There is a person who has the ability to stop time in a radius of say 10m around himself. The time stop does not affect things like light and the air inside the sphere, so the person can move around and see what is happening.
The question I want to propose is, from an observer outside of the sphere, which scenario is more accurate?
1) For the outside observer, time continues as normally, and viewing the sphere, everything is locked in space, except for the person until he releases the sphere; or
2) Everything outside of the sphere appears locked in time, and the inside of the sphere continues as normal, anyone inside would be unaffected. An observer outside the sphere however, would have no knowledge of it as the passage of time from when it is created to when it is released is an instant. They would only notice if something was suddenly out of place.
Does not have to be hard science based, simply which is the most plausible.
Will close this as after some consideration realized that the 1st option is stopping time inside the sphere, aka something like faceless void chronosphere in dota, while the 2nd is actually speeding up time inside, aka similar to the book and movie clockstoppers.
