Hi, I am new here and have been lurking awhile. I have been reading Stephen Hawkings Theory of Everything and it brought up imaginary time. ( I got this from the library and just saw online he did not endorse this book) It got me thinking. Time is based on Earth's observations to the solar system. So then say we do eventually "colonize" outside earth- earth's time can't be imposed onto a different planet/ place- it wouldn't work. And for the big picture isn't it hard to try to figure the universe out when the current time dimension is really just "earth time" and not "universe time" so to speak. Then when you factor in speed "altering" earth time - well it gets a bit boggling!! Any opinions or ideas on this.
