# How can gravity slow down time?

So, don’t think it would be explained in a few words what many people study for years and never understand, but believe in it all the more and how a collective Einstein Inquisition proceeds against every unbeliever with absolute ignorance – that is, a co-thinking to forbid.

First of all, and again and again: time cannot slowdown, because it is not a thing that moves, because it is the cause of an effect that we call movement.And movement is a change of position in space and the distance of the past position to the present, which we call track. And the route is now the substantial proxy of the time – but also the route can not read faster (read more).But since the nature of things has a mechanism that keeps the speed of light constant, nothing can really slow down or faster (read more)(and read more).

Now, however, we see that the clock shows concretely different times in a comparison and this circumstance should find a plausible explanation and not simply be sunk into the occult abysses of time.Nor has Einstein proved that time is stretching, but he has proved that the comparative clocks indicate differences, although the stretching of time is a basis for his interpretation, but is not factually unquestionable proof. Especially not if an unquestionable alternative interpretation is possible, which describes the real process more plausibly without contradiction.

The reason for the time difference is that the distances can be shorter if you observe the process of moving point by point.And the false spatial conceptions associate an expectation that does not causally fulfill the nature of things and thus refuses plausibility. If this expectation is corrected, the problem is solved. Because the distances are curved, the distances are reduced and you call this gravity. But the movement, considered a process, as a red arrow, moves point by point along a one-dimensional route through the topography of space. The movement constantly bridges the most diverse curvatures of space, however small.

This effect is understood by lovers of stretching time as time dilation.

But you can also understand and draw it this way:

Or so:

Or as I understand it, as a bridge over the occult valley of time:

What is a bridge over the troubled time?

I hope that some readers now understand that it takes less time to bridge the route, because there are no false expectations in such an idea of the spatial effect, where then the clocks will compare in amazement.

And everything can also happen at the speed of light, without which the beams of the bridge bend (read more).

You spend less time understanding it when you walk over the donkey bridge that I just built for you.But you can also go the long hard way of the standard model of physics, then you will thus bridge the topography of the vanities of science, but never arrive at the goal that science actually pursues with it.
