1 Time is a most beautiful abstraction – “she” is ageless.
2 Time measurement (calibration): the recurrence of definable events.
3 Time is a unique abstraction - its invariance is non-verifiable.
4 Time admits of progression.
5 Simply because two or more working systems demonstrate synchrony is not sufficient either to define a meaningful expression for time, nor of time's invariance
6 Time is only useful to us provided we are able to accept its invariance in practice. Note: as a fundamental concept, by "definition" time has to be assumed invariant.
7 Mathematics is a powerful tool but one that needs to be treated with caution: it is adept at proving itself right but seldom admits to being wrong.
