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

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Like all currnet theories of everything, that equation is speculative. But as a thought experiment, if it or a similarly time-starved eqaiotun 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 esixts as a fnaamnutdel property, maybe it could exist as an emergent one.
