Could Time Stop Completely? Scientists Predict There Will be an End to Time
June 21, 2012 1 Comment
New research by scientists in Spain suggests that rather than the universe expanding, as is widely believed, time is gradually slowing down, and will eventually completely stop altogether. Scientists have used measurements of light from exploding stars millions of miles from Earth to show the universe expanding. The latest research has revealed that this has been looked at all backwards.
“Observations of supernovae, or exploding stars, found the movement of light indicating that they were moving faster than those nearer to the center of the universe and appeared to be spreading continuously and accelerating. Scientist claimed the accepted theory of an opposite force to gravity, known as dark energy, was wrong, and said the reality was that the growth of the universe was slowing.”
What the slowing down of time will eventually mean is that everything will appear to take place faster and faster until it eventually disappears. For humans, it is imperceptible to notice the deceleration of time because it is so gradual. Supposedly everything will be “frozen like a snapshot of one instant, forever.” Seems a little absurd, but these scientists figure that if can emerge from an event such as the Big Bang, could the exact opposite take effect eventually?
Hopefully not in our time.
If anything, this seems to explain why everything in our culture has become much faster and more technologically advanced. Are we trying to keep up with “less hours” in each day if time is really slowing down. Most of us complain about there not being enough hours in the day already. I think some are actually taking advantage of our new technological reality to make time seem abundant, efficient, and resourceful. It is all about how you use your time, but just know one day that time will come to a complete halt, and there is nothing we can do about it. On to the next Big Bang.
