Time is motion. Nothing more nothing less. The energy of motion in the universe is the present all at once.

Motion has the dimensions of space AND time. The energy of motion (kinetic energy) has one component of mass and another of velocity squared. The present, being a fixed instant in time, can have zero motion. Since it assumes no passage of time.
Frozen in time is a oxymoron.
When an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, the result is that some form of change has to occur, and change is fundamental aspect of time.
Time has to already exist for something to be said to happen.Does the unstoppable force, and the immovable object not have to be already operating within the parameters of time to be able to even approach each other, to meet?
I should also mention that I've begun to question whether or not time is actually the 4th dimension.If it is, and there are more than 4 dimensions, how would you describe a higher-dimensional velocity? distance_dim / distance_dim+1 would make sense, except that it means there is either an infinite number of dimensions, that there is some timeless dimension at the end for which there is no velocity; or like I suggested in regards to a finite universe, there is some fuzzy limit on the number of dimensions (eg. time may gradually get slower the higher each dimension goes, until there is eventually no time at all)If time was not a dimension, or the 0th dimension, then the entire universe would run on a single clock.
