    Can't , don't expect to , but will change .

    That's the thing . Time is a concept from BB .

    Like him, just empty rhetoric anyone can make on a public forum.

    What do you mean?

    Oh, you mean that BB theory for which you couldn't even provide a list of brilliant critics?

    And time isn't a concept originating from BB theory. It was already firmly established in Newton's time (pun intended).

    Duration , how long something will last , or not etc.

    movement in the end is what is fundamental to everything but space .

    Then I would have a discussion with Newton about time . The essence of time .

    Go right ahead, but I think you'll find that Sir Newton won't be too responsive to your inquiries.

    He would though .

    Time is used flippantly , without any real definition .

    I try to understand what time actually means , the essence of time . And therefore give time a definition . Rather than just being a word , which is tossed around .

    I just provided you with a link which contains a pretty detailed account of how time is used in physics. How is that using time "with any real definition"?

    Please read the link I provided: it's a good starting point for such an endeavor.

    Antonsen clearly showed how a parabolic pattern can be constructed from straight lines and that the number 4/3 by extension is able to form a mathematical object, a mathematical pattern.
    This was a specific response to you post #1264
    But I agree, this has no direct connection to a discussion on the existence of time.

    This was very interesting and informative and I read and listened to the responses and additional embedded clip.

    What I did not yet see (unless I missed it) is a proposition that time might be a purely subjective human experience, IOW, each person lives in their own time frame experience, an emotional experience.

    Why are some people impatient and others display almost infinite patience?

    It's obvious that for some time seems go slow (can't wait for 5pm!) and for others time seems goes fast (is it already 5 pm?)

    Non-sentient objects only move and act but have no real experience of time at all, such as the clock held by the impatient girl. Has this been addressed before or does anyone care to offer a comment?

    Yes, but how does that make a parabola a real, physical object?

    Then we both agree that your post #1261 was mostly irrelevant to the discussion at hand.

    Well the straight lines seemed to produce a real curved 2d plane.
    It was not offered gratuitously and was probably triggered by another post. But I agree it was basically unrelated to the OP question and I wont insist to continue this particular subject.

    See post 1294, where I already returned to the subject of Time.

    Duration is based on time.
    Time is based on becoming.
    Past is evidential. Present is now. Future is potential.

    Without critiquing your post.

    In my proposition of time as a purely individual subjective emotional experience the last sentence could read as; Past events are a memory. Present events are experienced. Future events are anticipated.

    Please show me a photograph of a physical "real curved 2d plane".

    (OK.)

    Don't. It does not work that way.
