Are there any theories or suggestions that there is a force that warps space-time in the opposite way that gravity does?

From my amature understanding of things gravity tends to legnthen space and slow time.

Are there any theories where "something" compresses space and speeds time?

How about travel near the speed of light?

I was thinking about this with regards to the expansion metric of the universe.

could the universe be expanding based only on the increase of gravity or antigravity ( as I am describing above )?

Bump.

Very good question.

Another way of asking the same thing would be:

*- What is the opposite of time dilation if any?

Added:
Google seems to know of no such theories, Just Sci-fi:

Time-compression; the opposite of time-dilation. Feels no faster, but looks FTL. Cancels out with the above if you try to combine the two.

Dark energy?

and thats the problem.. We do not know what it is. 'Dark Energy' = ' Forces Unknown.'

It may not negate gravity. It might just be a stronger force.

Time would just soldier on regardless. It does not care what direction you go.

Not really.
A distance describes the physical still.

Time does not. It describes an affect. Nothing more.

Except that it goes against relativity! What was the point in unifying spacetime if time hasn't a distance measure? (I actually prefer to say that space has a time measure, but that just me.) I guess I'll just go and cross out all the "lightyears" in my text books now. :think:

I disagree. From the photon's perspective, there is no time. Only distance. For all sub-lightspeed events, time and distance are inextricably connected via relativistic equations.

I understand time to be part of space-time, which is a system of coordinates.
Now maybe you are thinking about a duration of time. Which is similar to distance along the t coordinate system.

That is just the assignment we gave the distance.

We could have called light years "Starhops" or FarfromEarths" or uh..."parsecs..." or something...:neutral:

That is a representation. It doesn't make time a physical thing or a description of the physical.

According to mathematics- Yes. It describes the relationships. But that does not mean that it describes the PHYSICAL relationship of TIME nor that Time is a description of physical representation.
Time is an effect.

Because two points in time are separated by a specific amount of time in between.

No.

If you are utterly motionless. If you get off the galaxy and sit unmoving, time will proceed at the same rate (To time, to you, that rate will appear the same, to an outside observer, time will appear to move a bit faster for you).

Time is a word we use to describe the flow of an effect.

The arrow of time moves inexorably towards the increase of entropy in the universe. More disorder is coming. Of that we are certain, otherwise we abandon thermodynamics, and making any sense of the universe is a fruitless excercise. Our hierarchy of conservation laws contains a half dozen that are seen to be consistently inviolate. pete

I do understand exactly where you are coming from- and I understand the role that time plays in the equations...

But...

What I am saying is that time is a representation of the flow. In the same manner that you just described.
Time is "real" in the sense that the effect is real.
But time itself is not a fancy sci fi type THING nor is it like distance. It plots on a graph like distance- but it is not a distance.

Now, if more SR and GR smarts come in too, and persist in telling me I have misunderstood a fundamental concept of time- I will start to listen. And I will look into it.

But as it stands, my understanding of time is that it is not physical- it is an effect. One we can measure (With our inventions), one that can appear to be dilated- but it is a reference- nothing more.

could the universe be expanding based only on the increase of gravity or anti gravity ( as I am describing above )?

Going back to the OP.
Based on the theory of gravity being the effect of mass warping space-time using the simple analogy we are all aware of. A heavy ball is placed on a stretched out piece of rubber sheet and another ball in motion is trapped in orbit around it due to the warping of the sheet. If we think of the space-time fabric in this way, as being a flat stretched out sheet and all mass in our universe is warping this sheet as in the rubber sheet analogy. Then how about (in really simplistic terms), mass on the "other side" of this sheet warping it the opposite way? creating an anti gravity effect.
If instead we consider gravity to be a force, then maybe we can define it somehow as, say - the exchange of gravitons between matter/energy? if this is the case then perhaps there are 2 types of "charge" of a graviton + & - ?:think:

Neverfly
2008-Apr-18, 12:07 AM
The rubber sheet analogy is a simplified analogy. But it is not a true representation of the Warping of space.

As long as something has mass, it will have gravity as we know gravity to behave. There is no "other side of the rubber sheet."

Think of a Black Hole. Light cannot escape.
Yet light has no mass- so why is it affected by gravity?
Because gravity has warped the space to such a high degree that light cannot leave even though it is traveling at 300,000 km per second- in a straight line.
The space is so warped that all straight lines lead back inside.

Try that with a rubber sheet.

I am aware of the rubber sheet analogy to be a simplistic view of the warping of space- time.
The term "gravity" in this theory is the effect of mass on space-time. If you take the simple sheet analogy, a mass large enough warps the sheet so much it could even puncture a hole through in which everything "falls in" (worm hole maybe?). Using the sheet analogy, there are theories about the universe being one of countless membranes, from this point of view there could be "another side". I,m just suggesting simple hypothetical possibilities for the question about anti matter.;)

Trinitree- in this particular case, I have pushed the point because the background wants to turn time into something like a rope- that can be twisted back upon itself- leading to speculations about time travel, time loops, open and closed loops- etc, all of which have no standing in the observational universe.

Sometimes, you can demonstrate these things mathematically, however- that does not mean these things can actually be done anymore than that a white hole can exist. Additional mathematics also usually prevents time loops.

You say flow ... can time be quantized ... or broken down into a smallest unit?

Does time flow in a similar way that a 3d coordinate system flows? Mathmatecally you I could move along a z axis as easily as I could move along a t axis ... I could take snapshots at each point?

Maybe we are travelling through time ... similarly as we are flying through space. we are perciveing our time as a constant flow ... but it really isnt, we are just used to it.

I think I am arguing about symantics here. I believe that time flows but I guess there are two definitions ... one as a point ... a point in time ... and one as a distance or length of time ( flow ). I look at time as a dimention. I understand that if you travel through time or through distance you end up with a positive result. If I go to the store and back I travelled 3 miles not 0 miles. If I go to sleep and wake up I travelled 8 hours. If I went back in time 10,000 years relative to earth ... I would flow x amount of time forwards relative to me ... the last case is where my travel in the t direction relative to the earth is not equal to the travel in the t direction relative to me. t relative to me will always move forward ... similarly to the any particle moving in space. if I throw a boomerang 100 meters and it came back ... relative to it, it went 200 meters ... relative to me it returned to my hand and had a net of 0 distance.

I never said that the same time was everywhere.

Agreed. When the universe first came into existance, it was very ordered - just a bunch of very evenly dispersed pure energy.

Then, it started clumping, and now we have mostly just clumps (stars, planets, galaxies, etc.) with a whole lot of empty nothing between. This is highly disordered, actually, compared to even dispersal, and we're not done yet - things will continue to clump.

I have not treated you like a moron.
I have just pointed out that you are treating time like a distance because you percieve it that way. But although time resembles distance in some ways, in many ways it does not. Time is a word that describes.

A distance is measurable as physical. Time is Not Measurable as physical. Time is a perception. Not a physical thing.

Maybe Not.

Plotting points on a graph is only a representation- mathemtical description.
I do not think we are 'traveling through time' like we are through space. Time is a perception. You are not traveling through it at all. You are not traveling in time. You are percieving the passage of time.

And I disagree with the idea that we are jupming point to point. It is a flow. Just because you plot it as points on a graph does not make it a series of points in life.

If you were utterly motionless ... time would move at an infinite rate.
Huh?:confused:

No a vacuum is not anti-mass.

If you were utterly motionless ... time would move at an infinite rate.

If you consider time to be a co-ordinate rather than a distance it seems obvious that for our reality to exist we need time for motion and we need "constant motion/evolution" to exist! even if it was possible for an object to stand completely still in space the atoms and sub particles are still in constant motion. If it was possible for zero motion/evolution to happen then i would have thought time would be zero also. If we use the capture of a photo or pause a video, as the analogy for our universe at this point then time would freeze.:think: No motion in any co-ordinate?

Time is what stops everything happening at once. Space (and distance) is what stops everything happening in the same place. They are obviously different, but in some ways seem to resemble each other.
Apart from that we can't define either phenomenon fully. I think that some people on this board might say that any attempt to do so is 'magical thinking'. That doesn't mean that they aren't useful concepts; space and time are or course fundamental But because they are fundamental you can't go any further in defining them- they just are.

We cannot "prove" anything you just said. But we can make observations and use our existing knowledge to make predictions (GR and SR for example) that so far, accurately describe our observations.
