# How does time work in space?

### How does time work in space?

This form of time dilation is also real, and it's because in Einstein's theory of general relativity, **gravity can bend spacetime**, and therefore time itself. The closer the clock is to the source of gravitation, the slower time passes; the farther away the clock is from gravity, the faster time will pass.

### What is time called in space?

In physics, spacetime is **any mathematical model which fuses the three dimensions of space** and the one dimension of time into a single four-dimensional manifold. Spacetime diagrams can be used to visualize relativistic effects, such as why different observers perceive differently where and when events occur.

### Is it true that time and space are the same?

Rather, time and space are united in a very precise way to form space-time, and this space-time is an absolute measure that can be used—again, in a very precise, mathematical way—to determine how different physical processes in different locations interact with each other. This does not mean that everything is happening simultaneously, however.

### Do you think time exists in empty space?

No, Time doesn’t exist in Empty Space. It should be Understood that Time is not something that is contained in the Dimensions of Space. Everything is affected by Time in the Universe. The widely accepted Model of the Universe is the 4-Dimensional Space-Time. 3 Dimensions belong to Space and 1 Dimension belong to Time, in this Model.

### Are there any scientists who think spacetime has no time dimension?

Other scientists have pointed out that the mathematical model of spacetime does not correspond to physical reality, and propose that a timeless “state space” provides a more accurate framework. The scientists also investigated the falsifiability of the two notions of time.

### How is the progression of time related to space?

Einstein showed that time and space are intimately linked and that the progression of time is relative, not absolute. Although there is nothing in physics that says time must flow in a certain direction, scientists generally agree that time is a very real property of the Universe.
