Too bad your theory is wrong. I once thought time "couldn't exist" also but once you actually realize what time is doing, at least from our
limited perspective, you do realize its presence is there.
Doesn't mean we actually know what exactly it is, but it is there.
Now if we were to call the Enthalpy of the universe time, does that mean time is changing? For the Enthalpy of the Universe is increasing, and
therefore maybe time is changing proportionally with it.
It's easiest to just realize this.
Time is an indivisible incriment.
If you think to yourself, well here's an easy example.
You have 1000 dollars compounded daily at 6% interest, that daily is the indivisible incriment of time. For we all know that if you compounded it
hourly, the experimental data would change.
So what time is is the finite incriment that the universe runs on, just like our computers have a clock that they run on, so does this universe.
If there were no "time" then the universe would not function, because the incriments would be infinitely small and therefore the data would equal
zero because 1/infinity is...zero.
And obviously we aren't nothingness.
However who can say if time is necissarily the 4th dimension, I suppose it is, but who knows.
Actually I was thinking about that a few years ago.
What if time was the 4th dimension, and the passing of time was the expansion of the universe into this dimension, so time and motion are invariably
This could mean wonders of possibilities, but it relys on the principles that time is dependant on motion, this isn't too off though, after all as
you approach the speed of light time appears to slow down.
I have no clue why as of yet, but it could have to do with this proportionality.
Although, from what I've read, most temporal physicists and quantum temporal physicists seem to be so "beyond" us, we really can't discuss this in
any way but philosophically, which actually those same scientists are now finding themselves having to rely upon more and more, or so I've read.
Time is a confusing thing, but it is there, or we'd be able to manipulate things beyond imagination, which we can't. Time is the law, something we
can't escape, or nothing would work, and nothing would happen.
