I put this in GD, since i figure on no definite answer. Not really something to debate, but sometimes I think too much and I’m currently having problems with time. Reading threads that said “the big bang created time” and Sci-Fi with talk about additional dimensions make my head hurt. So I wonder - does time exist, except as an abstraction, invented by humans?
We use time to make the society function (timetables, meetings, agendas ASF), we use it in physics and related sciences to make things work. We define one second as 9,192,631,770 cycles of radiation associated with the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium-133 atom, which of course amounts to is finding something that is one second long.
But is there really any such things as time? The more I think about it, the more it seems I’m doing curcular reasoning. The universe doesn’t give a damn about time, it just is.
Or maybe I just need a girlfriend.
