Huh? I didn't ask what Time is, I asked what enables this physical motion/change.NickGaspar wrote:Time is our act of labeling and quantifying physical change.
RJG wrote:Without a 'means' to move/change, then logically there can be no movement/change.
Great, we agree. So now WHAT pray tell is the "means to move/change"? ...could it be the dimension of "Time"?NickGaspar wrote:Yes…
RJG wrote:If movement exists, then so must there be a 'means' to move.
Yes. And WHAT pray tell "allows this movement"? ...could it be the dimension of "Time"?NickGaspar wrote:...which points to the fact that, because "things move" in a space that allows movement…
1. Without the dimension of Time, there could be NO movement/change.
2. If movement/change exists, then so must the dimension of Time.
3. Movement/change require Time, ...not the other way around! (...this is where Science makes its fatal error!)

...In other words, whatever you define Time as, if it stops, then then logically Time would stop, ...correct?
Nick, you are missing the point altogether.NickGaspar wrote:No...no...no we need to use more clear language.
The "Time" for the process known as our local universe started 12.7 billion years ago...
1. If Time is not real, then move/change can't happen.
2. But since motion/change does happen, Time is real.
3. If Time is real, and it stops, then we all die. (no more heartbeats, breaths of air, etc etc). Since we are still alive, this is proof that Time has never stopped. For if it ever did stop, it would permanently/eternally/infinitely stop (for without Time, NOTHING can happen/occur to start it back up again!).
No, I mean global absolute time. I'm talking about a singular dimension called Time. There is only ONE spatial direction (4th axis) called Time. It enables 3D objects to move throughout space. Again, you are confusing the measurements of objects as Time itself. Measurements are NOT dimensions!Tamminen wrote:I guess that by 'time' you mean local time, ie. time of the current reference frame. But that is not global, absolute time.
