Read the other one this is messed up

Well, you're getting the idea. He said that C is a constant but not the only constant. He says nothing about what happens if one could get to C, only what happens as we approach this apparent speed limit. You need to do some more reading but you're starting to get it.Originally posted by The_oMeGa
He said that the speed of light was the only constant in the universe
So....are you taking time as a spatial dimension....The fourth dimension is time. Imagine time as a platform that is pushing you forward at the speed of light.
No... dimension is the number of linearly independant directions.Dimension is freedom to move
What i? The only way time is distinguished in SR and GR is from the signature of the metric, which is chosen to agree with reality, not because time really isn't a dimension and we're fudging the mathematics to make it look like a dimension.That is why tiny "i" in front of it in all SR, GR and QM equations
I appologize, but after reading your messagesOriginally posted by The_oMeGa
So my whole theory is nothing new?
Can you expand on how 'inversely' time varies?Time is relative to the observer, and varies inversley with the speed of the observer but only when the observer has reached the speed of light.
A line, drag? A line describes a 2D surface...but then you said you used 2D for simplicity. But, you also included a 3 demensional figure, a cone into the example, so now I'm a little bewildered.then time is the line passing
through that point and the center of a 2D (for
a simple example) cone and the growing weidth
of the cone are the spacial dimensions
Is time a direction?Originally posted by Hurkyl

That is exactly what we do (fudging the mathematics for our convinience). Because math is strictly logic, it shows us that time and space don't mix, forcing us to separate them by i=(-1)^{0.5}

Isn't time supposed to be a vector, not a scalar ?Originally posted by Alexander
Is time a direction?
If you think so, then how about energy, or
mass, or temperature?
It's not really a cone if it's 2D, you're right.Originally posted by MajinVegeta

Nope. Neither is space or position.Is time a direction?
Do left and right mix?That is exactly what we do (fudging the mathematics for our convinience). Because math is strictly logic, it shows us that time and space don't mix, forcing us to separate them by i=(-1)^{0.5}
