    Shapiro time delay is caused by Refraction. Gravitational time dilation does not exist.

    Shapiro time delay is caused by refraction. Gravitational time dilation does not exist. And, just like Pound and Rebka, completely ignores refraction. Which makes his whole calculation wrong, because he does not understand basic physics, which require to take into consideration the index of...

    The topography of spacetime

    The topography of the universe over time and how it changes nothing but our perceptions. If dark matter changes states between a liquid and gaseous state then there would have been a time where almost all of the dark matter would have been in a liquid state due to the even temperature...

    Could This Be True?

    I have a question to ask people that know or understand a lot about the universe and mathematics. So the question is this: "If the reference point of light doesn't experience time due to time dilation at higher speeds, does this mean that time stops? If time would stop would this mean that...

    Question Does Time exist and if not what really is Time Dilation?

    A Quantum Mechanical Interpretation of the Consequences of Special Relativity Einstein's theory of Special Relativity Einstein's theory of Special Relativity predicts that for objects travelling at a significant fraction of the speed of light time dilates. Experimental observations are in...

    Preferred Reference Frames

    Just a beginner here, but I’ve been struggling with something with special relativity. Here’s my question. A travels away from B, who’s on Earth, at 90% SOL (or any arbitrarily high speed to make time dilation have a noticeable effect). B’s clock moves slower than A’s. But, if there are no...
