On a different video, Nature of time and simultaneity, published on YouTube, I was talking to a different guy. The video mentioned some Einstein’s ideas from his Relativity theory, to which I reacted with the following comment.

this theory makes science looks like a made up lie to explain equation, well it is not. Now is now everywhere in the universe and that is actually easy to understand. I always think of this when watching a live soccer match from Europe here in the US. Now got to be now everywhere either the universe agrees or not.

That is not true. The “nows” we handle everyday just happen to be so imperceptibly different because we are not in a significant gravitational field, neither do we observe objects moving at any significant speed in reference to each other compared to the speed of light. But our now is completely and utterly different from that of a universe 13 billion light years away.

But you are just explaining theoretically and through mathematical calculations using speed of light as a factor. If I ask you whether there is a solar eruption happening right at the same moment you read the question, will you answer “YES”? What about billions of light years from Earth, will you answer “NO”? What if you could wait billions of years, and be able to detect the gamma waves of such eruption, will you change your mind, and admit that the eruption occurred billions of years ago, when some YouTube user was asking you about the event, and you denied just because theoretical mathematics did not support the idea of an absolute time? Time is relative when we consider the fact that other points of the universe are far enough to neglect our human chronologies, but time is absolute because every points of the universe exist at the same moment, think about that!

Allan Kambindama No. Because universal expansion, entropy, and speed at which you are moving all impact the relative passage of time. So yes, the event occurred at the exact same space-time coordinates for all observers. in the years, or billions of years, it takes that light to reach our reference frame that will be irrelevant, because the time when that occurred for that event may have been exceptionally longer ago and closer to us.

lol, so now you can combine what you just wrote and my previous comment to understand the idea of absolute time in a much deeper sense. I quote you:
“in the years, or billions of years, it takes that light to reach our reference frame that will be irrelevant, because the time when that occurred for that event may have been exceptionally longer ago and closer to us.”
That quote from you is hard to understand, and may be you mean something else. However, you just made me think of how the definition of time is confined within our perception of days and nights. Let’s use a different definition for time, lets base our time on the amount of heat released from the largest star in universe since big bang, the probe star. That star is moving at a given speed but its chemical reactions do not depend on the speed of the whole star. Let’s suppose that the first amount of heat was 1joules, and the number kept UNIFORMLY increasing to 2J, 3J… nJ. Because the release of heat is uniformly quantized and does not depend on the speed of the star, we can use the nJ notation to represent our time. Please, note that at time nJ, other events are occurring in the universe. If it were possible, we could keep record of events happening at each nJ moment. The record would show the exact distance from our probe star to any other star, and how it changed according to the change of nJ. This notation of time consider time absolute because the amount of heat released increases uniformly. I am just trying to explain what makes time absolute, and I hope the nJ notation for time is clear. I know may be there is no such star having the characteristics I chose for the probe star, but the idea is clear, and absolute time can be inferred, (even if not proven) as long as it can be theoretically demonstrated, as I did. If the nJ notation is not clear, I will find another way to demonstrate that time is absolute, as soon as you reply.
