Re: Time is Not Real. It Is a Human Perception.

Time is a dimension with the other 3 - Length, Height, & Width. You could say the same-things for these dimensions as St. Augustine did for Time.

There are three Lengths; a spot about things near, a spot about things are, a spot about things far. The far exists only as further, the near exists only as closer but the further and closer exist in the same spot.

By quantifying our perception for mass communication we have devised our own measurement system to describe reality in an infinite way.

Change exists because it is another dimension with the other 4 - Length, Height, Width & Time. You could say the same-things for Change as St Augustine did for Time.

There are three Changes; a force about things for protection, a force about things for stasis, a force about things for growth. The protection exists only to resist, the growth only to persist but the resistance and persistence exist in the same force.

So I am sure Time is real because it is a feature that we perceive to give things realistic attributes. Agree or Disagree?
