Is time linear?

The orbit of the earth is elliptical, and therefore, the season we call summer, which in the northern hemisphere takes place at aphelion (farthest from the sun), lasts longer than the season we call winter. In the northern hemisphere, winter (when we are tilted away from the sun) takes place at perihelion (nearest the sun), and is therefore shorter than summer. Like a ball rolling in a bowl, it moves faster when it is close to the center, and more slowly when it is far from the center.

However, any American school child will assure you that summer is the shortest season.

@neologist,
It's difficult to say because no one can decide that the time is linear or not.

@neologist,
No. Just the human perception of Time. Once we all realize that we are human beings and only LOVE matters. Things such as lighting fast space travel and other secrets of life will be revealed to us.

Time doesn't exist physically.

Time is just a measure.

This measure of time is obtained by the comparison of a regular motion against the motion or decay of other things.

Example, you compare the motion of earth rotating in reference to the Sun. The period of rotation is called a day.

You compare this regular motion against your motion driving in a car from New York to Florida with short stops and takes you a day of traveling.

The dilatation of time, flowing of time, and similar characteristics given to time are no more than fantasies invented by lunatics.

Time can't dilate because the motion of objects because time doesn't exist.

To verify what I state, just search for the detection of time, the method used, the person(s) involved in such a detection of a flowing of time, and you will find that nothing, zero, nada will demonstrate the physical existence of time.

The whole theory of relativity is a fake, a fraud and Einstein wasn't a genius but a retarded dude.

We need liberals turning down statues of Einstein because we can't have and honor images of stupid dudes.

@neologist,
This is an old discussion, and many of us have contributed our .02c worth. I couldn't find the original, so I've added the following. This one explains it a little differently, but it's the same idea. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2949168/Time-Earth-moves-SLOWER-space-Planet-s-orbit-sun-galaxy-gives-extra-second-WEEK.html

@neologist,
Time can measure two types of movement, linear and rotational. In linear movement time measures distance by change of location per certain time period. In rotational movement particles cycle back to the original location. Time then is measuring rations per certain time or cycles. The interesting thing about rotating particles is that is how we store information. Without rotation information storage is impossible. All atoms rotate and store information. Our understanding of time, is the result of our ability to understand the information being stored in rotating objects, and/or our ability to observe rotating objects (atoms) moving through space in linear movement over a period of time. We have this ability because we are constructed of rotating particles that trap the information in our bodies long enough so our bodies can observe information for a period time and thus sense it. Relativity is the math that explains how atoms which are rotating objects move through the Higgs Field (which is constructed of rotating virtual particles) exchange momentum between real and virtual particles. We can sense rotation and distance only sequentially, thus time is linear. But when matter exchanges energy, and causes movement of the virtual particles of the Higgs field a warping the space time continuum is produced. This warping is exhibited differently to different observers according to their location and speed, because there speed and relative location are warping the continuum simultaneously and differently than the particle being observed, and any other observer.

@brianjakub,
When an object accelerates, the acceleration affects the body, not so the measure of time.

Like you eat a lot and your body increases its volume. Eating a lot will affect your body, not so the measure called "volume".

What the idiot of Einstein thought, was that speed will aftect the measure of time and that the bodies won't be affected at the point of neither "ffeling" any changes.

No doubt that the stupidity of Einstein is obvious when we see how much the astronauts are affected in outer space.

Even the atomic clocks malfunction when are sent to outer space. Atomic clocks work by the principle of having the atom of Caesium with a fixed vibration, a receptor will count the vibrations and will set a "tic" after a certain number of vibrations.

When the atomic clock is exposed to a different gravity and speed, other than the one it has been calibrated, it will start to malfunction.

This is to say, gravity and speed will affect the body, not so the measure of time.

When is about the human body, it is just to get use to a certain routine, when the body adapts to certain duties, and this won't mean any memorizing inside the atoms and crap like that.

Einstein was a poor idiot, no doubt about it.

Physics is very simple to understand, but some lunatics who believe that time exists physically, that there are other universes, etc, these dudes confuse themselves and confuse others with pure pseudo science.

Inventions like the God's particle, theory of strings, and sh*t like that, are laughable because are not scientific at all but pure fantasies.

Again, science is based in facts, and in your message above you have said a lot of imagination but not a single fact.

@cameronleon,
Higgs field, dark matter, dark energy and the Higgs boson, are all imagined fields and particles to explain factual observations we have obtained from particle accelerators, and the movement of galaxies. These hypothetical imagined fields and particles might explain what physically causes the strong nuclear force and gravity to exist so that we can measure them. Fortunately we can detect atoms of gas and can tell the change in density of the atmosphere causes wind. We are finally hypothesizing something similar to a change in density of the atmosphere causing wind by hypothesizing gravity is a change in the density of the space time continuum. See Entropic Gravity.
You can say time doesn't exist physically but, does that make sense when you can say clocks physically exist, and they do physically measure time. Maybe we should say clocks and time give a physical representation to something that isn't physical, in the same way a word gives a physical representation to something that isn't physical like an idea about that word.
