Someone has stopped all time. Dont worry, some people realized someone was tampering with time and they managed to create bubbles of time where they live, trying to build more equipment that lets them expand the bubbles they are in and build new bubbles where they need it.
Ofcourse you need your own light inside that bubble, as light outside the bubble wont be reaching your eye. You also need your own power source for creating oxygen, recycling waste etc. Fortunately you figured out a way to turn individual molecules of matter into useable energy by making it think its an evaporating black hole, so power isnt going to be an issue any time soon. Fortunately gravity doesnt seem affected by time so you wont be flying off into the time barrier surrounding your tiny bubble of time.
But then I started thinking of the border of the bubble, what would it really do to any matter there?
Lets put up some restrictions:
- the edge of the bubble no thickness but it does have a "grace period" where the particles slow down until they are too frozen in time (which takes on average 0.001 seconds if you need it). During this grace period it lends time to any matter it would normally interact with letting it push it out of the way or heat it up. However the ONLY interaction will be with particle on their grace period, any interactions the outside particle had before would not resume until full time re-asserts itself (to prevent one particle from displacing an entire atmosphere because it pushed one particle).
- the matter outside the bubble can be assumed a normal earth atmosphere and ground.
So the question is, what would happen at the edge and how to describe it? (Or if this completely fails, do I need to alter the parameters of the bubble to make sure it remains liveable inside for extended periods of time).
Keep in mind the following:
- all radiation such as light ends up across the border at some point.
- the very air is constantly moving in all directions and constantly collides with the barrier.
- matter that is stuck on the other side has no time to interact with the matter inside the bubble other than when grace-period matter interacts with it.
I would hazard a guess that at some point there would be so much matter at the edge that matter inside the bubble would simply bounce off, preserving the bubble.
