Light, the inverse is dark..
Real, the inverse is illusion..
1 over anything is the math formula for the inverse of anything. It is very simple and precise, so I am not sure how it can make it more confusing!?
Yes, frequency is measured in hertz, which is a very specific time cycle for that particular wave. The point is that it cycles and, therefore, it is NOT linear, so time also cannot be linear since it is directly related to frequency which always cycles..
Just like you said, in a frequency, you are essentially vibrating in the same exact unit of time. So, time does not change within any specific wave. Yet, when various waves interact with each other the complexity is raised significantly, yet, the basic definitions do NOT change..
To me this is very basic and actually very simple, but, maybe it is because I am a wireless person and deal everyday with frequencies and wave equations..
I actually take this frequency stuff to the limit and, as such, I view that everything ultimately is just an interaction of waves at different frequencies..
