Title: What percentage did you understand?
Post by: Mince on March 19, 2021, 09:57:15 AM
I think I am about 60-70% on this seven-minute video, and I have seen it three times. I would be interested to know how much of it everyone else understands.

My understanding is roughly 60-70% less than yours.

About three minutes. More than enough for me.

Lost me at 2.15 - doesn't explain why people are disagreeing over sequence of events or why they are seeing them differently so then it doesn't make sense that they are both right.

21 seconds, just after he told me this was going to "blow my mind". Last time I watched a video promising me that, a squirrel appeared on a skateboard. You just can't beat that!

Plus his eyes look liked he'd taken illegal substances.

That's Einstein's special relativity for you. But the sequence of events only starts becoming messed up when one of the two people viewing the events is travelling very fast compared to the other.

General relativity brings in gravity slowing down time.
