Loop quantum gravity (LQG), if I understand correctly, describes time as emerging from the interactions of quanta of the gravitational field that can be described by spinfoam networks. (See photos)
We know time moves less quickly at sea level than it does atop a mountain. So, if "time" in LQG is just a measure of interactions, is LQG saying that there are less of these "interactions" taking place at sea level than atop the mountain?
In other words, the more mass density, or the more the gravitational pull, the less "interactions" there are in LQG?
This would be an interesting way to see the world. It would mean, to make a coarse analogy, that at sea level, we can "play" or "interact" with less sand than we can atop a mountain. Or to put it another way, the soap-bubble like spinfoam networks that make up our bodies in a gravitational field can blow less bubbles at the seashore than they can at the edge of space.
