    A confusion between time and age and change

    Change happens

    Any changes between arbitrary NOWS is labelled with arbitrary units of AGE

    AGE is not TIME

    From my collection of short explanations l pick the one below which has been used in other threads

    Doing some mental gymnastics about the arrow of time.

    From my readings I don't believe it exist as in a arrow moving from the past into the future

    This puzzles some as to why the movement is not reversible.

    But the visualisation is suitable for describing the idea.

    Here goes.

    Coming from the past were a gazillion possibilities which distilled down to ONE NOW reality.

    We live inside that ONE NOW reality

    From that NOW reality looking to the future a gazillion possibilities can be seen.

    What I find wondrous is the smoothness of the transition between past and future.

    The gazillion arrows coming from the past turn into ONE ----> NOW.

    NOW instantly turns into a gazillion possibilities.

    No matter how I zoom down to where PAST butts against FUTURE I cannot see a gap/line between them.

    NOW does not have any "thickness".

    As I have noted elsewhere when you make a movie of reality no matter how fast you push the film through the camera when you examine the film you have a series of still shots.

    No one has made a reply to the questions I posed:-

    Can you make a movie of reality which does not contain frames?

    If so how?

    And what does the film look like?

    PAST does not exist
    FUTURE does not exist
    Only NOW exist

    The future will BECOME the past. Should you want to change the past you must influence the future.

    Even clocks do not measure time: they measure changes in space (the Earth movement around the Sun.)

    Time is POTENTIAL. To "have time" simply means you have not yet died...

    This is not true.

    They may be calibrated to conveniently match our day/night cycle, but what they are measuring is time.

    What about conspiracy? e.g: conspiracy to commit murder - no murder has actually taken place, but you can still be charged and imprisoned for such things.

    So if time travel was illegal and you had plans to do it, you could be charged with conspiracy to travel through time
