Koala, no. 17 isn't wrong, as you stated. But what you said about being close to the speed of light isn't wrong either. According to relativity, both would apply.

Also I find it quite funny how you tell Silverfalcon that there is no evidence for one of his points, then bring up a point that has no evidence itself.

time isn't a force. its accepted that its the 4th dimension of our universe, but I question that in my own head. I just have a hard time connecting the concept of time with spacial dimensions. I know they're related in some sense because one affects the other. But theres something else to it...

Silverfalcon

On your second point, There is No evidence whatsoever for that.

Read up on Vacuum fluctuations. It is beleived the Universe is one in which the Symetry of particles "broke".

Then what happens to those who observe and are not on adrenaline? Wouldn't time, for them remain the same? At least in Appearance?

If they see things as sped up, then the human who is on adenaline is incased in a time bubble, it would be the only way.

So, does time slow down and not notice, or is he more alert?

I'd go for the second one :-p

Gravity slows time
Time wasn't around forever and started at the big bang
Time may someday literally run out

Time is very interesting indeed...

Time certainly is confusing. I mean, when you have adrenaline, your eyes can take in more "shots" per second, which is why time can seem to be in slow-motion when you're in danger.
So I wonder... is real time in slow motion, but our eyes just don't notice it?

I find the whole concept of time - the science of it and the philosophy of it - impossible to get my head around.

Thinking about what time is is just incredibly frustrating.

LazyMe484: The only reason I am quoting from Wikipedia is because you'll accept it. If you knew what it is, or bothered researching it, you'd know better.

"The Planck time is the time a beam of light needs to travel 1 Planck length. According to quantum theory, 1 Planck time should be the smallest unit of time physics can reason about in a meaningful way."

Planck Lengh undergoes the same definition I gave for time, only with lengh.

Woohoo! I live in Buffalo, although I honestly never would have guessed we're one of the fastest paced. If the drivers around here are anything to be example, I'd imagine we were pretty slow!
