I don't think that time by definition can even exist without motion, (Can it?), or at least the concept of motion (AKA change).
Thank you for the lengthy posts. I will study them as time allows.
With all physics aside. I dont believe time is dependent on change/motion in order for it to exist. As a matter of fact. I believe it is impossible for time not to exist. I cannot conceive of the non-existence of time, any more than I can the non-existence of space.
I think everything is dependent on space and time, but space and time are dependent on nothing. I think time can exist with no change, but not the other way around. It seems obvious that if time didnt exist before the inflation of the universe, then it never would have happened.
In its truest sense, I consider time to be a passing of moments. Flowing like a river through eternity. We perceive these intervals in a way that is meaningful to us. But I suppose they could be divided infinitely small or large. Perhaps in a fractilian way that is transparent to our senses.
