Relativity and Cosmology


Time is not Relative

Authors: Peter V. Raktoe

A clock mechanism registers time in the form of a second, and that second doesn't say anything about what time is. We say that a clock tells us what time it is, but the seconds only represent a time period (an amount of time). So when you measure that there is a difference in the rate of two synchronized clocks then you cannot conclude that time itself dilates, you can only conclude that the seconds dilate.
