TIME - does it really exist?

Time consists of 3 parts - past, present and future, future does not exist right now, past no more exists now and present takes no time to vanish , as such where is time.

Just because of performance of an action which happened, either it's happening or it will happen in future, the illusionary birth of time took place otherwise there is nothing known as time, it's an illusion.

A moment is like an epoch to one in distress and for the one in happiness, a night of revelry passes like a moment. As such the question of existence of time or measuring it does not arise.

There are 14 different planes of existence as per Vedas and all are bound by different time scales. All this together is only infinite consciousness.

The famous quote from the Rigveda "Who verily knows and who can here declare it, whence it was born and whence comes this creation?The Gods are later than this world's production. Who knows then whence it first came into being?He, the first origin of this creation, whether he formed it all or did not form it, Whose eye controls this world in highest heaven, he verily knows it, or perhaps he knows not".

There is no Middle, no beginning and no end to it. When there is no beginning, obviously it cannot have an end too and hence the question of anything in between does not arise. Hence where is the question of measuring it in time.
