Thank you for your response Joel, I appreciate your expertise. You ought to change your comment into a story in its own right. I agree with you that the frames of reference of Einstein’s relativity point to one objective truth (ie the whole of space-time) and that different viewpoints can be reconciled. But in order for the objective reality to assume this wholeness you still require the underlying relationship between space and time correct? You still need the different viewpoints in order to arrive at ‘objective’ reality. We know that time on the surface of the earth is different than on a satellite in earth’s orbit or further afield. And my interpretation of this is that time is relative to where you are positioned in space? Some of my initial thoughts to your comment.
