What is TIME, and how does time pass? Unexplainable? Beyond understanding? Read my paper and you my find some surprises.



Time, after death, is the ultimate mystery in the universe. What is it? Is it an illusion, a 4th dimension, a property of the other dimensions, or something else altogether? The greatest minds of science have attempted to explain this phenomenon and have yet to give a satisfactory answer.

As a youth, I read Einstein’s special theory of relativity and was fascinated that the crux of the entire theory is that time is flexible. I didn’t understand all of the implications of that property but the fascination lingered throughout my life, and drove me to attempt to get ever closer to an understanding of what time is, hoping that in time, an understanding would come. Why does time dilation occur at near-light speeds. Why is C the ultimate speed limit. Is faster than light travel possible, and how is all this tied to time? Eventually I had to ask the question, “Is a complete understanding of time possible”.

In an earlier paper, “The Big Bang, A Multidimensional Perspective”, I explored the idea of time as being, not a single dimension, but multidimensional, and the relationship between time and space. That paper stimulated further thought and ideas that resulted in this paper. The final stimulus was the belief that I have made a breakthrough in the understanding of the exact nature of time. The following pages will outline my process of reasoning that led to the concept that has developed over the last 6 months since the earlier  paper, and the development of the final picture of our universe’s relationship to the mystery of time.

This paper will attempt to answer the following questions concerning time:


1.      What is time?

2.      What is its role in the universe?

3.      How are time and space related?

4.      What is the mechanism for Time Dilation in Einstein’s Special Relativity.

5.      How is velocity related to time?

6.      Why do clocks slow down at velocities close to C?

7.      Why is C the ultimate speed limit in the universe.

8.      Is time travel possible?

9.      Why do we experience the phenomenon of time “passing”?
