First, clocks cannot measure any physical passage of time. This is factual and it must be recognized as such.
What do you mean by “physical passage of time”? If clocks don’t measure time, what do they measure? If they don’t measure anything, what do they do?
They do tic tic tic. They functional work is calibrasted to do tic tic tic and no more than that.
Check the anemometer. The anemometer has a sensor which detects the “physical passage of winds”. So, if the wind flows fast the anemometer will tell you how fast, if the wind slows its flowing the anemometer will inform you about the event. Anemometers won’t do tic tic tic as clocks do.
Now, show yourself an open clock and find the sensor which perceives the physical passage of time. If not any, then you must admit that clocks do not measure any physical passage of time.
What clocks do measure? Clocks indeed are devices which are used as the measurement -like the inch in a ruler- the clocks measure the interval of your motion from one place to another against the rotation’s cycle of the earth.
Second, there are several explanations which are more accurate but are not considered for review because they can hurt an established theory not because the explanations are false or erroneous.
Which ones? What data can you provide that these explanations are “more accurate” than relativity?
1) Atomic clocks malfunction in outer space or in any other new environment different to the one where they were calibrated.
a) The low gravity affects matter in general. Example, liquid metals which cannot be mixed on ground due to our gravity can be mixed in outer space. What now? Are they able to be mixed because their time around them has been distorted? Come on.
b) Relativists who performed the tests were looking for goverment grants to continue getting paid. Poor guys, their lives depend on their lies.
c) Changes of environment do directly affect bodies and energy and the idea of a flowing time -never been proved to exist physically- is no more than crap to the square.
d) Atomic clocks are affected by its moving parts which are the vibration frequency of the atom of Caesium exposed to different environment and the signals distorted by the presence of cosmic rays as an additional cause.
Atomic clocks are -in assumption - tested to changes in temperature but are not tested in low gravity. I can tell you this, you assemble the parts of the atomic clock in outer space and calibrate its functional work right there and the receiver which updates the errors from the current atomic clocks won’t be needed.
Or, you assemble the atomic clocks in outer space and their data will show errors if the clock is sent back to earth.
As long as clocks functional work is no more than tic tic tic such device is not the instrument which proves the physical existence of time, maybe in your dreams but not so in reality.
I asked you for the explanation of the mechanism which is in progress in a Muon when is exposed to high speeds in the accelerator. By the way, I’ll hope that you know what is a Muon. I guess that this is the main question which by answering it properly it discards the relativistic assumptions without questions. What is a Muon?
Take your time and please give the best answer about what is this particle. You will see that the assumptions made in base of Relativistic phenomena are 100% false just by finding out what is a Muon.
