# Can't we stop the time? [duplicate]

Time is called as a measurement of difference between two or more incidents. So if we stop happening incidents can't we stop the TIME? Eventhough it's impractical, I mean if we reduce the temperature of earth to absolute zero.... isn't it stop the motion of matter and stop the time? When we start increasing temperature again isn't the time starts from where we stopped?

Even if you stop the time, quantum mechanically, the energies of systems are not zero. The simplest example would be quantum harmonic oscillator which has a ground state at $E_0=\hbar\omega/2$.
