hi all. im new, and am bursting with questions about everything. ive always been interested in quantum physics, however, have never had enough knowledge to do anything about it. But im in high school! and after getting bored in our energy and machines physics course, i decided to do some heavy researching on quantum physics. Especially the area revolved around 'time'. Ok, so ive done the research and get alot of it... but some of the fundamentals i still cant get my head around, such as, IS time a constant..? i mean.. time can be discribed as a 'line' - and a line can be discribed as a sequence of dots... is the number of 'dots' finite? or in a different sense, 'infinite' with gaps in between the dots. where each dot holds all 'present spacial information' (i am talking on a quantum level here) Also, would it be correct to say that as ones speed increases - density increases. And therefore, IFF ones spatial speed reaches lightspeed (c) ones density would become infinite, therefore altering the space-time continuum to such an extent that the result would be time flow slowing to 0. If this is true.. why doesnt 'light' itself have no time? is it becasue light is a form of EM enery and has no mass? or does energy have mass also? (im new.. remember)... Next question revolves around particles and anti-matter. here is a table It basically says anti-matter cannot exist without time. for, anti-matter is simply matter, however, going 'backward' in time? yes? In addition to this, apparantly anti-particles have a charge. can some kind person please explain this 'charge' idea to me. Is it related the number of spatial dimensions that are absent in a void? And continuing further from this, how are quarks related to atoms? And finally.... did the universe have to be 'created'? i always thaught 'creation' was a function of man, could it be true that the universe and everything has simply always existed and always will. for example, humans build a chair, and say they have 'created' it. Could the universe on othe other hand have just 'been', i.e. all the dimensions were simply 'infinite', however, by definition, something infinite needs a start? so could perhaps in the case of this theory i have, could it bend the rules of math? As you can see.. my knowledge is fairly small - as i have just started research. I work with a friend every tuesday after school on this subject, i find it works really well critiquing other people theories, and it allows my mind to expand. I really hope you super dooper smart people can help out with a few of my simple questions. otherwise i have to ask my evil physics teacher (and i think he just makes stuff up). Keep in mind generalized replies are wanted. Thanks in advance. And i hope i have a good future here at physicsforums.com!!! rok on!
