So this has been keeping me up, and racking on my brain lately and I'm wondering if there are any theories currently out there that points to what I'm seeing/understanding. Now this may or may not conflict with Relativity, it may encompass it, and I'm not sure what applications it may have if it were validated or understood mathematically, none the less its fascinating. So as far as I can tell, there's a fairly large general consensus on the big bang theory, placing a point and time to when the universe came into being (approx 13.8 billion yrs ago). I'll use this as a reference point to discuss my conundrum with there not being universal clock, but even if this was not the "start" I still think what I'm about to say holds up. So if we all can agree that there is a point in time 13.8 billion years ago, and you and I are in a room talking right now about what happened between "now" and then, would it be safe to say there was an infinite amount of moments/intervals that took place? If so would not all things in all places in all of "existence" (including god, or what ever overarching belief you may have) be happening over those same infinite amount of intervals/moments? If so, there seems like there is a constant of Universal Time. I would even say all reference points are including in this and no amount of anything (light speed or faster) would be no more or no less than those infinite amount of intervals/moments in Universal Time. Now one might say, well I don't believe the universe began at 13.8 billion years ago or I think existence was always around so you can't talk about a beginning, read on, otherwise I'd like to hear thoughts or other theories which point to this so I can look at what they have to say....... Now if you don't believe in the big bang, then I'd imagine you'd still believe in the passing of your subjective experience of time while talking to a friend. I'd imagine you could say that there was a moment before you two met to the point at which you did meet. If you can agree on that, then you have two points in which all of existence happened in a infinite amount of intervals/moments and included all reference points, speed of travel, and anything else you can think of. If this is so, I think it is safe to say all those things in existence happened along the same infinite amount of intervals/moments/time.
