What is your definition of time? I believe that in everyone's mind, the definition of time is different.
And time is invisible and intangible, belonging to an ethereal substance. Some scientists believe that time does not exist, it is only defined in the definition of "time", so in order to prove that time does not exist.
Scientists did an experiment, planning to let a woman live inside the cave full 210 days, in order to solve the mystery of time.
But the experiment was forced to terminate when it reached 130 days, so what exactly happened? What was the result of the experiment?
To prove that time does not exist, scientists have conducted an amazing experiment
Everyone's definition of time is different, and the great scientist Albert Einstein believed that time is actually an illusion, and that people only use the form of "tools".
And define it in this category, so time is actually a product of human autonomous consciousness and a cognitive illusion, and the reason why people can feel its flow is because of the existence of a reference, so the conclusion that time does not exist.
And this idea caught the attention of the NASA organization in the United States, so in order to prove the question of whether time exists
They have an experimental plan, that is, let an experimenter, into an underground cave, stay full 210 days, so as to argue whether time exists this problem.
Soon, under their "heavy" recruitment, there were 20 women to sign up, all wanting to become experimenters in this experiment, so they will be able to get a lot of money, so the temptation is great.
They chose only women, not men, in their choice of experimental subjects because they believed that women, compared to men
Since they have better patience, more attentiveness, and better resistance to stress, they are mainly recruiting female experimenters.
They selected 20 people, aged around 22-30 years old, and finally, after careful selection, they chose a person named "Stephanie. Follini" 27-year-old woman, as the subject of the experiment.
Stefania Forini Follini, an Italian interior designer, is more optimistic, more attentive and more mentally capable than other women, which is why they chose her.
After a careful selection process, they finally chose a place in Mexico State, USA.
There is a natural rock cavern located 30 meters underground. It is far from the surface and is 30 meters deep underground, with no sunlight visible and no sound, so it is definitely an excellent place for experiments.
Soon, the experimenters began to set up the experimental site, in which they built a small house that
Put the basic furniture as well as some living supplies, so here is basically food and drink do not have to worry, and the experimenter in what you want to do can be, even if the overall sleep, are no problem.
But here there is nothing about the time can be revealed, the experimenter is not able to go out, the sun does not come through.
So the experimenters could not discern the time by the outside world and clocks, whether it was day or night, which was exactly the effect they wanted.
Finally, there are some books for Stephanie Follini to spend her time. Follini's request, put in some books to help her spend time.
And there are also three cameras placed in this cave as a way to observe her, and Stephanie. Follini living in the cave, is unable to communicate directly with the outside world, only through the monitoring equipment to talk to the experimenters.
The experiment went exceptionally well
At the beginning, Follini was very excited and acted excitedly, and gave himself a well-defined schedule.
Planning what to do every day to make the time full, it can be seen that she is very confident in herself and believes that she will be able to complete this experiment perfectly.
During the first ten days she spent in the cave, she did, indeed, behave every day as if she had just come in when
She is well organized, reading, eating, exercising, sleeping, etc. She shows a lot of self-discipline.
Gradually the problem comes to the fore
At first Follini, in the cave performance is quite normal, but gradually there will be a change, the researchers soon found this change.
For example, when she first started, she slept for about 8 to 10 hours, and she also ate 2 to 3 meals in between each sleep.
But gradually, her sleep time became longer and longer, and the interval between sleep also became longer, some times even 20 hours to sleep once, when the experimenter asked her, but she replied that it did not feel so long after.
After 2 months had passed, her biological clock began to become disturbed, such as being awake for upwards of twenty hours
And more than ten hours of sleep at a time, the number of books to read is also less, the will also began to become depressed, the researchers saw this, can not help but be a little worried.
In order to better carry out the next experimental research, so the researchers gave her some new items, the guitar, and a computer (able to simply play some small games), as well as two pet mice.
With these things, she had even more to pass the time, and the experiment was going in a good direction again, but this good time did not last long, and the experimenters found that
Her biological clock has been completely messed up, some days she gets up after 2 hours of sleep, while other days she is even able to sleep for 2 whole days and says that it feels like she has slept for just a few hours, it is clear that she can no longer judge the time.
By the time she reached day 100, not only was she lighter, but her physiology was already in disarray, and in some cases
She could have her period several times a month, while some times she didn't have one, and even stopped at the end. She lost 17 kg of weight and became thinner and thinner.
The researchers sent her some more fresh food, as well as some vitamins, to avoid her body from collapsing.
By the 130th day, she was in a completely different state than when she first entered the cave.
Often, the eyes will be dull in the corner, talking to themselves, even if the staff asked, but also completely ignored, and a moment of mental hysteria, and then highly excited situation.
Seeing this bad state, the experimenters decided to stop the experiment so that it would not bring irreparable harm to her.
They opened the door of the cave and picked up Follini, who also did not answer the questions related to the experimenters.
It was not until 2 days after returning to the surface that she spoke. When the experimenters asked her how long she thought she had been underground, she herself thought it was about 60 days, but the reality was that 130 days had passed.
They examined Follini's body and found that many of her physical indicators, many of which were out of order.
Even after treatment, she still felt a strong sense of loneliness and security, and her personality became less spirited and optimistic than before.
Later she took a whole 2 years to adjust back to her initial appearance, and afterwards Follini replied that she should never take part in such experiments again because it was too terrible! Even if she was given more money, she did not want to participate.
Does time exist?
Researchers did this experiment as a way to prove that time does not exist.
In fact, time is a more abstract concept, which is a continuous and sequential expression of the movement and change of matter.
We can't see or touch it, but we can determine it by the measurement of the tool. For example, the reference is the rotation of the watch hand.
For example, if we finish eating and a little time has passed, we can infer that more than 10 minutes have passed, and so on, by using a certain behavior to infer the time spent on another behavior.
But in the eyes of scientists, time is not the same for example, Einstein mentioned in his theory of relativity that
Everyone's time is different, so the quality of enjoyment is also different, so the speed at which time wanders is also different.
This is because the speed of time wandering and the movement of space, when the faster the speed of movement in space, and subsequently the flow of time will become very slow, the
For example, in the science fiction movie "Star Trek" inside, Cooper and another female astronaut went to look for something, and when they returned, the original waiting for them in the ship, but has aged 23 years, for them this trip is not just a few hours time.
So time is not the same between the two. To be more precise, time is indeed defined in an artificial way, in the form of "tools".
The regulation is within a certain range, so that people have rules to follow and a basis for what to do and when to sleep or carry out daily production activities.
