I'm going to take time out to talk to you all about what is the most likely correct theory of time. Today, we have made some amazing discoveries concerning time and I often feel, the public doesn't take enough notice. Some of the brightest scientists are arguing a totally non-Newtonian aspect of time, something which is good if time exists. The unsettled question at the moment, is whether time is a real artifact of the world; that's a more difficult question and you can get a better idea of why this question exists when you study General Relativity and how time features in the framework of that theory. I'll do this in periodic posts, because no doubt there will be lots to cover and certainly it is a popular subject. I'll underline the main problems I have seen today with some statements which involve a very classical view of time: One which which fleeting, linear and responsible for the order of things. Scientists no longer believe this is the case. Time is more about the geometry of space time rather than a directionality in space, or imaginary space. The future cone isn't some direct arrow you draw and point into our future, no such arrow of time exists. Nor is time linear in that sense. Consciousness and the experience of time has with it, a sense of direction, but this is a psychological arrow of time, this is not a cosmological one. We have mistaken the two for years and years, due to a mixture of bad press, bad understanding and bad science. This leads us to time being a totally subjective phenomena. We even have a biological reason we sense time, we have gene regulators inside our brains which regulates our fast and slow senses of time. If these ''boxes'' where not there, we would have absolutely no sense of time at all. So what does that say about time? Surely if time is something we normally wouldn't be able to sense without these regulators, would that not imply it isn't really something objective? I think so. Time is almost undeniably essential for consciousness and no doubt, this is why we have this perception. It is however completely subliminal with no physical indication it is real in any way in physics. There are no non-trivial time operators in physics, time isn't even an observable. The global description of time disappears completely from General Relativity yet remains in special relativity when observers are present; in other words, time is an invariant of the theory when observers are present.
