• What is proper time

    From Maciej Wozniak@21:1/5 to All on Fri Sep 22 22:01:03 2023
    What is your proper time, right now, when
    you're reading this question? Number/s
    pls.
    What do/does your clock/s indicate? For real,
    not for gedanken?

    They're indicating one of zone times.
    You may have a clock indicating UTC
    around. or even TAI. No "proper time"
    as you describe it exists or ever existed
    in the real world.
    You've just gedanken/fabricated this
    absurd.

    My proper time is what my wristwatch displays.

    Oh, what a brilliant joke again! How funny our relativistic
    clowns are...
    And your proper time (what your clock/s indicate) is...?
    Any numbers?

    My proper time is what my wristwatch displays. It isn't what my wall
    clock displays, unless I stay perfectly still. Otherwise it has a (teeny
    tiny) difference.
