I don’t know how it would work mathematically. But I consider imaginary time as time operating in distinct pockets, similar to a subroutine on a parallel processor that can spit out results seemingly instantaneously to the host program but only because it’s “black boxed” and otherwise disconnected to the main flow of time except for simultaneously input/output connection.
Not so much concurrent. More akin to operating in a negative pressure environment vs a positive pressure environment but instead of pressure it’s time.
How does negative pressure intersect with the positive pressure in a jet?
REALLY think about it. Imaginary time as pressure regulation. I know this is Bernoulli etc.
Now if we had no access to the pressure regulating tubes, no knowledge of them and only knew of the jet flow (time),
How could we show the existence of pressure regulation if we had no concept of negative pressure? No concept of a complex plane running perpendictular? It would be absurd. Jet’s flow and that’s what they do.
Eh, I have a pressure analogy in my head where I want to show how you can have fast moving in one direction with almost zero movement in the perpendicular direction such that the perpendicular direction can be safely ignored most of the time whereby that perpendicular direction _can_ map to the flow it intersects with but it can also perform other functions that are nearly invisible to the flow itself with the exception of the connection point. I’ll find it.
What’s killing me is this image of measuring tubes in a Venturi gas flow is it but in this case – does the flow lose any pressure in the measuring of the pressure?
I mean you have your bisimilar here. There’s pressure flowing left to right that’s also being shown vertically via the sampling tubes.
But the measuring tubes aren’t flowing with the flow.. They’re actually rather stable horizontally.
If you get enough sampling tubes, you could recreate the conditions inside of the tube fairly accurately, without having to actually be in the tube.
My mind’s still on measuring tubes and fourier transforms. (sampling is sampling, going from analog to digital and back again, converting time to frequency and frequency to time)…
Hold up: when we measure time (take a sample of time), we’ve stopped time.
Time ceases. That which is measured no longer changes. It ceases BEING time. It is a sample of time.
ACTUAL time (as it does what time does) _would_ at the very least be imaginary in its nature, stochastic time processes at the very least… certainly Riemann ..
You can’t step in the same river twice. While you’re communicating your frozen time measurement, time carries on.
Right. What are you looking to do instead of that?
So, for example, I woke up two days ago full of dread. No particular reason I can figure out. But it was dread. Awful feeling.
I knew, “That’s not me” and I did various things to “become myself” again.
Yet, upon later analysis, I remembered samples from far past times where I’d gone through a “waking up with dread” feeling and that, in fact, that _was_ “typical me”, perfectly within my program. I’d just forgotten that fact until later. But, there’s always a “first time” of discovery too.
