If time doesn't exist, why do we age?

  • Time does exist, but in different forms I believe. We use time as a form of measure. It is our way of understanding or grasping the way our life spans and things around us continue on. It also helps us to fathom immense distances that are just ludicrous to comprehend. Such as space travel. We use time (light years) to understand how f*cking far it is to another galaxy. Where if we did it by an actual distance unit, it couldn't be calculated properly or understood correctly. We also use it for judging immense speeds such as light speed for example. Once you past light speed you need another form of measurement to understand something that fast. But I'm getting a little off topic here.

    We age regardless of how we record or register our life span. We age because we are not forever. Our bodies are only able to function for a short amount of time (compared to the actual existence of the universe, which in all intensive purposes is everlasting). We're lucky we live even to our 60s because of advances in biological understanding, vast medical improvements and improvements in our way of life and the greater good for our future offspring. So time is not really relevant. It is a tool we use, but true life does not run on times, it runs on everlasting I believe, and without time, we have no way of understanding what existence is really.

  • Aging is a physical degenerative condition that is naturally associatef with the overuse of your body coupled with ambient radiation, the aging process is primarily caused physically exhaustion and the body's increasing inability to efficiently repair the different parts of the body, when you are young (1 to 28 years) your body is capable of repairing your body at top efficiency especially for children who in rare cases can regrow entire parts of their body like their brain, however as we age the body enters the degenerative cycle which is a stage in your life when your DNA is badly enough damaged by ambient radiation that it starts to degrade and make it more difficult for your body to regenerate, eventually the damage becomes so significant that it may start mutations like tumors, cysts, fibrosis and cancer, the highest number of cancer cases in the world are in in the US which is caused by their obese and sun tanned populace as well as their overworked/overstressed populace, while asia suffers from deaths less associated by mutations and more from other causes

  • It's physics and possibly chemistry too. Gravity is a big factor as to why we age if I remembered correctly. Not so much as to time causing us age, as "time" really is just a concept humans have conceptualized and created it as a system to help keep track of certain things such as for scheduling and planning purposes.

    There are some indigenous life forms here on earth that are completely unaffected by the effects of aging such as the Hydra and the immortal jellyfish, Turritopsis dohrnii, and some microbacteria are also unaffected if I remembered correctly.

  • Time (and aging) exists on the physical level. But we are multi dimensional beings :)

  • "Time" exists because we humans made up something to describe a natural phenomenon. It's the same as anything, physics, math, biology are something that we use to describe something that naturally just is there. The only reasons we made these up are so that we can understand it, but even if we didn't understand, it would be the same

  • Ageing is probably a biological process caused by use rather than time

  • Time DOES exist. It is a constant, never ending movement forward. The past is gone. The future does not exist.

  • Time does exist, otherwise we wouldn't age if it didn't. Human beings and all living things are within the jurisdiction of time. We age because that is now part of our existence.

  • .. because we lose the elasticity in our skin. Our body changes , and skin renewal slows down. The sun rays cause aging too.
