What you said contradicts each other.
"Time does not exist, it is just a measure of the past, present and future"
It is because time exists that it measures the past present and future. If it didn't exist then there will be no measurement of the past, present and future. So I don't exactly understand what it was that made you think all throughout your class.

But the above poster pretty much got it on the dot. The speed of light and the speed of anything and everything is measured by time. Time is a basic yet a huge tool used in physics.

Of course it does! Time, itself, as in the word and what we use it for, is a unit of measurement in regards to what goes by, the amount of "time", as we call it. But it has to exist, otherwise, what would this be, right here that's passing, has passed, and will pass? As stated by others, the statement itself is a contradiction. It is a measurement of present, past, and future, and a big tool in daily life, physics, and many other things.

The reason why it got stuck in my head was because I usually don't think of stuff like that so when i heard it i thought about it for abit.
My friend meant that time isn't like an object, its not in front of us so we can't see it, giving the illusion that it doesn't exist but still measures past present and future
My thought was what I said that he meant

Funnily enough there is so little time itself to think about these things, life is short enough as it is.

Time does not exist it is just a concept we created as a measurement. Think of this how would you tell time if the earth didn't revolve around the sun? How would you know when it is morning or night? If you say you would use a clock well then how would you set that clock?

People have created many different kinds of measurements based on what we know and we continue to use many of them today. A measurement is not tangible but it still exists because we created it. What you measure is an entirely different story...
