    Time is not illusory. It is a real concept;

    BUT

    it passes at different speeds whether comparing it to when your in space or on earth or whether you're bored or having fun or whether you're under emotional duress or exctasy. That is why I voted illusory. It is real, but what is real?

    Time is Being, and Being is "nothing" in the literal sense that it is no thing, as in, not an entity.

    It's nothing but an illusion.

    Time doesn't really exist in reality, it's something that is created by our minds.

    Our perception of time is variable, but animation evidences time as a dimension, does it not?

    Oh time is quite real. As important to the function of reality as is any of the 3 physical dimensions. Likewise I would argue it's not possible to go backward in time in the popular sense of "visiting" the past.

    WHO DO I NEED TO HUG FOR THIS FORUM TOPIC?! *huggle @mal1234*

    Time is a human concept of measurement. By thinking it, it comes to existence.
    BUT its isnt attainable , graspable , or a solid form in order for us to prove it to be true. Like God, time is a conecept formed in order to understand what we cant understand. Asking does time exists is like asking do souls exist. The IDEA of it exists, there is evidence that it exists, but we cant attain it.
    In human perception itdoes. But the universe doesnt follow our rules. The univrse heeds at no time. It is just IS. so no time doesnt exist. Its only there to make humans not panic and kill themselves off for being constantly too late or too early at a doctors appointment.

    Time, the dimension, isn't incremental, but our measurement of it is. Like how size is an abstraction some people behold as greater or lesser, but is still standardized by units (which are truly meaningless, but help order reality).

    Is time constant? I know it's not strictly linear.

    I was talking about time as the variable, not the demention.
