Relativity and a possible future of computation

“One hour on this planet is 7 years on Earth”

According to Einstein’s theory of Relativity, “Time” slows down near massive objects. It appears that one can use this principle to simulate an “oracle” in computational complexity that could lead to machines that solve non-computable problems (NP hard & others in dense complexity hierarchy).

We know it is not possible around us -on this earth – but opens up a sweet thought experiment through time-dilation! The other possibility is through inception like dreaming only that instead of dreaming the mind needs to somehow compute the desired output. “Its a week the level down, 6 months the level down and 10 yrs for the 3rd level” (https://www.getyarn.io/yarn-clip/ed89d762-a570-4339-9f48-5dbd91eba916)

I have a feeling that Godel’s law may sound a death knell to this ambition as always! 🙂
