Concerning Time No 2

It seems to me that the position of the sun and the stars in the sky may not determine our past, present, or future. To get a better idea of what I am saying consider a tree. A tree starts out as a seed that is its beginning. A tree grows at a certain rate into a sapling. It then continues to grow until it is a full size tree. If we look at the tree at its current size that is its present, and its past is when it was a seed, a sapling, and every other size in between its current size. It is always drifting into the future, because it is always changing.
The sun's rays do play a part in its growth, but it alone doesn't determine the tree's destiny. Time for the tree is best measured by its growth. The end of the tree's time is when its changes come to an end.
