Does Time Cause Gravity?

We know that gravity must cause clocks to run slow on the basis of logical consistency. And we know that gravity DOES cause clocks to run slow based on many brilliant experiments. But I never explained WHY or HOW gravity causes the flow of time to slow down. And I’m not going to explain it now - because in a sense it’s not true. Gravity does NOT warp the flow of time. It’s the other way around - the warping of time causes gravity.

    I feel like this series would be a very helpful one in saying "speed of causality" instead of "speed of light" as discussed previously on the channel. When you consider causality as constant, the shifting into and out of time makes things less confusing and easier to keep straight

      Both, actually. Gravitational time dilation is a real, well tested, phenomenon. You can get there from kinetic time dilation, though. Because _acceleration_ causes time dilation, then from the equivalence principle we can see that there must be time dilation in a gravitational field.

    Black holes make space. That's why it's expanding. The bigger the black hole the more space it creates. It's why galaxies are not all clumpt together. At the very beginning of the universe. The first and most massive black hole Was making space and space created a vacuum and pulled the singularity apart. No explosion. Pulled apart by the volicity of space expanding away from the singularity.

    I believe that gravity affects time but not the other way round. Spacetime is a framework to allow dynamic physics to play out. Without it the universe would be just a snapshot and not a dynamic video. So it can allow physics to change the universe but is itself just the backdrop to the scene, not the cause of action.

    When we observe the universe expanding and see objects moving away from each other in a way that indicates expansion is speeding up - do we take into account the time effect you discuss? I mean - if time is slower on Earth, would it be faster further away? Would it be much slower near black holes? Would our observations then be potentially wrong if we base it on our own time speed - as though we had a “time magnifying glass” that caused what we observe to be faster (or slower) than it is in reality? Thanks for the continual education! Ps how do you make your wonderful graphics?

    Is this concept compatible with Einstein’s equivalence principle? If I’m in a spaceship accelerating at 1g, eventually I will get closer and closer to c. And the closer to c I travel the more extreme the time dilation. *But* my perceived gravity remains at 1g no matter how near to c I get and how huge the time dilation. But at Earths surface I experience 1g with much less time dilation. Not equivalent surely?

    could special relativity create gravity? In other words maybe special relativity creates general relativity. For instance traveling away from something time appears to slow down because the thing you travel away from appears to slow down. When you travel towards something it appears to speed up. Therefore you could say that traveling towards something is faster than traveling away therefore you travel faster toward and slower away.

      Special Relativity showed mass and energy are same thing that measured in different units. and General Relativity showed that Energy/momentum/pressure affects on space-time itself. Special Relativity cannot creates gravity because it can only apply for inertial objects that obeys Newton law of motion. when you come up with accelerated motion or rotation motion you need to use General Relativity.

    In a weightless world, in order to make a video that gives example of gravity; you must capture artificial props behind or around the floating human. Many sections of snap shots. Those would become a video once combined. Within that video, the people seem to cling down. The coordinates of every being are just that: Coordinates. Now, we of the modern Earth, are aboard a prop, that looks like a planet, experiencing the same artificial gravity on a grand scale. Making a larger fake gravity movie. Time has many slides and timelessness has no props, to be recorded in. The props provide visibility, once you are scooped. Without the prop we are not slides of footage. When there was no visible Earth or universe; we were still as information and without form. Time still existed, as tiles of darkness. Darkness that goes on forever. Distance is causing time. Before a theater movie, the theater is dark, and it seems as though it would be forever before showtime. Preceding the movie has power. That is where we wonder of. Our wonder is a wait. The present awaits the beginning. Once the movie begins, the present awakens. Conscious time begins visibly. Unconscious time is invisibly there. Calculation is a creative point, that is at infinite. Infinity never begins or ends. That means that information is the only actual mesh and catch. Time for word, then symbol and then number are all a distance from each other: Making there 3 beginnings and at least 3 nothingnesses of nether time. Each observable dimension of the modern realm is going delta wave all day long.

    The fact that clocks change their tracking of true time might just be an anecdotal effect of the design of the clock itself, as it is subjected to various pressures, temperatures, and gravity? But I heard this is true of atomic clocks also, so it seems not to be the case... 2:59- So clocks tick slower that are closer to the Earth, and clocks farther from Earth tick faster, ok. So what if you go even deeper, down to the center of the earth- Does time stop? I think that even if a clock slowed to a stop as it approached tbe Eartb, time would not stop. A clock is just a measurement device, not the theoretical existence of time itself, right? Perhaps we need to make a distinction there. Or maybe in considering this issue further, the answer may come to me..gimme a minute... If this angular momentum is the generator of gravity, why do objects of greater mass have greater gravitic fields, irrespective of their size? (Size is related to distance) Mass has to be central to gavity theory, not just the distance from Earth, alone, right? -Elevator technician out of his element.

    for a causal relation to be there, doesn’t there need to be a perspective of linearity with a certain direction? for example: if we represent “if A then B” as A => B we need an observer to understand this causal relation to start from left to right. There needs to be a concept of left or right or beginning or end to phrase causal relations in the first place. Also, there needs to be a perspective that A can only cause B if both are viewed as separate entities. So again, in explaining reality in these kind of models, we need to assume or neglect the truth of some concept to construct the models themselves. Of course, i’m debating basic principles of logic, but why do we assume these basic principles to be true? To sum it up, if causality is merely a mental projection onto reality, without this projection, could time and gravity be one very same thing? The causal relation rather an integral relation, one reflecting the other without separations? I wonder if this kind of perspective could open up a new view a science, deeper insights and understanding.

      Then gravity would have to somehow conspire with all mechanisms of all clocks to always give exactly the same result. This works with atomic clocks, mechanical gear clocks, photon clocks, your cells. Anything that can accurately measure time is affected exactly the way the theory predicts. It seems more reasonable to assume that it is actually time, especially when it explains observations about gravitation so well.

    Okay, I'm no scientist. I've been thinking about this for a couple of weeks, so a couple of questions. 1) What if the earth stopped spinning? 2) Does time not exist on the moon? If time causes gravity, the moon seems to defy time. I thought time was an illusion anyway. It seems to me that spinning/rotation has an influence on gravitational pull.The moon doesn't spin, therefore light bodies float away (my theory). So, this (totally not based on science, only observation) suggests to me that earth's rotation affects gravity. Keeping us firmly planted similar to a centrifugal force.

      The earth's spin gives us sunrises/sets; hence we measure time with sun-dials. But time measured by clockwork or electronic devices would pass the same even if the spin (and sun-dials) stopped. The illusion of time passing at different rates results from our mental state: the watched kettle seems to take forever to boil, but if we're preoccupied time flies.

      1) the earth's rotation has nothing to do with this. 2) the moon is in orbit around the earth. It is attracted, but moving "sideways" fast enough that it doesn't actually get closer. The moon causes its own "time gradient", but it is weaker than earth's because the moon is less massive. That is why gravity is weaker on the moon. 3) Time is not an illusion. It is what we call the process of things happening in order. 4) the moon does spin, it just spins in such a way that it always shows the same side to earth as it orbits. But again, rotation has nothing to do with this. Centrifugal force would push us _away_ from earth. And it would mean that there was no gravity near the poles. (And in fact you are technically slightly less heavy at the equator than at the poles)

    Gravity isn't the curvature of space time but a bending of possible outcomes. Everything looks deterministic because everything we see has already happened, due to the limitations of the speed of light. The future is the wavy probabilistic universe we think of in quantum mechanics. When large areas are entangled they limit the amount of possible things that can happen next, which is why I say gravity curves probabilities and not space time.

    Why do humans try to apply the concept of time to an infinite universe? It's like trying to understand how the solar system works by saying the sun revolves around the earth.

    Omg, the utter drivel and garbage being shovelled out here in the name of Science is horrendous! He doesn't even in know that the speed of light has been slowing down from the moment of creation to today.

    Not done, lol....drop your mouse.......et al anything near you....IF you check your position with GPS, AND you do the proper computations, you'll see that it dropped towards the center of the Earth within a few ten-thousandths of a degree.(the molten core is really big...) Einstien was off his wig towards the end, trying to explain huge holes in some of his theories....the easy answer is, yep, mass attracts mass....no rubber sheet analogs, no bending of the space-time continuum....... Proving the accepted opposite has to occur...it never has

    Check the experiments from the ISS about particle accumulation in free-fall gravity conditions (note I didn't mention zero gravity...) These "high-thinkers" LOVE to muddy accepted truths to garner interest in grant money...all BS. Mass attracts mass, and the effect is gravity. (Name it what you want....it is the attraction of a mass to another mass...) WE are the creation of gravity....slight mind bend, but it's a really a slick solution.....research the creation of Earth and our moon.

    Time doesn't exist. There are just cycles per second on atomic clocks.

      @Narf Whals Since 1968, the International System of Units (SI) has defined the second as the duration of 9192631770 cycles of radiation corresponding to the transition between two energy levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom.

    No time does not cause gravity. Please humanity do not go down that rabbit hole. It will set back your species back decades before you figure that out. It is similar to your ideas of space-time. Back to basics people. Gravity, Space, Time, & Flux are each their own entities. Yes they do interact and that will be what you will look at when you are ready to go to another star. But for now just stick with the basics. You will make more progress and may even get a few people off world before you make yourselves extinct.
