The pace of living quickens continuously, yet a full understanding of things temporal still eludes us
Hypothetical twins who age at different rates suggest the answer is no
Atomic clocks are shrinking to microchip size, heading for space—and approaching the limits of useful precision
Several brain structures contribute to “mind time,” organizing our experiences into chronologies of remembered events
A small group of futurists and engineers have begun building a mechanical clock meant to tick through 1,000 decades
Could time end? Yes. And no. Recent work in physics suggests a resolution to the paradox
What is time? The answer varies from society to society
The concepts of time and change may emerge from a universe that, at root, is utterly static
Do the inner workings of nature change with time?
It wouldn't be easy, but it might be possible
