I'm still on the fence about this one, but perhaps you experience time dilation from moving through space because you absorb energy in the form of heat as you go faster through space, unlike burning energy to move faster, the small amount of friction in space from its universal temperature is absorbed as you reach high speeds and you leave behind a wake of colder space as you absorb energy continuously occupying a new spot, but the heat absorbed would slow down electron functions and 'time'.

Well yeah.

As theories of time go, this is pretty tepid stuff.

Einstein figured it all out many years ago. Work on an unsolved problem like why time passes faster on weekends.

As before, one has to be traveling near the speed of light to be able to notice.

The local passage of time is always one second per second relative to the observer. This means that no matter your velocity time always seems to pass at the normal rate. It is only by comparing clocks after the fact that time dilation is apparent,

Time dilation explains the orbit of Mercury ... this was always a major knock on Newton and Kepler ...

But to extend what occupied stated above ... unlikely any clock could survive at relativistic velocities ... we know cats can't ...

On second thought the moving object does get hotter but not because it absorbs energy. Because each point that that it moves through is like splashing into new colder water, and because the background of the universe is infinite and unbreakable the gravity field of the moving object shrinks in gradually as you move faster and becomes dense and hotter nearer the atom just as a gravity field puts pressure on atom's.

You cannot experience any time dilutions as you don’t live on a photon or near a giant Star
. When you use GPS: the satellites mathematically use Einstein’s math as they experience less gravity affect than earth

Now, what does this all have to do with Climate Change??? :popcorn:
