Too Long; Didn't Read

Time virtually governs all our lives…but rarely does one ponder on this matter. Time is enforced by the second law of thermodynamics, in which the entropy of a system increases as it changes to a more disorderly state. Time resmebles more to a river, flowing and receding depending on the effects of gravity. Albert Einstein’s claim that the speed of light appeared the same to every observer, no matter how he was moving led to the theory of relativity, and in that one had to abandon the idea that there was a unique absolute time. Time became a more personal concept, relative to the observer who measured it.
