Scientists have confirmed the existence of 'time crystals' and they may change how we see the world

We consider ourselves relatively intelligent here in JOE, but we've got to be honest, we read this a few times and we're still not 100% we fully understand it.

Regardless, we're gonna give it a go.

So the folks over at Gizmodo were chatting to the guys and gals in charge of a specific set of scientific studies in the University of Maryland and Harvard University, both of whom were conducting experiments on what they have verified as 'time crystals'.

Basically, while we already perceive how the world reacts to space - essentially Newton's third law of basic physics: for every action there is an equal but opposing reaction - these time crystals do not adhere to these rules.

While we are used to spacial elements in either solid, liquid or gaseous forms, these scientists are testing those same states of being on the time crystals, perhaps proving forever that time as we know it isn't a linear, constant thing.

Like we said, it's VERY complicated, but the implications are potentially endless. Or not. We might have to give it another read...
