    Just a thought: we live on the surface area of this planet, generally speaking, and the moment we experience, moment to moment, it is the same "moment" everywhere on the surface of this planet.

    My question is: "how can time be a line"?

    Would it not be more logical to suggest time is a surface area, and thus a DUAL concept.

    For instance, if time were a "squared" concept, a surface area, we could suggest, propose if not, a theory about the passage of a surface area, say the surface area of a sphere, as the movement front of a surface area itself of time, and that SPACE is in fact the interfacing entity of the momvemt of a squared relationship of time.

    (remember, this was just a thought, no research has obviously been done into this, so give it some thought, ya?)

    Time isn't the same everywhere on Earth. It's slightly different between the tops of the mountains, sea level and the bottoms of the oceans.

    Yes I know.

    On a theoretical flat surface of earth, it would be the same everywhere.

    But, given the speed of light, time is different on different altitudes, given the spherical propagation away from the flat plane reference, both outwards to the mountains and inwards to the depths.

    It makes sense though, doesn't it, still, even given your question, that time is better suited as a "squared" concept, a surface area, as opposed to a "line"?




    What surprises me about physics, or should I say theoretical physicists, is that they have not considered, or should I say, "do not want to consider", the idea of time being a surface area, most simply as a spherical construct. But I guess the current axioms of space and time should be squeexed for all they are worth (gets a little boring, though).

    "Time is what a clock measures." I forgot who said that though.

    ......as space is what a ruler measures.


    Please get to your point.
