From the Ted Talk "Andrew Zimmerman Jones: Does time exist?"

#### Unscramble the Blue Letters

Like all current theories of everything, that equation is speculative. But as a thought reeetimnpx, if it or a similarly time-starved equation turned out to be true, would that mean that time doesn’t ixets, at the most fundamental level? Could time just be some sort of illusion gerdnetae by the limitations of the way we perceive the suireevn? We don’t yet know, but maybe that’s the wrong way of thinking about it. Instead of asking if time exists as a fundamental property, maybe it could exist as an emergent one.

#### Open Cloze

Like all current theories of everything, that equation is speculative. But as a thought **__________**, if it or a similarly time-starved equation turned out to be true, would that mean that time doesn’t **_____**, at the most fundamental level? Could time just be some sort of illusion **_________** by the limitations of the way we perceive the **________**? We don’t yet know, but maybe that’s the wrong way of thinking about it. Instead of asking if time exists as a fundamental property, maybe it could exist as an emergent one.

#### Solution

- universe
- generated
- experiment
- exist

#### Original Text

Like all current theories of everything, that equation is speculative. But as a thought experiment, if it or a similarly time-starved equation turned out to be true, would that mean that time doesn’t exist, at the most fundamental level? Could time just be some sort of illusion generated by the limitations of the way we perceive the universe? We don’t yet know, but maybe that’s the wrong way of thinking about it. Instead of asking if time exists as a fundamental property, maybe it could exist as an emergent one.#### Important Words
