center of the earth, time speeds up, I think. Why does it do so? I'm not arguing that it doesn't, I'm wondering why the flow of time changes and is there an actual universal flow of time. Meaning that nature wants time to go at one and only one rate, but if there are circumstances, that rate can change. A parallel is a bathtub. The water stays at a certain level. The circumstance is if you put a hippo in the tub, the water level seems to increase, but only because there is a hippo in the tub. Once you take the hippo out, the water level returns to its original height.
Does such a thing occur in nature with time in the universe?
