Concerning Time No 3

A year is measured by the number of days it takes the Earth to go around the sun, and a day is measured by the Earth spinning on its own axis. But, does this really have any relevance to what time is? Our past was what we were a moment ago. Every moment, old cells in our bodies die and new ones form to take their places, that is time to human beings the dying and renewing of oneself. This means every one of us has a unique age. Even two twins maybe a different age under this definition of time.
This means that if you see an old man and a young man walking down the street, the old man may indeed be younger than the young man. The reason for this is the old man may have more moments in which his body will renew itself.
