    I wonder what is the concept of the flow of the time? I have a theory about how to defy the flow of the time but I haven't found the core of the time it self. If the core is the earth rotation, the possible theory to defying the flow o the time is to made the reverse rotation as fast as the earth rotation in which could stop the flow of the time.

    Time is quite independent of the earth's rotation.

    Well let's make it simple. Like a priciple of water flow, water flow from the higer place to the lower place. Let's call it the nature or the core concept of the water flow. If you want to stop the flowed water, you could make the path of the water equal. Neither high or low. If we know the prinxiple of the time flow, we could stop the time. Well it is not as easy as in my mind though.

    I suppose if you could completely stop all motion of everything in the universe and freeze entropy, you could consider time to be stopped.

    We do not, as of yet, have a theory of time, so we do not really know how to explain what it is.

    When you can totally stop change being possible, then time is effectively stopped. But since you have to be able to change inorder to live you have just made yourself dead. You can of course stop time for yourself. You just have to die.

    Jυѕт ℓιкє that sealeaf, you jυѕт have to die. You can only stop time Ƒor yourself i.e decide not to be conscious anymore. If you dead you can consider that the world ended that same day.

    If time really stopped, why the outside world still affect them? Why their bodies to rot?

    Time does not stop when you die... He was being facetious--- The perception of the passing of time stopped because the dead cannot count without an active brain.

    I was being a little serious, in that time is intimately linked to change. Change is an essential function/condition of life. So I don't see escaping time being consistent with being alive.
    Other thoughts about time: Time is a dimension. The condition we call "now" moves along this dimension like the surface of water moving up a measuring stick during a flood. The stick is time but the character of time is different before and after "now". The stick is dry above water and wet below. Time has the characteristic of "possiblity" before "now" and "actuality" after "now". Now is the point where possiblity becomes actuality. It is the point of choice. When a person passes completely into actuality, "becomes fully actualized", they no longer have any possiblity left. The person still exists. Relativity theory shows us that. Indeed in one sense he is more real than ever. He is a finished work, fully actualized.

    That's back to front.
    The past is an actuality - it's what happened. The future is possibility.
    Unless you meant "before now occurs" and "after now occurs".

    Relativity theory shows us that.
    What?

    What?

    Time is a dimension. Think yard stick. If you are looking at the 15 inch point, does the 8 inch mark still exist? What about the 24 inch mark? So the existence of the other points on the measuring stick is not affected by where we are looking? Thus also with time. Time the dimension is static. It all exists but the point we call " now" moves along the dimension and is the interface between space/time that is possible and space/time that is actual.
