I always used to wonder like, well why does 60 seconds equal a minute? Does it equal a minute? That's just a human made up equation. What if an hour isn't 60 minutes at all? A day here is 24hrs, yeah? But a day on another planet may last half that or 4x longer. So what's a day? Is it still 24hrs?
If it exists on earth then it exists elsewhere, but what if it's not time at all? That's just another human made up word/equation again. What if time isn't actually time. Hopefully by the end of this thread we'd have read the word time so much that it loses all complete meaning to us and then we can all sit here and ponder whether we just wasted our time or used it very wisely. Hehe.
Anyway to me time is just a buncha numbers. Numbers are just a made up language. 1+1=2 to us because that's what we've learned and that's what makes sense, but what if in another galaxy 1+1 doesn't equal 2? What if we've been wrong all this time?
Unless the human race has in fact encountered beings from another dimension and or another world, then all we have on this earth is exactly what we've made up ourselves, so that we can understand and make sense of things.
I once read that if you could literally travel at the speed of light you'd never age. And that people who fly around the world very frequently age less due to the fast speed they're traveling at. I was always taught that time ages everything. Archeologists can report that under certain circumstances and under certain environments, that you can in fact "preserve" time. Preservation is interesting to think of when thinking about time. The definition is to keep alive or in existence, but doesn't time contradict preservation?
