Time was first broken up into segments by ancient Egyptians and then those segments were spread around the world by traders and explorers. Humans have this innate need to break up, subdivide and chunk out time. But, the real question is, does it matter? Is time even really there? Is time simply another dimension like length, width, and depth? Find out this week as we dig deeper into the Concept of Time!

10:35 The illusion of time
#TimeIsAConstruct that we humans invented to try and explain the changes and movements of the universe that are happening around us. Time is our way of trying to bring order to cosmic chaos. So, you could say that this series is me, trying to bring a little order to my understanding of time! Where did time come from? What is time? Where does time exist? What is the base unit of time? Why do we even need time? Why does time seem to slow down when something crazy happens or when you’re bored? How did time come to be? What about relativity and quantum mechanics? What the HECK is this thing we call TIME?! You’ll have the answers. Let’s kick into it.

Where did the segments of time come from?
Why is a minute divided into 60 seconds, an hour into 60 minutes, yet there are only 24 hours in a day?
In today’s world, the most widely used numeral system is decimal (base 10), a system that probably originated because it made it easy for humans to count using their fingers. The civilizations that first divided the day into smaller parts, however, used different numeral systems, specifically duodecimal (base 12) and sexagesimal (base 60).
ABC Science: Why are there 24 hours in a day?
"Night-time was divided in 12 hours, based on the observations of stars. The Egyptians had a system of 36 star groups called ‘decans’ — chosen so that on any night one decan rose 40 minutes after the previous one.
A Brief History of (Modern) Time
Today, we take our global system of timekeeping largely for granted: 24 time zones rippling serenely outward from Greenwich; a year of 12 months, divided into 52 weeks, recognized from San Francisco to Shanghai; the much-loathed biannual leap of daylight saving time.

This physicist’s ideas of time will blow your mind
Time feels real to people. But it doesn’t even exist, according to quantum physics. “There is no time variable in the fundamental equations that describe the world,” theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli tells Quartz.
