- - I had typed a long response for the captured moons comment you made and something very unusual happened. Firefox locked up and I lost everything because I had to restart FF. I'll try to re-write it between tonight and tomorrow. Maybe I'll type it up in Notepad first so I can save my progress.Apr 20, 2015
- Yeah, I know the feeling. Happened to me a couple of times in blogger that I pressed ctrl+z one too many times, auto save kicked in and POOF ! Entire, ready-to-publish post gone forever. Nowadays I tend to write long G+ posts in notepad or as a draft email first.Apr 21, 2015
- We can see the universe is not expanded uniformly everywhere. That is the main point. Expanded space also includes expanded time. We can observe time passing at a slower rate relative to us. The spiral arms lead instead of follow. I am going to reread what you said because I don't have time right now.Apr 21, 2015
- (Don't feel obligated to respond.) The curvature of a flat square is not the same on the near side as the far side especially if the square is 186,000 miles long. I remember being told that in like grade school. It is this curvature or expansion of space that GPS has to take into account (as well as speed) relative to us. Time expands and contracts along with space. You say it is negligible but it happens on a more extreme level where stars seem to be crammed together, relative to us.
There is a lot of *less expanded space* in and near a black hole and there are a lot of black holes. What if you lived near a black hole? Time would be going by much slower. The point is that all of space expanded and that time expands when space expands so this notion of a fraction of a second of the initial expansion is ludicrous, considering that time expands along with space so it is not the same standard of measure of time. You can't separate time from space because it is part of the same expanded fabrication.
I know what you are saying about the clocks. It is just that you are looking at clocks that are in about the same measure of expansion. Your supernovae example of observed expansion proves the universe expanded and that includes the expansion of time so you can't use expanded time as a valid measure of historical time because of the fact that it was no time until time expanded. The fact that we see instantaneous light take time to arrive also proves that we exist in a fabrication of expanded time and expanded space. Eternity and infinity are outside of the fabrication of time and space.
The Maker of the programmable elements of time space programmed inside of us is not limited by His fabrication of limited time or limited space that he made.Apr 27, 2015
- Just to clarify something :
"The curvature of a flat square is not the same on the near side"
I was intending this to be purely hypothetical. Forget the real Universe for a moment and imagine that there is perfectly flat space. I am saying that a perfectly flat square can expand into another perfectly flat square without curving. Therefore expansion is not the same as curvature, in principle.
I'll get back to you on the rest later.Apr 27, 2015
- 186,000 miles can't expand without the second of time expanding. That is curvature. Is there something I am not seeing?Apr 27, 2015
