What time is it?

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

We're GONNA talk about time. Most states in the United States south time changes spring forward set clocks forward in the spring fall back set clocks EXPEC then you have time zones across the United States and around the world fly far enough and you'll lose a day or gain a day depending upon which way you're going when you perform perform the same activities of over and over the day seemed to fly by or drag depending on the activities for your day with new activities for the day may fly even faster faster. Depends upon who you talk to. There was a time in my life when I worked with people. WOM One and with some clients I would look up at the clock and watch a hand and the clock move from one block bark to another would seem like ours would pass and I look at the clock again only to see that it had just been a minute. Ah Yes perception. But what about time. Slips time warms is time travel possible to Great Luminaries Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking gave us. It's a simple answer. Yes but the conversation on time travel is filled with what is exactly. What did Einstein have to say about time travel? I'm Stein's theory of special relativity says that time slows down or speeds up depending upon. How fast you move relative to something else? Approaching the speed of light person inside a spaceship would age much slower than his twin at home. Also under Einstein's theory of general relativity. Nobody gravity can bend time picture. Four dimensional fabric called space time when anything that has mass sits on that piece of fabric it causes a dimple or bending of space time the bending of space time causes objects to move on a curved path and that curvature of space is what we know as gravity both the general and special relativity theories have been proven with GPS satellite techniques. That has very very accurate timepieces on board the effects of gravity as well as the satellites increased speed from Earth relative to observers on the ground make the unadjusted clocks gained. Thirty eight microseconds today. Who Thirty Eight microseconds does sound like much of a time change to me? Let's let's continue here engineers make calibrations to account for the difference in a sense. This effect called time. dilation means astronauts nonce were time travellers as return to earth very very slightly younger than there are identical twin the remains on the planet. What did Stephen Hawkins' I have to say? About time. Travel Hawking famously held a party for time travellers but did not send out the patients until after the party. No one showed for the festivities but the scientists right that there is still hope the traveling back in time could be possible according to the laws of the universe he pigs is this notion on the premise of something called m theory that suggests the universe may contain seven hidden dimensions in addition into the familiar four dimensions of space time rapid space travel and travel back in time can't be ruled out. According to our present understanding he writes. This is hawking. Science fiction fans need not lose heart. There's hope in theory you have to look hockey's M theory it's a little too long and complex likes for this podcast. There's a lesser known theory about time travel. Though is commonly referred to as the step theory it takes into account that theories expressed grasp both hawking and Einstein. They're multiple dimensions. The step theory states that although there are multiple dimensions they are parallel. Exactly to who are on that some run ahead of ours and some behind and there are umbilical warburton holes or the dimensions overlap further. That many of us unknowingly walked through these openings periodically the Dacia Fu is an example one. Conventional Science Science can't explain that is stepping into a dimension that is slightly ahead of your own. You know the feeling that you've been to displace before or met this person before or even particular activity before but that most of us shake off the feeling as being just a little strange whatever theory you embrace. It's is fairly realistic to state that in the next not too distant future we maybe stepping forward or backward and Thomas easily stepping onto an escalator skeptical. It wasn't that long ago that the concept of traveling in space let alone landing on the moon was stuff of fiction and the greatest scientific minds signs of that era declared the idea ridiculous impossibility. That's sad a little less than fifteen hours ago. I stepped into the future where I sit now.
