Is it possible for time to be a "Mobius dimension," with its non-linear topology and simultaneous one-way linear direction, as described by relativity theory?

Haelfix said:I imagine some mathematician has probably solved the field equatiosn for a metric using Mobius coordinates. AFAIR I don't think it was interesting though, as it doesn't seem to have relevance to the real world.
Neo said:What is AFAIR? As far as I remember? (Sorry, I'm new here) Theoretically, it corresponds to reality fairly accurately. The shape of time based on relativity is undeniably quite similar to that of a Mobius strip. Do you disagree?

The faster something is moving, the "slower" time is moving for it.
