I've become fascinated by the prospect of using reverse time dilation as a means to achieve a "holy grail" of computational power. I'm probably going to get knocked down by not explaining this right (I haven't studied SR yet) but please try and understand what I mean. If a computer was traveling through time slower than us then it would appear to be working faster than if it was traveling through time in sync with us. It has been suggested that we travel through time at the speed of light. This could have extraordinarily implications for everything from folding proteins and other biological simulations to breaking ridiculously high strength cryptography. Does anyone here have any theories on how reverse time dilation might work. No idea is to far out so don't hold back :) So far I'm thinking about what might be "inside" a black hole or what could happen if exotic matter with negative mass accelerated to super speeds. Perhaps even the best way to do it would be to build CPU's that use Photonics instead of electricity through a semi-conductor. Thanks and I hope this becomes a very exciting thread!
