Hi There, To that which we refer as 'time' at the level of our ordinary wakeful conscious, is fundamentally different than that which Feng & Co is seeking to quantify. In essence, Feng is not quantifying time, per se, but the mechanism (and attendent effects) of entropy. Before the scientist can actually use time as a means of measure, he must discover if time, itself, actually exists. By this I mean, does time exist independently from other quantifiable perceivings, such as 'space' and 'motion'? In other words, the question asked is...does time exist as an independent reality? If we disco... [More]

My friend and I came up with this question when we were 13. I was 13 and he was 15. The answer we came up with what that there was no time. It's just energy that moves and converts. Basically the only way that time regulates it's speed is by our perception of it. Otherwise without consciousness the universe would be over in an instant, not even an instant. It would be as if it doesn't exist. My friend realised that present is an instant wear future is converted to past. However one problem arised... how long was an instant of present. Were was that point wear it got converted. There is no poin... [More]

This is a good reason to not worship time ,In any form or function.Time as they say waits for no one. Collect all your senses and sit down in a very quite room clear your mind of all thoughts,take a deep breath and just listen to your heart beat. Really listen little rythms of life telling you that you matter to the universe.try this for a few moments each day.You will know time is all yours to be within.One cannot waste time like this Its your quality Time.Just a time tip from a freind. Remember we invented the keeping of time. Let it go!

Interesting discussion. Yes, I would say time only exists as our perception. The "past" is over, the "future" is non-existant. The only there is, ever has been, or ever will be (relatively speaking) is this instant. And as soon as you perceive that, the moment has passed and you are in another. Is this what people talk about when they're high on weed?
