But it is said that in a blackhole the laws of physics fail, the laws of relativity fail.
That they do. Known physics breaks down at the event horizon. A major breakthrough in Physics will be from the bod who describes what happens inside the Black Hole.
No they don't make time... they just make it flow there is a difference.
That's the bit I disagree with. To try and put it another way. In the first few thousand years after the big bang there where no Black Holes, was there time? I think so.
Humans "made" time, it is a human construct based completely around our live's.
Now that's getting philosophical. Personally I would say that time just is. My take is that time exists even if there was nothing there to measure it. But thats me.
Abian as it was now termed was discovered... well actually I'd say it's effects were discovered or it's shadow as it is smaller than a Quark. the article was nice and vague.
I really am quite interested in this. Abian was a well known pain in the Language Removed on news://sci.astro. he was a briliant mathematician but not so good at Physics. A certain James "Kibo" Parry spent a lot of time debunking Abian. He might be interested this as well.
HUH, what the hell is frame dragging.
I posted a URL for it in another message. It was one of the last predictions of Relativity to be confirmed. In short, a rotating body will drag spacetime around with it
To finish this I will quote one very famous and Intelligent person, "The greatest pain, is the pain of a new idea." Edison.
True. I personally go with Carl Sagan when he pointed out that being a world expert does not MAKE you right.
Yelmalio - I am having a VERY bad day.
