Is it possibly according to the laws of physics (or common sense... either one...) for any two events to occur at the EXACT same time? Or is time infinitely divisible?

Sorry, I don't do quantum discussions. Can we talk about sex instead?

And for my serious answer- I don't know. And even if I did know, it wouldn't make a difference to anything. I'm not having a go at your for making this thread- I just think that there are some things that don't need to be investigated.

Yes, of course. Time isn't owned by individual events.

Edit: Actually, this reminds me. When I walked into the kitchen I was randomly just tapping my knuckles together cos I was bored and my kettle clicked(i.e. stopped boiling) at the exact time they tapped. That was weird.

Well, from what I gathered, you asked a question related to space, and then a separate question about time being divisible (?).

Well, if time WERE infinitely divisible, then you can always find a space between two events (or atleast the beginnings of these events) no matter what. They're related.

r u trying to say that everything has like maybe the tiniest fraction of a nano second between them?
thats interesting and kinda makes you think, but i think two things can happen at the same time, but the odds of it occuring at the exxact same moments are quite small

No, what he means is taking, perhaps, the exact point of climax. Is anyone hitting that point at the same time, or will they allways be a minute fragment of time before or after, and is it possible for it to ever happen in exact syncronisity.

no time is not infinitely divisible. Time is a dimension governed by the same laws as other dimensions and so is made up of discrete blocks called "planck Lengths", therefore 2 events can happen at EXACTLY the same time.

P.S. A similar concept is also used to solve the achilles and the tortoise riddle

P.P.S. Don't ask badly worded physics questions in the pit only 1/100000000000 people will understand what you want, and if pit-dwellers don't understand they just resrot to comments about masturbation.

no, because in order for an event to be exactly the same it has to have the exact same item, and the exact same thing cant do two of the exact same physical operations at once.

Of course, for the 10 million guys fapping, there will probably be maybe 2000 simultaneous ejaculations.

I thinks its possible I mean if you look at nuclear fusion in power plants millions of atoms are smashing into each other creating energy so I'm sure 4 atom could smash into each other and release energy at the exact same time.
In other words 2 molecular fusions at once. So I think its possible.

ermmm yes it is, thats the whole principles of general relativity, which was quite recently proved relatively conclusively. We live in an atleast 4-dimensional space.

Planck's quantum theory can be extrapolated to time. And so, one could assume that time is divisible into units along the order of 10 to the negative 34 of some current unit.

Intervals of time are relative, and so absolute time can never really be considered unless both subjects are moving with the same relative velocity to everything else in the system. This is impossible unless they share the exact same space.

And so, unless two occurences happen in the exact same spot in space, they cannot happen at the exact same time in space.

He means is it possible for two things to happen at the same time down to the billionth of a second, or if there is always fractions of a second between the starting time of two events although they might have appeared to start at the same time.

Buy ya i think its possible.

Just Wikipedia'd the Planck length and it says the minimum length of time is called the Planck time. Is that what you meant?

EDIT: Oh, you mean how the first 3 dimensions have a minimum which is the Planck length, and since the same laws of physics governs all dimensions, you could call the minimum time measurement a "Planck length", in a sense.

Time is a dimension.

Think about it- if you want to plot your bedroom onto a graph, you need to plot the shapes and forms, which needs X, Y and Z, to be '3D'. Then, for that graph to mimick real life, you need to add T, which will show what is happening, when. Then there are the other axis which I can't be bothered going into.

in quantum physics, there are what are called quantum particles.
they travel at the speed of light. if you were to release them at the exact same time on two different tracks that start in the same place, split off(one down each path), and come back together to end at the same spot, then they would both arrive at the end at the exact same time, even if one of the paths is several times longer than the other one.

Depends on what you define as an event. Let's say I play a note on guitar, and my bassist plays a note on bass. We're not going to play the note at the exact same time (we're extremely tight as a band, but there's going to be a few nanoseconds difference), but the notes are going to overlap and difference is negligible, so for our purposes, we hit the note together. So like I said, the events aren't going to START at the same time, but they're going to HAPPEN at the same time, because they'll overlap.
