Time is a verb.

For over a thousand years science has come no closer to defining what time is, And I think I know why. We are trying to define time as a noun, When it's actually a verb. Time is something we do. It's our motion through the temporal dimension. Please do not accept unless you intend to provide valid arguments why my idea is invalid. ...

Did you know the numbers have an end? If the time stopped and the night were lasting by counting then the digits have no end; but sunrise is a proof that the time passes and the digits have an end, Though keeping counting the time doesn"t stop but it keeps moving without stopping nor coming back. And in view of the expiration of a period then the absolute counting is a time and counting an existing thing cannot be unknown, For example counting sand grains in the beach, Or counting th...
