AHHH but here’s where we get into some interesting points…

First off, time is a dual edged sword of a word. There’s time, and then there’s timespace. The two are used interchangably. Time is relative, timespace is dynamic. When they say “time” speeds up, it’s not really time as it is the dimension of time.

Second, yes, time CAN speed up! What the important achievment of quantum dynamics was the proof that EVERYTHING is a waveform. This means, electrons are waves, protons are three waves added together, neutrons are three waves added together, photons are waves, space is a wave, and time is a wave…

Now…picture yourself…you’re in the water, on a raft, in the ocean. You measure the distance between the rising and falling action of the ocean to be a frequency of one wave per ten seconds (you undulate every 10 seconds). Now, a storm approaches, just out of view on the horizon. You can’t see it…but you know it’s coming. How? You undulate once every 5 seconds instead of 10 seconds. The water is not moving faster due to the waves, the mover, the energy is moving faster. In fact, a water molecule could remain in the same place, idealy, and the wave would still go faster.

Apply this to time, which is now represented as a waveform with dipole disturbances. If time speeds up, the effect of the disturbances (a man in a raft) become more dense. The amount of change from one place in time to another increase. Now, that’s frequency modulation.

However, another important change that could happen would be amplitude modulation. Picture, instead, you in a pool. The fat kid down the street decides he wants to do a cannon ball. You’re bobing at the same rate when he jumps in, but you’re traveling MUCH higher and much lower. That’s amplitude modulation. This is where the changes in time are more drastic and just as spaced out.

So, I hope that gives you a new paradigm to consider about time.

Oh, and how is energy an effect of time? Without the mucky math, let’s just say that as time approaches infinity, only one thing can exist in time. That’s energy. There is no matter in infinite time, it’s impossible. Matter is related to finite time. Now take that energy and matter are related by matter times the speed of light squared. This means that matter has a ratio relationship to energy by the speed of light such that

c = sqrt(e/m)

Where “c” is the speed of light, “e” is energy, and “m” is matter. Take the prior given information that as one approaches the speed of light, matter can no longer exist. Also take the information that as one approaches the speed of light, time approaches infinity. Take the limit of the speed of light, and energy goes towards infinity. If all of energy is represented by the limit of speed, and that goes towards infinite time, then energy and time are related. Energy is an effect of time as without time, there would be no energy, and without energy, time could still exist as it is a function of reason, not substance.
