It's an emergent property of time dilation.
Imagine walking at the side of the road with your eyes closed.
Under your left foot there is asphalt. Under your right foot there is mud.
Assuming you walk forward perfectly, as you walk you'll tend to “gravitate” towards the right because you move slower in the mud.
You can imagine the same with a tank since it rotates by changing the speed of the wheels' tracks.

The mud is a region of space in which “time” moves slower than in the asphalt. Turns out that time moves slower where there is a lot of stuff (or energy).

Do you understand spacetime? Can you give me a property that time and or space has that makes it a "thing" that "exists"? A phenomena that causes something to happen? No, you don't have that. You have an assumption with no empirical evidence whatsoever. So you're absolutely correct.

Tidal "force". Also saying that magnets have a "force" inbetween them is like saying two tables have a "force" inbetween them because you used feng shui to arrange them differently. The difference in strength is because the magnetism from the planet is INCOHERENT. It is made from a conglomeration pf para and diamagnetic materials which alter it. Obviously a higher quality dielectric will exhibit a stronger field.

"OF WHAT", You see. It doesn't work. "Speed and fequency" are only considered because we think time is something. There is no such thing as "speed", its a standard of measure. There is no such thing as "frequency", you're specifically talking about SOMETHING ELSE doing an "action" at specific intervals. "Speed and frequency" are purely descriptions.

Does not explain to me how the fucking car works or what a "mph" or even what "60" is.

Explains how the car works without using "speed" or frequency.

>"A distance is not a force or a field, so it doesn't exist either".
No it isn't. Distance is another description that doesn't really mean anything when you consider that the only thing that gives the illusion of "distance" is the SHIT INBETWEEN THE "DISTANCE". I suppose in your mind "distance" is what causes a static shock too right?

>There is also a Gauss law for the Magnetic field, your dense illiterate. And it says there are no magnetic monopoles. But you have "mass monopoles", and only positive ones.

You're basically saying a language is a phenomena with properties that acts upon something. Technically this is true, but only to the degree that we let ourselves be wavered by the language. It would only happen NON PHYSICALLY and synthesized instantaneously.

That test wasn't about time, it was about the bending of moving charges, which is distinctly different between magnetic and gravitational phenomena.

Yeah, a measurement is a comparison, no shit. It doesn't matter one tiny bit whether you consider time as a thing on its own or as a comparison of the evolution of systems. Both can be measured in seconds, and these measurements can be compared to nonrelativistic models vs relativistic models, and the relativistic are far more accurate.

Because one is COHERENT and the other ISN'T. How distinctly different are they? Are they still doing the same thing? ("bending")
It's like saying that the blue spectrum of light is a completely different thing then the red. It's still fucking "light it's just a different form.

And measurements are not real. They are concepts. Time is a measurement, therefore has no basis in reality.

>It doesn't matter one tiny bit whether you consider time as a thing on its own or as a comparison of the evolution of systems.
It actually does matter. There's this thing called "cause and effect" and it's not a distinction without a difference.

>Both can be measured in seconds, and these measurements can be compared to nonrelativistic models vs relativistic models, and the relativistic are far more accurate.

Lol, but once again you still don't even know what you're measuring. You're basically trying to convince me that a certain standard of measure is better when it comes to measuring a shadow. So tell me the cause of gravity (and/or) magnetism or distinguish WHAT THEY ACTUALLY ARE AND DO without the use of measurements. Should be pretty simple to do if you ask me.

Despite your insisting that it doesn't have properties, it does. The metric is a property. The Riemann tensor is a property.

>So tell me the cause of gravity (and/or) magnetism or distinguish WHAT THEY ACTUALLY ARE AND DO without the use of measurements.
You're obviously not going to accept this explanation but I'll give it anyway. Mass and energy affect geometry. This alteration of geometry produces all the effects we call gravitational. Magnetism is caused by moving charges, and is mediated by the electromagnetic field.

Any argument you make about gravity being magnetic can be defeated by dropping a bunch of different magnets and materials, of different sizes and strengths, and seeing that they all accelerate precisely the same way.

Not according to plastic injection molding. Matter is a conjugate of form, not a dictator. Energy is just a difference in potential.

>This alteration of geometry produces all the effects we call gravitational.
..as well as magnetic..The only difference between a magnet and an unmagnetized piece of the same material is obviously an alteration of that material. It is induced by electricity. So basically this still doesn't differentiate it from magnetism.
Magnetism is caused by moving charges, and is mediated by the electromagnetic field.
A regular magnet? With no electricity running in it that is.

>I don't understand what you mean by property.
"Hot", "cold" ,"Wet", "dry", "large", "small", a feature. Those are properties and they are exhibited by things that exist in reality. The qualitative. What qualities does "space" have? What "features" does it exhibit? It's an attribute of something else that has properties. A privation, not a thing. It's like saying a "shadow" is real and has properties. Shadows aren't real and they're the absence of something that has properties (illumination).

Example:
>air gets heated, air expands
The "air" is "heated" which results in expansion of the exact same fucking thing being heated. "The air" and "heat" are not a force. The air is matter and the properties it has are "heat". Introduce other qualities such as "cold" and you alter the air. It will contract. You have altered something that exists with the properties that it exhibits and what it doesn't exhibit (propertiesobtained from something else perhaps).

Now equate this to "Space" and "time". You can't do it because "time" is not a property of anything and "space" has no properties. The "space" is fucking filled. It's EM and hydrogen molecules, motion, the things that have the actual properties that are anything but "space". What is "space" even describing in your context? The distance between arbitrary point and other arbitrary point? That doesn't mean anything other than what you want it to mean.

>Special relativity describes how spacetime works and its predictions can and have been tested.
Descriptions are not explanations.

>You seem to be completely ignoring everything said about it and then saying there is nothing describing it and it doesn't exist.
Because it doesn't! You're using math as proof when you don't even know what you're trying to prove. You're reifying something that has no existence and you don't even understand why because "the math tells you otherwise".

But energy is specifically caused by a change in something. You can't "place" energy, you move it from where it is to where it isn't. Even the law of thermodynamics disagrees with this explanation.

Explanation of gravity and spacetime? There isn't one that isn't a a pile of fallacies stacked on top of another.

>What does your description of air explain?
It was to explain to you what a "property" is. You asked, or at least the person i was replying to asked. A "property" basically requires something to "posses" that property. "Space" doesn't "posses" anything, it's just a medium. Full of atomic interactions/em, motion. It's not quantifiable "As something".


>Too bad all experiments prove it does.
There is no experiment on earth, nor will ever be one that can reify an absence. It is absolutely impossible. So "no u".

It's the difference in strength that causes gravity to begin with. You can't have just "one" body. It's two bodies AND their center masses creating the differential/"tidal" force. That makes it inverse cube to the distance. The force is not equal among the parts facing away/towards to objects"gravitating" towards each other.
Calculating it from the center assumes that it's specifically the center that's causing the gravity. It's not. It's all the mass on all parts of the earth in motion.

Why does it matter that it was moved from somewhere else? Are you capable of getting out of baseless semantic arguments and actually presenting some substance?

>Explanation of gravity and spacetime?
What about gravity and spacetime? It certainly explains how they behave. You are just going to keep asking "why?" for every explanation given to you and then declare victory once we reach the limit of our present understanding, which shows nothing since the same "argument" can be applied to anything.

>It was to explain to you what a "property" is.
So it's a "description, not an explanation." If you are happy with your description of properties of air, you should be happy with my description of properties of space. If not, then explain air.

>There is no experiment on earth, nor will ever be one that can reify an absence.
There is nothing you can say that will make these experiments go away. Keep repeating "reify," it really makes you seem sane.

Couldn't have said better myself. "Space" is "not a specific thing" you can point to that has properties. "It is not a specific thing" doesn't translate to "it is something", It doesn't exist, it's the steadfast of the medium reacting upon itself, there's no "space" whatsoever. You can point to "air" as a "specific thing" because you can compare it to something else and see the difference. How do you do this with "Space"? It's an incommensurately medium, it is "filled" , there is no "space" anywhere!

>It's as real as temperature.
a measurement of the qualities "hot" and "cold". So you're right, since it's a measurement it also doesn't exist. "Hot" and "cold" still do because they're at least empirical and can be "felt".

>If you replace the word "space" with "air" you get an equally (in)coherent sentence, because you're a mentally ill hypocrite spouting nonsense.
Okay, how about we just replace the word "space" with "filled" since "filled" is a better description. Or we can just use "space" because that's the common word used for "the atmosphere past earths", and admit that it's not to be taken "as something specific" or "emptiness". It's a medium of something NOT SPECIFIC.

>Answer the question asshat. How does energy having to be moved from somewhere else matter vis a vis the fact that energy causes spacetime to curve? I bet this question will never be answered because there is no logic behind your responses, just words strung together.

You claim yet again that an absence is something. This is the problem we're having here. This is where the confusion is. It is ABSENT. INDETERMINABLE.

Because it's so simple to understand once you provide a comparison. Also it doesn't get through the thick skulls of people that actually believe its real. It is literally a measurement of something that is real.

Technically "time" isn't even that. It's a measurement of the actions of something that is real...something that doesn't even have a "concreteness" to it. Telling me two balls rotate around each other at a specific speed over a period of this arbitrary measurement of an action doesn't tell me jack shit about what the "balls" are or why they're rotating. All it does is describe to me just that. 2 balls rotating around each other, only now we've included this arbitrary standard of measure. You're still describing it. You haven't told me why they're rotating or why they exist or even if they exist.

It's useful for reproducing and recording though. That is what measurements are for.

What differentiates the concept of ether and that of a basic medium through which energy/mass interact is that you could "capture" an ether or drain it completely from one place into another.

That is not to say that I'm surprised that you are yet again incapable of distinguishing two things from one another simply because they are slightly similar.

No, the problem is that multiple people have explained this to you multiple times, and you refuse to listen. You've made a baseless, contrarian assumption because it makes you feel superior to others. That is not science.

Only in the sense that it is not as warm as other things. It does not possess some magical "cold" energy. Unlike space and time, that actually doesn't exist.

Another what? Property? We have measured and observed a change in the quality of spacetime many, many times by describing with our equations the differing levels of curvature and density required in different areas to produce certain effects and then verifying those results with reality. Why do you deny that this has been done when so many groups have done so many times?

And yet our senses were only gifted to us through natural selection to help us survive on this planet, not to help us understand the universe as a whole. You cannot expect to sense all useful information with just your eyes, ears, etc. There are plenty of properties of the universe that we cannot sense, yet we know exist through our scientific and mathematical efforts.

Are you seriously claiming that there are no tools that provide us with information that our senses can't perceive on their own?

Then it would be an insane stroke of coincidence that all of the math still works out to what we see in reality. If a theory has true predictive power, then it's as real as real gets.

Non-schizos can understand that the word "space" can have two different meanings given two different contexts. If you say, "Hey, move the couch into that space over there", you're using "space" in a way that means "empty area". If you say, "Hey, look at the way the spacetime in that area of our galaxy is warped; we can learn something from that", then you're using "space" in the context of the scientific term "spacetime". I actually think you're missing some part of your brain that would allow you to understand this parallel.

The means of which it does so is not "distance" though, it's density.

It exists as a concept BECAUSE it has a basis in reality. If it didn't, the concept would be useless and would never have lasted memetically in human culture, and it for god damn sure wouldn't have been selected for intuitive understanding in, at the very least, the human mind, evolutionarily.

You can call it that if you want.

You're absolutely obsessed with trying to split the tiniest of semantic hairs, evidenced by the fact that you've been doing this shit for months, if not years now. The progression of the universe towards maximum entropy can be curved and more or less dense in some areas compared to others. Normal people call this progression "time" because it's a lot fucking shorter to type, but you have to be a pedant so here you go. The progression of the universe towards maximum entropy empirically exists as evidenced by probably tens of thousands of peer-reviewed studies. You can't debate that, and so you can't debate that time, in the way that I've described it (which is the way any physicist would describe it if pressed in this ludicrous fashion), exists and measurements can be made concerning its density and curvature.

Nope. I stated the fact that the concept of distance is intuitive to the human species. I then drew the conclusion that this is so for a reason, as natural selection wouldn't program such a complex trait for shits and giggles.

You or someone I replied to called it an "interaction". It is not, it causes nothing to happen.

>I don't even know why I'm typing this out

Me neither, it doesn't make a point about distance actually being real. This is why we concluded thousands of years ago that pure observation and empirical evidence aren't the solution to everything. It's an illusion of light interacting with other light on a surface that's spinning.

Follow what I say maybe. Distance is a measurement and measurements are not things with a basis in reality. They are concepts, ideas. In this case it's describing reality. Descriptions are not actually reality. Get it through dude. Distance is *as real* as unicorns. It is an imaginary conjured up idea so yes AS AN IDEA IT IS "REAL" , BUT NOT ACTUALLY REAL IN THE REALITY YO"U AND I ARE IN.

You or someone I replied to called it an "interaction". It is not, it causes nothing to happen.

Me neither, it doesn't make a point about distance actually being real. This is why we concluded thousands of years ago that pure observation and empirical evidence aren't the solution to everything. It's an illusion of light interacting with other light on a surface that's spinning. Take away the spinning, the medium, and light and it's gonna be pretty fucking hard to conjure up the idea of "Distance".

Look I'm not arguing whether or not "distance" can be measured, I'm arguing that the distance is absolutely irrelevant considering that everything works as one singular thing to begin with. A medium. There is no "points between a singular thing", "it is" one thing. "What it does" is an action, "distance" is irrelevant. There is no distance.

Logically tell me the difference between light and illumination (what light does). You can't do it because it doesn't even fucking exist unless there is an action/disparity to create a difference (aka "make waves").

>What is motion?
Certainly not fucking "distance" "time" or "Space". A change in something observed compared to what is observed not to be (it's surroundings). In the end it's qualities turning into other new qualities so I suppose "qualities of motion" was the incorrect way to phrase it.

All standards of measure are arbitrary, this had nothing to do with what's being measured, which must exist for you to measure it. There's literally no logic behind anything you say, just platitudes.

The universe is one singular thing, and it contains many different things separated by space and time. There is no conflict between these two facts. Again where is your logic? Don't give me more esoteric poetry.

>Logically tell me the difference between light and illumination (what light does).
Light is electromagnetic radiation. Illumination is an effect of light with respect to visualizing something. For example when you illuminate an object this allows your brain to receive an image of that object, which is not the same as the object itself. If your brain recieved the object itself, you would die from blunt force trauma. Try it if you don't believe me.

>A change A change in something observed compared to what is observed not to be (it's surroundings).
What is a change? A change is when the object is one way at one point in time and then another way in another point in time. Without time, there can be no change as there is nothing to separate the states. Motion specifically is a change in position in space over time.

The truth is consistently hidden from us. Did you know that the famous g in F=mg is basically the gravitational field but somehow it is rarely mentioned for the sake of dumbing down the famous formula for the masses? Think about it, when we talk about the Coulomb law, both the F and E are introduced simultaneously and one is expressed via the other. So you immediately know that the Electric field E is like a one hand clap E=kq/r^2, basically a place holder and you need the second point charge q2 to get the expression for the force F=qE or kq1q2/r^2. But guess what, it is exact same concept for gravity, except most of the time the expression for the force is given in the final form, i.e F=mg or F=Gm1m2/R^2. And that's why people confuse g and G. They think the g is somehow a special constant but that's because unlike the Electric field for an arbitrary charge, F=mg is given strictly in the context of the Earth so the G and R are already plugged in so you have a constant g even though the constant there is the capital G. And what is the lower case g? Well it is the gravitational field which is completely analogous to the electric field as you can see from the corresponding formula. But the g is called "the acceleration due to gravity". Ridiculous. Discuss.

Well you haven't proved so! You yourself said a clock "measures time" so already you've admitted it's a measurement.

Seeing something be different at different times does indeed prove time exists. You lose again. There is bo way for you to get around the fact that change requires time for you to exist.

>Which makes no sense since we are taking about the distance between the objects.
Okay you can "measure " them. Which again has nothing to do with what they are nor how they work.

>What medium?
Well it's not "nothing" is it? Something "fills" what you call space.

>>10784877
If it's one "singular" thing and contains many "different" things, where does the difference come from? They would be similar to each other.

>Every time you lie about what I say you lose the argument.
"Position in space and time are properties"

It's like saying that moving my table to the corner of the room gives it a different property. It can't be used to it's full potential, but it certainly hasn't been given a new property, it's stil la fucking table. Only "space" and "time" aren't real places to have a "position" in. You're just parroting nonsense at this point.

>Seeing something be different at different times does indeed prove time exists
>Compressing an air tank and watching the pressure equalize in an atmosphere of the same composition requires "time" to equalize the pressure.

Moron, don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. That's what losers do by the way. They run away.

You shouldn't try to explain the concepts correctly to people like >>10784922 because they will always find there own way to work around the facts. These people are generally antisocial and have spent a long time manifesting there ideas so they feel as though the time they have spent thinking has shown them a proper view of how things are. Instead of telling them how things are have them explain there point of view and show to them how they may be wrong. You shouldn't force them to begin thinking rationally, that is a choice they have to come up with on there own. Some people have fallen to far to come around, and arguing with them like this is only going to want to fight for their beliefs more.

"I am so incredibly mad that this immense asshole tried to give me dozens of chances to prove that my descriptions were no different than a pentagram-candle-on-the-floor drawing geomancing alchemist and I couldn't even do it. I couldn't give him one property of space or time so now I'm going to tell everyone on an anonymous image board to not take him seriously so that maybe he won't talk about it being a medium."

Yeah you go do that, gas lighting doesn't really work on sites like this.

"We may say that according to the general theory of relativity space is endowed with physical qualities; in this sense, therefore, there exists an Aether. According to the general theory of relativity space without Aether is unthinkable; for in such space there not only would be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time, nor therefore any space-time intervals in the physical sense. But this Aether may not be thought of as endowed with the quality characteristic of ponderable media, as consisting of parts which may be tracked through time. The idea of motion may not be applied to it."- Albert Einstein

Except multiple people have given you multiple properties of both in this thread alone, not to count the thousands of other threads you've shat up with this garbage. You just don't listen because you know that it would completely shatter your dumbass worldview. Also, it's hilarious that you liken spacetime to alchemy when you literally believe in magic ether.

Is closeness a property? If my computer is closer to me than my car then I can say that the area between me and my computer is slightly smaller than the area between me and my car. If I said this would I be making any false claims in your world view? Explain what you believe is to true so that I could get a better understanding of your world view.

It's the difference in speed of time. The more gravity, the faster time goes, the more time you have to exert force on something,

When you walk on a flat surface, you have more time to move your feet than your head. If you relax your muscles, you fall down, since it's the path of least resistance - towards where time is moving faster..


gravity isn't a thing, it's all just time.

>Is closeness a property?

Not really. "Closeness" is not a property that anything can really "posses", for how does one posses "closeness"? It's not really a quality, more so a measurement like distance. You could fill the grey area by saying that the objects "need" or "are reliant" on others, but that doesn't mean they have to be "close" to another. Bringing an ice cube "closer" to a hot source isn't giving the ice cube the property of "being close" or "having less distance", it's whatever that is hot exhibiting the properties of "hotness" interacting with the properties of cold. That effect is graduated (immeasurably mind you) by what is inbetween the two, or "other stuff with other properties" (such as air). All you're doing is effectively removing the resistance(the air) out of the way by making the icecube react less with it and more with whatever is "hot". Or the qualities of the hot item is impelling the air to move which in turn impels the ice to move and melt. That can certainly be measure as "distance" or "closeness", but that doesn't mean distance or closeness is the cause of your measurement. You could blow the hot air emitted to the ice cube without moving the ice or whatever is emitting the hotness.
A better understanding is that "place" doesn't matter, only what is "displaced". You can call it "traveling and distance" if you want, but all that's occurred is a displacement of what was already there and still technically "there". Has more to do with density than anything else. Will a boat have traveled further on the same amount of fuel if the front had been pointed as opposed to flat? Yes? Because of the qualities it possessed, which wasn't "distance" at all. It altered the recorded result of distance/time in traveled with something that was not distance nor time (the pointed boat hull). Furthermore the boat itself runs on the qualities of "pressure" resultant from a "hot and cold" medium, at least if it's driven by a gasoline engine.
