Question description

I'm stuck on the last sentence,at that point I myself didn't even understand what I was saying haha is it fair to say its accurate or could someone help explain that it to me a bit better? Thank you!1) A) Explain the difference between what is meant by "physical time" and what is meant by "subjective or psychological time"When we discuss time in terms of measurement of units such as seconds, minutes, hours we usually describe this as physical time, where its ability tobe measured plays a predominant role in this description. This view of time describes it as a relative, measuring events and objects. It would be accurate tosay that this type time is a human construct with the aim of organizing our life and assisting in making sense of the world around us. The way most of us have cometo know physical time is through what we know of as clock time, which uses units such as minutes, however the origin for our clock time goes to show that our concept ofphysical time is partly subjective and discourages the idea of time as a existential part of our reality. Clock time as we know it has its origins the movement of our Earth, whereone rotation equals a day, and one revolution or trip around the sun equals a year. The consistency and convenience of this phenomenon is what makes this the reason for our clock time, however there are other naturally occurring events that we could have easily used to describe the same thing. For example, we could used the phases of the moon to describe months or the rise and fall of tides to describe days. Whatever helps create stability in our world without having too much of an erratic schedule would be sufficient to use as a measurement of time. What this means is that a minute, an hour, or a day can virtually be anything we want it to be and so in reality the only thing that we perceive is not time itself, but rather a correlation of events or motion. Unfortunately that does not explain why we are able to perceive change in an object, such a child growing up, this ability exists not becauseof an actual existence of time, but rather because of our brains ability to process the external world. Furthermore, once we experience the present there can no longer exist the past, what we see as the past is a memory,a fabrication of our brain that exists only in our mind,any results of change that we see in our world can be described as the present
