    Wink The Speed of Time

    People say time is flowing. But everything that is flow be moving.
    But everything that is move must have velocity.
    So what is the velocity of time?
    day per day?
    that is nonsense.

    Explain it to me.
    Are you actually saying that time isnt moving?
    If so, how can human do any temporal activity?
    If so, what is past, present, and future?

    You can move as far as you like within the three physical dimensions (length, width, height), but your position will change over time. Therefore, length, width and height depend on time. Thus time is another dimension.
