  • Time is a concept, it doesn't exist.

    People have invented time to keep track of past events and predict future events, how can time exist? Simple it can't, things just move on there own, if time were to exist, it would be possible to time travel, and we would see it, and different species might experience time in different speeds.

  • It's All Relative

    Time, as we measure it, is just a relative scale that measures the actual passing of time. We could have created a system of 10-hour days with 144 minutes each, or 240 hours with 6 minutes each. Either way, we just have a scale of measuring it. Is it really that big of a deal?

  • Time is not perceptible in a vacuum.

    So, There’s a great documentary on Netflix called Most Uknown. It tackles time twice in a way that I really like.

    Clocks - these are sensors they help us know the time but they will run faster in space and slower near dense mass.

    Perception - If you’ve ever had the day slip away from you, You’ve experienced the fact that without looking at a clock at regular intervals, We lose all concept of time. In the documentary I mentioned they show that when trying to perceive time lapse that our brain doesn’t light up at all under an MRI. This means while actively thinking about time our minds don’t experience time.

    Here’s the mistake most people make. There are signs of the passage of time everywhere. But that’s not time. A mountain erodes. . . Over time. But you can’t point at it and say “Time” you can only say “Erosion” because that’s what it is.

    What I wonder is what the passage of time looks like in the deepest of space where there is no mass. It should be extremely fast, But you need to send someone out there to measure it. The only trouble is when your there Relativity comes into play.

  • Time is a man-made concept for a natural thing

    We made up the dates for the time but it did start out with a natural base. Take an animal for example it has no concept of time it just know to sleep when its dark and wake up when its light. We just took the time it is in a day for example and turned it into time.

  • Time is merely a construction made by man to help us stay organized and survive.

    Need proof? Look no further than the theory of relativity itself. The theory of relativity essentially boils down to time changes based on perception. The key word being perception. Time changes based on how we perceive it. If time was an actual tangible thing, then it would not be changeable by our perception, but it does. Why? Because time was something we made up. We looked at our world and tried to structure it in a way that made sense. What we perceived to be time was time, and has been time ever since we conceptualized it. Time is a beautiful man-made concept that has allowed us to survive and thrive, but its a human invention all the same. Now some people may argue that the same thing could be said about gravity. Gravity is only what we perceived as gravity, a construct of our imagination designed to help us understand our world. The difference between gravity and time is that gravity has measurable effects that can be re-created time and time again. It exists everywhere and there is irrefutable proof for it. Time, on the other hand, does not have any tangible evidence. Only what we perceive to be as time.

  • Everything is relative

    Time cannot be related to any measurement or anything in space. Therefore time is a man made ideology.Time is just a way humans cope with the idea that we dont know what and when things will occur. When people say that be base it of the fact that it takes 24 hours for the earth to complete a full rotation. Well who invented the fricken hour.

  • Time is a manmade construct

    We like to think that there is a present, past, and future, but truly, none of these exist. The past has "happened" already. That plane no longer exists, nor did it exist when it was the present, because the "present" does not exist either. What is the present? Now is the present, but that was a second ago, which was the past. See what i'm saying? The future does not exist either because it has not "happened" nor will it because neither plain of time exists by itself.

  • Now Now Now Now

    The past is a memory of "Now" moments. The future is "Now" moments that have yet to happen, but I'm confusing time with memories, or complicating memories with time. Either way, only the Now is measurable, and then pass into a stored thought. So time doesn't exist in the past, and the future has too many variables to be able to predict...Only expect.

  • Since only Now exists, time logically can not.

    This basically means that everything happens simultaneously, which actually legitimize the theories of time travelling which would not be possible if things that had happened did so in a linear time frame. That would mean, that the past was the past and was gone forever and thus physically impossible to revisit. But since time is a merely a concept helping us to keep track of memories and imaginations about the future, time travelling also is a a construction. There is no time to travel through. Its simply about shifting conception or dimension or what to call it. Well, this is where it gets tough because reality is really beyond our comprehension and language is only assisting in blocking the way! But time being just a construction helps to explain the idea of travelling between past and future events since these events are actually all happening Now. This also explains the phenomenon of deja vu being nothing but a perception tilt back and forth.

  • What the f*ck is all this time is man made sh*t?

    Before humans arrived, are u saying that there was no time? If time didn't exist before humans turned up, how would dinosaurs and stuff have time? It is a concept, people can't create it, it always existed but humans just discovered it. I think that this is ridiculous. Drop the mic.

  • Time is real

    The thing is, we know time passes, we measure it in seconds and minutes and hours, etc. But also just like mass, we also measure it in grams and pounds. But we made it up, the definition a gram that is, same for pound. The measurement of mass and time and length, etc. was definitely man-made. But that doesn't mean mass or length doesn't exist. Time exists in nature. Humans just measure it.

  • Time is real.

    According to Stephen Hawking time moves slower in far-out space. He used an analogy with twins to describe this. If one twin went far out in to space and one stayed on earth, and then seeming only to be a few years on earth passed, the twin that went into space would have aged considerably more than the twin that stayed on earth. Time is not a man made concept, it exists and moves the universe forward.

  • Time is dimension

    Time is a dimension, we perceive time as instances of our 3d universe. If there were a universe with time as its 4th the would see like we see depth or height. And they could alter it and damage it. They would seem like gods we are confide to out universe but if we could exist with beings in lower universes we would seem like gods being able to appear and disappear as we would operate above them. But they wouldn't be able to perceive that.

  • Without time the universe would be static

    As others have stated our arbitrary measurements for time as we perceive it are man made constructs. Time as the fourth dimension of space and time exists a priori to humans actual perceptuon of it. Time also is not a line that can be traveled back and forth on but is a ray segment that moves foward at the "now" interval. Yes it is true that time as it is experienced is relative to the speed an individual is traveling, their mass and the affects of gravity on that individual. But time as an universal block of space and time is continuous and consistent.

  • Time is real

    It existed even before humans existed! Not many can anticipate it because not many have abstract thinking else everyone would have been New torn or Einstein! We know any process is not instantaneous and time is the book keeping fourth dimension! Whenever we refer to chemical,physical, biological process we are referring to the evolution in that fourth dimension!
    To understand time we need to make the skeptic people stand outside of restroom and when they want to go in! They will understand the meaning of time! It is real but relative and STR/ GTR describes it beautifully!

  • Depends on how you define time

    I think the answer to this question very much depends on the way we define time. One could define time as an interval between to events. Here the quantification of an interval is definitely man made. However, I see time more abstract as the change of things itself. For me no time would mean no change in anything. Therefore I say time itself is not a man made construct, since things changed even before we existed. Nevertheless the quantification of intervals in time is man made.

  • Time is a measurement

    Sure, the measurements of time are manmade. Actual time though is not. Humans figured out that it takes the earth 24 hours to rotate once, therefore they named it one day. Humans broke down the measurements we use for time. Remember just because we name something doesn't mean we created it
