What is time?

I was thinking the other day that we all measure time by the distance around a center axis. Our earth time is measured by the length of days to orbit the sun as our axis. Our solar system rotates around an axis as do other galaxies. So my thought was how does time get measured at the central point of the measured axis? What is time in the very center of any axis? Can it be measured? Just thinking.

  • Jul 28 2011: But then the question begins, How BIG is BIG and how small is small. At what point of the center of the axis will there be no movement? No distance traveled like on the outside of a circle. What is in the very center of an axis that is used to measure time? Other Galaxies? Other Dimensions? Just wondering.
