Your Head is Older Then your Feat, The Clock Conundrum

time clocks

It is a little known fact that clocks, and time in general, runs more slowly in a strong gravitational field than they do in a week gravitational field. The simple explanation of why this happens is that strong gravitational fields shrink the space of an area. Time and space are intricately linked, and so when space shrinks, time does too, or in other words, time goes slower.

This wasn’t discovered until the twentieth century because it doesn’t affect our daily lives on earth in a very significant way. It is only when you start talking about very precise measurements, very large and massive objects, or very, very small subatomic particles.

One of the consequences of the fact that time moves slower the closer it is to a strong gravitational field, is that clocks run slower when they are close to the earth, and run faster when they are further away. The earth is a giant mass, and it creates a gravitational field that is stronger the closer you get to it.

Consequently, the average human spends most of their day with their head, further away from the earth than their feat. Even when they lie down the two are only on an even pace with one another, and very rarely do humans hang upside down with their heads closer to the earth then their toes.

This means that the average persons head is older than their feat.

This is only a very slight difference, the kind one would never notice if we didn’t have theoretical physics which says it is true and precise instruments to measure it. However it is absolutely true, and can be verified if you are willing to subject your body to experimentation.

This also means that people who live on top of mountains age faster than those who live in caves, or lowland swamp areas. Even spending a few hours up in a tall office building or a tower can alter your age, compared to everyone else’s, by at least a little.
