    Just wondering
    Motion and time are they the same, if you could stop motion totally every where, would this stop time.
    As light is a motion,is this the boundary of time.

    Motion and time are not the same. Motion implies movement distance. Time does not.

    Even if I'd cool down everything to 0 Kelvin (this is impossible, but what if)
    Then all atoms would stand still.
    Yet, they'd still show time, Decay.


    In the information age ignorance is a choice.

    Since space contracts completely at the speed of light, it appears time has to contract with it. I tend to agree with this, but understand it more in terms of speed,And is light a motion? What exactly is taking place? when we see the appearence of light moving. We have light in our time space Universe, yet it is not subjected to it .so perhaps it is difficult to really understand something which excists outside of our peremiters: I am going to consider this word 'motion' in relation to light, but perhaps it is only realative in space time content,' this motion ', Is it realative to light itself? Ive enjoyed someone else considering light as the edge-all. I often think Einstien knew this, because when I wondered enough it was his equations that lent a foundation to my otherwise lost wanderings.

    Almost, but not quite (the standing still part, that is). Heisenberg's uncertainty principle implies that, even at 0 kelvin, there has to be some "jitter," a consequence of zero point energy.

    a zero point energy means motion persist.uncertainty showed that we cannot calculate both position and momentum with accuracy.in terms of this thread i could say;we cannot calulate with certainty the distance attained even at zero motion(0kelvin)position....and its velocity with certainty as well.how much time that elapses for a person depends on how he travel through time,especially near the speed of light and a strong gravitational pull like that of a black hole--albert einstein.
