We can begin to answer the question with the basic description that we are measuring the interval between events, using units that we have chosen for the purpose. We may say, for example, that the next bus will be due in 5 minutes. While this information may be very useful for telling us how late the bus is when it eventually arrives, it does nothing to describe just what it is that we are measuring.

Are you trying to prove this is a boring thread - or just suffer from amnesia?

So are you saying that the measurement of time is not valid?

I didnt say it was boring. I asked if you were trying to prove it was boring.

Why so serious?

You have not answered my questions in my OP. You have answered:

1) How does time flow?
2) Does time flow in only one direction?
3) Is there a constant 'Universal' time?
4) Is time a 'real' dimension?

I don't care about these segments of time, i would like to have a discussion on the points i raised in my OP.

And............

i think the sun dials explain the process of time quite well

LMAO!

You really don't have a clue, do you?

Time does not exist, it's just a method to organise events in a format that appears logical to the human brain.
