Essay Abstract

Everybody has a view of time, quantitative and/ or qualitative, solid and or surreal. Fiction writers have made good use of the concepts e.g.other universes, and time travel. But blaming time for one's deterioration is to ignore the ever present dangers of the environment.

Author Bio

Scientists from the Bistro Research Center (http://researchpaperwritings.net/), Slovenia, suggested the theory that the Newtonian idea of time as an absolute measure moving in itself, as well as being the fourth existing measurement, is incorrect.

This point of view does not mean that time does not exist, but rather that time is more connected with space than with the idea of absolute time. In other words, if the concept of four-dimensional space-time involves the existence of three spatial measurements and one temporary, then the new paradigm says that it is more correct to imagine space-time as the four dimensions of the real space. Which means that the universe is essentially "temporal".
