    Duration exists without an observer .

    Time is subjective to the beings observation and position in their solar system .

    no. was directed at River ✓

    Thanks understood. I have river on Iggy hence my disconnect

    in short
    my point is that does time exist without an observer ?


    In short
    My position on TIME is well known

    TIME does not exist - period

    The only contrebution a intelligent sentient being brings is the ability to construct a arbitrary system of measurement to indicate AGE (existence) of physical items or detectable features of the Universe

    For something to exist it has physicality and can be detected

    No physicality or detectablity it does not exist

    As a example of something said to exist, LOVE, but does not exist. The reason for the confusion LOVE is a PROCESS not a INGREDIENT

    I'm sure you can think of other examples

    As far as emotions being time sensertive or time locked (correct me if this is incorrect reading by me)

    I recall watching the moon landing but it does not really feature in my life

    However watch a repeat and not only the emotions (plural) return but the memory of where I was and what I was doing

    Truth is I can recall what I was doing on demand as it relates to other frequent doings. In those moments the moon landing comes in second so to speak

    Enough raving

    Nearly coffee time

    Time does not exist .

    But does exist for those who measure duration , from the subatomic to the macro . That is the problem .

    you are pretty spot on.

    as for love.(i am just musing on a biological level)
    my opinion is that love is a emotion of a higher brain function.
    like one might be capable of negotiation to create a better result for all partys.
    practical example 1 person sees a group of people and can percieve a better outcome for all,
    meanwhile various other partys only see conflict and opposing immovable concepts.
    love being an emotion that delivers a better result for all partys.

    while many like to lay claim to stating that love is something for all and something that all can freely have or choose.
    i wonder if its potential is more like an ability to comprehend something like a trait towards an ability.
    some(many ? given the right environment) may learn it
    some may have it as a natural ability
    some may never be capable of it
    various assortments inbetween etc etc...

    can we reverse the equation to deliver a zero sum event that is reliant on time ?

    My ignorance shows here as I cannot think of a equation with TIME within

    Reliant on AGE perhaps - I'm thinking here the half-life of elements

    probably pragmatism rather than ignorance.
    i was being a little arguementative & flippant.

    0 divided by distance
    0 minus a distance
    infinity...
    etc...
    is time interchangable with the value of 0 ?

    Since there are no units of TIME, only arbitrary units of AGE

    0 divided by distance
    0 minus a distance
    infinity...
    etc...
    is time interchangable with the value of 0 ?

    such questions not sense make

    if we observe a difference in entropy (a quantitative mass eg the sun and its state of decay as you alluded to)
    now we remove ourselves from the point of observer.
    what have we removed ? time ?
    nothing ?

    You have already answered - now we remove ourselves from the point of observer

    The flow of change is time or becoming

    and the ESSENCE of time is change because of the movements and interactions between objects .

    The observer does not have to be human. I am aware of animal time travellers, even flora. ☺

    The physical equation is:

    Speed=distance/time (miles per hour.)

    They have told me they are here, from the future. There's a dog and a plant. ☺

    Is the plant the dog version of a human Porta-Potty?

    Time difference certainly exists as a symbolic relationship of energy/sound/matter/quantum/light/frequencies sequentially absorbed by the body's senses and arranged inside of the mind.
    Outside of the mind all this energy/sound/matter/quantum/light/frequencies are always present in a constantly shifting state based on the positive and negative reactions taking place everywhere in the universe at the same time.
