Ok, but my point is that we do move through time. It just happens to be a one-way line. We can alter our "speed" through time relativistically (via time dilation).

By the way, you also can't define your "speed" in space without invoking the dimension of time. Defining speed/velocity requires considering spacetime.

I think a coordinate is just a point in a dimension(s). You have a particular coordinate in the timeline of the universe. The laws of nature allow/force you to positively change your time coordinate (move into the future) at different rates (relativity/time dilation) but do not allow a negative change (going back to the past).
