350 Year Old Question About Time Has Been Answered


A seemingly basic scientific question has stumped scientists for over three centuries…until now.  A very strange phenomenon that happens when more than one pendulum clocks are in the same vicinity is the mystery.  You would not intuitively think was very difficult to figure out.

There is a new study in the journal Scientific Reports has proposed a solution: the pendulums transfer energy to one another through sound pulses.

Apparently, the new theory if correct could apply to electronic oscillators which are used in the synchronizing of microchips, and studying the properties of many other devices beyond only clocks. As expected, they proved their theory in this way:

A pair of Portuguese scientists hypothesised that these pulses might move from clock to clock, perturbing the swing of the pendulums and eventually causing them to synchronise.

Let’s find out more on this phenomenon and check out a video of a DIY pendulum clock on page 2

    Yea, so it’s early in he morning here, about to have my second cup of coffee… I have to go to work but I feel like I can clear up some of this confusion about time and base 60 wave oscillations and their effects in a relative domain If I had more time. The byproduct might just be more confusion after reading this But nothing ventured ‘… I think the proposition above is correct about the sound but incorrect as the cause and effect. In short, all points of space are equal distance from the processor*** and gravity is merely what streaming data is to quantized data as a continuous flow*. Start there and see if you can figure out the whys… Harmonic sympathy and interference patterns are the “harmonic residence” you speak of and everything we know is a product of cymatic photonics to put it broadly. The incoming waves have a very universal speed that I call the Planck’s duration. It’s just a duration of a Planck size wave pattern in base 60 mathematics. Hint, the focal nodes are the same for all wave oscillations with fixed ends. I have combined my knowledge of music,physics,geometry,theology,science,and myth. Just friend me if you want to keep hearing crap like this, I can’t seem to stop. 🙂

    I feel like they never say what the question actually is. From what it says you have to figure out that for some reason to pendulum clocks near each other eventually fall in rhythm together.

    I used to have a similar opinion, but it’s not that time doesn’t exist, it’s just subjective, as proved by Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Your past, present, and future, or some variation thereof definitely exists.

    That’s an interesting hypotheses. Now prove it or come up with a set of predictions that if proven true will support it.

    I have already, in my own mind, but would rather like you to make up your own mind as well. Pushing opinions is a slippery slope however I will attempt to answer any questions as to how I am assuming such things. I assure you that my chain of thought is of a skeptic which makes the fact that I’m saying any if this a unlikely event perhaps even paradoxical. I’m not that smart to begin with but when the puzzle pieces fit so nicely my doubt is greatly reduced. I do have many predictions and don’t know where to begin exactly….

    VIBRATION – same principle used by Qi Gong masters to break several pieces of 1 inch tiles with ease. Strength is not the deciding factor – precise speed and momentum. Too hard a punch would dispersed the energy – too soft the punch would not break all the tiles.
