Default Re: What is TIME exactly?

A lot of people get confused by magnetism. There are many so called perpetual motion machines for example, that utilize magnets but that in actuality are deriving the energy by depleting the magnets themselves. This is all fin and dandy if you happen to sit on a rare earth magnet mine, but it isnt perpetual motion.

Now, one problem I have with this is that we already generate magnetic fields many, many times stronger than anything his little machine would be capable of, and we do not notice any time dilation effects with them. Also, gravity is a force completely independent of magnetism, so no, it is not the force that causes the earths spin or revolution about the sun.
