Time: Examining the Wibbly, Wobbly, Timey Wimey...Stuff

Time is perhaps one of the greatest mysteries of the Universe. Scientists and philosophers alike explore what time means, how it works, and what it’s made of. All throughout time (see what we did there?) questions have arose about the nature of time--questions like “Did humans invent time?”, “do animals experience time?”, “Is time the same everywhere?” Many of these questions do not have a solid or steadfast answer, but that doesn"t mean that we, as humans, stop seeking the answers.

Since time is a subject that has philosophical undertones, in certain instances, it is outside of the realm of science. So instead of focusing on the nature of time, let"s focus on how humans observe time in a physical sense.
