Default Is Time An Illusion?

I mean, it exists, but does it really? Is time not just a convention dreamed up by humans by which to measure our existence? If every single person in the world agreed not to recognise time from tomorrow, what would it mean to us? Sure, we'd age anyway but we'd just realise at some point we were getting slower and less able to do the things we used to do. There would be no concept of late or early, being just in time or having schedules or anything. Obviously it would be impossible, but just for the sake of spitballing, would you agree that time is just our own invention? Or not?

It’s entropy.

I don't know if it's an illusion, but time is on my side. Yes it is.

It's not an illusion, but it is arbitrary.

Yeah well God may also be an illusion, but He's on my side.

I'm not sure how scientifically solid this is, but in a way, maybe time doesn't exist as much as it's just a way for us to understand the world around us. There is really only movement. Even clocks measure time by moving. When the big arm is here instead of there, we call that an our. The clock arm has to move a certain speed over a certain distance, of course, then it's one hour.
Particles move. The only reason time seems to exist is that the causal chain of all that movement of particles and energy rays goes in one direction. A ball that rolls into a still standing ball, causes that ball to move. It can't happen the other way around, so that's the causal chain, and so time is really just what we call forward movement of atoms and ****. Or maybe that's all B.S. But as far as I know, time doesn't, as such, "exist". It is purely conceptual, unlike matter and movement.

So you're saying I don't need a new muffler?

Just because time doesn't exists it doesn't mean it isn't going to wreck your ****.
