All systems of measurement feature base units: in the International System of Units (SI), for example, the base unit of length is the meter. In the system of Planck units, the Planck base unit of length is known simply as the Planck length, the base unit of time is the Planck time, and so on. These units are derived from the five dimensional universal physical constants of Table 1, in such a manner that these constants are eliminated from fundamental equations of physical law when physical quantities are expressed in terms of Planck units.
A speed of 1 Planck length per Planck time is the speed of light in a vacuum, the maximum possible speed in special relativity;

If you think that's strange OP, think about time dilation and compression through different mediums of space. Imagine if outside our galaxy was something called "Dark Matter", and light took twice as long to travel through it, would time go half as fast or would the object be twice as far away? How could you be sure of either?
Enjoy thinking about that for the next week.
When you're done, try this hat on for size.
What if time Dilation / Compression through altered maximum light speeds meant that the galaxies that are billions of light years away are actually right in front of you, inside you, all around you, and a part of you at the same time based on how you choose to percieve it?
Of course, we can't forget that all images are created by your mind's eye, and not a truthful and factual representation of anything that goes on outside your body. If you don't even know where point A and B are in the universe, or if there is a universe at all, how do you measure distance and time?
What if we never left the big bang, except in our mind's eye?
Yeah, I know, mind = blown.

TIME is relative to each persons state of mind hence when I go to sleep 40 minutes feels like 5 minutes in conscious time. Also when we are in a euphoric romantic love state, there never seems to be enough time to be with that significant other partner. Doing a crappy dead end job and time seems to stand still, Time is in the mind of the beholder. Hence time in part is psychological.
