The Physical Nature of Time

Authors: Guido F. Nelissen

One of the greatest mysteries of the present physics is the physical nature of ‘time’. In this paper the author demonstrates that the ageing of a composite, multi-particle system is a general expression for the loosening of the internal coherence of its basic particles, which is mathematically expressed as the increase of its entropy. In that way, the ‘time’ of a given particle system can be expressed by the relation between the increase of its entropy and the increase of the entropy of a particle system with a steady entropy increase, that is taken as a time standard or "clock". It is thereby demonstrated that this definition of the ‘time’ leads in a self-evident way to the time dilation of high speed particle systems, which is demonstrated to be a real physical phenomenon. And this leads on its turn to Einstein’s gravitational time dilation and to the time contraction with ageing.
