    Time began after the universe cooled enough to allow for the differentiation of “stuff”. Before that was pretty homogeneous and as such there is no information beyond that point. Time is the measure of information propagation in reality, or at least that is one way to look at it. Everything basically boils down to the transmission of information.

    Time doesn’t really exist until human discovered it. I think time is just part of human structure, to measure the past, and events to the present so we can create timeline because i’m sure time doesn’t stop even we are asleep.

    My first inclination was time needs an observer, an entity that learned to tune to cycles. Be it plant or animal.

    But the stars and galaxies that we know to exist and as we have come to understand, it takes billions of years for galaxies to form, and they have been doing so way before we were aware… Time as we know it originated with the birth of our universe. If we have learned how long it has taken for everything that we know to be as it is, then what we know as time had to be occuring for at least that long.

    …but I don’t think the universe really cares about what we percieve as time, it still takes some sort of life to appreciate time.

    I guess I am a tad confused on the matter. So both! Time as we know it originated with the birth of the universe, but it requires some form of life to appreciate it…? But as for the stars and galaxies and all that go with them, I doubt time is an awareness. it just is.

    My eldest son, a college student with some philosophy classes under his belt, argues with me that time is a construct of human nature but does not otherwise exist. I still feel like it is there, otherwise we would not have been able to measure it. I think my answer is still both.

      Your fist inclination is in my view correct.

      And I could also agree with your son on time being a human construct as many things are.

      Always a pleasure reading from you
