  1. you are the one who said ''pmb and aethelwulf''. Start admitting when you are wrong before it looks like you are blatantly lying.
  2. Oh Juan... do you really wanna do this... ... as you wish. Hold on. ''Local time does not have to be confused with global time. Physicists use different symbols when both are to met in the same equation.'' Who says it is? I am going through over several different concepts of time, I explained this from the very beginning. Is this not you reading again? ''Maxwell equations are not Galilean relativistic equations.'' I never said that. I said it started off with Galilean relativistic equations... am I suprised to say, you have read me backwards? Maybe this is your problem you generally read things backwards maybe? ''Time was never a "numerical parameter" in Newtonian theory.'' Yes it was. Time was always a numerical parameter.. It still is today with some theories. ''Special relativity does not shuffle space and time but maintain both physically different. Neither it says that spacetime is 'timeless'.'' General Relativity does. When have you ever heard of diffeomorphism invariance within the context of special relativity? And yes, special relativity does not say the universe is timeless. I can't help but feel you are trolling, I have already explained in my OP that the GR EFE equations when quantized lead to the WDW equation .you KNOW this, we have explained this many times now. ''A metric is not a space. Neither time is "one imaginary space dimension". The trick to use "iT" instead "t" was an earlier trick to made that some formulae look more symmetrical in a 4D formalism. It is unneeded and pretty abandoned today in classical relativity.'' I said, the Minkowski metric is a four dimensional spacetime. What is your problem with this statement exactly? ''Quantum field theory is build over a quantum Minkowski spacetime.'' I don't see your point. All I said was that time is not fundamental in a quantum field argument. This is true in the context of high energy physics and the beginning of big bang - the region we hope to unify physics. ''The timeline of the cosmological evolution of universe predicted by relativity has been tested in the radiation era.'' There is no timeline, not in the sense of moving clocks. Well done, you have managed to show me you understand nothing of what I am saying, not that I am really all that surprised. ''Spacetime events do not take place in time but in spacetime.'' Absolute utter jibberish. ''You have invented this quote. He never said what you put within "". Just because you haven't seen it, I make it up yes? http://www.quotesdaddy.com/quote/1184698/albert-einstein/the-distinction-between-past-present-and-future-is Your logic doesn't surprise me. ''General relativity contains true time evolution and this fact is emphasized in the 3+1 formalism designed to deal with dynamical situations.'' Wrong http://fqxi.org/data/essay-contest-files/Markopoulou_SpaceDNE.pdf Read the abstract. ''The term "arrow of time" used in physics has a radically different meaning than you pretend. It of course does not mean that time looks as an arrow.'' Actually, the definition is some direction in time. There is no such direction since time geometrical. ''When the field equations are properly quantized we obtain something similar to what string theory obtains'' You just like to sound smart I think. String theory obtains practically anything it wishes. It would, I hope, obtain the same quantization rules as Einsteins equations, or it would be bunk as a mathematical theory. ''The analogy with the Schrodinger equation is only based in visual analogies because people uses symbols that other people uses. is not a wavefunction, not even close. The classical limit does not give general relativity. And Everett Many Worlds is nonsense, as has been shown.'' Of course it is a wave function. This is why many worlds was created. A generic wave function ahs a infinite amount of possible solutions. However the wave function can have at least one minimum and may have several maxima or minima. This is what a parallel universe is, a complicated potential with many solutions to your wave function. If there are people treating it not as a wave function, then it surely isn't parallel universe theory. ''The no conservation of energy in GR has nothing to do with cosmological expansion.'' That's my theory. I made that up. It's my pet belief of a possible theory. So well done. I am not impressed one bit. Oh and Juan, if you do reply to this, and I don't reply. Keep in mind that I have actually asked for the mods to disable my account here. Ok?
  3. ... concerning suggestions comments and support, isn't it also open to feedback?
  4. Thought I would explain why I behaved so... frivolously a week ago. I intentionally did it. I was sick that people could get away with some of the most foul comments and so I wondered how long it would be before I got a ban if I dished out some foul comments myself. Did it work? Yes it did. I even served my time. But what gets me is that the culprits before me never got a ban, only polite warnings. Anyway. I don't think I will be spending as much time here after today, something I decided during my little break. Which I am sure, will make some of you all the great deal happier.
  5. I second this... not once have I ever said a particle ''is just a wave''. I actually said a particle is both a wave and a particle, I even gave a demonstration of this saying that a particle hits the detector screen as a dot, proving it was a particle... I am getting really sick of Juan.
  6. No, to think a past exists which flows into the future is completely wrong, within the context of relativity and the context of physics as well. Actually, relativity is on my side. Einstein is on my side. He was well aware that physics admitted that the past and future did not really exist, they were only stubborn illusions. I am absolutely darned sure the universe has an existence outside of any proverbial observer, but that's not the point. The point is that the experience of a past is completely subjective. I can sit here and remember an event which happened two minutes ago, for instance. However, I remember that event in the present, there is no special meaning physically that this event is still happening, which is my entire point. The past is not happening now, it did happen. That does not mean it can be viewed as a real ''physical thing''. The only physical significance the world has are things which happen now. Let me quote Lee Smolin, he is right ''All that is real is real in a moment, which is a succession of moments. Anything that is true is true of the present moment.'' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Smolin
  7. Here is something for you to think about, if I really did exist in the past, then I would see multiple frame of my existence receding from me as I move my arm. But I don't. I see one arm, and it is always attached to me and it is always associated to the here and now... the past is nothing but a memory and a figment of my imagination, or as Einstein said, a complete illusion. Everything is fixed in the present moment. Even events which are time dilated, are still fixed in the present moment. I just liked his post by accident lol
  8. The past is observable in what sense, what... because we measure light now reaching us? Light doesn't even travel in time according to relativity. In fact, let us consider relativity and worldlines. Wordlines are actually static in relativity. What does this tell you about the nature of any past or future? Einstein: ''for those who believe in physics know that the past and future are only stubbornly persistent illusions'' I mean, even outside of our most respected theorist and theory (Einstein and relativity), the past does not hold any significance physically. The past did happen. It happened in its own present moment or as you might call it, frame of time. But that is over now, there is nothing to it. Just because we sit here and now, in this present frame of existence does not give us any justification to ask the question ''Does the past exist''??? In fact, you can ask that question naively, but most of us actually get to the answer quite quickly with a little thought. Going back to your light example, these are ''sending signals'' from the beginning of time. These signals are not to be mistaken to mean ''the past is existing now'' just because we can observe the past in this manner. You obviously don't have a clue of what you are talking about. The past is long gone .Light travelling almost untainted will continue these messaged for as long as it takes, but they don't exactly travel through time as we comfortably sit in the present moment. We are not stationary observers either. Everything moves along in the present time.
  9. But do they exist ''now''? Surely even you, of all people are not going to contend they hold physical significance ''now''. Some of you I understand have no training in any idea's of physics, but what I am telling you is a basic fact or even, principle of experience. So, do things in the past exist? No they do not. The real question should be, do things in the past exist ''now''? Not, if they ''have'' existed... The past tense of the word is highly misused and abused by people here at this forum. They often come here proclaiming things like the past and future are real things, when in the context of physics, and even basic experience, they are not real and certainly don't exist now. You can even measure it in your own living room. Drop a ball from your hand. Tell me the state of that ball when it falls to floor. Does it have a past? No it doesn't. The reason is simple, any ''past'' state is a true illusion. Nothing exists ''in the past''. You can say however that when a ball falls on a floor, it once rested in your hand in a previous ''present state''. But neither the past or the experience of it having a past is a true physical state. It stands to reason. Now, just because our ''minds'' remember a state does not mean that it exists, no less, than reading about a mammoth that exists in your book which read about ''now''. Nothing exists outside the present moment, it's a matter of fact. The past, when the mammoth existed, did not happen in the past, it happened in the present. Think about it. The past doesn't exist now, no more than the future will exist now. Only the now exists because it is the ''now'' which is what we call the ''present moment''.
  10. You justify your post with explanations, and then I will correct you with my own justifications. Just a word of advice before you do... please understand the words you post, always happen in a present moment... nothing you have said is really existing in the past. Only your experience of it.
  11. Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of the matrix. You are the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden to sedulously avoid it, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led you, inexorably, here.
  12. It sounds like he's been influenced by the Aether Drag Hypothesis, which is of course, not supported at all. There is a special case mind you where the vacuum in the observable universe is expanding faster than light... which literally drags matter and light along with it. But I doubt that is what he is talking about.
  13. An estranged welcoming from someone who I thought disliked me.
  14. In fact... I'd argue there is no beginning of time. Not in your relativistic sense. In fact, i'd argue time was emergent... Or as I called it in my own independent research, induced, but both mean relatively the same thing. http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0601234
