A subjective illusion that compares two perceived points in duality: the Now state, and a state that exists as a retrievable perception.

The retrievable perception is a lot vaguer than the magnitude of the Now state, so it gives rise to a perceivable dynamic allowing for an illusion of animation.

The real issue is: How do you get change beyond duality? That is to say, how can there be change without time? That's a true mindbender.

Time is a concept we created keeping past and future in mind but in actuality theres no such thing. When everything ceases to exist the notion of time dissapears. For example, do a strong determination meditation where you dont even move an inch and loss sense of your body. You will notice what time really is. 10 min or one hr doesn't make sense.

But this important concept is essential for our survival so u cannot really ignore it. Its just like index in a book

@Someone here It's a measurement of some movements. Just as size is relative to other sizes, movement is relative to other movements. When your heart beats slow it beats slow relative to other hearts and to the sun cycle. Time is that relativity of movement.

Everything is always changing, decaying, growing etc. But that change happens at a finite pace. We can count changes and get time as a result. For example we can observe a swinging pendulum and count off how many swings it makes, to get time elapsed.

The rate of change is observable and real, the elapsed time is inferred - it's a construct. Once an event has happened it's no longer accessible and so it is doesn't exist. All that's left is an imprint of the event in the present moment. You can count the imprints, and infer some time passed, but that's all.


Consiousness is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is.

Time is the measurement of changes in conditions. It is an invention of mind.

We measure with the clock the quantity which depends on the relative position of the earth with respect to sun and not beyond that .

Time is not movement.

There can be movement without time.

Of course that idea isn't it

Hark ye yet again — the little lower layer. All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event — in the living act, the undoubted deed — there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike through the mask! How can the prisoner reach outside except by thrusting through the wall? To me, the white whale is that wall, shoved near to me. Sometimes I think there's naught beyond. But 'tis enough

I think it depends on how you define time.

If you define time as movement than time is movement by definition. But if you define time as imagination of past-present-future than you can have movement without it.
