Time and Distance. Or is it Distance and Distance.

When you look at a clock it is measuring time.  Or is it?

Look at the clock again.  It is measuring distance.  Distance.  Not events.  Change in distance.

If you look at the rotation of the earth.  A rotation is a distance.

If you look at the revolution of the earth around the sun.  A revolution is distance.

If you look at an atomic clock.  It is measuring a distance.

Velocity is Distance / Relative Distance.

Events are artificial cuts in the distances.  We invented events.  Motion does not stop in the big scheme.

All we have are intersections of relative distances.
