thiniking about what time might be... quotes from "The Myth Of Keeping Universal Time" by Varanasi Ramabrahmam, Associate Professor of Physics, K.M. Center for P.G studies, Pondicherry cognitive science, philosophy of science, philosophy of time

Daily routine of us, worldly or scientific, is time-based, time-related and time-bound...
The origin, being and cessation of things, objects, events, processes, thoughts and life systems
are time-specific.
All natural and non-natural processes are assumed by us to take place
in accordance with time and its passage.
We have knowledge of the extent of passage of time
by referring to watches, clocks, various time-measuring devices, calendars, almanacs etc.
The awareness of Time
through these measures is only a facet of nature of Time and is not comprehensive and complete.
Awareness of nature of Time is varied and is not unique.
Passage of time bears powerfully on human emotions in the form of past and future.
The nature, structure and manifestation of time are seldom of interest to normal human-beings.
 
Human observation and experience recognize physical and psychological existences of time.
Time has durational (period) and metrical (counting) aspects.
 
Physical existence as a flow and period of happening is physical time.
There is no time.
There is no passage of time.
There is only ongoing of processes.
