    according to me time is not continuous yes it is not continuous it pass in intervals may be small intervals.examples that if we take a breath it may be happen that if we take second breath time is stopped. according to our time it might had stopped for several centuries. because we are a unit of time so when it stops we cant feel it unlike we think it flows continuously. you can check it itself by an experimentif we trim a video clip in between and then joins it we can recgonise it but if we trims a video in which only black colour is seen we cant recgnoise that where it has been trimmed. so it may be possible that time is not continuous.

    After I have read your thread, I am skeptical about your notion of time.
    If you could answer these questions, it will hopefully clarify your statement:
    1. In physics, the arrow of time is indicated by an increase in total entropy of a system S = ΔSsyst + ΔSenv > 0).
      Ergo, if time passes in intervals, does that mean that total entropy of a system also increases in intervals?
    2. Is anti-time also characterized by a non-continuous 'movement'?


    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    This is based on what, exactly?

    according to our time it might had stopped for several centuries.
    No.

    because we are a unit of time
    No we're not.

    you can check it itself by an experimentif we trim a video clip in between and then joins it we can recgonise it but if we trims a video in which only black colour is seen we cant recgnoise that where it has been trimmed. so it may be possible that time is not continuous.
    I have some bad news for you: a video is not reality.
    Human recognition of a sequence (or the ability to interpolate an interrupted sequence) is not time.
