Much of the science on the internet makes the mistake of thinking that time exists without clocks. Listen, when I say clocks, I mean any device that shows the time. I don't know where we can find the time except on our tools?

Scientists think that time is something that just exists in the same way that gravity exists. I can relate to this thought, "I think therefore I am, and therefore time exists'."

Consider that only clocks show the time, and why does gravity change a clock's time if time is natural energy? How can gravity change time? Einstein made the mistake of thinking that speed changes time, but gravity changes a clock's time. It’s an easy mistake, and we are all making the same mistake.

Time and the clock’s time are two different things. Gravity affects matter like clocks, not time or space. The biggest mistake Einstein made was thinking time has the power to change physical things. Thus he used the error of time in equations without knowing his mistake.

Gravity affects clocks, and the display of time changes. Gravity doesn't affect the abstract idea of time because time isn't a physical thing; it's a number. We don't know what causes gravity, but we can measure gravity, and, strangely, we don't know the meaning of time. The bottom line is that time is what a clock shows, and it's relative to the force of gravity.

## Gravity Controls The Time

The force of gravity controls the rate of a clock's time. But what’s important is that time doesn’t have the power to change a physical object or change your age. Remember the James Bond movie when 007 was strapped to a turntable designed to test an astronaut's endurance. He almost died but was saved just in the nick of time. It shows that we can’t survive a strong force of gravity for very long.

The centrifugal force and the force of acceleration are pseudo forces that materialize only during an action, but the force is equivalent to gravity. Remember, Einstein said acceleration is the same as gravity. The big difference is that gravity is always a force, while acceleration is a temporary pseudo force.

It’s been estimated that humans wouldn’t survive a long-term force greater than two times Earth’s gravity. That being said, gravity is the force that controls life, and time is the measurement of how long we live.

Gravity is possibly the only thing that has two energies at the same time.  The mass of an object has energy E=mc2, and the mass has gravity. The energy and the force of gravity originate from matter. I think it's the only force that just is and affects every single particle in the universe.

Sorry, Einstein, it doesn't involve space or time, and you can't use time to change or move things. Time is a concept that we have been using as an energy or a force. We say time is money, and time waits for no one. We have many relationships with time, but we don't understand the severity or gravity of them.

## How did the introduction of time benefit humanity?

Timekeeping is necessary for humans to thrive and evolve in society. But we should realize that time has no physical qualities. It exists only in your beating heart and on timekeeping tools. It’s about time you accept that time is only a number on a clock.

Time has no power to change anything; time can stop, slow down, or speed up, but it cannot make you older or younger. Time is a measurement of motion and events, and we use the time to keep track of our daily events.

You are here to experience your life with motion and action. Time is a measurement of your events, and time measures your age. Your life ends when the physical and emotional stress of living stops your heart.

The universe keeps moving forward without time. The power of gravity moves our planet and the stars, and life goes on without time.

## What causes your perception of time?

Our planet's daily rotation has a rhythm of sunlight, temperature, and ocean tides that affect your activities. Circadian rhythms are 24-hour cycles of the body’s internal clock, running in your mind to carry out essential functions and processes.

One of the most necessary and well-known circadian rhythms is the sleep-wake cycle. The body's circadian rhythm is connected to your internal clock in the brain called the hypothalamus.

Your perception of time comes from the 24-hour cycle of Earth. The circadian rhythms of light and darkness are then stored in your brain, controlling your daily activities.

We also have a beating heart that has a pulse similar to the motion of our planet. Together, we feel and see motion, and we think of it as time passing. But it’s the motion moving in and around us that’s passing.

We think of it as time and invent clocks to measure the speed of motion. Now we are fooled into thinking that time is something that moves. But it’s the motion that moves, and we use clocks to measure the motion and call the measurement “time.” Will we wake up someday and know the truth about time?

## When things move and change, is it true that time does not exist and time is not passing?

That’s a great question. We have been confused, thinking that time makes things happen, but time is the measurement of motion based on the motion of Earth. Time is a way to describe the action and duration of motion. Try to realize that motion and change are the things that happen to matter.

We use clocks to keep track of our daily events, and we use timekeeping to document the events as history. We see and feel the motion and think that time is passing, but it's the motion that moves, and we explain the motion using time.

Everything has a frequency of motion. The quarks and electrons in matter move at the speed of light, and photons move at various frequencies to show all the colors in the world. Time is the measurement of how fast a frequency moves.

We need timekeeping tools to keep track of our daily events. Nature doesn’t rely on time, the Sun keeps shining, and we keep asking what time is it?

## Does time exist, and if it doesn't, then why does it slow down in the presence of gravity?

Time only exists on clocks. People seem to think that time is the same as motion. Clocks tick slowly in greater gravity and tick faster in less gravity. Motion and gravity exist. Clocks tick, showing numbers, and we use them to measure change and motion.

Time is what a clock shows. Time is an invention to measure the motion we see and feel. So time doesn’t exist without clocks.

Time can move faster or slower on a clock, depending on the force of gravity. But the universe has an absolute motion and an absolute age that moves at the speed of light, from the beginning of the Big Bang event to this present moment.

"Time" itself 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.

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, and we use that time to measure everything else in the universe.

Thanks for your time and understanding. It's challenging to think that time isn't what we have thought it to be. Give it time, lol.
