Time And How It Exists. (Updated)

My mind likes to think about all sorts of things. It mainly likes to think of things that aren't facts so that my mind can wander town pathways of the unknown.

Lately I have been trying to work on a few theories that pop into my head quite a lot. One of these theories is the theory of time and how does such a thing exist.

Here is what confuses me...


Wiki describes time as this: Time is a dimension in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future,and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them.

So in short.
Time = A measurement of change/events.
X changes to Y over time.
This is an event that took place and Time is merely how we recorded it.

Because X changed to Y, it must have some form of movement.
If there was no movement at all it would not be able to change from X to Y.
(Movement is a form of energy)

So based on this, Time exists because of movement...
Without movement, nothing would change...
Therefor we would not need to record it/measure it.

If everything froze (by this I mean every particle, atom, quark etc) and nothing was able to move.
Yet somehow our conscious continued to work. (Not possible but stay with me)
We would record the time passed, because our conscious thoughts could keep a count in seconds.


If everything  froze (by this I mean every particle, atom, quark etc) then it's highly possible that we would not be able to have a conscious thought as nothing would be able to be processed in our brain.
In that case there would be no changes from X to Y anywhere and no way or recording it.
So time would no longer exist..



One solution I came to not long after posting this in the first place is this:

To man, Time has always, and will always exist.

In physics, the law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system cannot change it is said to be conserved over time.
Energy can be neither created nor destroyed, but can change form, for instance chemical energy can be converted to kinetic energy in the explosion of a stick of dynamite.

In physics, the law of conservation of mass, or principle of mass conservation, states that for any isolated system the mass of the system must remain constant over time.
Mass can neither be created nor destroyed, although it may be rearranged in space, or the entities associated with it may be changed in form, for instance when light or physical work is transformed into particles that contribute the same mass to the system as the light or work had contributed.

This means that Mass can change into Energy, and Energy to Mass.
The total of Mass + Energy will never change. 
Other than relative to one another..

Obviously the numbers used below are just for examples and are not really the speed of light values and such.
Energy = Mass times (Speed of light Squared)
E36 = M1      *     (Sp6*Sp6)                

Mass = Energy divided by (Speed of light Squared)
M1 = E36          /           (Sp6*Sp6)                 

1Mass + 1Energy = 2
1 + (36 / (6*6)) = 2
36 + (1 * (6*6)) = 2 

So by using this it could theoretically be possible for all Energy to change into Matter or for all Matter to change into Energy as long as the value stays constant, using conservation of energy and conservation of mass linked in with E=MC^2.

So as things are now, we have matter and we have energy that moves matter.
If we got a match and lit it, then we are changing some matter into energy (heat, light).
Respectively energy can also change to matter..

So if all the energy in our isolated system transformed into mass, then we would have no movement in our isolated system due to no energy, and if you remember, if there was no movement at all it would not be able to change from X to Y. Without movement, there would be no recordable events, and thus we would have no way to record things. Thus Time would no longer exist

So time exists as long as there is energy.
With this being the case I can now say...

When a isolated system has nothing but mass then time = 0
As soon as one single part of that mass changes into energy, time then starts
If all energy stopped moving and became mass again then time would stop.

As we record events over time, what we are effectively saying is that if we "travel through time" then we are progressing forwards through a event of change.
So, to "travel back in time" you would be progressing backwards through a event of change.
To travel backwards through a even would mean that every particle, atom, quark and smaller would also go back on its movement exactly the same as how it got there in the first place.

This also wouldn't cause a paradox.
Because EVERYTHING went back on itself, this would include all your memories created by the movement of electrons etc in your mind. As well as all your movements, thoughts,feelings,EVERYTHING.
Meaning the movement of every particle, atom, quark etc could then start going forward again leaving you with no realisation that it had ever happened because everything about you would be reverted to that point too.

Its like an old reel of film each frame is a point in time, as you play the film you travel through time and watch the events unfold.
However if you press rewind then you watch the events play backwards exactly the same as how the frames were when you played it.

Or it's like playing Prince of Persia.
When you go back in time on the game all the events would still unfold exactly the same. The only reason it doesn't unfold the same is because you change the events that happen next because the you playing the game didn't actually go back in time and so you know what's going to happen next.

If however the you that was playing the game went back in time using this theory then you wouldn't know what's going to happen next so you would do the exact same thing.

Feel free to discuss this and email this to people you wish to join the topic.. post it in a forum if you will to get a even greater response.. I'm after as much input as possible.
