4. If block time corresponds to clock time, then how can there be a
block time structure that encompasses all events when clock times
faster or slower for different observers?
This corresponds to different objects having different velocities
Really just different directions through spacetime. Everything always
proper speed 1 (at least classically).
What exactly is "proper speed" in SR?
Dx/Dtau, where x is the coordinate vector and tau is the proper time (what a clock
measures) and D is the covariant derivative. In flat space, i.e. SR, it reduces to the
ordinary derivative dx/dtau. Notice that in the rest frame it's always (1,0,0,0), i.e. all
the 'speed' is along the time coordinate.
