Quantum Possibilities of Time

So we have gone through a basic outline for the theory of quantum gravity (see last post).  At the end I mentioned the terms Kairon and Chromeon, in reference to the two ideas of time the Ancient Greeks held.  Chronos is the linear understanding of time, that time exists as a series of events that run back-t0-back to the end of time.  Kairos is the understanding of time as just the events, not happening in any specific order.  This of course is a basic understanding that becomes much more complex when we take causality into consideration.

Anyway, so the two terms mentioned earlier can be defined as particles that represent each of our ways of understanding the nature of time, which we are treating as a physical, objective thing.  The exchange of Kairons is not constant and happens after a terminal mass is reached with the exchange of gravitons.  The chromeon exchange is constant until absolute zero is reached.

Gravity (or mass), speed and time are all intertwined in ways we can barely perceive or in ways beyond any sort of causal relationships we can determine.  As velocity increases towards the speed of light (c), mass increases towards infinity and time stretches or slows to an infinite instant (at least for the observer of a given object traveling at light or near-light speeds).  Does this happen because the faster an object is moving, the fewer kairons/chromeons are attached or absorbed?  Think of it this way (I think Brian Green said this once):  You are trying to catch the bus and you have 10 minutes to get from where you are to the stop.  By running to the stop you are shortening the total amount of time it takes for you to reach the bus stop.  The slower you go, the more time builds up.

How about this: the gravity or resonance of a space or object can be interpreted in terms of quantum temporality.  Yeah?  How so?  Think of an old building, a place that has remained virtually unchanged over the years (decades or centuries or more).  A structure like that could be seen as rooted in a moment or in a period of time, right?  Take any European city and its buildings.  Some of those have been around for a few centuries and we say those places have a “real sense of history”.  Better yet, take a big fucking rock, like the Bear mountain thing in Yellowstone or the big red rock in the middle of the Australian Outback.  THOSE places have a real sense of history, so much so that they almost exist outside of time.  Ok, not outside but the sense of history or gravity or resonances are present.

Those places don’t move very fast, do they?  Let’s say no.  The slower something moves (because they are being moved and shaped by external forces) the more it gathers these particles of time, both Kairological and Chronological, and the thus the more gravitational resonance builts up.  So maybe these particles of time have mass and therefore effect some objects speed.  Just maybe.

Or how about this: Let’s go back to the gravity of thought or the weight of ideas.  When you really get sucked into an idea or project there can be a perceptable shift in time, usually you don’t notice “how time flies” or whatever.  Sometimes it goes the other way when time can seem to not pass at all.  To me anyway…Either way, being pulled into the gravity well of an idea can pull you out of “linear” time OR it suspends any notion of “linear” time, creating a moment or time bubble.  Since time for that moment has been stretched it collects these particles of temporality…giving it even more weight…

So could time and gravity be two sides of the same coin??  Could they be one in the same?  It’s possible that the Higgs Boson could be the particle that acts as time, since it is speculated to be what gives MASS to everything…But how are gravity and time different?  How are they similar?
