    You can perceive distances differently at different times, as well.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Time is only a figment of our imaginations- we've created a system to time out time- seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, etc. That's all time is- nothing else. Time doesn't exist in nature, in my opinion. It's something else..simply being, and changing, and humans decided to put numbers around change.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    This is what time is. The actual numbers are arbitrary and another consciousness may not interpret those numbers in the same way we do, but the actual concept of a fixed rate [across an identical reference frame at least] of change is something that is built into the physical universe.

    Time is a label we assign to the constant movement of everything. Things decay, they change, they move.. Time doesn't exist, but it is the abstract component responsible for the existence and nonexistence of things.

    Yes, just like words are the label that we give to meaningless morphemes that link together to make sounds. We ascribe meaning to these sounds, and decide to call it "communication." So words don't really exist, they are a figment of our imagination. Regardless, it does not mean we should treat it as frivolous.

    That constant movement is energy, why call it time?

    It is still a question whether time is a construct of the energy and mind, or fact it actually exist as an quantity.
