Time: As evaluated by the people.
Posted 1/1/08 , edited 1/1/08
Time. A simple word of four letters. Time, however, is a much more profound thing than its english monicker. Time is infinite and inescapable. I thought about time and I concluded this: Time has two visible dimensions. One of them is the human creation, the eras and dates: The marking and measuring of time. This is only a way to make time tangible so we humans can understand it. The second dimension is the infinite line of time. Let me explain.

The second dimension of time, as I call it, is the ever moving line that we are trapped in. Even if we go back in time, to a different era, we can never fully go back. We would simply arrive in another era. We would still age, the seconds continue to move forward. In other words, there is no negative distance concerning time. Time is an absolute value: Only positive distance, forward-moving distance. You cannot trully go back. You can only go back on the measurement of time (if it were possible) and time would go on forever. Time never moves backwards.

My conclusion is simple: It should be possible to go back to a previous era or a future era. It, however, is impossible to stop time from moving forward and/or going a negative distance (going back).

What is the evaluation of time by the rest of CR?

EDIT: I did research and found nothing like this. It may belong in the Philosophy thread though....

time is just a myth. time has to be measured in order to exist but with out intellectual thought it can't be measured. you take away the human race (who invented time) and it disappears

the phenomenon that we label time is far behind anything we are currently capable of understanding

I pretty much got what you were saying from the first paragraph. Good rational though but all this talk of time could mean the waste of it. Oh here's something "Every moment you spend wishing you were somewhere else is a moment you can't have back" Cause time keeps on you know. Kinda pathetic thinking of all our possibly time on the earth that we waste.

ah the logic's of science...Time... one of the important aspects of life. Really if you had the power to time travel; you made choose to change whatever you want but with different results when return to your present.

Its like making a decision in life. Once you decide something you can't go back. Time and Decision are equal in a way with positive and negative.

Without Time then we would living in the same day, same time, same season, and so on.

Nicely said Skygod! Better then some other topics with more logic to life.

wow great topic. should time really be measured on a linear scale? Anyway time is so intangeble I can't think of anything else to say

ahahah LOL so true...

Time is distance divided by speed or in more scientific term... displacement divided by the velocity

Time is real. It is something that is there. Look at it mathmatically. If you graph something time is always the constant, something that the other axis is based off of. EXCEPT in one case. According to Einstein if you graph the speed of light and time, the speed of light is the constant. So time is measured in terms of speed of light. Making it something that is there.

my Physics prof once said time can actually stop for you if you go faster than the speed of light. but everyone else still continue to move forward on regular basis.

could there be a philosophical aspect when it regards with time? all i see connected with time is math.

pwnge if someone would start a movement called Timeology.

You have to come close to the speed of light for time to "slow down for you". Time is at an infinite pace though. You'd just be moving so fast that time would stretch for you. That Einstein's theory of relativity I think.

And the study of time or its dates and eras is chronology.

Time is an intellectual concept in which we sequence and quantify events.It is not an entity,object, or a container. xD timeology
