How does the non-existence of time affect the Schrodinger equation:
The Time-Dependent Schrödinger Equation
We are now ready to consider the time-dependent Schrödinger equation. Although we were able to derive the single-particle time-independent Schrödinger equation starting from the classical wave equation and the de Broglie relation, the time-dependent Schrödinger equation cannot be derived using elementary methods and is generally given as a postulate of quantum mechanics. It is possible to show that the time-dependent equation is at least reasonable if not derivable, but the arguments are rather involved (cf. Merzbacher [2], Section 3.2; Levine [3], Section 1.4).

Hilbert space H of states is space with time-independent basis vectors. Schrodinger's equation describes the state of a quantum system and is :
dependent.
How does that square with the "time does not exist" theory? Was Schrodinger wrong? Time evolution in quantum systems is linear. How do you remove time from those equations?
We will then say I measured spin up before I measured spin down but Physics doesn't care about this order in terms of past, present and future. It's a mental construct.

Time is just a measurement , In order for there to be a beginning or end they must start at the same location .

Tell me, where does this flow of time start? Is it at a nanosecond? Picosecond? Zeptosecond? Planck's Constant? If time is objectively real, at what point does it change?
