The Time Dilation Radiator
Time slows down for objects in motion. While this effect is not noticeable in everyday experience, it becomes apparent at speeds approaching the speed of light.
The theory of relativity is used to account for observations from different perspectives. For example, objects appear to be smaller when they are viewed from a distance. Additionally, motion is relative to the perspective of the observer, as objects in a car appear to be still from the perspective of within the car.
What about time? Is time an absolute value? Or does time change depending on how we look at it? In other words, is a second the same for every observer, regardless of their perspective? Well, as it turns out, the answer to this question is no.
Time Dilation is Relative
It is important to note that time dilation is relative to the perspective of the observer. In other words, if you were to travel in the spaceship with the clock, you would notice no time dilation. Everything would seem normal to you. From your perspective, the beams of light would be traveling back and forth between the mirrors just as if you were sitting still.
However, from a stationary perspective, time slows down. In other words, only the stationary observer observes time dilation in the moving ship. For a person affected by a magical time dilation radiator, the perception of time changes without the need to move. Your clocks may move normally, but as the effect of the radiator grows, you will feel as though time is moving more slowly for you. This is my secret to getting more things done in less time. Simply focus on the time dilation radiator for five minutes before you begin working. Look at it every once in a while during the day. Over time, if you allow it, you will see a difference. I share one of my most cherished secrets with you in this radiator.
