Time is not physical

Time is an important issue in live and relativity. The definition of time can be found here. Time is a great measuring tool invented by humanity. Time helps humanity to predict and understand and explain all kinds of events. But is is NOT a physical property. Space-Time is about the inertia of energy.

Remarkable is that time is defined in units of second. The SI definition of second is “the duration of 9 192 631 770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium 133 atom”.

So, the second is the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of radiation.  This EM-radiation is in the micro wave band. Near the orange arrow.


The ground state of the cesium 133 atom will respond to changing (volume, radiation or matter) energy (flows and potentials) at the current moment. The ground state of the cesium 133 atom will have another behaviour in another state.

So physical processes are set by the actual energy flows and energy potentials in the volume, radiation and matter. Thus atom clocks will run different in a volume with different energy flows. Just as mechanical pendulums. Also biological process will evolve different in different energy potentials. Rethinking this it means that every human being ages at different speeds during it’s life.

But remember, time cannot be part of the physical explanation. Not at t=1 nor at t=2 nor at t=x. Period!
