hi,so i posted a thought experiment on other fourms and it seems everyone is misunderstanding the big picture of the experiment.i would like to verify that i really understand relativity and time dilation.i will explain a thought experiment in order to exsplain my understanding of relativity in a simple way. now, imagine there two people floating in space,one person is next to the sun and he is so huge that the sun and earth are the size of marbles compared to him,the second person is floating above earth, and he is the size of a normal human.now imagine that the huge person put his hand above the sun and swung it towards the earth, now, from the large persons perspective, how long would his hand seem to take to reach earth?about the same amount of time it takes to slap someone in the face right? now imagine this happening from the normal sized humans perspective, how long would it seem for the huge hand to reach the earth? i belive that, from the normal sized human perspective, the large hand would be moving slowly and take hours to reach earth since nothing can travel faster then light (the light from the sun takes about 8 mins to reach the earth) and i belive, (from the large persons perspective) that his hand only took a split second to reach earth, so this means that the normal sized human experinced hours of time passing before the hand reached earth, and that the large person only experinced a single second or less before his hand reached earth. its as if time and space litterally changes itself based on ones perspective in order to keep the speed of light a constant speed.
