Eise Posted November 29, 2014 Share Posted November 29, 2014 Time measurement is connected with change. If something does not change, I don't agree that no time has passed for it. Only that we can't use that to quantify how much time has passed. Seems you want it the hard way too... Suppose we have a closed system in which there is no change. Does time pass in the system? How can we know without entering the system, i.e. introducing time ourselves? And which was supposed to be a closed system? So if you say that time passes when there is no change, you say something that is impossible to know, as a matter of principle. Time does not exist independent of change. Just in the same way that space does not exist without lengths or distances. Both space and time are abstract principles without physical meaning. Distances and changes have physical meaning: they can be observed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
