The universe is expanding at an ever-accelerating rate. according to a
team of Spanish physicists, it may not be the expansion of the
universe that's changing rate, but time itself.
Time might be slowing down, and that means that it could eventually stop altogether.
If the clock tick rate of time is decreasing over the eons, ancient light emitted will be observed to be blue shifted instead of red. The parallel can be observed through gravitational red shift where time runs slower on the surface of a gravitating body. <shrug>
The theory comes from string theory, which cannot be proved or disproved, so it's not really scientific. Plus, the article doesn't really define what time IS or how it works. And the theory has a relationship between wave length and frequency that doesn't exist. It's a wave theory, but light consists of photons, which move in a wave pattern but are not waves.
It's very interesting to me, however, because I've been getting a lot of visitors to my web site from people in Bilbao, Spain, and the theory comes from University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain.
