Time for another #brainfart !
I hope there are some mathematicians and/or theoretical physicists among you who read this because I think you could help.

I've been playing with this idea in my mind for a while but I feel like I gotta put it down in writing and get some input on this, so here goes:

GRAVITY

Okay so you know how there's this whole mathematical chapter in Physics about electricity and how you can mathematically calculate the force on a particle as a function of its mass and its distance from an electric field, right?
I think it's:
q*m/r^2 = Force
Where
q = electric charge
m = mass
r = distance (radius) from another electric charge
So, in essence, the closer two electric charges are to each other, the greater the forces working on the particles between them, and the faster the particles are moving,... more »

So, in essence, the closer two electric charges are to each other, the greater the forces working on the particles between them, and the faster the particles are moving, yeah?

Anyways, I think that Gravity is like the same concept, but opposite!

Okay so you know about Time Dilation which is affected by gravity, right?
(if you know what it is you can skip the next paragraph)
The closer you are to a huge source of gravity, the faster you seem to perceive time exerted on objects further from the same source of gravity. For example, we put an atomic watch on Earth and another on a satellite orbiting Earth from far away and synchronize them. When the watch on Earth perceives that 100 years have passed, the watch on the satellite orbiting far away actually perceived that about 95 years have passed. These are of course rough figures and not at all accurate, but it's not important. It's just so you get the idea.

So why does this actually happen?
Sure, there are plenty of explanations about this having to do with the theory of relativity and the max speed of light being a constant but "time" is not and bla bla bla. But all this is just describing the effect, it doesn't explain why it happens.

So here's what I think:
Time, as a force, constant or otherwise, doesn't exist. It doesn't "speed up" or "slow down" or anything like that.
The speed of time doesn't affect speed.
It's actually the other way around:
Speed affects our perception of time.
"Time" is simply our perception of the speed of the world around us.
Wait, wait, I didn't finish yet so bear with me here!

Let's look over the facts, alright? Here's what we know:

1. Time goes by faster for objects which are closer to a source of gravity. Let's call these objects "Heavy objects".
2. Time goes by slower for objects which are further from a source of gravity. Let's call these objects "Light objects".
3. Time goes by faster for objects which are moving slower. Let's call these objects "Slow objects".
4. Time goes by slower for objects which are moving faster. Let's call these objects "Fast objects".

When in fact:
1. Heavy objects perceive Light objects to be moving faster than themselves.
2. Light objects perceive Heavy objects to be moving slower than themselves.
3. Slow objects perceive Fast objects to be moving faster than themselves (duh).
4. I think you can guess this one.

Now, remember what I said in the beginning about electricity?
Let's apply it here like this:
Gravity is a NEGATIVE force field which SLOWS OBJECTS DOWN the closer the objects are to the source of gravity (or "deeper inside the gravity field" if you wanna call it that).
So, in the sense of force fields and speeds, it's the opposite of electricity (where objects are SPED UP the closer they are to an electrical charge).

Now, this Gravitational Force Field affects EVERYTHING. EVEN LIGHT ITSELF (this is a known fact). But what does it actually affect? It affects the SPEED of the object... NEGATIVELY (i.e. the weaker the gravity the faster the object goes - the lighter the object, the faster it is).

So, when the atomic watch which orbits around the Earth perceives time going by slower (by observing the watch back on Earth), what actually happens is that since there are weaker gravitational forces working on the watch in space (it's LIGHTER), that's why it moves FASTER. It's mechanical parts move faster. Its electrical circuits move faster. Every atom around it moves faster. Even the light around it moves faster. As such, the dials on this watch move faster as well. The orbital watch perceives time (on Earth) going slower because IT (the watch itself) IS GOING FASTER.

Let's imagine another scenario, this time a scenario of an atomic watch falling towards a massive black hole while looking the opposite direction (outside).
The closer the watch gets to the black hole, the faster it seems that the universe outside is moving.
However, for us, the observers from outside, it seems that as the watch falls closer and closer into the black hole, its falling speed slows down.
Until it reaches the event horizon and it looks to us as if the watch almost stops.
While for the watch itself, it looks as if the universe outside is speeding up into an incoherent blur because it's moving so fast. The watch is witnessing entire galaxies form and die so fast that it looks like a whirlpool of shiny rain until the universe finally DIES. In a matter of what seemed like mere moments, the watch became essentially immortal to live to see the end of the universe. All because it has experienced absolute gravity and therefore moved slower (and therefore its "perception" slowed down).

Now, let's consider an opposite scenario:
An atomic watch falls away from any source of gravity, deep, deep into faraway space of nothingness, while looking the opposite direction.
For this watch, as the rest of the universe flies away, it seems like the universe slows down. Galaxies move slower and slower and slower.
For us, the observers, staring towards the watch, it looks as if the further away from us the watch flies, the faster it goes. Its speed is INCREASING. It flies so far away, and speeds up so fast, until it looks to us like a shooting star disappearing into the distance (remember the warp speed scenes in Star Trek?).
For the watch, so far away from any source of gravity, it looks like the faraway universe is screeching into a halt. Until everything seems to stop and disappear into eternal darkness. All because practically no gravitational forces affect the watch, therefore it's moving faster and therefore its "perception" is sped up.

Objects speeding up the further they are from us?
Does this sound familiar yet?

DARK ENERGY!

The mysterious energy that seemingly propels galaxies away from each other???
There's no such thing!
It's all... Just.... Gravity!
Gravity! Working as a NEGATIVE FORCE that affects SPEED, and through that - the perception of time!

Okay so that was it with my brainfart for today (and probably for the rest of the year, lol).
What do you think?

Really, folk. They're not audio-animatronics. They're not Disney cast members. They are armed guards in heavy, uncomfortable uniforms, powered by discipline and duty and drill, following a long line of tradition.

Disrespecting them is tacky. Screwing around with them to the point of interfering with their activities is seriously contra-indicated.

Racial Stereotypes, Machine Learning, and Facial Recognition

Ouch!  It appears that, for the second time in far too short a time, a photo app designed to use AI to label people and things has systematically mistaken black people for gorillas.  I wish I could say this was satire, or even a cruel joke, but it isn't.

While +Yonatan Zunger is right to say this is absolutely NOT OK, I believe that, to leave it at that, as an 'oopsie', would be to overlook a frightening possibility: that such mistakes are not coincidences that just happen to sound like racial stereotypes.

In other words, these AI's may be able to teach us about the same sorts of perceptual errors and biases in humans.  Note the eerie correspondences: black people mistaken for gorillas, a blink feature that thinks all Asian people are blinking, etc...  These don't just sound like our stereotypes: they are the same stereotypes.

Zunger's idea for a permanent solution, as well, points to the best remedy for these sorts of mistakes: to focus, not on differences (bigger or smaller lips, hips, eyes, etc...), but rather to focus on shared human features.  In no way, in reality, are blacks mistakable for gorillas or Asian eyes for blinking eyes...  unless one focuses entirely on the differences between people.  This, in reality, is how bigotry operates: by getting you to notice and exaggerate the differences, and ignore the commonalities.

Let us therefore not dismiss these things as 'bugs', but rather as potentially valuable insights into both the origin of stereotypes, and hopefully for a solution to these issues as well.___
