Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για time

 

Δεν υπάρχει άνθρωπος που δεν ασχολείται μαζί του, που δεν τα βάζει μαζί του. Ο χρόνος μας καταδυναστεύει, γιατί κυλάει πάνω μας και μας οδηγεί στον αφανισμό. Αλλά χωρίς τον χρόνο θα υπήρχαμε; Τι θα σήμαινε να μην περνάει ο χρόνος και να μην μεγαλώνουμε; Υπάρχει τελικά ο χρόνος ή είναι επινόησή μας; Η επιστήμη, η φιλοσοφία, η τέχνη, η ποίηση, όλοι εμείς προβληματιζόμαστε και στοχαζόμαστε για τον χρόνο. Το “Ανθολόγιο” κάνει ένα μπουκέτο ιδεών και απόψεων περί του χρόνου. Απολαύστε το! Είναι καταπληκτικό!!!

A “frame of reference” is a standard relative to which motion and rest may be measured; any set of points or objects that are at rest relative to one another enables us, in principle, to describe the relative motions of bodies. A frame of reference is therefore a purely kinematical device, for the geometrical description of motion without regard to the masses or forces involved. A dynamical account of motion leads to the idea of an “inertial frame,” or a reference frame relative to which motions have distinguished dynamical properties. For that reason an inertial frame has to be understood as a spatial reference frame together with some means of measuring time, so that uniform motions can be distinguished from accelerated motions.

by Humberto Maturana

  I do not wish to deal with all the domains in which the word time enters as if it were referring to an obvious aspect of the world or worlds that we human live. Indeed, the very fact that time can be made an issue of reflection shows us that what the word time connotes changes with the circumstances in which it is used. This situation alone, however, would not constitute a problem inviting us to enter in deep reflections if we just accepted that the context defined the meaning of the word in each case. But we do not do that, and we ask the question what is time? as if we thought that the word time referred to some independent entity or dimension of nature that could be properly disclosed or described if we tried hard enough, even if we could not the final essence of it. I consider, however, that the question what is time? is adequate because it implies from the start the view that time can be properly treated as some kind of independent entity or dimension of nature. And I consider that such a view is fully inadequate because I think that all that we human beings talk about are relations that arises in our operation in language as a closed domain of recursive consensual coordinations of behaviors. Let me explain what I say with a few words about living, language, and cognition, and then answer the question what distinctions do we make or connote when we talk of time?

Του Νίκου Τσούλια

Σήμερα, στο τέλος του χρόνου, είναι η μέρα της ποικιλομορφίας των προσεγγίσεων για το μέγα ζήτημα του Χρόνου, είναι …χρόνος του κορφολογήματος διάφορων προσεγγίσεων και θεωρήσεων, επιστημονικών, στοχαστικών και φιλοσοφικών, ποιητικών. Υπάρχουν κείμενα εκπληκτικά, κείμενα γνώσης και προβληματισμού, κείμενα που θα ξαναδιαβαστούν και θα ξαναδιαβαστούν, κείμενα που έχουν αποθησαυριστεί σε …βάθος χρόνου και έχουν αξιολογηθεί με ιδιαίτερη επιμέλεια.

Physicists Simulate the End of Time in a Maryland Lab

12/01/2012 Σχολιάστε

End of time experiment

Last October I had an article in Scientific American about what it would mean for time to end—how the world might cease to unfold in a unidirectional sequence of cause and effect. Some processes, for example, could cause time to morph into just another dimension of space. Last week experimenters announced that they have simulated such a temporal calamity in the laboratory. Unable to keep up with the gush of physics papers on the preprint server anymore, I came across this one on the arXiv blog, which I highly recommend to all physics aficionados.
