ill wrap it up with what I believe are facts. My question, how does Einstien’s theory of relativity interact with consciousness? Let’s say I have a twin, he becomes a farmer and I become an astronaut. I go to space one day and come back a few hours later (again hypothetical). While I was in space, I spent 5 minutes extremely close to a black hole, and of coarse that made some fun things happen with time. So I get back, and my twin no longer looks like me, I mean he does but he is about 20 years older (I didn't do the math, do crucify me! I have no clue how much time would be distorted, I just know it would be) then me now. I run up to him and just say “wow.” Now lets look at this from his perspective; a couple hours later, I still wont be back. In fact, I wont be back for 20 years to him. Some random day he is tending his field, and looks up and see’s me, his twin he hasn't seen in 20 years, but I still look the exact same as the day I left 20 years ago. I run up to him and just say say “wow.” Now to me, this would mean 1 of 2 things: 1) There is only 1 consciousness in the universe, (which of coarse would be mine! LOL) and all time is relative to that (I’m seriously doubting this one) 2)What we call the present is relative, and what what I consider now is really the same thing that my twin would call the future. And what my twin would call now is what I would say is 20 years in the past. So riddle me this, if relativity affects us every day, ie. taking a plane, living in the mountains, going to the moon (or mars GO MUSK!), is this affecting us on a microscopic level? And if so or if not, how did you come to that conclusion? And does this mean that I can possibly remember your future? Or even better, are you reading this before I’m even aware that I thought of it?
