  1. If the concept of time existed only for humans, how would the world have changed before our appearance? And it looks as if it's changing. How would it even be possible for us to appear in a frozen world without time?

  2. Science openly declares that time exists if there are at least two points in space.

    That is, time is an abstract component of the Mind in thinking about space.

    If there are two points and space is limited by them, then time is,


    if these points do not exist, and they exist only in the consciousness of the Mind, then there is no Time.

    The question talks about infinity as a time component, but this is not true.

    One can speak of infinity only in the absence of time, and therefore only space can be infinite.

    And in infinite space, there are no ” IFS ” – no reference points, not even a single point, which means that time as such does not exist.

    Time occurs only for end objects that can generate such points.

    A person is finite and is able to create abstract limitations-points in his consciousness, since this is not alien and familiar to him, and the concepts of beginning and end do not seem abstract and are absolutely natural and real for him.


    Space is not a Person and has no restrictions in any direction, there are no Ifs and no points – not even one, everything and everywhere is space and there is no time.

  3. There is no time. It can only be created by counting down the moments of something.

    There is even such a book by the famous physicist “How people create time”, or something like that, in English. For us humans, time is important. Because we have memories and desires. We need to get somewhere and do something. After all, we are not eternal. If humans lived as long as the stars did, we would rule out time as a fiction.

    What is day and night? We see them and count down the time as a new day, every night.

    But what is day and night if we go beyond the Earth? There is no day and night. We see a planet that is illuminated by the sun, which is always day. It's an endless day in the sun.

    Day and night, as well as time, are invented only by people. For our convenience.

    For the universe, there is no time at all. There is only movement. This movement, for example, of particles of atoms and other things, is just a movement in closed cycles. Molecules and atoms fly in a space where there is nothing. Even Einstein said that “time is only an illusion” and said that for photons and other particles, time does not exist.

    For the entire universe and all particles, there is no time, there is movement and energy that allows you to move. This is an endless series of movements in which everything changes. And by these changes, we count down time for ourselves, like by heartbeats, hourglasses, or atomic clocks

  4. Yes, but not only for a person, but for all living things that have a memory.

    To have the concept of “time”, you need to be able to compare the past and the present, i.e. information about the past must be stored and analyzed somewhere.

    For example, looking at the second hand, you need to “see” how it goes from the past to the present, otherwise we would only have instant photos.

    And another point: memory creates a sense of space in our brain. An instant photo is always flat, and processing two photos in motion forms the concept of depth of space.

    For example, a person who uses one eye for a long time loses the sense of depth in an unusual environment. He may make mistakes in his movements. Miss, or push objects with your hand, if you want to take something in your hand. Without memory (time), thinking is impossible, and therefore a person's personality is impossible.

  5. Time is a sequence of events reflected in a person's mind. Where there are no events, there is no time. And where there is no consciousness, there is also no time.

  6. Our world and time are an anomaly.The real world is static and there is no change in it .Most likely, our universe is like a hologram and consists of information.The future creates the past and vice versa .

  7. We did not invent time, but how to measure it, so that it would be more convenient to exist in it. The photon has no time, but both it and time exist.

    And how and most importantly WHEN a person would appear if there was no time.

    Or did we and time and everything around us appear at the same time?

  8. I wrote here in this post my vision of this issue,in one of the comments. You can read it.After all, animals live like that without time, they don't look at the clock,and nothing,everything is fine.

  9. Time is a reflection of the movement of our universe in the 4th dimension, which we perceive as time. If we consider our space closed, that is, all three spatial dimensions are closed, then someday the 4th dimension will also be closed. Time, like all movement, will stop. The universe, as it is now, will cease to exist. That's my theory.

  10. The concept of “eternal” implies the category of time, and we still come to the beginning of the question. There are several “arrows of time” – thermodynamic (very roughly speaking, everything collapses over time), cosmological (the universe expands), causal, and so on. How much are these axes identical (as, for example, the inertial and gravitational mass are identical) still to be sorted out. Which of these axes a person uses for his perception of time is an interesting question, it seems to me that it is thermodynamic. Will there be a universe without observers? Modern physics says it will. Whether it will change-yes. Will it last forever? According to modern concepts, the Universe is expanding with rooting, the gravitational forces are not enough to keep it in a “stable state”, so it is quite possible that in the future there will come a time when there will be no more changes at all, then it will be impossible to talk about time – all the physical phenomena that determine these axes will simply stop happening – time will “close”.

  11. There is Divine Predestination and human free will. The contradiction between them can be eliminated if we assume that time is reversible. God is omnipotent, which means that He can make the former nonexistent, etc. Assuming the reversibility of time, one can better understand the relationship between the temporal and the eternal, i.e., the earthly and the divine.
