Time can be measured on a chronometer you might be carrying or wearing. Time can be considered a concept, construed/understood as a continuum we operate within. Human beings cannot understand things happening without some sense of time, regardless of how relative (indicated by the use of language like ‘before’ or ‘after’) or rigidly measured (such as ‘eleven hours, fifty eight minutes and forty two seconds’ later) the frame(s) of reference for the sequence of events might be. Because of this, our language reflects the omnipresence of time via the incorporation of the past, present and future tenses of verb forms.
