How much do we actually know?

Did you know that some physicists don’t believe in “time”? They only believe in “now”.  “Time” is merely an interval connecting two “now” moments.

The theory continues, but it’s a bit advanced for this garbage guy.  Good thing I chose a business career instead of a physics career.

Essentially as time can’t really be measured, it doesn’t exist.  The saying “time flows like a river” is kind of meaningless because a river flows at a rate you can measure.  Liters per second for instance.  You can’t measure time in this way.  There are hours, minutes, days etc. but these are only intervals; the time that passes between 2 points.  You can’t have seconds per second.

Interesting.
