Harv,

According to Einstein, t is another dimension like x, y, and z. There's an interesting thing here, we know for a fact that all objects in (x,y,z) are moving along t. We even know their speed, they move at exactly 1 second per second. That's right, the whole universe is being thrust forward along the t axis at the amazing speed of 1 s/s, not a nanosecond more, not a nanosecond less.

That's all fine. But now Herr Einstein comes and says, oh, when an object moves along (x,y,z) an interesting thing will happen, its movement along the t axis will slow down. Now isn't that amazing? You blast a rocket through space and your rocket, besides moving along (x,y,z) at a certain speed, will start violating the rules of logic and move along the t axis at a speed that is less than 1 second per second!

If you tell me how in the world that could be possible then we can talk, otherwise I'll take your last post for what it is.

Regards,

Aurino
