    Nonsensical word salad again river.
    Space and time evolved at t+10-43 seconds...One cannot exist without the other. They are two sides pf the same coin. And of course nothing physical exists without spacetime.

    1- Does time exist ?
    Time exists like the change-interval duality.

    2- What is time ?
    Time is the continuous ocurrence of phenomena delimited for a start and an end.

    Spacetime should be changed to , spacematter-movement(duration)-time.

    Time is the measurement of duration of the continuous occurrence of a phenomenon from start to end (or instant of measurement). It has no existence apart from the existence of space and all chronologies within spacetime.

    I think some are getting what time Really , Actually is .

    A definition isn't enough to explain time. From the definition in the post #122 are originated:

    1- The change-interval duality.
    2- The magnitive time: objective (changes), imperceptible (intervals) and mathematical (measurements).
    3- The parallelochron.

    1- why a duality ?
    2- define magnitive time , in more detail .
    3-parallelochron , means ?

    1- Two natures. One physical (changes) and an abstract one (intervals).

    2- Magnitive is derived from magnitude. In addition to a duality, it can be measured.

    It unifies in a single scheme, the regular and irregular duration.

    Is 2- not already accounted for in the "abstract" (intervals) portion of 1- ?

    No, because in #1- the interval is unknown and in #2- it is a measurement (change-interval-measurement = magnitive).

    But a "magnitive" is a measurement, a number?

    I looked it up, but it looks like there is no definition of the word at all.....

    Magnitive (adjective) is the quality derived of time of being objective (changes), imperceptible (intervals) and measurable (units). Magnitive expresses the composition of time.

    But is incomplete .

    There is no real physical reality , realization in this definition .

    And the perception that order in our everyday lives is by time zones .

    If I was asked can I answer the most fundamental question about time, I'd say there is no fundamental question about time, or all questions about time are equally fundamental, because they're all ultimately meaningless.

    Can you answer the most fundamental question about space? What is it?

    To your last statement ; room

    Its not what space is , rather , it is what space allows .

    Space allows manifestation of everything . of everything .

    But is space a consequence , of the manifestation of energy .

    Here's the thing ;

    No matter how small or large this energy is , it will always have space .

    Space is real: It is what separates you and me and the Earth from the Moon and Sun etc: Time is real: It is what stops everything from happening together. Both space and time had their beginnings at the BB. Space and time evolved at t+10-43 seconds...One cannot exist without the other. They are two sides of the same coin. Hence the term spacetime.And of course nothing physical exists without spacetime.
