    Depends on the philosopher. I would say time is an emergent relationship abstracted from change.

    vibrations, when things start going round and round, it generates time, when you meditate, time has no meaning

      "time has no meaning" … It doesn't to useless subjective philosophy & its significant philosophers. But as for getting somewhere like work or to something as important in our present environment, I think time Does-have-meaning surely.

    Time is a concept, created by Mankind (and perhaps other concept-forming beings) for the purpose of communicating about, and thinking about, change. Change occurs over time. Things that existed at an earlier time, change to become that which presently exists. That which presently exists will change to become that which will exist in the future. Time is also useful in the planning and coordinating of cooperative actions.

    something to which one is exposed while acting or there is action

    In the restlessness is the responsibility. So a philosopher preaches above all tranquility.

    Q: What is TIME to the philosopher?

    A: A blessing, and an inconvenience.

  • In the void there is no time.

    The motion of the planets give rise to our experience of time.

    The motions are calculated and cycled in man's track of them, as years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds. There appears to be smaller times and larger times.

    I hold to a theory of Cosmic time (the Ultimate tick-tock), to regular time, but also to the theory of relative time (time is relative to your velocity over distance t=v/d).

    There must be Time -- or else everything would happen at once.

      Nothing can 'happen' without Time..... the most essential element in any change is positive quantum of Time.

    Change is Time...... if there be no change at all, Time loses both its quantum and cognition.
