Does Time exist?

February 14, 2010 at 06:54 (Uncategorized)

How much time do you spend in a day worrying about the time? Often we notice the time and wonder how we will fit in all the things we need to do or what needs to be done.  Does time exist though…. What is time and where did it come from?

Time is described as an indefinite period.  When you think of time what do you think of?  I imagine the past, future and present, where history has occurred and stories have been told and recorded, where people grow, learn and opportunities and possibilities have been created.  Does this mean that time exists though…

Maybe there is no such thing as Time, that this element that is called Time does not exist.  Perhaps humans use Time to reference events that have happened. The earth has been around for billions of years and perhaps people have developed this concept called Time in order to be able to define activities and to help keep track and control of historical events and when they occurred.  We as people live in the moment, there is no past, future or present, these are just names that have been created to give humans a sense of control.   The idea of Time was created so that we can refer to things that have happened in the world, it is not a physical thing.

So no, I don’t think that Time exists, I do think that it was a theory that was created by and for us human beings so that we have a sense of direction, so that we can foresee and plan what we would like to do because without this concept we would not be able to plan, keep track or organise things in advance.  We would have no balance, structure or even goals because we would not know Time and it would throw our whole universal element off balance. What do you think?

    I spend ALL my time worrying about time. Funny thought isn’t it? I like the format you chose to write in… open questions and the like.

    I totally agree with you on this. It’s an interesting concept to wrap your head around but I like how you spoke about it and how you rationalised your thoughts on the matter. Nice choice o topic!
