Anon explained it pretty basically with the graph, just wanted to add that from the SciFi movies I've seen, this one properly dealt with time dilation, relativity and such.
#83 - anon (11/20/2014) [-]
This is a very, very crude representation. Pretty much, as you can see on the graph, the lines are of a fixed length. You can't lengthen or shorten them, only rotate it about the origin. For a resting object, the line segment would be pointing straight up, traveling through time as fast as possible. But the second it starts to physically move, the segment rotates clockwise. The reason time goes slower near black holes and at the speed of light is because the objects are moving so fast through space that they are barely moving through time.

Read up on relativity. Read up on time dilation. Cool shit that actually happens in the universe
#29 - anon (11/20/2014) [-]
Basically as something gets closer to the speed of light time slows down for it. Haven't watched the movie but from what I can surmise the planet is orbiting a black hole and is moving incredibly fast. Someone on that planet is moving relatively faster than someone standing on Earth so time slows down relatively for them.

People on the space station are actually younger because of this. Astronauts were 0.007 seconds younger than people on Earth after 6 months orbiting.

I don't get it yet, I'll certainly come back to it tomorrow when I'm less pass out from lack of energy mode, but that's fucking fantastic to think about.. they are literally younger.. like, damn, that's insane. "They don't think it be like it is, but it do" -Black Science man.

The speed of Light (C) is a universal constant. The speed of light is literally ALWAYS the speed of light no matter your relative motion. For example, if your speed is 100,000 miles per hour, the speed of light is still exactly the same to you as it would be if you are moving at 0 miles per hour. Typically, you would add or subtract 100,000 miles per hour from the speed of an object to get its actual speed as it relates to your reference point.

Since everybody, no matter their reference point, in motion or not..... in a very powerful gravitation field or not (where space is stretched and light takes a longer time to pass through that space) the speed of light is ALWAYS a constant. Now since light still takes time to travel any distance (light travel of course is not instantaneous) BUT everybody agrees on the speed than light itself must be relative to SOMETHING. That something is what we perceive as Time. In a non moving reference point looking in at a high speed object, since you both perceive light the same way BUT light takes time to travel, Time is what ultimately bends. You would see their clock running slower from your reference even though from theirs, everything looks normal.

I don't even know what movie this is, but gravitational time dilation is an actual thing.

There is nothing that we know of that ISN'T affected by gravity, and this includes light and time.

And if you don't believe me, this isn't just theory, we have real world examples of gravitational time dilation. GPS satellites are slightly farther from earth's gravity than we are, and thus time from their reference point goes faster than by ours, so they need to take that into account when dealing with time. the difference isn't massive, but it's big enough to be a problem for GPS satelites.
#48 - derpyllama (11/20/2014) [-]
GPS satellites have to account for special relativity too since they're moving with respect to the Earth. I believe that they were the first engineering project that ever had to deal with both at the same time.

We know that the creation myth in the bible is false. We no that the 'floo' never happened. There's no evidence that Moses existed but his life is very similar to Akhenaten the pharaoh. All these people who supposedly talked to god never existed.

There is no evidence for any gods anywhere. They have been invented by man kind.
#114 - electricwulf (11/18/2014) [-]
I'm no science major but I defiantly know there was a period in which the Earth was covered in water, secondly I see the beauty around me as evidence I see wonders and glorious discoveries and complex systems, and I am to believe that the 'Big Bang' was just some random incident which happened to cause such things? Aain I vaule your opinion and I hope you value mine just the same.

#118 - popeflatus (11/18/2014) [-]
The Earth was never covered in water! Where did you get that from? If t was covered in water...where did it go? The big bang and evolution are not 'opinions' they are solid science. We know how simple things can gain complexity.

Show me proof of when the Earth was entirely covered in water.

#135 - popeflatus (11/18/2014) [-]
That's just a possible model. It may not have been that way. But even if it were, it was 2.5 billion years ago! There were no humans then, the only life was bacteria and algae essentially.

#157 - mapleknight (11/18/2014) [-]
Oh, so, if it was too early for us to actually physically observe..
Well, that just completely discredits the entire theory of Evolution?

#173 - popeflatus (11/18/2014) [-]
I didn't say that it was too early to observe, I said it is a model! Models can be shown to be wrong.
#144 - electricwulf (11/18/2014) [-]
Yeah and wasn't the World being round just a possible model of the Earth in the Years of Columbus? Fact is we as a species are just trying to find answers well the Past doesn't find Redemption or facts we should look to the Future and maybe the answers shall be found there.

#147 - popeflatus (11/18/2014) [-]
Humans have known the world was round since the Ancient Greeks measured its diameter. Columbus knew the world was round!

Back got me a Sexy as fuck copy of inquisition, your beliefs are your own please accept them however I must say that Eratosthenes idea was calculated thus a theory its not a matter of knowing its called a Hypothesis which turned out to be correct.
User avatar
#220 - popeflatus (11/18/2014) [-]
Columbus didn't come along until 1600 years after Eratosthenes and was well aware that the Earth was round. When a hypothesis is shown to be true it is then called a theory.
#148 - electricwulf (11/18/2014) [-]
Ancient Greeks you say? I love me some Greek History so rich and cultural, we'll finish this later I'm going to grab something.

I got all the info from the hey arnold wikia--there are links for both things under "relationships" for Helga and Arnold both--or you could search them on the wikia. Sadly there are only fanfiction comics, drawings, stories, and cartoons made by people all over the interwebs based on the facts/info given by the creator from interviews.
