A Mathematician's View on the Existence of Time

  • #1
I am not certain if this is the right location to put this post, but since this is a section for mathematics and my question is one for mathematicians, it will be placed here for now:

How would you, as a mathematician, view time? More precisely, do you think time exists?

It might be strange to ask specifically for a mathematician's view, and perhaps a mathematician's view may be no different from a physicist's view or a philosopher's view but I am interested if there any interesting tidbits a mathematician can add.

I also welcome any input from presentists, possibilists, and eternalists out there.

Yesterday, I didn't think time existed but today I do.

This thread does not meet the guidelines of this forum. The mathematics forum is suitable only for technical questions about mathematics, not for philosophy.
