    I saw some scientific show some time ago talking about time decay, could anyone please explain me this and the levels of time decay??

    thanks,
    tony xD

    Can you be more specific? Physics is not my area and I am only familiar of time decay in terms of the rate of decay of radioactive isotopes. Was it realted to that?

    I dun quite recall what was said there, but It said that there are like 5 stages of time decay and the final stage is the bigbang drawback.

    I`d like someone to explain me each stage if some one can... please?

    I think you may be reffering to the stages of the universe's theoretical existence. I'm swiss cheese here but:

    1: Big Bang
    2: Separation (4 'forces')
    3: Expansion
    4: Reaccumilation
    5: Big Crunch.

    I think thats them :?

    Then what is decay of time?
    btw, what are the 2nd and the 4th stages?
    i mean, its pretty hard to guess just by its name xD

    Well separation is where all the four fundemental forces seaparated (Gravity, electromagnetism, Weak nuclear force, strong nuclear force (in order of weakest to strongest). Reaccumilation is the part (in theory) where the mass in the universe begins to come back closer to each other.

    The decay of time doesn't really make much sense. The term must be referring to some other process.

    It might be decay of a nucleus of a radioactive isotope.
    Well if it is that, than It decays with time in an exponential way.

    Indeed it doesnt :-D
    But if I recall right they said that time decays... over time
    The whole concept of time slowly 'mutates' until it is no more... thats what they said anyways...
    can anyone verify this??
    *note; it was a pretty respectful show on National Geograpic channel, with gr8 graphics n`all... so dun just go sayin` "your show sucks" if i`m wrong or missrepresteded it

    The official standard for time is the 'decay' of the cesium atoms.
    I do not know the science for this but can say that its isotopes can decay at a very accurate rate to be the standard for time.

    I did a search at the NG channel site and all I got was hits for "decay over time". Perhaps you just misunderstood.

    That? Or are you referring to time itself decaying? That can be a mind-boggle right there. Hypothetical or theoretical discussion anyone?

    That site deals with investment procedures rather than Science.

    Check out the Cesium element. There may be some data on its use as the current 'time' standard.

    "Time decay" I would presume is relevant to our fading ability to use a measuring stick, given of course how this forum this forum has often debated this subject of "time".

    Basically, this forum expresses quite greatly that time is a "measuring stick". The fading therefore of that thing, that measuring stick, is relevant to our ability to hold that stick.

    A "stick" that requires vigilance of time, if not "timing", well, thats quite the personal opinion, as already highlighted by this forum, no?

    We all agree, yes?
