Einstein said “…for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.”
And from another site: “Roughly speaking, the problem is that in the equations of modern quantum-relativity physics there is no time. You have changing states of being, but no state is intrinsically “later” or “earlier” than any other. Time is just the fourth dimension of space, and in theory it is possible to return to any earlier period of spatialized “time”, in the same way that it is possible, on a plain, to move from point a to point b and back.”
Was Einstein essentially saying that time is an illusion? An illusion means that one is being convinced that something that doesn’t exists actually does. Certainly time exists, no?
