Of course there is - it's called space-time.

Time definitely exists in space.
Space Time is not like regular time, it's a ratio. When you experience 99% space you experience 1% time, when you experience 99% time you experience
Time exists in space, it's just the faster you travel the more space you experience and the less time you experience. So in other words the more of
one you experience, the less of the other you experience and vice versa. When standing still time ticks like it does for you when reading this. When
traveling at 28,000 mph in orbit, you are traveling through more space and hence experiencing less time. Time has to do with speed of traversing
space, the faster you go, the slower time ticks, the slower you go, the faster time ticks. If you were to travel FTL you would actually become
younger as time would move backwards. Time can't move backwards, this is why Light Speed is the fastest universal constant. We can likely traverse
faster than FTL, but only by utilizing short cuts, or if we were to figure out a way to travel out of the physical realm.
Time and space are intrinsically linked by a ratio. Time is not a man made concept, it exists. Things die over time. Things break, over time. The
way we keep track of time is a man made concept, but time itself is crucial to the existence of the universe.
Daylight savings time is pretty dumb and should go. There are some places in America that don't do day light time... Timezones are pretty stupid as
well. It doesn't matter to me what my clock says, it only matters to me if there is daylight outside.
In other words, if the world was synced in time record, I would still wake up when the sun rose, I would still go to bed a few hours after it set. It
wouldn't be 6am and 11pm, it would be more like 12 am and 5pm. It wouldn't change a thing.
We actually already have this, it's called "World Time" which is then applied to "Internet Time." Why we do the day light savings is baffling to me.
My father says "I don't want to go to work at 1 in the morning" and I say, but in reality you are going to work at the same time, you are just
changing what the clock reads for YOU. You don't get any less sleep, any more sleep, you don't lose time... it just reads accurately the same for
everyone on the globe.
The way daylight savings time works is just dumb. As a result to daylight savings and Time Zone's we actually have parts of the globe a whole day
ahead, even though they aren't ahead. So who's calendar is wrong? Ours (The U.S.) or Asia's?
More specifically, say the world were to end on December 21st 2012. Who's clock are we counting by, because those in Asia are going to be on the 22nd
by the time we get to the 21st. This is stupid as a day signifies how long it takes for the earth to complete 1 revolution. That process takes 24
hours, not 40. Timezones make it 40, since Asia is 16 hours ahead of the states.
So in essence what they do is count a day from multiple starting positions, known as timezones. Each time zone starts their 24 hours based on the
position of the sun in relation to their position on the earth, even though a day has nothing to do with the sun.
A year is how long it takes to revolve around the sun, a day is how long it takes for our globe to spin 1 complete revolution. We spin 366 360º
revolutions to every revolution around the sun.
Therefor, I deduce the person who came up with timezones was an idiot.
We should also use a unified 24 hour clock, instead of the 12 hour clock. The 12 hour clock is what confuses people into thinking that you want them
to work in the middle of the night. AM/PM F's it all up.
In other words, my dad wouldn't care if he got 8 hours of sleep and was awake for 16 hours and had to get up at hour 1. He only thinks he cares
because he associates hour 1 with darkness. He still gets 8 hours of sleep and 16 ours of being awake. He still has to go to work an hour after he
wakes. Whats the difference what the clock says.... nothing, there is no difference in reality.
