Heres a good one for people with too much time on their hands and T3 connections on their computers.
Is there a unit of measure for the energy imbued onto matter by the passage of time? Because all motion is measured by watching the clock, then what is the temporal benchmark?
It is theorized that as you near a black hole, time becomes compressed and slows down from your perspective (see old Cosmos episodes). Therefore, if you spent, say twenty minutes in a close orbit of a BH, many thousands of years would have passed here at home.
So my question is, if time can be compressed it can also be decompressed and what is the unit of measure that describes these conditions?
