What Is Time?

I’m trying to understand how time works. And that’s a huge question that has
lots of different aspects to it. A lot of them go back to Einstein and spacetime
and how we measure time using clocks. But the particular aspect of time that I’m
interested in is the arrow of time: the fact that the past is different from the
future. We remember the past but we don’t remember the future. There are
irreversible processes. There are things that happen, like you turn an egg into
an omelet, but you can’t turn an omelet into an egg.

Time is always a “wow this is fascinating; ouch my brain hurts” subject. This interview at Wired is a great read.

Check it out and tell me what you think. Is time liniar? Is it circular? Is it a myth?
