Re: It's Just a Matter of Time
What is time? Time is a word we use to describe the observation of movement -- change. Time is derivative of movement, and not the other way around.
There is no such thing as time as a dimension, except as a mathematical and linguistic convenience. There is no past, present, or future, just the state of relationships of particles to one another.
Matter moves. Substance and energy are sufficient to explain time. As a concept, time is useful, but not strictly a necessary feature of a functional universe.
