Time is not a man made concept. time exists in the animal and plant kingdom too.
Our units of time are man made.
but that does not devalue the question of when.
@yarnemelk, time is in the eye of the beholder. Literally. It's physics and it's complicated but I love it - had to study it for a presentation about black holes and I wanted to explain stuff like quantum effects, relativity, space time and whatnot. Took me ages to understand it (even though we have quantum physics in school right now but I'm to stupid to understand it) but it's so interesting. I still suck at everything else in physics, though. Fvcking formulas.
But to put it like an intellectual once said: it's all wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.
@A pet named Steve, yes but in that case length is also man made because we designed the measurements
@yarnemelk, oh I'm not saying it's man-made. Only the measurements. Timespace exists on its own, as far as I'm aware, whether humans like it or not haha.
@A pet named Steve, for a my physics final to graduate high school I had to do a full class(45 min) presentations and teach quantum physics it was very interesting to say the least
@BexarMinimum, I love giving presentations, even long ones (longest one I had was 4 class hours haha) though before I actually get to hold it, I'm dying of nervousness. Especially in a subject like physics in which I usually really suck. But yes, quantum physics is a cool topic! I just really don't like formulas haha.
@A pet named Steve, you're trippin me out man
@A pet named Steve, you're thinking of speed. The experience of time depends on the speed relative to another object.
@TomxServo, perceivance of time depends on the speed of the object and witness, yet it's correlated with the bending of time space. It's not only the perceivance, but literally time itself that is being bent. Clocks on planes go faster than clocks on earth because they a) move faster and b) are further away from earth (=bent space time continuum). a) is called Time dilitation, and b) gravitational time dilitation (not sure if that's the correct English word though haha). It depends on both of those factors. If one were to fall into a black hole, he would appear to freeze in time before crossing the event horizon, while he would see the end of the universe happening if it weren't for the black hole blocking his view the closer he gets to it. Man physics is really cool I wish I was smarter so I could research stuff like that ;-;
@A pet named Steve, listen to some audio books while at work if you want to learn more about physics. Although it seems you already got the knowledge.
@TomxServo, honestly I just learned it for my school prez, and my knowledge is rather limited. But I find it super interesting so I'd love to listen to some audio books read books about it. Thanks for the idea with the audio book! I actually had not thought of that yet haha
@A pet named Steve, Michio Kaku is always good. Brian Greene has some stuff. A more engaging book is the Universe In Your Hands.
@TomxServo, Alright thanks!! Will check it out!
Man is she dumb, and a hypocrite...yesterdsy or tomorrow are "whens"
...talk about someone w/ their head shoved pretty far up their "timehole"...
Remember when John Lennon said your last name when he was shot........that’s right Yoko. You only think of yourself.
Watch out John, shots fired. Too soon?
I'm kinda sure thats wrong.
