Measured at the duration of 1.s of history per 1.s of time passed measured ?

Well pal , thought the question was easy enough . Throughout history we have measured time but over the generations have added complexity to what time is . There is said to be time dilation and time travel based on time , but isn't the reality of time , we are just measuring history ?

Again we have to involve Einstein here and consider what he meant by space-time compared to time . We measure history at 1.s of history per 1.s of time passed measured . Well pal Einstein and/or Minowski came up with space-time so we can plan or plot future events based on the fact that space-time energy is indistinguishable from space and we can observe our forward journey and/or destination simultaneously to our own reference frame of time . When Einstein said we are looking out into the future he meant if we travelled there and that would be a future destination , time for any observer would be measured at 1.s of history per 1.s second measured regardless of simultaneity because of c , the speed light travels at .
What this means is that if your Caesium clock was ticking slower than my Caesium clock , we'd both experience the 1.s of history measured by my clock . Well pal , people misunderstand that a change in frequency of the Caesium atom , that is not a change in real time , history , it is a change in timing and to do with the GPS systems because of angular incident signals .
So we are now on clearing up that misunderstanding of the populous too dude .

Note ; The Caesium clock requires no batteries and is a valuable product .

Aha, I was wondering how long it would be before caesium clocks made an appearance.

well pal we can't keep going into space to change batteries , the caesium is long lasting

Given someone's doctor appointment at 10:30 on Tuesday morning -- and all the other human preparation for the future -- surely not.

CUSTOMER #1: "Why did you weigh your apples on the oranges scale?"

CUSTOMER #2: "Huh? It's for apples, too."

CUSTOMER #1: "No, it's not."

CUSTOMER #2: "Yes, it is."

CUSTOMER #3: "Impossible. This bag of bananas can't weigh that much."

10.30 on Tuesday morning is not guaranteed to be there , you are counting your chickens before they been hatched . Look behind you when you walk and see your past location that co-exists in your present and future location . However you might age less !

No.
The "question" is meaningless.
No.
The word is "populace".
Ya think?

Time is measured. Measuring history? What is the definition?

Presently , ''Time in physics is defined by its measurement: time is what a clock reads.[1] In classical, non-relativistic physics, it is a scalar quantity (often denoted by the symbol {\displaystyle t}
