Our human CONCEPT OF TIME is derived from the REALITY of MOTION*As soon as we open our eyes, after birth, we see days and nights, which as every adult knows, are due to the spinning motion of earth.
Then within months our memory develops and registers the succession in which these days and nights occur.
Now couple years later, still not knowing about earth's motion, we are taught to speak and told that that succession is time.
While young we also become aware of the seasons, which as every adult knows, are coincidental to earth's revolution around the sun and in spite of the fact that this new motion has nothing to do with earth's spin we are nevertheless taught years are also time.
Even though days and years are the effects of 2 non coincidental motion-phenomenon, we're taught to call them with the same word time, and that leads us naturally toward thinking there is only one time.
Then we're also taught our own body is growing in time, in spite of the fact that the biological process of duplication of cells behind our growth has nothing to do with the rotational motion of earth on itself let alone with the motion of earth around the sun!
The word time, in effect gets engraved within our young minds way before we have any chance to realize it embodies a bunch of various yet distinct physical phenomenon. Better (or worse?) yet, time becomes a concept de facto as solid as rock in our minds.
Because it transcends all these various physical phenomenon and more, the concept (no longer a word) of time while extremely convenient is also highly rewarding scientifically.
In the end, our idea of time is there to stay! And then our concept of time is taken for granted in science.
And science goes even farther than us laypersons, as the reality of motion has been abolished for good in science! In relativity, motion is relative that is elusive; in the quantum theory, 4 forces are in force, motion is but an ephemeral by-product of these forces.
The fact of the matter is that it takes some work of the mind, which involves real electrical and chemical phenomenon within our head, rather than some time, to realize how artificial or abstract is our language with respect to reality...
In order to get to the point, please skip next line, and continue on to next paragraph.
Click here though for other examples of natural phenomenon that are traditionally identified to time .
To summarize this paragraph:
In REALITY, MOTION is crystal clear, in science physics our CONCEPT OF TIME is fuzzyRichard Feynman, a renown physicist, said " Time is what continues when everything else stops."
As an example the hands of the above clock can stop, we nevertheless think that time goes on.
Please asks yourself this question: Whereas the clock gives the time when it runs, why does it no longer give the time when it stops?
And I am asking you this question: Is that not puzzling?
In physics time runs behind or independently of anything that occurs in the universe.
Lets face it, in physics time is not part of the physical universe not even part of the clock!
Clearly the belief in physics is that time does not exist in the physical universe!
Yet, Einstein's time dilation, in which time is dependent on speed suggests the opposite, it links time to a physical phenomenon.
And Einstein's time dilation, has been verified experimentally.
An atomic clock, which is more accurate than the clock above, placed in a flying plane runs slower than its identical twin at rest on the ground.
Einstein seems to bring back time into the real world, because he mathematically links the time a clock provides to its overall speed or motion.
Actually, TIME DILATION back-fires, and brings us back to GROUND ZEROGROUND ZERO being: Our human CONCEPT OF TIME is derived from the REALITY OF MOTION.
For your information, that which follows, has also been expressed in scientific forums, and has been frankly rejected as being non sense by some!
Be aware, what follows is not at all science interpretation.
And here it is:
Einstein's calculations can be interpreted as showing that the overall motion of the clock slows down the inner motion of the clock, rather than slowing down time.
Einstein's time dilation merely puts in evidence the effect that motion has on motion, as the unwinding of the spring, the discharge of a battery (for electrical clocks) and the vibrations of subatomic particles (for atomic clocks) are all specific cases of motion.
Einstein's calculations are accurate, or coincide to reality, because the overall motion of the clock is compared (mathematically) to a specific motion (used as reference) that of the spinning earth.
That bare reality motion acting on motion abolished from this writer's mind the concept of time, which in all circumstances ends up being associated to clocks.
Do not expect physics to answer the question: WHAT IS TIME?The reasoning leading to the conclusion that time does not exist, based on the reality of motion, is not valid in physics as in physics motion instead is not physical!
Motion is as elusive in physics' science, as time is in reality!
But we're not through! Einstein's space-time concept ultimately acts as a referee! It simply mandates that time doesn't exist!
Because Einstein's space-time infers that both time and space as individual entities are doomed, how can time continue to exist and furthermore be dependent on motion (in time dilation)?
Physicists are frankly overlooking Einstein's space-time concept; the " t " symbol for time is still appearing in their equations!
This writer thinks that "we" human extracted time out of motion, made an "intellectual" entity out of it, and now "believe" (in spite of Einstein's ideas) that entity is part of the universe!
And by the way, for those who claim that science is above religion, what is time in physics if not a "belief"?
In a nutshell should time exist, we do not know what it is; physicists do not tell us what it is; and our only recourse, physicist or not, is to believe in it!
In gravimotion's interpretation of Nature (introduced next) time is absent and doesn't exist, which solves that dilemma!
The gravimotion interpretation of Nature turns down-upside our conventional way of thinking!In that interpretation the happening departs from the concept of time in that the happening is physical while our concept of time is considered not to be physical and simply abolished.
In the gravimotion interpretation of Nature, the happening is physical under the format (and reality) of motion!

In bold are events occuring outside our human brains, that are events which for sure occur in reality.
In italics and beige are interpretations of events by our human brains, and as such might be artificial and might have no collateral in reality.
