absolute time is an illusion, the notion that time flows the same for everyone under every condition.

If you put precise clocks into orbit around Earth, then collect them a few years later, they are desynced. that is not fault of the clock, but a wierd consequence of gravity.

Fast objects have clocks that tick slower. You can send one of your twins on a fast rocket, have him return, and he will be younger than you…
