Whenever - Physical Definition - Quantized Time
... In the modern established physical theories (the Standard Model of Particles and Interactions and General Relativity) time is not quantized ... Current established physical theories are believed to fail at this time scale, and many physicists expect that the Planck time might be the smallest unit of time that could ever be measured, even in principle ... Tentative physical theories that describe this time scale exist see for instance loop quantum gravity ...

Famous quotes containing the words definition and/or physical:

    ... if, as women, we accept a philosophy of history that asserts that women are by definition assimilated into the male universal, that we can understand our past through a male lens—if we are unaware that women even have a history—we live our lives similarly unanchored, drifting in response to a veering wind of myth and bias.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    Authority is not a quality one person “has,” in the sense that he has property or physical qualities. Authority refers to an interpersonal relation in which one person looks upon another as somebody superior to him.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
