Z!re... you're correct about time... because it was invented by men... who also invented all the dimensions... so than it could be correct... not really my type of work...

The problem of the actual number of dimensions of our universe is still open, as some theories (such as the string theory) predict as many as 26. In these theories however all the additional dimensions are such that the universe measured along them is subatomic in size. As a result, even if the universe had many more dimensions, we would only perceive 4 of them. (Wikipeadia - spacetime)

Minkowski space is named for the German mathematician Hermann Minkowski, who around 1907 realized that the theory of special relativity previously worked out by Einstein and Lorentz could be elegantly described using a four-dimensional spacetime, which combines the dimension of time with the three dimensions of space. (Wikipeadia - Minkowski space)

?The views of space and time which I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of experimental physics, and therein lies their strength. They are radical. Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality.? ? Hermann Minkowski, 1908

With the vast resources of the internet available including but no limited to Science, Mathematics, Cosmology, Quantum Physics, Metaphysics, and Philosophy - why would one not delve into those repositories?
