Traditionally, physicists have counted four interactions: gravity, electromagnetism, the weak nuclear force and the strong nuclear force. The magnitude and behavior varies greatly as can be seen in the table above. Yet, it is strongly believed that three of them are manifestations of a single, more fundamental, interaction.

I would argue any example of movement is proof of time. movement inherently involves speed, and distance, so movement proves time exists

What if we are just a series of instances that are always there, but some have knowledge, "past" knowledge of other states.
