As a science fiction writer, I tend to think outside the box. Sometimes, the ideas become so esoteric that I have to fall back, and re-think them.
As I read about the Parker Solar Probe, I just wonder if there is a way to run one more experiment.
The purpose of the experiment is to determine if, “Time close to the sun,” is the same as we experience on earth.
For eons, science fiction writers have gotten it wrong. Thinking about the time machine, for instance, we see the walls build, and crumble, around our intrepid time traveler, as he goes forward and backward in time.
The authors of such novels did not take time-space, and celestial mechanics, into consideration when they wrote their novels. Who can blame them? The ideas are obscure, and few would try to truly understand what is going on.
If our time machine did more than twirl a huge disk and had some lights blink, we would see that in order for it to travel in time it, would necessarily jump outside of the time-space that the earth is in.
Said another way, it would become separated from the earth and this solar system. Therefore, what would that look like and why?
It is my contention as a science fiction writer, and nerd, that this solar system is in its own time zone. That time zone is created by mass, and how that mass actually warps space around it.
The idea came to me when there was an anomaly with one of the Voyagers. As it went further into deep space, outside of the effects of the Heliopause, they said it was slowing. NASA reported that it was slowing down. Is it, or is it simply in a new time zone where time is perceived differently?
It is my contention that it is the latter, which means time, and light years, and so on, are not as we perceive them at all.
If our time machine left the Earth’s Space-time, celestial mechanics would move the earth in several different directions at once. Not only is the earth rotating on its axis but also it is orbiting the sun on the X-axis. The solar system, carried along by the Milky Way, is moving both on its X, and Y,-axis, simultaneously.
Once our friend pulled the magic lever, he might pass through the earth, or find himself in space.
As I write about this in Under Roswell, or The Saga of the Starduster, time, as we understand it is not correct.
Not many years ago, there were reports by airport personnel, including air traffic controllers, and pilots of a UFO hovering over the O’Hare airport. Like a shot, it suddenly went vertical, “faster than a speeding bullet.” Leaving holes in the clouds, on its departure.
We know from our understanding of space travel, and so forth, that the G-force would have made the occupants look worse than any bug, on any windshield. Because we “know” that to be true, we dismissed it, as it could not have happened.
Because of our understanding of physics, using the Abacas and slide rules, that we have. We could not make sense of it; the incident was passed off, as “swamp gas, or a hoax.”
Even though there were several that saw it, all saying the same thing, it did not happen.
Well, my feeble brained friends, and those of you who are not so feeble, what if those in that disc-shaped object, pushed their magic lever, and found themselves outside of our space-time?
If you accept that not all of the UFO sightings are hoaxes, then we must look for other answers.
If they are not hoaxes, how did they get here?
“In Under Roswell, I write about a Point in Time modulator, which of course is something I made up, as a plot device. Unlike the infamous Flux Capacitor, I try to dig into the science, of how this could happen, without using the proverbial slide rule.
What I would love NASA to do, is devise some test, that they could perform with this sun probe, to see if the time-space around the sun is different from what it is here on earth.
I am assuming that there will be telemetry from the device. That data stream may change in baud rate or frequency, as it gets closer to the sun.
Most will want to blame the heat from the sun, but just possibly, someone will think about shifting their algorithm to match that of the data stream, to see that there might indeed be a time change.
If correct, the way that we perceive time and distance would change. The distance to the stars would necessarily change.
What is the time zone like in the void between galaxies, where there is no mass to create warpage of the space-time?
