Time is a dimension just like height, depth and width. Just as height depth or width do not move or flow, the same applies to time. Past and future are like east and west. To say that something is “east” means that it is “east” relative to something “west”. For example, Michigan is east of California and west of New York. Similarly, to say that something is in the past simply means that it is in the past relative to another moment.
Jan. 15, 1958 is past to us (in 2012) and future to someone in 1938.The idea that time passes, that “now” moves from the past towards the future has been proven to be an absurdity. For example, suppose time does move. How fast? Seconds per what??????
