Asked by: d brown
Subject: Energy trapped in time
Question: If we observe the gyroscope as aging slower and slower the faster it spins, are we not trapping energy in time?
To be used later as it slows?
And to what extent can we abuse that?

I've youtubed people spinning bearings at rediculously high RPMs. Is any of that energy reaching any useful limit?
(you heard it here first... If it's useful.)

Thank you.

 I have a feeling I have that backwards and that it's counterintuitive or just not completely thought through.
But if there is still energy on one side or the other due to time dilation does that mean energy is coming out the faster it spins because it cannot all be stored in a smaller amount of time as it is aging slower meaning all energy in the universe and the fact that we're getting more is due to masses spinning somewhere and that's what created us and without that spin and time dilation we wouldn't exist?
now my head hurts.
