it's stating the obvious that we will die. yet, the only significance time has to do with our death, is by our calculations we'll last for about 70
however, without the sun and our orbit around it, there would be no need for time to exist. therefore, the only reason why there are seconds, minutes,
hours, day, months, years and time is because we created it due to our position in our solar system. in theory, a way to keep track of where we are in
the solar system. hence, if its winter in england, that part of the earth is further away from the sun, and when its summer, that part of the earth is
closer. so the time scale that we have created...why should that exist elsewhere in the universe? perhaps it doesn't and therefore there never was a
begining, middle or end for the universe.
im finding this concept hard to grasp myself, and even thinking whether or not it is plain crazy. yet, it seems to be making more and more sense to
i know there won't be a mass burning of all time keeping devices, yet when we measure speed, we measure distance and the time taken to travel that
distance. miles per hour and miles per second for example. the way we have created time, is a way to keep track of certain aspects of our everyday
existence and to explain the concept of passed, present and future. what i think im saying is that there is no passed, present or future...there is
just one singularity. in theory this leads back to the universe being infinite, never having a beginning or end. this means the concept of time within
the universe is irrelavent. its only relavent in our existence because of our position in the solar system.
