Time is a fundamental human concept.

The arguments in In Search of Time prove time per se is not intrinsic to the universe, it is a tool used by humans to measure the period between events. That is, time is a construct of conceptualization, a tool of consciousness.

Einstein used Space-Time in the explanation of gravity. But time does not exist, it is a psychological construct, a convenient measuring device of sentience. Therefore, Einstein’s theory of gravity as mass distorting space-time is wrong.

It follows, what is gravity?
