Countless attempts have been made to explain time by describing the many aspects of it, or how we perceive it, or how we measure it. To date, I don’t know of anyone else who has actually defined time. Time is the delay caused by velocity through space less than the speed of light. Or it may be accurate to say time is the delay caused by not traveling through space at the speed of light, since time would be fastest at zero velocity.
Time is not the consequence of motion, but the lack of enough motion. Since space and time are so intimately connected, we first need to define space.Continue reading “How time actually works”
