How could we relate to the world around us without the concept of time?

I have often wondered about what life would be like if I could not include the concept of time. It is in EVERYTHING we do, think, talk about, it is a component of life that is completely man made, it seems to me it is the glue that holds everything together? without it... what do we have? how do we explain? where do we stand?
what is NOW?
So, how would you explain " life" without time? the universe without Time? all your thoughts without implementing time?

    May 31 2011: Time is a temporary interuption in the concept of eternity! This side of heaven, time and life are inseparable. Have you ever thought about the word 'lifetime'? It means as long as you have life, you are going to have time! You simply can't help it! Time is the only factor on earth that you will always have as long as you life! Think about it! That makes Time more important than every other issue, even money. So stop saying Time is money, because it isn't! Time is Life!
