Time is a fantasy; there is no such thing.

It is in the same sense that the concept of indecent exposure is a social construct.

As good a reason as any.

Not for us though, or would you say that everything is the same since you were born? We have day and night cycles so time isnt really a social construct but the stuff we build around time, like meetings, appointments, etc are.

Why does Einstein's theory of relativity work then?

even large movements like the moving of planets are things that happen one moment at a time. These are things that, as others, happen only in the present.
Planets dont worry about how they're gonna move tommorow or how they moved yesterday, there's only the present.

This >>13687

The past exists only in our memories and the future exists only in our expectations. There is no 'time' but in our minds.

Not so much a social contsruct as a mental construct. We organize our thoughts according to things we believe to have happened and things we believe, hope, or fear will happen. If we didn't, we'd probably live like animals. Nonetheless, it is delusional: both our memories and our expectations are subjective--we neither remember things exactly as they were or imagine them exactly as they will be.

Einstein's work only scratched the surface of particle physics and I keep hearing we are finding out it doesn't account for everything. I'm not a physicist but I think it would help to define "speed" not as an amount of distance covered in a specifed amount of time, but rather an amount of energy on a vector (ie, a car is not going "60 miles an hour" so much as the engine is combusting fuel, rotating the axels, and rolling the wheels while the driver pilots the vehicle along a pathway that permits the car to maintain sufficent kinetic energy to overcome wind resistance, etc--there should be an equation involving the mass of the car, the average wind resistance, the amount of force generated by the engine combustion, etc to express this properly).

Go to school.
