|This is cringe worthy and a meme. :D|
No, not the useless magazine.
What is time then?
Does time exist?
How long has time existed?
Spoiler Alert: Time DOESNT exist; it is an illusion. Time is like temperature. Humans have developed instruments to measure it, but temperature doesnt exist; it is an illusion. Get it? Did I just wreck Einsteins theory of relativity?
We put a lot of emphasis on time because we are mortal. We have a finite TIME to get things done. But everyone's time is different. If my time was broken up into sections it wouldnt match your time. This was an issue in history because time was based on a kings life, but time was different in every kingdom. Until the Seleucid's began counting time on a continual basis. Ancient time is hard to synchronize because of that issue. Would we emphasize time if we were immortal?

How do we measure time?
Time is largely measured by rotations around a star we call the sun. One rotation around the sun is called a year. We break up those years with celestial events like equinoxes and solstices. A year is broken down and broken down and broken down until TODAY we have seconds that are measured by electricity passing through a piece of quartz. How many seconds were there before electricity? When did a minute start to be a thing?
As we advanced in technology time gained smaller and smaller segments and time was more and more important on a smaller scale. How mad do you get when you have to wait in line at a drive-thru for 5 WHOLE MINUTES?
I cant prove this to you any further, and it cant really be disproven either. Time is just a crutch us mortals use to attempt to understand the things we will never be able to...
