Philo, I have to agree with Greg on this one. Time is a physical construct, it is affected by gravity, velocity etc. Or is it that our perception of it is affected by the above? It is relevant only from our own perspective in space/time. For ex., someone traveling at the speed of light from the outer most edge of the universe would arrive here almost instantaneously from his own perspective, but from ours his trip would take billions of yrs. That is why when you say the universe is billion of yrs old, the statement is only relative from our particular perspective.
