    In the search for new theories of space-time that better address how more fundamentally precise we can be with theories of space and time in the modern era, I began to wonder at length how to be scientific and impressive at that in being hypothetical with a new theory for time. I have seen many a debate rage in this forum, and get out of control at that, regarding the issue itself of time; what it is, what it is not. So I have stood back and become cautious.

    As I understand, space is fairly rigid in being 3-dimensional, and the only thing we could propose to change would be "time". So, the axiom for "time" would change, and not only that, our perception of time would change. So, any hypothesis would have to address both the idea of changing for instance "time" and then changing our perception of time. And on top of that, I would think that the way we run our calculations of space-time would change from a simple linear grid of equations to something far more complex. Is there anything I could be forgetting here, any more basic themes to consider? Remember, it is a hypothesis-proposal “starting point”. I am looking for an answer that knows how to offer a fair critical review of an idea that presents a case of HOW a change to the super-sub-axiom structure of space-time can be upheld. Or, as a failure to my attention, is the thought process of modern physics designed NOT to change the axioms of time, for a strict purpose of a policy of some description, and if so, "how", what is that policy, and "why"?

    That very well may be the crux of your problem.

    Time is well defined and understood and there is no reason whatsoever to change our perception of it as this would only serve to confuse.

    How are you doing, Streamsystems? Done some revision on your theory, or is it still unchanged? :wink:

    A comedian in our midst? Q, I thought you less of the comedian type. Moreover, I never thought the phsycis community was afraid of being confused. My question was relevant to asking "how" the physics community would seriously consider a revision of their understanding of "time".

    Kalster, in all of streamsystems drunken ramblings, not once did streamsystems present or raise the idea of HOW our perception to time would change. I thought you with your hawk eye vision in so unceremoniously having streamsystems dumped from the forum would have known that. It appears though, by your remarks, some people want to stir the pot at no end.

    Obviously, my question failed to stir the sought-for response. I was more hoping for, "when physicists review suggestions for changes to the way they decide themselves to be more fundamental in their approach to the basic features of space and time, the following is considered for the following reasons etc etc etc". It seems Q and Kalster are not of that train of thinking, and so their replies in this post cannot be considered appropriate. I would inform MODERATORS to take note of these people who appear to skylark at any opportunity. If anyone else has something insightful to add, other than Q or KALSTER, please feel free. Maybe someone could add some input on "how" our perception of time can change, namely, how would that manifest to the way we look at the physical world. It's a physics question, so keep it in that.

    I constructed Time from four axioms. See the "Personal Theories and Alternative Ideas" forum and look for: "Constructing Time from Four Axioms."

    ... And it's nonsense. Please don't resurrect dead threads to peddle your pseudoscience...

    Prove it wrong and nonsense. It shows that you don't understand it.

    Ah, "prove me wrong", the mantra of the crackpot... That's not how it works, you need evidence to convince people to take you seriously... I'm not holding my breath...

    No you didn't.
    See the "Personal Theories and Alternative Ideas" forum and look for: "Constructing Time from Four Axioms."
    You've given a reference therefore you do NOT need to post the entirety of your (incorrect) "construction" here.
    I've now moved that twice to the relevant thread: take the hint.
