What are you talking about?

Are you referring to the artificial measurement of time (i.e. SI units of seconds)?

- if this didn't exist, it wouldn't really matter;
- humans have worked without an accurate measurement of time for centuries before the standardisation of time measurement world-wide;
- it used to be just "work from dawn", "rest at dusk" for hundreds of thousands of years.

Or the space-time continuum of time (4th dimension)?

- if this doesn't exist, then you wouldn't either;
- end of story (think you being in a black hole)

Or the perception of movement of time as experienced by your body (i.e. your brain)?

- there are some very interesting brain conditions which could lead to you thinking time hasn't passed;
- for example, patients suffering from anterograde amnesia are unable to form new memory therefore they are sort of "stuck" in time. H.M. is a famous example, who kept thinking it was the 1950s even all the way until his death in the 2000s.

I have plenty more examples, but have to go back to work :ciao:

I am overthinking your question so much

The perception of movement of time as experienced by your body and the artificial measurement of time (i.e. SI units of seconds / minutes / hours). Basically imagine, in the world where time did not exist, what would you experience? [ like immortality ]

technically he has supersonic speeds : his speed allows him to move faster than a normal human mind can even perceive, His speed is so immense that seconds after the initial explosion of the X-Mansion, he was able to effectively save the dozens of inhabitants inside, before the explosion reached peak combustion, at a speed of 2,748,235 MPH (Mach 3,581)

Of course this (immortality) wouldn't happen. There are only two things that are certain - and even tax didn't really exist before proper civilisations.

If there was no time; people would still die - they will still grow old; they may think they have survived 20 / 30 Summers and Winters; rather than "years" that we think of. (think prehistoric cavemen)

This is assuming you are still based on Earth - it would be different on other planets / star systems.

If time did not exist we would be in eternity which is the same as before we were born and after we die

Sorry but I belive you are incorrect, Einstein showed time dilation in his theory therefore he states that if a person travels at the speed of light their clock slows down therfore their ageing process, having no time implies no aging, therfore immortality
