    The Chromnesia (from Greek khronos: time and mnesis: memory)
    is the faculty to know time, that is, the magnitude of duration.
    We know that one hour is greater than 30 minutes. We know too
    that everything have a beginning and an end in time.

    Everything has a beginning and an end, hm?

    Where is the beginning, or the end, of an lemniscate?

    Only because WE define it to be so
    It is NOT inherently so as a fundamental aspect of reality

    I'm talking about time, not space.

    I suggest you to develop your chromnesia for what
    you synchronize with time. The Philochrony can help you.

    Does it, then? Can you point out the "beginning" or the "end"? What if the universe is, in fact, cyclical?

    Is it possible to troll oneself?

    I mean that everything has a finite existence.
    The stars and the planets will die.
    Living beings are born and die.

    Oh that is so very deep and profound

    A insight like that will go down in history and be quoted for hundreds of years

    It is indeed a privilege to be present at this moment in history when the heavens open to the outpouring of such wisdom

    Us mortals are truly blessed to have born witness to the dawning of a new age

    I look forward to the book

    May I humbly suggest a title

    How to Sprout the Bleeding Obvious

    The Nobel prize for crapola already has a winner

    I can go in peace to my maker and proudly proclaime my chromnesia is synchronized with time thanks to the workings of philochrony

    You may have created the Universe god but that pales into insignificance when philochrony came into being and gave the Universe meaning

    Be still my beating heart and let me contemplate this moment with due reverence

    OK that's enough

    Coffee time

    Everything has a finite existence? Does dark matter? Or do you just mean everything we can currently perceive has a beginning and end as far as our limited senses can ascertain?

    The concept of eternity leaves me with a feeling of religion.
    The matter or God?

    Ignore it
    Come away from the light
    Come back to reality

    3rd postulate of Philochrony:

    The speed doesn't affect the length.
    The speed affects the perception of the relative observer.

    Have they ever put a ruler on a ship traveling to high speed?

    Yes.

    What happened?
    Did the ruler change or didn't?
    Where can I find information about the experiment?

    We haven't done that particular experiment. We cannot yet accelerate objects larger than atoms to such velocities.

    The RHIC accelerator collides heavy nuclei (such as lead), and they do have a non-zero radius. When they calculate the dynamics of the collision, they find it matches the results expected if the nuclei are Lorentz contracted into disks.

    Muon particles entering the atmo at relativistic velocities travel farther than they should if we don't account for relativistic effects. The fact that they travel farther than they should can be interpreted either as time dilation (they live longer) or as length contraction (the Earth's atmo, and indeed the Earth itself, is flattened to a disk, making for a shorter distance to travel). These two interpretations are equivalent.

    Google 'experimental confirmation of relativistic length contraction'.

    Thanks DaveC.

    But I think the muon slows down its frequency. There isn't time dilation.
    The time dilation is stay in the past.

    Well there you have it Dave - Axeperia clearly knows what he is talking about.

    You cannot just "think" things off the top of your head and expect anyone to take you the least bit seriously.
    You've torpedoed your credibility on anything science-related.

    Which is why this thread is in the fantasy section.
