When you measure time, you measure frequency. When you measure temperature, you measure masses of frequency and amplitude.

If there was no energy, thus no fluctuations/waves, there would be nothing to measure.

Being energy, it is dynamic, which means it changes form. This changing form is what creates time. What is measured is frequency.

The argument for lack of simultaneity in Relativity is that events can be observed in different order from different points of view, but that is the events, not the energy. If you look up at the night sky, you see light from the moon that has only traveled a second or so, but light from stars that has traveled years. So while the observed events are not simultaneous, the energy only arrives/exists in the present.

So the present is the conserved energy, while time is the ordering of events and prior events cease to exist, in order for their energy to be dispersed, in order for causation.

]]>Good point about the Fourier transform:

Uncertainty Principle for the Fourier Transform? f and Fourier(f) have inversely related supports. **The shorter a burst of a wave packet, the more spread the frequencies therein**.

Now momentum, or energy is related to these frequencies (E = h X frequency),,, Frequencies is what Ff is made of. So the more localized the burst, in space, the more spread in frequencies thus in momentum/energy.

However that all flows from WAVES BEING WHAT’s THE WORLD IS MADE OF.

From the American math society, the relationship between function and its Fourier transform:

*The fh and their transforms ah show the uncertainty principle for the Fourier transform at work. Roughly, the more tightly localized the f (t) signal is (the shorter the duration of the sound burst), the less tightly localized the a(λ) distribution must be (the larger the spread in frequencies); conversely, the tighter you cluster the frequencies, the wider the f (t) distribution must be. This principle has very precise and natural formulation for normal probability distributions.

]]>The final point is very good, Tom: many start into physics, because it allows to predict what will happen… Then they get into Quantum Physics.

Hidden Variables are not dead, what’s dead is LOCAL Hidden Variables.

Non-Locality is crucial.

Non-Locality in SPACE.

NON-LOCALITY IN TIME.

?

Look at delayed choice experiments.

Physicists of the Multi World type just swept the difficulty below the carpet: they fear headaches, do pataphysics. Quantum Computer engineers, though know there is gold below these carpets: they don’t fear headaches, just pataphysics.

Hunting down what causes “DECOHERENCE” has become eminently practical. Penrose following some Italians had the stupid idea it had to do with gravity. (I say stupid, because it boiled down to having no Quantum effects away from gravity.) Engineers have been hunting down what causes it. This is a field where opinions are very strong and extremely varied.

My own bet is a non-local PILOT FIELD, spanning (and defining) both space and time.

Thus they can’t be applied beyond that, in particular not before there were carrier fields, etc. Also as I said in my objection to Coel, expansion at time zero in traditional BB theory does not have to be from a small region. It could be from everywhere. I should make a drawing.
