I've Heard An Interesting Point On Speed And Time

We live in a "4-dimensional" universe, string theory and all that aside. The weird thing with the passage of time, is that the faster we move through space, the slower time passes. The passage of time is pythageon's (sp?) theorm (sp) only instead of adding space and time, you subtract them.

So in a way, in kinda like time is consistent with effort. If we put no effort to move, time will flow the "quickest". But if you move, the faster you go, the more effort you are putting in to "slowing" down time.

So I guess to posit a position that claims that time speeds differentiate with space seems misleading and unsubstantiated without some serious differential equations, laplace transforms, fourier series, etc... to back it up. You know, the equations with subscripts that have their own subscripts. :^P The passage of relative time is in direct response to our motion within space and the warping of the space being traveled on.

The claim being made is too exotic, not to have some serious math to back it up.
