Time as an energy field

( misc andoriginals andscience )

I was just falling asleep when I had this idea. What if time is an energy field that we feel passing through our fourth dimensional bodies? And this energy field is a ripple from an explosion or expansion from one point in fourth dimensional space? Physicists have argued that space and time are connected, and […]

A Quick Note on Time Travel and Universal Coordinates

( bad ideas andMath andmisc andscience )

Edit: This comic posted from Max below shows the same idea: Science Fiction constantly imagines scenarios where a character time-travels on earth using a time machine.

The Sun is Down

( misc andscience )

(not a real picture) I had the nastiest sense of vertigo and perspective the other day. Anyone afraid of heights? I for one am not a big fan of falling off a 40 story building. What’s holding us to the earth? Gravity, right? Well the sun’s force of gravity is much much stronger. So shouldn’t […]
