The grid image around the Earth below is a well known portrayal of what is usually referred to as the curvature of Space. However, Professor Albert Einstein, the inventor, always referred to it as the curvature of Space -Time. For some reason scientists usually focus on the first word SPACE. What about TIME?
What would the "Curvature of Time" look like?
What possibilities could it present?
It is now common scientific knowledge that GPS satellites have specially designed clocks to correct for the "Curvature of Time", which clearly shows that this is not science fiction!
An internet search about the "effects of Time Dilation on GPS satellites due to GENERAL relativity" will show that without the "adjusted" clocks, Time-Curvature would result in an Accumulated Time Dilation (ATD) of +45 microseconds a day ahead of Earth clocks..
This NOT due to the movement of the satellite as described by the Special Theory of Relativity. This is due to the General Theory of Relativity. +45 Microseconds may seem extremely small but read on for the big picture.
(We can ignore the -7 micro-seconds slowing due to the Special Theory of Relativity for now, See "Time for more Time" in the preview section for an explanation)
Accumulated Time Dilation (ATD) measured in Cosmic timelines instead of "day to day" timelines results in astonishing numbers! (Astonishing may be an understatement when compared to the miniscule "Day to Day" effects on a GPS satellite).
An example of how large it may possibly be is based on estimated Accumulated Time Dilation around our own Sun. After rough estimated calculations are made, the Sun is a large number of years behind in Time compared to not so far away empty space. Also using rough estimated calculations, our own Moon may be 2 years ahead of our own Earth Time!
( See "Time for more Time" on the PREVIEW page later for a much smaller but more accurate example based on real world numbers using the same GPS satellite!)
Is the satellite in the picture below following the curves of Space or is it following the curves of Time as well? Science focuses on the Curvature of Space, but is there another possibility? (Yes, it is called the curvature of Space-Time in the beginning of all science shows and writings I have seen but that later changes to the curvature of space with only fleeting mentions of Time.)
The rings pictured below are generally thought of as curves in space but what if we consider the curvature of Time in more detail?
In space outside the curved lines shown below, time flows at a faster rate. Time passes at a slower rate as you approach the Earth. Although this difference appears to be extremely small as science measures it day to day, it is actually extremely large when measured from a Cosmic timeline point of view.
We do not see the 2 year difference between the Earth and the Moon because anything such as Laser Range Finders (light), Radar or even an Astronaut have to cross over "Accumulated Time Dilation Zones" in BOTH directions to travel from the Earth to the Moon and back. In other words, if you travel ahead 2 years in Time to get the Moon, you have to travel 2 years back in Time to get home. A net Time travel of zero!
Is it safe to state that more Time is a higher energy state and less Time is a lower energy state? Much more happens in 2 years than in 2 minutes! More Time can also be thought of as higher pressure while less Time is lower pressure. That can also be represented by the curved lines below and an explanation for Gravity! Click HERE for an independent recent video version of part of my theory! Accumulated (Cumulative) Time Dilation is NOT taken into account in that video.

Coincidentally, whenever you move "back" in Time while approaching an area of increasing ATD, something seems to also be pulling you in the same direction. Whenever you travel "forward" in Time, away from the same area and toward decreasing ATD, something seems to want you to go in the other direction!
Ask Scientists to ANSWER the following FIVE questions, IN ORDER.
(DO NOT SPOIL IT!, ASK IN ORDER!)
1. Is the moon moving faster through time than the Earth? (General Theory of Relativity)
2. If Yes, By how much? (Example: 1 second on Earth = 1.0000009 seconds on the moon)
3. If you take the age of the Moon since the collision that created it, and multiply that by the extra time, what would that equal?
(Ex: 1.0000009 Seconds [Moon] - 1.0 [Earth] =.0000009 Seconds difference (per Second).
Then convert the age of the Moon to seconds and multiply that by .00000009 then convert that back into Years, Days, Months etc. The answer is astounding!)
4. If, since it's creation, the Moon has moved further forward in time compared to Earth Time, then Light, Radar or an Astronaut travelling from Earth to the moon, all have to Time travel to catch up to the Moon's Time?
(Slightly redundant to 4 above)
If the Moon is moving FASTER through TIME than the Earth, whenever light, radio or an astronaut travel from Earth to the Moon, do they have to "catch up" and enter it's "Time zone"?
Does this "catch up" require extra "energy" or extra "perceived" travel time?
In simpler words, would a very long tape measure show a different physical distance to the moon than a laser range finder or radar?
(Can our measurement of physical space be wrong?)
PLEASE let me know the answer they give!
(even if it is "NO" and "WHY" it is no!)
"Other equations work so this idea must be wrong " is not a scientific answer!
The Scientific Method requires Reason / Proof related directly to the theory, not a "no answer" or quoting other theories.
Please skip the following fine print unless you are well versed on this subject!
Critics contend this theory has no scientific basis since present calculations are working just fine.
1. Present calculations for orbits / trajectories etc. within our solar system will slowly drift and become wrong after a few centuries.
Cause: Such calculations are made based on recent measurements and do not take into account Accumulated Gravimetric Time Dilation (Which WILL change slowly over time.)
The calculations WILL NOT be accurate after centuries of additional Accumulated Gravimetric Time Dilation occurs. (Measurements made again at said time will solve this for another few centuries)
2. Local / solar system measurements applied to more distant "cosmic" objects / phenomena will be inaccurate unless Accumulated Gravimetric Time Dilation (sometimes extreme) is factored in.
Scientists will continue to invent "dark matter", "dark energy" and other ideas to compensate for the inconsistencies that will always be present when not considering the (sometimes extreme) Accumulated Gravimetric Time Dilation of these objects / phenomena.
Can Space Curvature and Time Curvature be interchangeable?
Here on Earth Time can be represented in whole units, that is to say 1 second or 1 minute (and so on). Professor Albert Einstein's proven General Theory of Relativity clearly now shows that once we consider leaving our planet, The rate of Time flow will change so that 1 second or 1 minute (and so on) will not be the same as on Earth! This is known as Gravimetric Time Dilation.
To make matters slightly more complicated, why can't something as simple as the Velocity Equation V=D/T also be V=T/D instead? 55 Miles / 1 Hour (Move 55 Miles in units of 1) vs.1 Hour / 55 Miles (in 1 hour move 55 Miles). This alternate version now allows us to easily make Time a "variable" as Einstein's Theories correctly predicts and requires! In this new format we are no longer "bound" into always showing time in unchanging units of 1. Time varies!
Amazingly, this "format" seems to be able to convert any and all Space-Curvature equations to Time-Curvature equations giving the SAME RESULTS as explored through thought experiments! What this ultimately means is that ALL past and present research and equations, including the recent Gravity Probe B and "Gravity Waves" , can be converted to this format without changing the end results! All we have to do is mathematically rearrange any related equations so that TIME becomes truly a variable as we know it is! Time cannot and should not be an unchanging "1" as science now represents it!
(Advanced Thoughts: It is not as simple as V=T/D. A system of modified equations is required. One equation, V=Accumulated Time Dilation / Distance is needed to represent the changes in "Time Curvature" and another equation V=Distance /Time Proper to show movement through space.)
Why on Earth would we want to change what already seems to work? Simply because it opens up a forever growing list of new possibilities not found in the Space-Curvature model alone!
More is better!
"TIME FACTOR THEORY" uses step by step simplified thought experiments to first better familiarize you with TIME itself. After familiarization you will then be ready for a Mind and Time bending journey that will take you to many never-before-published ideas based on Time. (See note at bottom of page)
And it is
If you understand basic Algebra and the Equations of Velocity and Acceleration,
then it doesn't get much more complicated than that!
V = D / T (Displacement or Distance per Time unit)
and Acceleration: (Change in Velocity)
A = ± Δ V (± Δ is plus or minus delta or "Change in" Velocity),
(More complex ideas are marked as "advanced thoughts" for anyone so inclined... but can be skipped.)
Many important questions will be answered along the way.
Many new ideas will also be explored that may give alternate explanations for:
Disclaimer: These are unproven ideas, however they are not directly dis-proven either.
Please do not cite generalized disagreement, current math or ideas as dis-proof!
Trying a new recipe NEVER includes being forced to follow old recipes, does it?
Furthermore, Pooh Poohing new ideas slows down our advancement!
(The Dark Ages are over!)
However, feel free to post comments as we explore new ideas!
"Fringe" Science is avoided!
All ideas presented are based on logical step by step possibilities derived from proven Scientific ideas.
Purely speculative science fiction-type ideas are avoided.
(Except when needed as a means to reduce certain human limitations such as extreme long distance travel. Scientific explanations given)
"Fringe" science is: multi-universes, Time is an illusion, Time travel to kill your own Grandfather before you were born etc.
Time an illusion? Tell that to your boss when your alarm clock is set an hour late by mistake!
Please see the Preview Page for a sample of the book.
The movie "Interstellar" has since used the Time -Travel effect caused by Black Holes that is also described in the previous edition of this book published in 2010 (and on its accompanying website).
Stephen Hawking's version additionally required an extremely fast orbital speed.
