Hi Yanniru
You write,"Time is measured by the frequency of light. If time did not exist, then rainbows would not exist."

What do you mean by saying,"Time is measured by the frequency of light." By whom is it measured that way, and how does "measuring it cause it to "exist?" Our clocks are based on a division of periods derived from solar orbit, earth rotation, and our love of certain numbers, nicht wahr?
Atomic decay serves to establish precision of our conventional, agreed-upon, arbitrary "time"...does the measurement of light frequency do more than the measurement of atomic decay to establish universal time?
