time......

so you tell me what time is.

we have clocks and calendars and day-timers and so on to create time structures that we can agree on, but does time exist seperate from what we agree on?

so the question is not what time it is, but what time actually is..........

Time is a concept (tool) mankind came up with to try to understand and explains things with. Time means nothing to the cosmos, or to omnipresent beings.

yes, and as a tool it is perfect to repress people.

we have all the time we need because we create time in our consciousness as we go........as omnipresent beings.

only a fascist would say we have a limited amount of time.

or consciousness.

I believe this was covered in Einstein's specific theory of relativity, no? The Twin Paradox?

well einstein was a bit of a mystic, but swedenborg has much more to say about the nature of time as a metaphysical construct.
