    That is something for the Mother Universe to hold secret and for us to.... well probably.... never find out. Questions like that are ones that you should always ponder about but never ponder about getting the answer for it will probably never happen.

    Well maybe it doesn't exist , it is just some kind of energy that could form forces as it is manipulating by the effect of other things that we call matter...Just kidding. I think thats the only way to create a relation between things or answers to our questions.
    Without it we couldn't leave in peace in terms of going crazy. Because of it the societies can develop a system that just leads them to an ordered life. I dont know

    I think it is an efect that will end when matter doesnt exist anymore...

    Does time flow if there are no humans there to measure it? ...hmmm...

    Can information flow between two time periods? May be...

    Of course. If it didn't then the universe would only be a couple of million years old instead of the 12-15 billion.

    Hi!

    Maybe we can just ask 'WHAT IS TIME?' first before talking about what it is made of!

    hmmm

    hey All

    So What you are saying is no-one has a clue?

    Hey , Im not having a go at anyone... I dont know either,
    but I do know its not made of cheese ADAM you funny bugger!

    I guess its one of those questions like...

    "How do women talk on a mobile phone, apply make up and drive a car all at once"...

    lol

    cheers

    How about when we view distant stars? We are seeing them in the past, so the information is traversing two time periods. The star as it was and our present.

    True. We only notice the effect.

    I agree. This would be the thermodynamic arrow of time, where systems go from a more ordered state to a less ordered state. Like a hot cup of coffee getting colder. If there is no matter in the universe then thermodynamics has no place to work.

    Have a lookie here and then come back here and explain it to the rest of us

    Timing is everything

    Time is considered a dimension. If we use definitions that dimensions are a number of co-ordinates you can use to uniquely describe a position, then we live in a 4 dimensional space because we can define our position in 3 spatial co-ordinates and 1 time co-ordinate.

    However, time is treated differently than the spatial dimensions. Distortions in the three spatial dimensions, and in mass and energy, can be seen undistorted when bringing two frames of reference to the same state of motion, but time, once distorted, does not come back to its initial state.

    Information on the passage of time is delayed because light travels at a finite speed thereby causing the delay. You can look up, down, right, left, forward and backward, but you can only look to the past. What is *really* happening is irrelevant, because we can never detect it, and it will never affect us in any other way than what it does.

    The time would run slower neara massive body.Because there is a relation between energy of light and its frequency.As it travel to a strong gravitational field, it will lose energy, thus lowering its frequency.

    Is this mean that time can be manipulated or that it will try to fit in the enviroment in which it is?

    Hi!

    This dimension is different as we can only travel through it in one direction, when we pass one point, we cannot get back to that point again in the time axis.

    Time flow differently in different environment!

    hmmm

    How does time react around a black hole?
    I think i read that a black hole has a major effect on time by speeding it up, is this correct?

    cheers

    Hi!

    Instead of speeding up, time slows down near a black hole. Time slows down in a gravitational field, as the black hole has very strong gravitational field. So near a blach hole, time is slowed down to a great extent.

    I THOUGHT THAT TIME RAN SLOWER INSIDE A BLACK HOLE BECAUSE OF THE STRONG GRAVITATIONAL FIELDS.

    TIME CAN CHANGE IF YOU ARE HANGING OUT IN STRONG GRAVITY , IT DOESNT RUN FASTER IT WILL RUN SLOWER. EINSTEIN PROVED THAT TIME CAN TWIST...

    SOMEBODY?
