: Phil.o.sofir: : ***What does east or west have to do with time and the loss or gain of time? I put forth the notion that time is our perception of an changing present...

: Greg: : Flying east adds about 7500mph to one's acceleration near the equator and altitude changes one's proximity to the center of earth's gravity. Perception doesn't change the ocillation rates of atomic structures son, and atomic clocks don't lie.

***What is this 7500mph/equator/and center of earths gravity? A speed is a speed, do you mean in realation to fuel consumption per mile travelled or something? Anyway, you are basing your argument it seems on some kind of principle which applies to earth and gravity which has no relationship to the passage of time as it is theorized, and as especially as related to the entire universe. I do understand that atomic clocks are the best known, better yet would be clocks based upon the movement and relationships between electrons which they are currently working on now as well as for units of wieght. All this said, how does your atomic clock experiment prove that time is tangable and not simply a very good and convienient tool for mans system of measurements?
