# Do You Understand Time?

"Time" is absolute and moves at a constant motion at the speed of light. We call the motion "time," but it’s motion, and we measure motion with clocks. (Erik Lovin)

Motion moves. Time doesn’t move. You cannot measure time because it’s already a measurement.

Clocks tick at the rate of the earth’s motion, and we call it time. Then we use the time on our clocks to measure the speed of everything else in the universe, and to measure distances, we use the speed of light.

We say it’s 5 light-years to the nearest star. So it would take light 5 years to travel to our destination. And that's how we came to think that time can measure distances, but it's not true.

Light measures distances and one meter is the distance light moves in 1/299 792 846th of a second if the measuring clock is at standard gravity, pressure, and temperature.

But in physics, "everything" is relative in a very particular way.

Everything is relative to the speed of light, which is the same in every reference frame, but we haven't been able to measure the speed of light in one direction of motion.

Wait a minute.

Light is the absolute motion limit in the universe. The motion depends upon your vantage point, but the universe has absolute motion, which is absolute time.

## Does Time Move at Different Rates? Does the Universe have one Present “Moment,” or does Time Exist everywhere at Different Moments?

You think time has the physical power to cause events. Time doesn’t move because time is a measurement of motion. The motion is moving, and the time on a clock is moving.

The confusion is solved when you realize clocks can move faster or slower because clocks tick relative to the force of gravity. Clocks measure the speed of motion, and the measurement is called time.

The present moment in the universe moves at the same speed everywhere.

Stop thinking that time is moving. It's the motion that’s moving.

The fastest motion in the universe is the speed of light, and the universe moves forward at the speed of light.

The universe has an absolute moment of motion that is the exact moment everywhere. This moment moves at the speed of light into the future, and we could call it the movement of absolute simultaneity.

The electrons in your body are moving at the speed of light around atoms, and quarks are oscillating inside your atoms at the speed of light. Sunlight is moving toward us, and only this present moment exists.

You are a human being experiencing life in slow motion. You live in the motion of the universe at each present moment.

You and I use the time to keep track of our daily events but let's start to think of motion as our reality.

## Is Everything a Function of Time?

We define everything in physics by motion and energy. Scientists use a clock to measure the speed of objects and the duration of chemical events.

The concept of time comes from the daily motion of the Earth. Our invention of clocks allows us to measure and label motion into personal moments.

We use clocks that show the time, and time lets us describe everything we see and do. Time is how we define and describe events in our life.

The only way we can easily understand events is to label them with time using timekeeping tools.

Time is a measurement of motion and energy, but it’s easier to describe any motion with clocks. The time on a clock shows how fast things move as a function of time instead of motion and energy.

We need timekeeping tools like clocks and calendars to keep track of our daily events.

Time is our way of labeling the things that we do daily, but we make the mistake of thinking time makes things happen.

The reality is that time is a number that describes our events. But the motion of events is caused by a force of energy.

## Are we Stuck in the Present Moment, or are we Moving into the Future?

You could say we are always in the present motion of the universe. The past is our history, and we will never reach the unknown future. The entire universe moves forward at the same rate of motion everywhere.

The fastest motion possible is the speed of light, and light never moves backward or faster than the motion of the universe because the future hasn't happened yet.

Light can't move faster than the "Time" of the universe that moves at the speed of light.

You and I can never have a chronological age older or younger than the universe's motion. Time dilation only happens to clocks, but the effects of gravitational time dilation act on all matter.

Thus, the force of gravity and temperature will change matter into different energy levels, but the energy remains the same age as the present moment of the universe.

Enjoy your time now. That's all we have.

## Is the Universe Experiencing Things Simultaneously?

Yes, the only logical answer is that the universe has absolute time. Don't use the word time because time is used to measure speed, but time doesn’t cause motion.

The motion and entropy from the start of the universe are moving forward everywhere at the same rate.

The speed of the motion is the speed of light, and we live in the present moment of the universe.

On this week's science news, they witnessed a supernova reaction that was happening about 120 million years ago, and the light just reached us a few weeks ago.

Amazing! No matter how large the universe is, we see the events of the universe when the motion reaches us at our present moment.

## Is Universal Time different at different places?

The confusion that Einstein had with time is still present today.

Time and clocks are not separate things.

A clock is a physical device subject to the force of gravity, just like we are. A clock ticks slower in a stronger gravity field where we would also have difficulty moving.

If a clock slows down dramatically in stronger gravity, you can be sure that your beating heart will also stop.

Time is what a clock shows. Time is a measurement of motion based on the motion of the earth.

We use the time to keep track of our daily events and timekeeping tools to record our history and plan for our future.

The invention of clocks and timekeeping is essential in our modern society, but the time on clocks is not universal time.

Time doesn’t exist anywhere else in the universe.

The universe's motion moves with an absolute speed in a forward direction of entropy, and the universal time (motion) is the same everywhere.

The universe's age moves at the same rate at each planet, star, or space.

Humans live under a veil of forgetfulness, using time as a memory of life, without knowing our life takes place in the universe's motion.

The Summary of this article is to question your understanding of time. The major point is that time cannot cause events.

Time only exists on clocks and tools that show the time. Stop counting your age with clocks and calendars if you want to be younger.

This article is partly copied from my new book Einstein: Misled By Time. The publication date is getting closer and I hope you are curious about the subject of time.

Thanks for being here to witness my publication journey.  Take care, be well, and see you next week. https://lovinthings.com/
