time isn’t real.
we invented it. we invented it to track where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going. we use it to catalog events and history. we created the concept of time based on a given planetary cycle. we invented sun dials. we invented clocks. how long is a second? you can’t answer that, because it’s a series of moments with an undefined length. we’ve put systems in place to try to consistently and accurately measure the different lengths of time we’ve created, because we invented time.
time doesn’t exist.
and yet, time is the only thing that forever exists.
