# New theory of time suggests that the past, present AND future co-exist in the universe

The intriguing theory was put forward by Dr Bradford Skow, an associated professor of philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

In his new book, Objective Becoming, he examines some of the theories that have been postulated to explain time.

‘When you ask people, “Tell me about the passage of time,” they usually make a metaphor,’ he said.

1. Time is a math concept used by physicists to attempt to explain the universe as it is.
A more important question is the Universe a sentinent being?

The Bible supports the view of a beginning of time and an end of time. It calls God the beginning and the end.

So what happens when time no longer exists?
At the world beyond our microscopes physicists have discovered the Universe actually has at least 11 dimensions of space plus several dimensions of time.
Time is the distance an object is capable of moving between two points. Time can be measured as low as 1/millionth of a second or more.
Einstein in his famous formula based time as a limited concept. In other words, using math the man made a point in which an object is moving so fast that it is occupying two places at the same time. That was the speed of light.
So what exactly is time? How does it work?
When an object goes so fast does it move backwards in time? For instance a supernova might move that fast.
Or how about two black holes colliding? There is an event horizon around a black hole. So if two have a head on collision do objects between them go faster than light? If so, then time must do some really weird things.
And how do things act that are moving around the center of the Galaxy? Obviously those objects are moving a lot slower than things close to the black hole at the center of the galaxy. The pinwheel effect of galactic arms? They too are moving relatively slow.
The question of time is one that physics people are still attempting to figure out. The galaxy is supposed to be only 15 billion Earth Years old.
Yet space is much larger than 30 billion light years across. More like 100 billion light years across. So how did it get that way? Because if the universe is only 15 billion years old and it is bigger than that obviously the speed of light could not possibly account for it.
