    Water flows because of the gravity. Time flows because of what?

    Time flows because of mind

    Nah, that's just me pretending to be all Zen and spiritual and all that bollocks

    Gravity does have an effect on time too.

    Because of consciousness and the perception of time as something that's linear.

    Who knows..

    Time is actually an illusion - it's just a human perception. 'Time' changes depending on speed and proximity to mass. All moments in time are equally real and co-exist, it's just we experience the universe via the arrow of time.

    Time flows (passes) because of all crap posted on internet and because of all dead ends and set backs.

    No one knows, but the facts make you wonder...

    1. Everything in the universe is moving at the speed of light. You, me and the rest of the mass are moving at the speed of light along the 'time' axis. Rays of light move at speed of light along the 'space' axes.

    2. Every time you speed up along the 'space' axes, you slow down along the 'time' axis, and vise versa. E.q. your total speed in space-time cannot exceed the speed of light.

    3. Time doesn't 'flow' for rays of light, because they are moving at the speed of light along the 'space' axes. If you were a photon you wouldnt have the time to realize that you're alive. Actually, there would be exactly 0 time between the moment you are born and the moment you die. During that 0 time you could travel across the entire universe.

    4. Some suggest that this is exactly whats happening when you fall into a black hole (past the event horizon). 1 dimension becomes unavailable for traveling, instead you're dragged along it at the speed of light. When you move aside, you 'fall' slower. Given that, time could 'flow' because of gravity as well.

    Given that all there is to know is infinite and all that we do know is impossibly small in comparison the only logical answer is that we do not know, nor shall we ever... some good guesses though!

    Perception? If a tree in the woods grows old and dies with no one around to perceive it does time pass? :p

    I have a headache now... thanks!

    Not all water flows because of gravity:

    /watch?v=XFqsdpCB-O8

    Leidenfrost effect, it can be heat, pressure, wind, surface composition and chemical influence.

    Superfluids can also flow upwards.

    Time flows because the illuminati make it flow, and if they don't want it to flow, it will not flow, they control everything you know.

    I believe time is not something to be measured, it's just us, humans, trying to pin-point an exact moment when things where this way. It flows because we say it does :)

    Time isn't anything, it's just something we make up. It's not relative to speed. Just because you speed up doesn't mean time slowed down, it just means you got more shit done.
