Subtitle: The Two Branches of Two Time Physics
Subjects: Forms and Dimensions, the Two Great Aspects of Reality
“The 2T approach could be one of the possible avenues to construct the most symmetric version of the fundamental theory.”
Dr Itzhak Bars
In modern physics, there is this brilliant idea about two dimensions of time. This brilliant idea is being pioneered by Dr Itzhak Bars of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.
He is suggesting to the scientific community and to the world at large that there are two dimensions of time in the universe. This idea is a very bold one, considering the fact that our physical observations of time do not indicate it.
According to this theory, our normal notion of three dimensions of space and one dimension of time are shadows of a four-dimensional space and two-dimensional time reality. So, in Bar’s theory, we are looking at a “six-dimensional reality.”
What I really want us to critically look at in this article is the idea of dimension in two time 2T physics, and it is a concept you and I understand very well. We have been dealing with dimension since we began doing physics and mathematics.
So, in this article, I will not delve into the intricacies of two-time physics and its application in gauge symmetries or transformations, all of which entails concepts that are not relevant to The Theory of the Universe.
However, this article seeks to vindicate two-time physics by informing you about how you should understand two-time 2T physics in the post-modern era of physics. While the idea of two-time physics is plausible, it has however been made complex by the standard model of which its many mathematical frameworks have no relationship with reality.
Dr Itzhak Bars
They can be compared to the epicycles of pre-classical science. In this article, I want to vindicate and honour the idea of two-time physics because it is found in “the fundamental theory” and in a different form.
I want to vindicate the idea of two-time physics in two ways. The first is to establish how the idea should be understood, and the second is to extricate it from the standard model which has hindered the progress of this great clue we have in modern physics about the true nature of reality.
So, first of all, modern two-time physics only considers the aspect of dimension for both space and time. But we now know in post-modern physics that there is another aspect of reality called form which applies to both space and time.
In post-modern physics, what we have is two forms of time and not two dimensions of time. When I talk about the aspect of forms what do I really mean? You know that dimension is an aspect of reality that allows any two designations of space to lie orthogonally to each other.
Now, the aspect of form is what allows any two designations of space and time to lie non-orthogonally to each other. In this aspect of form, two designations of space can lie almost in the same plane. Form is an aspect of reality that allows any two designations of space and time to form a composite mixture in the same plane.
Dimension is an aspect of reality that preserves orthogonality, while form is an aspect of reality that does not preserve orthogonality. Please, you must understand this distinction between these two great aspects of reality, of which the aspect of form is the one big missing component in all of physics since its inception.
Dimension and form are the two aspects of reality due to the great conceptualization. And while dimension is related to the quantitative nature of the universe, form is related to the qualitative nature of the universe. Both aspects in post-modern physics make up for the complete understanding of the universe.
Form, as defined, is a real aspect of reality just like the aspect of dimension. Now, in modern two-time physics pioneered by Dr Izthak Bars, time is assumed to have two dimensions in such a manner that they are orthogonal to each other and thus both form the boundaries of a temporal plane.
But according to The Theory of the Universe which is the theory of everything the modern description of two-time physics is not true. We have only two forms of time and not two dimensions of time. In other words, the two forms of time are non-orthogonal to each other.We have only two forms of time and not two dimensions of time.Click To Tweet
The two forms of time do not exhibit the aspect of dimension or the property orthogonality to each other. They exhibit only the aspect of form or property of non-orthogonality with each other, thus, they co-exist as a composite mixture in the same temporal plane.
This new understanding is evident from the post-modern space-time diagrams of the universe which are based on the great conceptualization. So, in post-modern physics, we talk about the two non-orthogonal forms of time and not the two orthogonal dimensions of time.
This is the new understanding of two-time physics that will vindicate it as a way to the true theory of the cosmos. The transformation of two-time physics to be about two forms of time and not two dimensions of time is evidently what extricates two-time physics from the standard model.
This new idea of two-time physics as dealing with two forms and not dimensions of time is alien to the standard model in which it is so framed. Two-time physics is framed within the conceptual framework of relativity itself, and in this conceptual framework, the two forms of time are well conceptualized.
Unlike modern two time physics framed in the standard model which the two dimensions of time are only designations that lack any true conceptualization, post-modern two-time physics conceptualizes the two forms of time as uniform time and accelerated time.
Listen, two-time physics is more fundamental than we think. It goes to the very foundation of physics and it alters in a progressive way our understanding of relativity. This new theory of relativity based on two-time physics is what I call Absolute Relativity. It is the fundamental theory of the universe.
Now, in the new relativity, the two forms of time informs us that during uniform motion, what dilates is uniform time, and during accelerated motion what transforms is accelerated time.
This is the new understanding of relativity emerging in this post-modern era due to two-time physics. Uniform time is responsible for our natural experience of uniform motion, while accelerated time is responsible for our natural experience of accelerated motion. This is now how two-time physics should be understood.
The two forms of time obviously correspond to the two forms of motion in the universe, uniform motion and accelerated motion. Also, know that we now have two forms of space corresponding to the two forms of motion in the universe but it is not our concerned in this article.
The need for two forms of space as well as two forms of time shows you an underlying technical similarity between post-modern two-time physics and modern two-time physics. This is evident because modern two-time physics necessarily extends the dimensions of space while post-modern two-time physics necessarily extends the forms of space.
Their only difference, at a fundamental level, is due to the alteration of the aspect of reality which is of concern to both epochs of two-time physics. Modern two-time physics is concerned about how the aspect of dimension applies to time, while post-modern two-time physics is concerned about how the aspect of form applies to time.
This translation of two-time physics from the aspect of dimension to that of form completely revolutionalizes our understanding of the theory, and this, as I have said, extricates the theory from the standard model and places it in a new conceptual framework. Absolute relativity is the true conceptual framework of two-time physics.
This relationship between the two forms of time and the two forms of motion may be behind the belief in two-time physics by its proponents. So, if two-time physics rings as true, it is because of its correspondence to the two forms of motion in the cosmos.
So, one can say that two-time physics now has two branches. One is the modern branch of two dimensions of time physics and the other is the post-modern branch of two forms of time physics. The second branch is what leads to the vindication of two-time physics.
Furthermore, the incorporation of the new aspect of form into physics alongside the aspect of dimension changes in a revolutionary way our understanding of light and gravity. The new understanding of light and gravity as limits of inertia is emerging from two-time physics.
When we talk about the two forms of time and not the two dimensions of time, it becomes obvious to you that we are dealing with entities that are really concrete and conceptualizable and are beyond mere mathematical designations.
Now, you may ask, is there no dimensional aspect or orthogonal property attached to time? Yes, there is, but only when it is associated with space. Uniform time is orthogonal to uniform space while accelerated time is orthogonal to accelerated space. This new representation of space-time diagrams in two-time physics are shown in the article below:
In modern two time physics, the distinction is between two dimensions of time physics and one dimension of time physics. But in post-modern two-time physics, the distinction is between two forms of time physics and one form of time physics. Notice the shift in the understanding of two-time physics.
Also, notice how our prior notion of one dimension of time becomes that of one form of time, following the pattern in which the modern conception of two dimensions of time becomes the post-modern conception of two forms of time. This is important if you must understand the evolution of two time physics.
Two-time physics based on two dimensions of time proposes that we cannot observe the other dimension of time because it is rolled up and infinitesimal, or it sometimes makes the analogy that we don’t observe the other form of time just as we don’t observe every dimension of a three-dimensional object.
So, with this analogy, the 3+1 space-time dimensions of one time 1T physics are shadows of the complete 4+2 space-time dimensions of two time 2T physics. However, in post-modern two forms of time physics, none of the two forms of time is rolled up and non-observable.
Like I have said, both are intimately connected to our experience of motion, both to uniform and accelerated motions. The two forms of time, unlike the two dimensions of time, are not products of any mathematical trickery neither do they subscribe to any analogy, there is a real metaphysics behind them.
Remember I said metaphysics above. Yes, I did. Now let me tell you why. In modern two-time physics, the distinction between two dimensions of time 2T physics and one dimension of time 1T physics is made only on a physical and mathematical plane.
In this distinction, two dimension of time 2T physics is mathematically different from one dimension of time 1T physics but they both lie on the same physical plane. Both are physical theories with different mathematical formulations, even though two time 2T physics has been shown to reduce to one time 1T physics.
It is by this capacity of two dimensions of time physics to reduce the one dimension of time physics that it shows how one dimension of time physics is a shadow of two dimensions of time physics.
However, in post-modern two-time physics, two-time physics is mathematically similar to one time physics in that they are both algebraic but they lie on different planes. Two forms of time physics lie in a metaphysical plane while one form of time physics lies in a physical plane.
This is the distinction between the two in post-modern physics. In the metaphysical plane, we are concerned about the quantitative and the qualitative natures of the universe and this leads to the two forms of time.
However, in the physical plane, we are concerned about only the quantitative nature of time and this leads to the notion of one form of time. So, post-modern two forms of time physics is a metaphysical theory while one form of time physics is a physical theory.
Post-modern physics shows how the physical one form of time physics is a shadow of the metaphysical two forms of time physics. And in post-modern two time physics, the introduction of two forms of space preserves our notion of three dimensional space for both forms of space.
This is beneficial and it is unlike modern two time physics where the dimensions of space are extended beyond our normal notion of three dimensional space. Also, the two forms of time is responsible for our conception or the notion of the square of time in physics.
These new insights and results could not have been achieved by two dimensions of time physics. I really want you to observe how our understanding of two-time physics has changed from the modern era of physics into the post-modern era of physics.
Author’s Note: In some of my articles and also in my e-book, I have discussed important technical results due to the new post-modern branch of two-time physics based on form. So, read them to have a better understanding of the universe.
This article is about the vindication of two-time physics. It shows you the new evolution of two-time physics from its modern description as a physics that proposes the existence of two dimensions of time in the universe to its new post-modern description as a physics that proposes the existence of two forms of time in the universe.
There is a difference in these two kinds of two-time physics, and the second kind which alters radically how we understand motion and relativity is the one that steers us to the theory of the universe.
I really want to appreciate the noble efforts of Dr Itzhak Bars to promote and pioneer two-time physics and for how far he has gone in this pursuit. It is the only great idea in modern physics which can really lead us to “the fundamental theory”, and now has.
