“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn 't happen at once" -Albert Einstein (StatusMinds). Time is the measurement between two events, or even the absence of events. I was interested in time because of its sheer complexity. We use time everyday to know when to be at school, when traffic is going to be the worst, what time dinner is at, when to go to sleep and wake up, and these are only some examples. You might have even checked the clock before you started to read this.

We also aren 't sure how fast it moves, and much, much more. Time has some incredible aspects to it. It has the ability to break physics, possibly last forever, and can be affected by gravity while not being physical. I will be discussing all of these aspects along with much more in this paper. The exact definition of time is: "The indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole"(Marian-Webster).

“We all travel in time. During the last year, I 've moved forward one year and so have you,” ( The question that is much more likely being asked is can you speed up time, or put it in reverse. The answer is humans truly don 't know. Physicists theorize that reverse time travel could be impossible, but think that it could be very possible to travel forward. The reason that reverse time travel would be challenging is because scientists would have to find something traveling faster than the speed of light. Some theories say things like wormholes could throw you into the future, or possibly the past, but technology isn 't developed enough to truly
