His name in Greek means "time" and is alternatively spelled Chronus Latin spelling or Khronos. Chronos is usually portrayed as an old, wise man with a long, gray beard, such as "Father Time".
According to Kabbalists , "time" is a paradox  and an illusion. Two contrasting viewpoints on time divide prominent philosophers. Isaac Newton subscribed to this realist view, and hence it is sometimes referred to as Newtonian time. This second view, in the tradition of Gottfried Leibniz  and Immanuel Kant ,   holds that time is neither an event nor a thing, and thus is not itself measurable nor can it be travelled. Furthermore, it may be that there is a subjective component to time, but whether or not time itself is "felt", as a sensation, or is a judgment, is a matter of debate.
In Philosophy, time was questioned throughout the centuries; what time is and if it is real or not. Ancient Greek philosophers asked if time was linear or cyclical and if time was endless or finite. It is believed that there was repeating ages over the lifespan of the universe. The Vedas , the earliest texts on Indian philosophy and Hindu philosophy dating back to the late 2nd millennium BC , describe ancient Hindu cosmology , in which the universe goes through repeated cycles of creation, destruction and rebirth, with each cycle lasting 4, million years.
Aristotle , in Book IV of his Physica defined time as 'number of movement in respect of the before and after'. In Book 11 of his Confessions , St. Augustine of Hippo ruminates on the nature of time, asking, "What then is time? If no one asks me, I know: if I wish to explain it to one that asketh, I know not. However, Augustine ends up calling time a "distention" of the mind Confessions Isaac Newton believed in absolute space and absolute time; Leibniz believed that time and space are relational.
Philosophers in the 17th and 18th century questioned if time was real and absolute , or if it was an intellectual concept that humans use to understand and sequence events. Immanuel Kant , Critique of Pure Reason , trans. Vasilis Politis London: Dent. Immanuel Kant , in the Critique of Pure Reason , described time as an a priori intuition that allows us together with the other a priori intuition, space to comprehend sense experience.
Kant thought of time as a fundamental part of an abstract conceptual framework, together with space and number, within which we sequence events, quantify their duration, and compare the motions of objects. In this view, time does not refer to any kind of entity that "flows," that objects "move through," or that is a "container" for events. Spatial measurements are used to quantify the extent of and distances between objects , and temporal measurements are used to quantify the durations of and between events.
Time was designated by Kant as the purest possible schema of a pure concept or category. Henri Bergson believed that time was neither a real homogeneous medium nor a mental construct, but possesses what he referred to as Duration. Duration, in Bergson's view, was creativity and memory as an essential component of reality. According to Martin Heidegger we do not exist inside time, we are time. Hence, the relationship to the past is a present awareness of having been , which allows the past to exist in the present. The relationship to the future is the state of anticipating a potential possibility, task, or engagement.
It is related to the human propensity for caring and being concerned, which causes "being ahead of oneself" when thinking of a pending occurrence. Therefore, this concern for a potential occurrence also allows the future to exist in the present. The present becomes an experience, which is qualitative instead of quantitative. Heidegger seems to think this is the way that a linear relationship with time, or temporal existence, is broken or transcended.
Modern philosophers asked: is time real or unreal, is time happening all at once or a duration, If time tensed or tenseless, and is there a future to be? On the other hand , there is a theory called the tense or A-theory ; this theory says that our language has tense verbs for a reason and that the future can not be determined. McTaggart 's The Unreality of Time argues that, since every event has the characteristic of being both present and not present i.
These arguments often center on what it means for something to be unreal. A modern philosophical theory called presentism views the past and the future as human-mind interpretations of movement instead of real parts of time or "dimensions" which coexist with the present. This theory rejects the existence of all direct interaction with the past or the future, holding only the present as tangible.
This is one of the philosophical arguments against time travel. This contrasts with eternalism all time: present, past and future, is real and the growing block theory the present and the past are real, but the future is not. Until Einstein's reinterpretation of the physical concepts associated with time and space, time was considered to be the same everywhere in the universe, with all observers measuring the same time interval for any event.
Einstein, in his special theory of relativity ,  postulated the constancy and finiteness of the speed of light for all observers. He showed that this postulate, together with a reasonable definition for what it means for two events to be simultaneous, requires that distances appear compressed and time intervals appear lengthened for events associated with objects in motion relative to an inertial observer. The theory of special relativity finds a convenient formulation in Minkowski spacetime , a mathematical structure that combines three dimensions of space with a single dimension of time.
In this formalism, distances in space can be measured by how long light takes to travel that distance, e. Two events in Minkowski spacetime are separated by an invariant interval , which can be either space-like , light-like , or time-like. Events that have a time-like separation cannot be simultaneous in any frame of reference , there must be a temporal component and possibly a spatial one to their separation. Events that have a space-like separation will be simultaneous in some frame of reference, and there is no frame of reference in which they do not have a spatial separation.
Different observers may calculate different distances and different time intervals between two events, but the invariant interval between the events is independent of the observer and his or her velocity. In non-relativistic classical mechanics , Newton's concept of "relative, apparent, and common time" can be used in the formulation of a prescription for the synchronization of clocks. Events seen by two different observers in motion relative to each other produce a mathematical concept of time that works sufficiently well for describing the everyday phenomena of most people's experience.
In the late nineteenth century, physicists encountered problems with the classical understanding of time, in connection with the behavior of electricity and magnetism. Einstein resolved these problems by invoking a method of synchronizing clocks using the constant, finite speed of light as the maximum signal velocity. This led directly to the result that observers in motion relative to one another measure different elapsed times for the same event. Time has historically been closely related with space, the two together merging into spacetime in Einstein's special relativity and general relativity.
According to these theories, the concept of time depends on the spatial reference frame of the observer , and the human perception as well as the measurement by instruments such as clocks are different for observers in relative motion. For example, if a spaceship carrying a clock flies through space at very nearly the speed of light, its crew does not notice a change in the speed of time on board their vessel because everything traveling at the same speed slows down at the same rate including the clock, the crew's thought processes, and the functions of their bodies.
However, to a stationary observer watching the spaceship fly by, the spaceship appears flattened in the direction it is traveling and the clock on board the spaceship appears to move very slowly. On the other hand, the crew on board the spaceship also perceives the observer as slowed down and flattened along the spaceship's direction of travel, because both are moving at very nearly the speed of light relative to each other. Because the outside universe appears flattened to the spaceship, the crew perceives themselves as quickly traveling between regions of space that to the stationary observer are many light years apart.
This is reconciled by the fact that the crew's perception of time is different from the stationary observer's; what seems like seconds to the crew might be hundreds of years to the stationary observer. In either case, however, causality remains unchanged: the past is the set of events that can send light signals to an entity and the future is the set of events to which an entity can send light signals. Einstein showed in his thought experiments that people travelling at different speeds, while agreeing on cause and effect , measure different time separations between events, and can even observe different chronological orderings between non-causally related events.
Though these effects are typically minute in the human experience, the effect becomes much more pronounced for objects moving at speeds approaching the speed of light. Subatomic particles exist for a well known average fraction of a second in a lab relatively at rest, but when travelling close to the speed of light they are measured to travel farther and exist for much longer than when at rest. According to the special theory of relativity , in the high-speed particle's frame of reference , it exists, on the average, for a standard amount of time known as its mean lifetime , and the distance it travels in that time is zero, because its velocity is zero.
Relative to a frame of reference at rest, time seems to "slow down" for the particle. Relative to the high-speed particle, distances seem to shorten. Einstein showed how both temporal and spatial dimensions can be altered or "warped" by high-speed motion. Einstein The Meaning of Relativity : "Two events taking place at the points A and B of a system K are simultaneous if they appear at the same instant when observed from the middle point, M, of the interval AB.

Time is then defined as the ensemble of the indications of similar clocks, at rest relative to K, which register the same simultaneously. Einstein wrote in his book, Relativity , that simultaneity is also relative , i. The animations visualise the different treatments of time in the Newtonian and the relativistic descriptions.
At the heart of these differences are the Galilean and Lorentz transformations applicable in the Newtonian and relativistic theories, respectively. In the figures, the vertical direction indicates time. The horizontal direction indicates distance only one spatial dimension is taken into account , and the thick dashed curve is the spacetime trajectory " world line " of the observer. The small dots indicate specific past and future events in spacetime.
The slope of the world line deviation from being vertical gives the relative velocity to the observer. Note how in both pictures the view of spacetime changes when the observer accelerates. In the Newtonian description these changes are such that time is absolute:  the movements of the observer do not influence whether an event occurs in the 'now' i.
However, in the relativistic description the observability of events is absolute: the movements of the observer do not influence whether an event passes the " light cone " of the observer. Notice that with the change from a Newtonian to a relativistic description, the concept of absolute time is no longer applicable: events move up-and-down in the figure depending on the acceleration of the observer.
Yet for the most part the laws of physics do not specify an arrow of time , and allow any process to proceed both forward and in reverse. This is generally a consequence of time being modelled by a parameter in the system being analysed, where there is no "proper time": the direction of the arrow of time is sometimes arbitrary.
Examples of this include the cosmological arrow of time, which points away from the Big Bang , CPT symmetry , and the radiative arrow of time, caused by light only travelling forwards in time see light cone. In particle physics , the violation of CP symmetry implies that there should be a small counterbalancing time asymmetry to preserve CPT symmetry as stated above.
The standard description of measurement in quantum mechanics is also time asymmetric see Measurement in quantum mechanics. The second law of thermodynamics states that entropy must increase over time see Entropy. This can be in either direction — Brian Greene theorizes that, according to the equations, the change in entropy occurs symmetrically whether going forward or backward in time. So entropy tends to increase in either direction, and our current low-entropy universe is a statistical aberration, in the similar manner as tossing a coin often enough that eventually heads will result ten times in a row.
However, this theory is not supported empirically in local experiment. Time quantization is a hypothetical concept. In the modern established physical theories the Standard Model of Particles and Interactions and General Relativity time is not quantized. Current established physical theories are believed to fail at this time scale, and many physicists expect that the Planck time might be the smallest unit of time that could ever be measured, even in principle.
Tentative physical theories that describe this time scale exist; see for instance loop quantum gravity. Time travel is the concept of moving backwards or forwards to different points in time, in a manner analogous to moving through space, and different from the normal "flow" of time to an earthbound observer. In this view, all points in time including future times "persist" in some way. Time travel has been a plot device in fiction since the 19th century. Travelling backwards in time has never been verified, presents many theoretical problems, and may be an impossibility. A central problem with time travel to the past is the violation of causality ; should an effect precede its cause, it would give rise to the possibility of a temporal paradox.
Some interpretations of time travel resolve this by accepting the possibility of travel between branch points , parallel realities , or universes. Another solution to the problem of causality-based temporal paradoxes is that such paradoxes cannot arise simply because they have not arisen. As illustrated in numerous works of fiction, free will either ceases to exist in the past or the outcomes of such decisions are predetermined. As such, it would not be possible to enact the grandfather paradox because it is a historical fact that your grandfather was not killed before his child your parent was conceived.
This view doesn't simply hold that history is an unchangeable constant, but that any change made by a hypothetical future time traveller would already have happened in his or her past, resulting in the reality that the traveller moves from. More elaboration on this view can be found in the Novikov self-consistency principle. The specious present refers to the time duration wherein one's perceptions are considered to be in the present. The experienced present is said to be 'specious' in that, unlike the objective present, it is an interval and not a durationless instant.
The term specious present was first introduced by the psychologist E. Clay , and later developed by William James. The brain's judgment of time is known to be a highly distributed system, including at least the cerebral cortex , cerebellum and basal ganglia as its components. One particular component, the suprachiasmatic nuclei , is responsible for the circadian or daily rhythm , while other cell clusters appear capable of shorter-range ultradian timekeeping.
Psychoactive drugs can impair the judgment of time. Stimulants can lead both humans and rats to overestimate time intervals,   while depressants can have the opposite effect. Mental chronometry is the use of response time in perceptual-motor tasks to infer the content, duration, and temporal sequencing of cognitive operations.
Children's expanding cognitive abilities allow them to understand time more clearly. Two- and three-year-olds' understanding of time is mainly limited to "now and not now. Seven- to ten-year-olds can use clocks and calendars. In addition to psychoactive drugs, judgments of time can be altered by temporal illusions like the kappa effect ,  age,  and hypnosis. Psychologists assert that time seems to go faster with age, but the literature on this age-related perception of time remains controversial. In sociology and anthropology , time discipline is the general name given to social and economic rules, conventions, customs, and expectations governing the measurement of time, the social currency and awareness of time measurements, and people's expectations concerning the observance of these customs by others.
Arlie Russell Hochschild   and Norbert Elias  have written on the use of time from a sociological perspective.
The dauer diapause
The use of time is an important issue in understanding human behavior , education, and travel behavior. Time-use research is a developing field of study. The question concerns how time is allocated across a number of activities such as time spent at home, at work, shopping, etc. Time use changes with technology, as the television or the Internet created new opportunities to use time in different ways.
However, some aspects of time use are relatively stable over long periods of time, such as the amount of time spent traveling to work, which despite major changes in transport, has been observed to be about 20—30 minutes one-way for a large number of cities over a long period. Time management is the organization of tasks or events by first estimating how much time a task requires and when it must be completed, and adjusting events that would interfere with its completion so it is done in the appropriate amount of time.
Calendars and day planners are common examples of time management tools. A sequence of events, or series of events, is a sequence of items, facts, events, actions, changes, or procedural steps, arranged in time order chronological order , often with causality relationships among the items. A sequence of events can be presented in text, tables , charts , or timelines. The description of the items or events may include a timestamp.
A sequence of events that includes the time along with place or location information to describe a sequential path may be referred to as a world line. Uses of a sequence of events include stories,  historical events chronology , directions and steps in procedures ,  and timetables for scheduling activities. A sequence of events may also be used to help describe processes in science, technology, and medicine.
A sequence of events may be focused on past events e.
What Arket reveals about H&M's new direction
The use of a sequence of events occurs in fields as diverse as machines cam timer , documentaries Seconds From Disaster , law choice of law , computer simulation discrete event simulation , and electric power transmission  sequence of events recorder. A specific example of a sequence of events is the timeline of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. Although time is regarded as an abstract concept, there is increasing evidence that time is conceptualized in the mind in terms of space. Using space to think about time allows humans to mentally organize temporal events in a specific way.
Conversely, Arabic, Farsi, Urdu and Israeli-Hebrew speakers read from right to left, and their MTLs unfold leftward past on the right with future on the left , and evidence suggests these speakers organize time events in their minds like this as well. This linguistic evidence that abstract concepts are based in spatial concepts also reveals that the way humans mentally organize time events varies across cultures——that is, a certain specific mental organization system is not universal.
So, although Western cultures typically associate past events with the left and future events with the right according to a certain MTL, this kind of horizontal, egocentric MTL is not the spatial organization of all cultures. Although most developed nations use an egocentric spatial system, there is recent evidence that some cultures use an allocentric spatialization, often based on environmental features.
A recent study of the indigenous Yupno people of Papua New Guinea focused on the directional gestures used when individuals used time-related words. When speaking of the future, they gestured uphill, toward the source of the river. This was common regardless of which direction the person faced, revealing that the Yupno people may use an allocentric MTL, in which time flows uphill.
A similar study of the Pormpuraawans, an aboriginal group in Australia, revealed a similar distinction in which when asked to organize photos of a man aging "in order," individuals consistently placed the youngest photos to the east and the oldest photos to the west, regardless of which direction they faced. Therefore, this group also appears to have an allocentric MTL, but based on the cardinal directions instead of geographical features.
The wide array of distinctions in the way different groups think about time leads to the broader question that different groups may also think about other abstract concepts in different ways as well, such as causality and number.

In classical mechanics, time is absolute in the sense that the time of an event is independent of the observer. According to the theory of relativity it depends on the observer's frame of reference.
Time is considered as a fourth coordinate required, along with three spatial coordinates, to specify an event. A continuous, measurable quantity in which events occur in a sequence proceeding from the past through the present to the future.
An interval separating two points of this quantity; a duration. A system or reference frame in which such intervals are measured or such quantities are calculated. A quantity used to specify the order in which events occurred and measure the amount by which one event preceded or followed another.

First, there is no absolute location in either space or time; location is always the situation of an object or event relative to other objects and events. Second, space and time are not in themselves real that is, not substances. Space and time are, rather, ideal. Space and time are just metaphysically illegitimate ways of perceiving certain virtual relations between substances.
They are phenomena or, strictly speaking, illusions although they are illusions that are well-founded upon the internal properties of substances It is sometimes convenient to think of space and time as something "out there," over and above the entities and their relations to each other, but this convenience must not be confused with reality. Space is nothing but the order of co-existent objects; time nothing but the order of successive events. This is usually called a relational theory of space and time.

As man dwelt increasingly in the profane and a sense of history developed, the desire to escape into the sacred began to drop in the background. The myths, tied up with cyclic time, were not so easily operative. He could not return to cyclic time and re-enter sacred space though its myths.
In the Judaeo-Christian religions — Judaism, Christianity, Islam — history is taken seriously, and linear time is accepted. The cyclic time of the primordial mythical consciousness has been transformed into the time of profane man, but the mythical consciousness remains. It has been historicized. The Christian mythos and its accompanying ritual are bound up, for example, with history and center in authentic history, especially the Christ-event.
Sacred space, the Transcendent Presence, is thus opened up to secular man because it meets him where he is, in the linear flow of secular time. The Christian myth gives such time a beginning in creation, a center in the Christ-event, and an end in the final consummation. The Promise of Hermeneutics. Eerdmans Publishing.
