I think it's more like, languages ar'nt properly made to handle the description.
It's there, but it's not how we oprganize it, but I don't meant o say we are wrong.
I am simply stating that we have, in english, named it Time, and by following te patterns we have come to a conclusion of a way to organize things that applies from everything to speed, to age which is directly a result of matabolism speed.
Time is basically so fast, in 1/100th of a millisecond billions of "frames" pass by.
So in our demension, time runs. Everything in is is set to run. Our matobolism makes us grow old as well as moniters the speed of bodily functions, the faster your matobolism the faster you age, and do thing(saily things like, restroom use and such) and usually faster matabolisms are triggered when you are helathier, which makes you live lnoger as well.
In all, things progress, and do their own thing, time is just a description of those patterns.
THis is exactly why I laugh whenever clocks have a direct effect on stories of time machines and stuff. CLocks are just there to show us what "time" it is where we are,so we can keep to a schedule. If you think aobut it things like daylights savings time are all just there as excuses to make it organized, and the record of time as many know it in line so it doesn't get out of whack. Leap Years? ANd extra day added to account for the loss of time over the cours eof a few years, which if we got rid of it added untrackable milliseconds into each day, which is alot eaiser to round off.
