is there any way to slow down time? LIFE IS GOING BY TOO FAST :'(
The asnwer is right under your noses; literally. Sientifically proven when you sneeze your brain works 100% full. When we sneeze the worlds around slows for a minimal 20 mins. We move fater so everything around seems normal, when to other people we move fast. THEY MOVE MUCH SLOWER! O 2: Light Speed Travel. If any craft moves at a long enough distance at light speed time would pysically stop,unnoticed because it stoped, as did us. if we move fast enought time around us slows down, when we come back from where ever in space we were we might come back only to have killed the dinos. Thats honestly my theory as to why Dinos's vanished. US! somthing that happed millions of years into the future: could result in a pile of garbage that happens to us today. or yesterday. I may confuse you but given that i have such a high brain function its hurts, you may understand what I am talking about when you become me. Which is possible. but improbable.What happened if you woke up one moring with the worst headache of your life. I HAVE ONE EVERY DAY!!!
Excerpt from a book commenting on Time and Speed of Light, " I’ll begin with part of Einstein’s “Theory of Relativity.” One of the things this theory states is that “time” is relative to ones motion and also to the amount of gravity exerted on one. This is the theory everyone has heard. It says that the faster you travel, the more time slows for the traveler. This is true but only a part of the story. What does this mean? Let me give you an example. This is slightly different but it represents a good example of two people seeing the same thing but with two different perspective to what their seeing. It was written by Steven Hawkings in his book “ A Briefer history of Time.” It is a good analogy of where you’re thinking has to go to understand what I’ll be talking about in a few paragraphs so I’ll use it again and thank the original writer of it." So 13thclam, you nailed it. Faster you go the slower time passes for you
Go read up on the Theory of Relativity. The faster you go the more time is slowed. The question was just that "how do I slow down time..." well traveling at near speed of light will do just that.
And as to your argument "the rest of the universe will appear to be flashing by at high speed..." and it wouldn't appear that way if you sent the rest of the universe away at near speed of light as suggested in your first argument?
You nailed it... the question was how do I slow down time... the only way that can be done in our current knowledge is for the person who wants time to slow-travel at near light speed.
IS THERE ANY WAY TO SLOW DOWN TIME? is a question. Life is going by too fast. Is a statement. And as I read the title box above this "answer box" It says "Answer this Question: "Is there a way to slow down time?"
So I did go back and re-read the question as you suggested. The answer to the QUESTION is travel at near light speed is the only way to slow down time.
Now as I suggested you might go read the Theory of Relativity.
seao2florida: I'd suggest you instead re-read the question: "is there any way to slow down time? LIFE IS GOING BY TOO FAST :'(". Accelerating to near the speed of light wouldn't cause life to go by any slower, it'd cause it to go by _faster_. Time slows for the traveller, whereas what the questioner was asking about was slowing time for _Everyone_else_.
I think the problem here is one of definitions. When you're travelling near the speed of light, the rest of the universe will appear to be flashing by at high speed - I would call that time passing faster. Since the original question is "how do I slow down time", this wouldn't be the desired outcome.
seao2florida: Perhaps you can explain, then, how travelling near the speed of light will "stop everything going by so fast".
Slowing down _himself_ is not what the asker wanted to know. They were speculating about slowing down _everyone_else_.
the13thclam: Actually, no, time will pass faster. A second for you will be many seconds to a stationary observer. To achieve the reverse, you'd need to accelerate the whole rest of the universe to near the speed of light!
And for some reason it gets worse as you get older. LOL. Weeks pass by like days. When I was a kid, the wait for Christmas seemed like years... Now, yikes. I feel like I just took my tree down and that was 10 months ago.
I wish that was real or else I would want that right now sooo bad because there has been so many things going on in life right now. but I agree just enjoy life whil you have it
To slow down time for yourself, very simple. Accelerate to just below the speed of light and time will pass slower for you than the rest of the universe.
ha ha I wish , it seems like yesterday I packed away the halloween decorations but know weer buying them again. enjoy life as much as possible ; p lol
ya lol, and it's so hard to do homework because of all the distractions :(
I know what you mean pink, I'm almost a quarter way through school year!
technology makes everything go by faster, 1 second it's 1 pm, the next it's dinner :(
maybe I should be Amish! :D lol
hahah I aqree with dramaqueen.
it's like you want to just dieee.
but then thinking that was just plain stupid :/
Ugh! I know!
It's crazy - same way with me. It seems like time flies like no other when I'm on my computer.
umm I dont think so. unless you can create a machine to slow time then no theres not
it's hard to enjoy life when you have as much homework and work as I do :[
ok guys so I walk for a min then I ran and it didnt feel any slower
Just enjoy life to the fullest and don't waste time.
