The Rise Of Intelligent Life and How Time Has Slipped into Conciousness
This series of posts are written in lay man’s terms to encourage and help those who wish to enter into the World of physics. There is still much to be learned and understood about our World, the Solar system and the Universe. There are a number of attributes of the Universe that there is much debate about. Two of these attributes are “time” and “gravity”. Many eminent scientists have spent their lives attempting to understand these two attributes and with each passing century our total understanding of exactly the nature of these two attributes leads us to other open doors.
Those, with knowledge of the subject of matter, for the last hundred years have had, at the core of their understanding, Einstein’s work of General Relativity. The apparent problem is that the rules that govern the smaller particles and the rules that govern larger masses do not match and there has been much debate as arriving at a common set of rules that govern all things. However, the attempts at arriving at this set of rules always comes up against General Relativity to which Minkowski gave us “Space time” as a way out of the problem and Einstein rubber stamped it.
In these posts, the rise of intelligent life is understood, not to have taken place over millions of years, but over billions of earth miles in a never ending journey through space aboard spaceship earth. This way of seeing the rise of intelligent life is set against the only universal known method of arriving at means of measuring movement which is through an arc and that is the reference to radians, as no matter were life happens to be in the universe, the circle will always have a circumference, a diameter, a radius and thereby the circumference of the circle divided by the diameter will always equate to the same numerical number of 3.142. Our current way of measuring life is by a relative location in space to the sun and the rotation of a point on the earth’s surface relative to the Sun. This method of measuring life is based on the man made concept of “Time”. It will be shown. in this series of articles, that the concept we have of “Time” is only good for our local place in our Solar System. It will not apply outside our local place in the Solar System. Further, the concept of linking the Suns movement across the sky was brought into being, probably, by cave dwellers. They were happy with breaking down the Suns movement to give them “Daybreak”, “Morning”, Midday”, ” Afternoon” , “Evening” and “Sunset”. Those divisions gave the cave dweller all he needed to know, about were he stood, relative to the position of the Sun. In those basic divisions of the day, the cave dweller was not aware of the concept of time passing or of movement made. However, in retrospect, we know that movement, for sure, was happening and over thousands of years we have substituted that “movement is passing” for “time is passing”. This has led to the “the problem of Time” which has become a problem to Physics only in a relatively short distance of travel, through the universe, by the earth.
Apart from the earth rotation around it’s axis and the earth rotation around the sun. the whole Solar system with the rest of the surrounding galaxy is moving through space at 1000+/- miles every six earth seconds however, an alien in the Andromeda galaxy would give a different number for his “time”.
Within a very short period (of time) of the Earth’s past travel through space many are now questioning the very existence of time. Time has slipped into our vocabulary, is used every day as a way of indicating were we are relative to the Sun, used to explain the distance that light has travelled from distant starts to reach us, and to explain how long ago the big bang took place but mostly to enable us to coordinate our individual lives with he lives of others. This article seeks to replace “time passing” with “distance travelled”.
