this is a rather philosophical question. in my opinion time does not exist. it is just a concept created by man to better understand the world and quantify changes and progress. actually if you see it in another perspective, time is actually affected by the speed of light. if light were to travel slower, time would pass more slowly (the time laspe between the change and the time we see the change is longer cause light takes a longer time to reach our eyes, thus we percieve time to travel more slowly.)

Three points: 1. In expanding the fields of knowledge we lessen ignorance of the frontiers of knowledge, by increasing our awareness of what we don't know. 2. In expanding the fields of knowledge, some increase their ignorance by neglecting knowledge, i.e., taking techne for granted, hence become ignorant both of what is known and what is held as subjects of inquiry. 3. In expanding the fields of knowledge, some increase their ignorance by dogmatically claiming knowledge, hence ignoring the very understanding of what knowing involves...including the ability to contemplate new and/or possible paradigms, particularly those based on outlying anomalous data points.

It's a really good idea to showcase your personal philosophy in a college essay. You don't have to formally prove your thesis in this kind of paper as if it were a math class, but you should look at some research/data that supports your view. For instance, you could read Oliver Sacks' book Musicophilia or mention how music has had a role in so many civilizations throughout history - there is tons of data and info out there about the importance of music to humans, you can have your pick of the ones that best support your position. In a college application essay, it is not so important whether you use a formal proof or write objectively or subjectively, the essay is a means by which you show the admissions people that you have your own mind and that you can express your thoughts eloquently. I think your thesis should be an original opinion, and you should use both personal experience and research to back it up.

Like Punk said, time is man made. That being said I understand that everything we see is carried in photons and once a photon is created it never ceases. Want to see the past? simply find the random photon flying off behind us. Want to see the future? Sorry, that photon isnt availalble yet, come back after the fact. Time is necessary for human interaction and it was devised as a tool for just that. Man made time is a good thing, but not a natural force.

Yeah I am a time traveller. I'm always going into the future. I've never went back to the past. It's something that we can not control. It just goes by so fast! If it does not exist then tomorrow won't as well!

time is man made it is also relative (meaning it differs from person and place) time is a measurement. time doesnt really exist in space or anything away from human activity mainly.

Time is man made. Also are clocks run with the time of earth, so if you were in space it would be all disorganized. uhm, I also her the high elevation you are from earth the slower time is on you.

time is something you have so much of when you are young but don't appreciate it...as your time gets stretched from one commitment to another as you get older- have more responsibilities...you miss it
