    Yes, sure. What's your point? We have to have some reference to determine, for example, the order of events in history. It's arbitrary-- but so are a lot of things in life. Everyone knows that things don't automatically change on Jan. 1, but it's a symbol of a chance for a new start.

    Yes, in order for time to exist (as we know it), a human being must perceive it. 

    If the sun is 4.6 billion years old, what are you using to calculate that number?

    OK, good.  Whatever floats your boat.

    If you choose to look at it that way.  I'd say that to most of us it's more meaningful than a moment in time.

    Agreed. But all we have to decide is what to do with the time we are here.

    Yeah time is largely a human invention, or at least the way we measure it is, yet we are still all bound to it whether we like it or not. Neat, eh?
