We all know that one hour is equal to 60 minutes ,its no longer or no shorter.but there is a big illusion of time depending on your mind set.
for example =if you back a goal to be scored in a football match and there is still one hour to go in the game.yet if you take the same game and the same amount of time to go but you have backed 0-0 your mind has a different view of an hour.
if you are waiting on a bus in the pouring rain for one "thats what i call a long hour"
NOW  if you have one hour left in bed on a monday morning before you have to go to work ,that hour goes very quickly.
So give some examples of long hours and short hours.

and people have a habit of saying"that last hour flew" or "that hour dragged"
so i am thinking to myself and i ask "what or which hour of the day is the longest,and which hour is the shortest"?and the answer is "it depends on what you are doing"
or  for gamblers it can depend on the bet you have made.Laugh
You all know that the great man himself Albert Einstein likes a bet"i wonder did he discover how time can be distorted because he was a punter"?Laugh

And then you have the guy who has only a few cigarettes left in his packet and is waiting on his giro the following day.he looks at the clock and counts his cigarettes and then says to himself"its going to be long night"
so if you have an addiction time can be a factor.and you may have many long hours in your life.
yet if you are a workaholic there is never enough time.Grin
And as for the gamblers they think there is a last race if they are losing.Yet the profession gambler will always say there is no such thing as a last race "his statement is that there is always tomorrow"
so time is really really a big big illusion ,and its down to how each person treats time.or to put it more plainly ,how each of us view time.
So i guess the next answer is that each one of us should be the master of our own time rather then letting time master us.(if you know what i mean)

So i am just after looking at the clock and its now 8 minutes to subconscious says to me"right brass ,its time for bed"the clock tells me its time for bed,and in 5 minutes time not only will the clock tell me its midnight it will command time by giving out 12 bongs,each saying "do you know what time it is"?
if i go to the pub now ,the barman will say"time up"
And if i ask someone to take me to a pub in the city centre he will say he has no time to do it (unless i have 20 quid to give him)then he will find time.
So the next lesson is that you can buy someone's time.

now we come to the biggest problem of them all.And that is the question of when did time start.
Now science says everything started with the big bang theory.but they say time started at that time.and there was nothing before it.but this is all BS because in order for a big bang to occur you would have to have a time for it to happen.
And the law of thermodynamics(science own laws) state that it is impossible for something to be created from nothing.So science makes an ass of it self with its laws ,so  all science which is built on its thermodynamicial laws can be chucked in the trash can.And time itself proves that there could not have being a big bang unless it was about to see it.
So all we can work out from this is that God and time are connected and were born at the same time,unless there was a god time before the first second of time.and god made the time.
so perhaps the bible is correct and god made time but let you be your own judge on that one if you can make time to think about it.Grin

According to Einstein, space-time is the fabric of the universe and began at the beginning of the universe. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, the energy of this universe has always existed.
The same arguments apply to any universe should others exist. Our universe exists so logically we should suppose that others exist too.

For the present there is just one moon,

though every level pond gives back another.

But the bright disc shining in the black lagoon,

perceived by astrophysicist and lover,is milliseconds old. And even that light’s

seven minutes older than its source.

And the stars we think we see on moonless nights

are long extinguished. And, of course,

this very moment, as you read this line,

is literally gone before you know it.

Forget the here-and-now. We have no time

but this device of wantonness and wit.

Make me this present then: your hand in mine,

and we’ll live out our lives in it.

yes i am inclined to agree with Albert,but the begining of the universe time had to have millisecond start on the rest of the field,and it would have had to spring out of the traps faster than the speed of light form the big bang,which proves Albert wrong in his theory that nothing travels faster than the spped of light,but if the big bang occured ,time would have travelled faster in order for the light to travel.
Report brassneck January 11, 2018 9:02 PM GMT
but then again albert says it possible to go back in time ,so the speed of light may have led the field in the race to edge on the universe after the big bang but time would have caught up on light during the race and its still running.Coolso if you were able to look at our uinverse from outside all you would see is a big bright ball .Happy
Report Foinavon January 11, 2018 9:06 PM GMT
You are falling into a trap of your own making, Brassy, a millisecond is a quantity of time and time began coincidentally with the universe. Light didn't emerge until many thousands of years after the "Big Bang" (a term I don't like because it conjures up images of a large explosion about which we have conventional images of a fireball emitting light heat and sound into the surroundings). It was nothing like that, physicists use the term "Inflation" which conjures up other unfortunate analogies too but dispels the inaccuracies I've just mentioned.

A lovely poem, UB and sounds far more recent than my earlier quotation from Blake.

TIME IS the begining time was in the tiny pea that big banged ,when the big bang occured everything expanded out to create space,but time had to travel also,
but if the speed of light travelled out in front to the far reaches of the universe it have to have time to expand ,so time had to be faster or the speed of light could not expand .
so the speed of time is faster than the speed of light.
if albert is correct and the speed of light is faster(you can go back in time)
but everyone says nothing travels faster than the speed of light,and thats where they are wrong.The FOINAVON/BRASSNECK theory says the speed of time is faster than the speed of light.(11th january 2018)

IN OTHER WORDS if light is travelling from A TO B ,when the light arrives at B the time it took will be at B a nano second before the light arrives
because the  speed of time it took is a nano second faster than the speed of light.
reason.=no matter how fast the speed was for the light to get to B it had to have the time to do it.
speed of time=speed of light +1(unit of the smallest space time ever recorded)nano second.(Foinavon/brassneck theory)

the edge of the universe has to have light from the big bang because it is still expanding and the speed of light would have trapped well after the big bang and once out on front there was nothing going to catch it,but the new foinavon/brassneck theory proves that time(also a member of the big bang)would have trapped well also.
the speed of light on its big bang journey would have to go back in time if time was not out in front of it,proving that space time travels faster than the speed of light.
remember there was nothing before the big bang so when the space expanded the time had to be on front of it otherwise the speed of lightin space
would have nothing to expand into and would go back in time.So there you are guys ,SPACE TIME TRAVELS FASTER THAT THE SPEED OF LIGHT.
And it follows that if we human beings could harness the speed of time it would be possible to go back in time.So Albert was correct about that one,but foinavon /brass have now updated the big bang theory saying that space time travels faster than the speed of light.Cool
