I would like to just point out, that I did not state humans made up time (invented it). I stated time (the word) is an adjective used to describe past present and future. Of course time is a constant, but to understand what time IS, we must understand how we define it (being, a tool for measuring events).

Put another way, events are always occuring (such as daylight/night-time), we humans put a tangible word to define the order of events that have occured, are occuring and will occur.
