# Time Definition-Forth Dimention

• toppam
In summary, the conversation discusses the definition of time, with the theory that it is the 4th dimension and is correlated with the other dimensions. The concept of time is also connected to events in a system, with the shortest distance between two events determined by a plane parallel to the straight line between them. The speaker also introduces the idea of a "quantum of time," where a is a pure number representing the seconds. They also mention that a positive change in a (da) indicates forward movement in time, while a negative change indicates backward movement. The speaker's concept of time differs slightly from the common understanding.

Time Definition
If we go to search everything about definition of time finally will be a disillusion because of confusing definitions.
My theory will brink you clear vision about fog and confusion.

Here the definition of time: Time is 4th dimension and is equal to radius of sphere where the space is defined. Compression or expansion of space will generate compression or expansion of time. All four dimensions are correlated and cannot be separated. More concise: space is surrounded by time or defined by time and part of time. This is way so far time cannot be seen because is hard to be seen from inside.

just don't kick me off(the post is good)

i think that time is strongly related with the events in one system.every event corespons to its own moment in time like this:
say one system is regulated with this law F=PS
F=force
P=presure
S=surface
the three (F,P,S) is legal event if it respects the law
say you start from (F1,P1,S1) and endup in (F2,P2,S2)
the vector (dF,dP,dS)
in (F1,P1,S1) is (P1*dS+S1*dP,dP,dS)
and
in (F2,P2,S2) is (-P2*dS-S2*dP,-dP,-dS)
if you want the shortest distance from event1 to event2 you have to set a plane thru event1, event2 parallel with the straith line from event1 to event2.so it has to be
F=a(P1*dS+S1*dP)-b(P2*dS+S2*dP)=ab*dP*dS and
P=(a-b)dP and
S=(a-b)dS or
a(dF,dP,dS)(1)-b(dF,dP,dS)(2)=(F,P,S)
(there are also other ways of finding the shortest legal trajectory)
now find b(a);
b1=-0.5(P1/dP)-0.5(S1/dS)-0.5*sqrt(sqr((P1/dP)+(S1/dS))-8a);
b2=-0.5(P1/dP)-0.5(S1/dS)+0.5*sqrt(sqr((P1/dP)+(S1/dS))-8a);
now you get:
b=f(a)
F=f1(a,P1,P2,S1,S2)
P=f2(a,P1,P2)
S=f3(a,S1,S2)
where a is pure number and it is the quantum of time.
assign seconds to a and you get dimension time.

NOW da>0 MEANS FORWARD IN TIME WHILE da<0 MEANS BACKWARD IN TIME.
da=0 means time is frozen/no changes.
you see my concept of time is slightly different from the common one.

This is about his crackpot theory, not yours dock...

toppam: this may be stupid/obvious, but what is a sphere in 4 dimensional space?

## 1. What is the fourth dimension in time definition?

The fourth dimension in time definition refers to the concept of time as a fourth dimension in addition to the three dimensions of space (length, width, and height). It is often referred to as the "time dimension" or "temporal dimension" and is an essential part of the theory of relativity.

## 2. How is the fourth dimension different from the other three dimensions?

The fourth dimension, time, is different from the other three dimensions of space in that it only moves in one direction (forward). In contrast, the three dimensions of space allow for movement in multiple directions.

## 3. Can we physically experience the fourth dimension?

No, we cannot physically experience the fourth dimension in the same way that we experience the three dimensions of space. Time is a concept that we can measure and observe, but we cannot physically move through it like we can with space.

## 4. How does the fourth dimension affect our perception of time?

The fourth dimension, time, affects our perception of time by allowing us to measure and understand the duration of events. It also allows us to experience the passage of time and make comparisons between past, present, and future moments.

## 5. Is the concept of the fourth dimension universally accepted in the scientific community?

Yes, the concept of the fourth dimension is widely accepted in the scientific community and is an essential part of theories such as relativity and quantum mechanics. However, there are ongoing debates and research about the nature and properties of the fourth dimension.
