Let’s start with these observations. First is the fact that the Earth spins. Add to that the speed at which the Earth orbits the Sun, the Sun orbits the Galaxy, and the Galaxy moves through the Universe. Now as I understand it, that adds up to a few million miles an hour. You get right down to it, we’re zipping right along.
Now consider the fact that the faster you go the closer to the speed of light you get, which means the greater the dilation. As I understand it, with our velocity there may well be locations in the Universe where things are actually older than us, and that the actual age of the Universe maybe 10, a 100, or even a 1,000 times older. In effect what we see as a 13+ billion year old structure may actually be a 13+ trillion year old one.
Now our speed through the Universe I’ll call our absolute velocity. At the moment we would appear to have a relatively decent positive absolute velocity. But what if we had a way to slow down? What if we could decrease our positive absolute velocity, or pav? As our pav slowed would the passage of time outside us slow down, so that one year in personal time became one year in real time?
What if we could stop our pav? That is, no movement in the absolute sense, not the relative sense we know today.
And what if we could achieve a negative absolute velocity, or nav? That is, instead of just changing our direction of movement, but go in the reverse of our current velocity. I’d expect time to run backwards, and the weaving of events over the forward course of time would unravel. That is to say, that things would be undone, which would likely include us.
I know, I’ll bet some of you are going, “Ack!”, but I get ideas like this a lot. It’s part of being smart and autistic. So what do you think?
