"Time" is completely something we cannot percieve.
"General relativity predicts that massive rotating objects should drag space-time around themselves as they rotate," said Pavlis. "Frame dragging is like what happens if a bowling ball spins in a thick fluid such as molasses. As the ball spins, it pulls the molasses around itself. Anything stuck in the molasses will also move around the ball. Similarly, as the Earth rotates, it pulls space-time in its vicinity around itself. This will shift the orbits of satellites near the Earth. "We found that the plane of the orbits of LAGEOS I and II were shifted about six feet (two meters) per year in the direction of the Earth's rotation," Pavlis said. "This is about 10 percent greater than what is predicted by general relativity, which is within our margin of error of plus or minus 20 percent. Later measurements by Gravity Probe B, a NASA spacecraft scheduled to be launched in 2000, should reduce this error margin to less than one percent. This promises to tell us much more about the physics involved." Einstein's theory of general relativity has been highly successful at explaining how matter and light behave in strong gravitational fields, and has been successfully tested using a wide variety of astrophysical observations. The frame-dragging effect was first derived using general relativity by Austrian physicists Joseph Lense and Hans Thirring in 1918. Known as the Lense-Thirring effect, it was previously observed by the team of Ciufolini using the LAGEOS satellites and has recently been observed around distant celestial objects with intense gravitational fields, such as black holes and neutron stars. The new research around Earth is the first direct detection and measurement of this phenomenon.

time is very much real, the concept you have is not wrong tho. Just the internal clock you are referring to which is generated by the human consciousness does have its own set of boundaries and rules within our dome pieces. Time is real man, how fast can you run in a pool? Faster if the water molecules were more spread out? try to imagine a bunch of fat people jumping in a pool and swiming as fast as they can to the other side. This is light, and this is how light acts on earth. Slugging through the water that is its gravitational pull. Time is not measurable in the sense that, it will never be truly how you should feel it. if the planet decides to speed up its magnetic field and force evolution and chaos well..@#$% hide in a cave? or become one with the god force take me! like the guy standing on the cliff in the movie 2012 utter over cascading fire *its beautiful* arms streched out thinking namaste
60 seconds can go by but the clock wont honestly tell you if its a true 60 seconds. Clocks are affected by initial frame dragging caused by the earth gravity.edit on 4-2-2013 by CrypticSouthpaw because: (no reason given)
why am i such a genius, maybe cus im left handed? ah kidding. but check this artical. I never read it before. but for some reason it explains exactly what i believe inedit on 4-2-2013 by CrypticSouthpaw because: (no reason given)

We base many things off these equations. They help many lives, and push the species further and further.
This thread is absolute rubbish.
The best one can say related to time being an illusion is that the exact correctness of time is dependent on relative variables which can't be precisely measured. We have to make our best guesses depending on the instruments used to gather our information, and the processing power needed to give the most accurate assessments, depending on the goal at hand.
What people are showing in this thread is their ignorance.
It's annoying, though understandable.
