Today, I want us to exclusively discuss the two forms of time in the universe. Until post-modern physics, no one had conceived of the two forms of time. What was conceived in the modern era of physics and pioneered by Itzhak Bars was the idea of two dimensions of time.
When you come into post-modern physics, you will find out that the idea or concept of two forms of time is different from that of two dimensions of time. This is all interesting and it shows you how reality has become further enriched by post-modern physics.
In post-modern physics, we have the aspect of dimension and that of form as the two separate but unified aspects of reality. The former founding of physics only on the aspect of dimension no longer continues into post-modern physics which founds physics on the two aspects of form and dimension. I have talked about this in this scientific article.
So, we have two forms of time in the universe and not two dimensions of time and these two forms of time are uniform time and accelerated time. This new discovery of post-modern physics is obviously hidden from physical observation and this is why I always warn us about our dependence on physical observation and the limits of it.
There is no way the use of clocks will inform you about the two forms of time in the universe, but when you try to look at motion independent of clocks, it becomes easy to at least agree that there may exist two forms of time in the universe.
It is because we have become so used to judging the nature of time by the use of clocks that the deep consideration of the proposition of the two forms of time becomes very hard. But if you remove this bias and understand that what we call clocks are just physical tools that do not expose the real nature of time, then you may begin to look at its true nature as post-modern physics reveals.
The idea of two forms of time is completely alien and absent in both classical and modern physics; therefore, in this scientific article, we are proceeding into an entirely new terrain of scientific understanding which post-modern physics has laid down.
In post-modern physics, uniform time is understood thus:
Definition 1: Uniform time is the natural form of time for uniform motion and that is perfectly orthogonal to uniform space.
A good look at the above definition of uniform time informs us that there is a form of time for uniform motion and that it is uniform time. This is the scientific reason for its existence.
The universe apportions a form of time to uniform motion and another form of time to accelerated motion. Both forms of motion, uniform motion and accelerated motion, do not have the same natural form of time. This is an understanding of the qualitative nature of the universe.
The two forms of time is another way of talking about the two qualities of time. So, there are two qualities of time that respectively and naturally applies to uniform motion and accelerated motion. This truth about motion is very beautiful as it shows us how profoundly intentional the universe is.
Also, there are two forms of space in the universe, which are uniform space and accelerated space, and uniform time is the form of time that is perfectly orthogonal to uniform space and not accelerated space. This does not apply to accelerated time which is defined thus in post-modern physics:
Definition 2: Accelerated time is the natural form of time for accelerated motion and that is perfectly orthogonal to accelerated space.
The definition of accelerated time above informs us that accelerated time is the natural form or quality of time for accelerated motion and it is what is perfectly orthogonal to accelerated space and not to uniform space.
The definitions of the two forms of time above are how we are supposed to understand time in this post-modern era of truth. Looking at clocks and their mechanical behaviour was a very wrong way of understanding the nature of time.
But now, we have ascended from this grossly physical way of understanding time to the finely metaphysical way of understanding time. The latter presents to us the true transcendent nature of time and its eternal meaning.
This is important beyond common scientific reasons, for as we become conversant and conscious of this transcendent and eternal time, we ourselves will touch eternity. This is as we leave physical time based on clocks and a false sense of flow to metaphysical time based on the eternal the true sense of flow.
The definitions of the two forms or qualities of time show us the important role orthogonality plays in our understanding of them. Orthogonality is so important in post-modern physics that it is established as a principle referred to as the orthogonality principle.
Uniform time and accelerated time and their definitions as presented in this scientific article are what was incorporated into the Treatise to give us the first ever unified understanding of the universe. And in the Treatise, I made the effort to distinguish between uniform time and accelerated time such that they are depicted in the manner shown below:
I did the above because I understand that it can be easy to conceive of the two forms of space but the two forms of time are more transcendent. So, I used the depiction above just to give us a way of representing uniform time and accelerated time.
The above which shows uniform time as equal intervals and accelerated time as unequal intervals should not be taken as their true picture. It is just a depiction which is however useful.
Also, as the above shows, uniform time is mathematically written as “dt” and it should not be interpreted as a derivative of time unless when indicated while accelerated time is mathematically written as “Δt” and it should not be taken as a change in time unless when indicated.
Maybe as post-modern physics progresses, a more exclusive way of representing uniform time and accelerated time will emerge. But for now, I have introduced their presentations as above.
The definitions of uniform time and accelerated time are as simple as they have been presented in this scientific article. In another article, I discussed the meaning of absolute time, and in this article, I have proceeded to give us the definitions of the two forms of absolute time.
So, it is important that you realize that this article discusses the two forms of absolute time. Relative time which is judged based on clocks and their mechanical behaviour does not exhibit two forms.
Post-modern physics is calling us to a new way of understanding time and the universe, and I am convinced that this is just the beginning of our understanding of the metaphysical universe which is the true nature of the universe.
And as we progress into the future, our understanding of the metaphysical universe will only further increase until we come into direct and practical contact with absolute time and its two forms, uniform time and accelerated time. At this point, man will come to know the experience of immortality.
Until next time,
I will be here.
