By Einstein's definition, time is what clocks measure – but how can we define “clock” without referring to time? This tag is for such philosophical questions about the many unresolved issues concerning time. Though this includes questions about the interpretation of physical theories and concepts, if your question is about what current physics can quantitatively predict or explain, it is probably not about philosophy and therefore off-topic.

In reading about the theories of time, they do not seem to link time to the physicality of events. All events are locked into change of physical objects, in relation to location. One can describe … the death of a president like Kennedy, but it is locked into its location no matter the linguistic labels one puts on it. The event recedes in time as we move forward. In relativity, time duration …

Time is a composite of position within 3 dimensions. If an object exists, occupies space, then its position is described using time. It is impossible to describe any object without reference to time … . Time separates the position of an object from another position held at another time. We measure time by using objects that are moving at a regular rate, so their observed position relates to the …

moment into two and then into two again infinitely so there cannot be the passing of any moment, because each moment is infinitely long. This is clearly an absurd argument, because time does progress … . But maybe there is a real solution. Quantum physics says things can exist in two states at the same time. Or put this another way, you can sub divide matter down into its constituents parts until …
