    i saw this guy on an interview even if he is wrong it makes you think (www.whataretimewaves.com)
    he says there is a force of push and pull that keeps a balance

    Gravity is most certainly not caused by 'time waves'. Time doesn't have a physical force of attraction upon all objects. Gravity is caused by mass, the larger the mass of an object, the greater the g (gravitational field strength [N/kg])... That's it put down simply...

    If gravity was caused by time waves, it would surely be uniform and the faster something travelled, the less gravity it would experience?

    I have heard that in space time goes faster than here on Earth, Becouse the gravity affects the clock, And non-gravitation in space time goes faster.

    In space time does NOT go faster than on earth, and it has nothing to do with gravity


    what you are undoubtably thinking of is Satalites, which move slower through time than us (approximately 6 seconds a year)

    this is caused by SPEED, we move at a very low speed, averaging maybe 2 miles an hour. Satalites move at hundreds of thousands of miles an hour. Gravity doesn't come into the equation at all

    Actually the satellites position within the earth's gravitational well, relative to us on the ground, accounts for the vast majority of the time difference that is observed. The speed is just a minor component.

    Relative speed is everything! Unless I'm mistaken general relativity says that gravity and acceleration are the same things. How can you say gravity has nothing to do with it but speed does? The warp in space-time is directly related to your relative speed/acceleration to another. Thus your current time is relative to how much of an influence gravity has on you as well as your current speed relative to another.

    To understand you have to understand that time goes at a rate with your relative motion to another.

    If you are in space and moving at the same general speed as the earth, time will move pretty much the same between you and the earth. If you are moving at a much greater speed then time will move slower for you. Its not a matter of space and earth, its a matter of speed/acceleration of the body in question.

    You are correct that earths gravity changes time because a gravitational field is warping space-time the same way it warps when you are constantly accelerating. Just like when you are in your car and you hit the gas and your body presses against the seat.

    Just think of the 3 spacial dimensions and the temporal one being on two separate planes.

    When you move faster you are moving out of time and into space (the 3 spacial dimensions)
    this is kinda why when you drive to the store it takes less time to get there. You are sliding out of time and more into space. You are traveling more space than you are time.

    When you move slower you move out of space and into time.
    When you walk to the store instead of driving you are more in time than in space. You are sliding out of space and into time. You travel more time than space.

    This is a very simple way to think about it.
    Just know that over the planet, the RELATIVE speed is the same for all of us so these differences are soooooooooo small nobody pays attention to them. Its even small when you deal with other planets in our solar system.

    It only really becomes apparent when you start to reach the speed of light.
    When you begin to reach the speed of light. As you are more in the spacial dimension, the more energy you need to push your extra mass from your shift into the spacial and out of the temporal dimension. This is why you need more and more energy to go faster and faster.

    Well i hope this helped and if anyone sees something wrong with my explanation please chime in!
    I'm really not to bright sometimes.
