Time is something we all (sometimes) don't seem to have enough of! The 3 dimensions of space couldn't exist without time. I think Einstein called it space/time. Time and space probably couldn't exist without eachother. We know there is time, at least linier time, because we 'see' that our bodies age with time. We go only one diretion in time and that is forward. There do seem to be 'times' from the past in our present taking us into the future. That is, the make up of our time has past, present and flows into the future. Are we traveling through time? Or are we in the ever-present now? Time is used in the theory of relativity, which I know very little about. I just know that time goes by. Are we ever in that 'plank lenght' milli second between past and future time? We use the past to get to the future but are we really anywhere in time? I don't think we made up time for we percieve it by the perpondrance of the evidence. (see above). Time is real within the universe. Time travel into the past and future is facinating. But we are always traveling 'through' time anyway. Is there something 'wrong' with time or do we have to 'have' it?
