```							False Time Perception
Hypothesis
By Philosophical Gamer
(Hypothesis name not final)
What I Mean
• What I mean is that the rate of time
everywhere is the same rate
• It is the rate of time that may vary, which I’ll
explain after the main argument
• The simplest way to explain this idea is that
we are not measuring the passage of time
correctly.
Example to Relate – Part 1
• Imagine a fictional city where they based all of
their time measurements by a large battery
powered clock
• Eventually, the clock would slow down as the
battery wore down, even if it was charged, it
• Because the people base all of their time
measurement on that clock, to them, time has
slowed or they have sped up
Example to Relate – Part 2
• They don’t use any other method, so to them,
that’s the absolute truth
• If the clock stopped, then to them, they are
travelling through time much faster than
possible
• But really, others outside of the city not
dependent on the clock would see that time is
still passing by normally
Faster is Slower
• The main point comes down to this, it is not time
that accelerates or slows down at all, it’s just
showing a similar effect as if it did
• When things are going faster, their reactions are
slower, creating the illusion of slowed or sped up
time
• It doesn’t matter the force causing the speed
change so much as that it does for the main
message here
• This would explain why time seems to pass by at
different rates with different speeds
The Math to It
• I don’t know any formula that explains it, that
I have not looked into enough, but the answer
probably lies in quantum physics.
• It does explain though how faster particles
deteriorate slower, and combine slower
Time Travel
• By this logic, time travel as we understood it,
is completely impossible
• There have been tests where particles appear
just before others disappear, but that is no
proof that it’s time travel
– How do we know if it’s the same particle?
– Even if the charasteics are the same?
The Fourth Dimension – Part 1
• Now in recent years, the idea that time is the
fourth dimension has come up. This is still
completely possible.
• Why this works is a very common
• The fourth dimension in this case is not a
The Fourth Dimension – Part 2
• The fourth coordinate would be used to
represent time.
• For instance, 94 degrees west, 24 degrees
south, 5000 feet in the air, 1968 A.D.
• That would be a place in four dimensions.
• It just happened in the past.
• The coordinates mentioned though don’t have
any real significance other than an example.
Illusion with a Purpose
• Continuing this logic, it’s likely time is nothing but
an illusion
• It’s possible there is some physical force creating
it, but most likely there isn’t, and it’s just an
emergence from the result of atomic reactions.
• Just because it’s an illusion however, doesn’t
mean we can’t use it to measure things
• We just need to remember time is a simplifier,
not an existing process
Different Rates of Time – Part 1
• Earlier, I mentioned that time’s passage
everywhere is the same, but that rate may
vary
• What I mean by that is, if the rate of time
everywhere changed, we wouldn’t know
• That would be in grander time
• A continued explanation follows…
Different Rates of Time – Part 2
• If time stopped everywhere for a trillion years,
then continued, how would we know?
• We would be stopped all that time, and then
only when it continued would we continue
• If time accelerated, we wouldn’t know either
Different Rates of Time – Part 3
• It’s like a computer simulation for the
simulated.
• To the things inside, the rate of processing
things is the same, even though on the
outside we see it changing
A Disclaimer
• Disclaimer time.
• I don’t know all of the details on how they research
time.
• Perhaps this is already known, and disproved because
of other things I had not heard of
• It’s possible this is ridiculous, and I know it.
• It’s possible that it does occur at different rates
throughout the universe, but it’s also possible it’s the
same
• It’s only a hypothesis at this time
• Any proof for this or against this I’m open to hearing
Summary
• Time seems slower because the reactions are
slower, but that doesn’t make time slower
– Just the reactions don’t occur at the same speed
•   Faster objects have slower reactions
•   Time travel, as we understood it, is impossible
•   Time is an illusion with a purpose
•   We can still use time in our lives, it’s just
understanding the measurement of it needs
work
