So far there is no definitive answer as to why time flows forward. While many scientists speculate what may the cause of this asymmetry in time none of the options has been accepted as the one answer. Often these ideas lack a complete understanding of the underlying more complex principles that we cannot yet understand but here is one of the most common ...

In the Schrodinger equation time is treated like a parameter. But there is no reason to think it has to be treated this way and there are attempts to put clock times on a more physical footing in quantum mechanics, especially in quantum gravity, e.g. http://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/9303020. There are various problems associated with understanding relativity and ...

Time is just a scale we use to measure the rate of processes or to measure the interval between 2 events. Time is not a stand-alone entity and it does not exist alone independently. All the means (like clocks) we employ to measure Time use some standard physical changes as their fundamental measuring units of Time. So Time has no direction of its own, ...

This is a question that cannot be answered without understanding what time is. And I think the best we can say is that time is a quantity we use to compare events. But the compared feature is the ordering. Bearing that in mind, we cannot say much about its reality, even less about its direction. In other words, despite the fact that you can order events, ...

Time is relative, meaning that time never runs exactly the same in 1 place than another even on the same world. Time runs fast next to the sun while time on Pluto would run slower than here. Next to a black hole time would from almost seam to stop. There is no universal clock to set time by only what we created on Earth for ourselves. Time only moves ...
