Video Description

Professor Brian Cox gave an excellent lecture of the science of Dr Who, The world famous BBC Time Travel Sci-Fi series. In his lecture professor Cox explained how current interpretations of Einstein’s Relativity suggest time travel may make sense. However a careful check of the actual contents of "on the electrodynamics of moving bodies" shows that Einstein in no way proved at all that there is a thing called time that "clocks" measure - but instead only "assumed" time exists, and termed Relativity as if time existed. Most scientists seem to assume relativity proves "time" dilation, and thus that time exists, and that space and time may be combined. But without any actual proof of a past, a future, and/or time, Relativity may possibly be seen as showing only that matter may exist, move, and change at "dilated" "rates"... not over a thing called "time" but just where it is, and if it is moving relative to an observer. This interpretation is examined fully in my "Time Travel, Timeless Answers to Prof Brian Cox's Science of Dr WHO", and alternative (possible) understandings, interpretations, and solutions to the ideas and paradoxes professor Cox suggests are progressively explained. Resulting in an interpretation of Relativity that (imo) may resolve all of the issues the professor raises, but does not rely at all on the existence of unnecessary, unseen, and unproven “phenomena” such as “the past”, “the future”, and “time” itself. (Matthew Marsden, auth “A Brief History of Timelessness”)

Video Creator Bio

Matthew Marsden is a profession stand up (Matt Welcome)and also a science geek and the author of “A Brief History of Timelessness”. His investigation rigorously examines the possibility that perhaps matter "just" existing, moving, interacting and transforming (as directly observed), may be enough to mislead us into wrongly assuming that a "past", or "future" may exist, and thus that a thing called "time" may exist. Examining this possibility thoroughly leads to a simpler interpretation of Relativity, that holds true the core of the work, while not relying on unproven assumptions.

hi matt

hi matt i think timelessness is the same as eternity and thats what the universe is.our perception is just a geometric illusion conjured by our brains which are virtual simulators,hence life itself may just be a simulation,hence time travel is a reality .Please take time to please vote for my video here- http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2223.meanwhile i just voted for yours.thanks.All the best

ps , to see why i think relativity i.e “on the electrodynamics of moving bodies", seems to “assume” but in no way prove the existence of a thing called time.

Your video is very interesting, and I loved it!

My video is A universe in a cup of water, I hope you will like it too.

I wish you success!
