What is Time?
Time is a period of time considered as a resource under your

An instance or single occasion for some event. A suitable
moment. Regulate or set the time of.
An indefinite period (usually marked by specific attributes or

A person's experience on a particular occasion. A reading
of a point in time as given by a clock.
The fourth coordinate that is required (along with

Orders of Magnitude (time)
is a description of the quantity of a time
in respect to comparison between differing magnitudes. In common usage,
the scale is usually the base10 or base−10 exponent being applied to an
amount, making the order of magnitude 10 times greater or smaller. As the
differences are measured in factors of 10, a logarithmic scale is applied.
In terms of time, the relationship between the smallest limit of time, the
Planck time, and the next order of magnitude larger is 10.

is the concept of movement (such as by a human)

points in space, typically using a hypothetical device known as a time
machine, in the form of a vehicle or of a portal connecting distant points
in time. Time is not absolute.
There for there could be no time travel machine, only a time difference,
or a perceived difference in time.Absolute
is perfect or complete or pure. Complete and without restriction or
qualification; sometimes used informally as intensifiers. Expressing
finality with no implication of possible change. Not capable of being
violated or infringed. Something that is conceived or that exists
independently and not in relation to other things; something that does not
depend on anything else and is beyond human control; something that is not
relative. Not limited by law.

is a plot device in which periods of time are
repeated and re-experienced by the characters, and there is often some
hope of breaking out of the cycle of repetition. Time loop is sometimes
used to refer to a causal loop; although they appear similar, causal loops
are unchanging and self-originating, whereas time loops are constantly
resetting: when a certain condition is met, such as a death of a character
or a clock reaches a certain time, the loop starts again, with one or more
characters retaining the memories from the previous loop. Stories with
time loops commonly center on the character learning from each successive
loop through time.
decomposes a function of time (a signal)
into the frequencies that make it up, in a way similar to how a musical
chord can be expressed as the amplitude (or loudness) of its constituent
notes. The Fourier transform of a function of time itself is a

amount of that frequency present in the original function, and whose
complex argument is the phase offset of the basic sinusoid in that

is a difference of elapsed time between two events as measured
by observers either moving relative to each other or differently situated
