    Time Doesn't Exist! It's a concept tracking the Earth rotations and orbits around the Sun. Yes? No?

    Time isn't a thing or an object. It doesn't externally exist.

    Time is a measurement of movement.
    That movement is internal, external, and all across the universe.
    We use a standard of time here on Earth, but that may not be the real way to measure time.
    But it could be just the difference between units of measurements.
    Like the use of pounds or kg for weight, the numbers are different but it is the same weight.
    A second is our base of time, but the second may not be the natural function of time, it could be based on some other standard.
    Without Time there would be nothing.
    What time means can be subjective or objective.
    Whether Time is also a dimension is not really a known.
    I don't believe in real time travel, so time travel if it exists is just differences in how to measure time. But to actually travel in our time, would mean that the state of every moving thing atoms, subatomic particles would all have to be in the same state. Things that have disappeared would have to exist. How can the universe record and play them back.

    Time travel would only make sense if now is not now but either behind the real now, or in front of the real now. Then like a DVR you can move back and forth while now is moving forward.

    The universe is already too complicated, and this would be a nightmare, and it wouldn't even be useful.

    I would agree with that for the most part.
    Time is a (man made) measurement to document changes.
    Sometimes it's a psychological device such as making New Year's resolutions on January 1st and proclaiming we have a "fresh start".
    There really is no major difference between December 31st & January 1st! Also depending on where one lives the weather is completely different during that "time of year".
    You can only say December- February are cold months in certain areas. January is a summer month in Sydney, Australia.
    Essentially it's the same month but a "different time" of year.

    I brought this up in Astronomy class.  The professor was saying time exists everywhere, and it slows when you approach a black hole, disappearing altogether once you go past the Event Horizon.  But what sense does that make if you're in an area of space where there is no sunrise, moon cycle, or change of the seasons?  You may have these on another planet, but the sequence would be different.

    Time is relevant only on 3rd Dimensional earth. Once earth completely ascends into a sacred planet, time will not be the same, if exist at all. A sacred planet is what is meant by the biblical "Heaven on earth". Earth is now in the 5th Dimension, but not all people have awakened into this dimension and can't feel it. So, I am in agreement with your statement above the photo "time isn't a thing or an object. It doesn't externally exist.

    Scientists, like astronomers, only believe what they can see, touch, feel or smell, therefore they would believe a statement like the one mentioned in astronomy class. They feel time on earth, so they believe that it must exist everywhere. They don't stop to think that palm trees exist in warm climates, but they can't grow in Antarctica because it's too cold so they reason that since time exists on earth, it must exist in outer space.

    Time is a device invented by man to account for day and night and the different seasons. To keep tract of things that matter only to man. Cave men didn't need time and animals don't need time. Only man needs a way to track time. This is my reasoning for the need of time and what it is for. Greg.
