No, see, you need to freeze time for everyone EXCEPT you. I want one of those working kinds. :-D
I wonder how many minutes he will be frozen in time…
both zero and infinite.
Forever. No one is able to turn the clock off. However we can assume either the machine still experiences time, or crazy space time shit can still occur with the clock active. Otherwise the clock would simply freeze its own effect and time would revert to normal. Also, I’m 90% sure that the universe can’t experience heat death or anything with entropy (at least in terms of conventional physics) literally being nothing and time being frozen. Therefore the chances of either the clock wearing itself out (t=infinity, if machine is self sustaining) (if it is experiencing the flow of time) or some random event reversing the effect (t= a larger infinity) (if it is not), literally go to 100% due to it has LONGER THEN FOREVER to happen.
At this point time will resume and no being in the universe will have known this has happened, with the exception of the scientist who will notice the machine is either damaged, gone, or the bar is all red again.
Presumably he knew this was going to happen, and the next step is to make sure he doesn’t freeze either.
Of course, if he doesn’t figure out how to reverse the effect manually, he will die of old age, and the bacteria in his body will liquefy his remains. At this point things get interesting. What happens to the microbial life left over in his body, can it eat the ‘dumb’ time-frozen material or can’t it? Will a random mutation increase the cultures chance of survival before it exhausts its food supply? My guess would be that it couldn’t, and that the bacteria would eat away his entire body, leaving an odd goo of the unpalatable material or simply nothing would remain of him. I’m also going to guess that odd goo would take a larger infinity worth of time then either of the situations that cause the clock to stop working to randomly spawn new life (so 0% chance of that happening).
However were a new form of life to randomly spawn from a human bodies worth of biological material, or were the original bacteria able to eat the dumb matter, over the infinity time granted to this new life, it would begin converting all organic material on earth to its new standard of life. It would evolve until ‘eukaryotes’ form, and once multicellular life comes into existence, some sort of large bug or something would probably damage the clock.
Time resumes, and suddenly the old life forms spring back to life. The ones still alive and functional would be far away from the point of origin of the new life, and the oceans would probably be all new life, so what’s left of the old life would have NO ecosystem. Its more then likely that most multicellular organisms are dead, having their brains and other organs at least partially eaten by the new life anyways. The important thing is the new life, if it even has an immune system, would have no way of dealing with the old diseases. The new multicellular organisms are killed off, and life goes back to microbial life, both old and new.
Evolutionary pressure is now extreme now that it has a group of 2.6 billion year old life and a group of 3.6 billion year old life competing for the same set of resources. It is presumable that evolution would be accelerated by this, setting the stage for some of the most interesting creatures to ever exist. Like Lovecratian awesomeness. But long before this has a chance to occur (800 million years) the earth is swallowed by the heat of the sun.
Of course, its more likely then anything that the earth simply resumes after his second attempt with one less time machine and a pile of goo instead of a scientist
This was the most interesting comment I have seen in a long time! Nice one! ;)
Seems like they need a quantum entanglement device.
(We'll never share your info)
