    Since Einstein said time and space are relative to each other, i was wondering what time would look like to someone/something who has been shrunk to the size of an atom or even a quark. If it was possible to hold someone the size of an atom in your hand, would you and that person take the same amount of time to think the same thought?(relative to each other)

    Also there is the opposite side of the question. What if you could "balloon" a person up to the size of a planet or even a sun.
    There is also the fact that our brains have always been programmed to work while traveling and perceiving time at a set rate. Is the human brain capable of perceiving "time slowing down"

    As far as my limited understanding is concerned (and believe me, it is limited) it is impossible to witness one's own time frame "slowing down," since the term "slowing down" is relative in itself.

    The way time feels to you, in your inertial frame, will always be the same since your thought processes are governed by physical interactions between the molecules in your brain.

    Relative to other things an observer is able to witness something such as time dilation.

    So I imagine that if I was the size of a planet everything would seem perfectly normal to me, such as it feels now, in my own inertial frame. The people on Earth may appear to be darting around at unnatural speeds, etc, because of the time dilation caused by my own mass, but it would seem to me that they were running faster instead of me "running slower."

    Well, that's my feeble attempt at offering feeble speculation.

    Be gentle.

    yes one can observe one's own time frame yes but one cannot observe another's time frame.in other words i cant look in your frame and tell what is going on. that would be illusionary
