    • Prof. Greene says “time itself slows down”, and he mentions the term “time itself” more than once. But, if time is relative, there is no such thing as “time itself”. According to Relativity Theory, “time itself” does not exist. What exists is relative time only.

    • I agree, good one.

    • Can the light clock be used for a geometric analysis of time dilation if it is rotated 90-degrees towards the direction of motion?

      • according to lecture, It will be like we oar rotating in clocks perspective and get same result……

    • An excellent point, Bruce.
