Time Dilation
By: Thomas Lee Abshier, ND

Time Dilation has likewise fallen under the category of relativistic phenomena.  To illuminate the phenomena, we shall examine the effect of relativistic speed on people the people and objects traveling on this near-lightspeed spaceship.  The rocket ship inhabitants would not realize that they were in fact on a platform traveling at a great rate.  They would have no indication that the particles constituting their bodies had accumulated a significant magnetic field associated with their high momentum.  But, as the percentage of lightspeed becomes larger, their metabolic and nervous processes will slow down progressively (compared to the rate of metabolism of those who stayed home in the relatively low velocity rest frame of Earth).  

o The reduction in the rate of chemical reactions is due to the change in the speed of light.  Clocks would likewise slow down because of the same phenomena.  All lightspeed communication phenomena through space are altered by the change in the polarization of space.  And, since space, and its transmission of waves and particles mediates all phenomena, the rate of that transmission and movement will affect all physical processes accordingly.  

o Using this paradigm, we may hereby predict the underlying mechanism mediating the slowing of physical processes, which corresponds to our understanding of time.  Thus we can understand how the atomic clock slows during its relatively high velocity orbit in space.  Our theory is confirmed as the clock shows the predicted amount of slowing on its return.

o Please note, that actual time has not slowed, moment follows moment inexorably on a universal level.  The physical representations of time have changed because the number of moments has increased to negotiate these  periodic and predictably regular processes.  Our timepieces are our physical metaphors that we use as surrogate indicators to inform us of the number of the more ephemeral “moments” we have passed.
