Time is something we measure by noting some sequence of physical events.

Time

Out of all the aspects of our world and universe, are the properties of time the only thing we haven't explored?

Are there any experiments that directly explore time? Or is it that time is just assumed for all the other experiments that are conducted...?

Can we measure or determine anything more than just the deduced philosophical views of time?

Gravity is only weakly measured. Time even less so!

It has long been my position

It has long been my position that "Time" is a force, not just a measurement of living things or exsistance. The vastness of space and the exsistace of time is one of the true great romances to me. Some dictionaries will define time as that force that works to measure life , as it does all things. And humanity measures this. As light , particie and beam. Time , a force and essencial to be measured. Eventually events seek corrolation within the waveform of time. John

Bikerman comments on that on his thread: Relativity observed at a small scale

Beautiful timepiece of engineering for reducing the size and increasing the accuracy!

But at the end of the day, what is it that is actually being measured and indicated?...

There's a lot of poetry to be had in the analogy that time is a machine with cogs and wheels that are somehow 'driven'...

It does rouse the question of why time is as it is... Whatever Time "is"...

Is our view and experience of Time an artefact of the way we interact with Time? Is there some viewpoint we're missing beyond the manifestation of Time that we experience?

Is there something that drives Time in some way?

Do we see the force of gravity to be so phenomenally weak due to the timescale ("rate of time", or time 'density') in which we exist?

Are time and gravity linked in fundamental ways we have not explored yet?...

How do we experiment with time?!
