Could Dark Energy and Dark Matter be .......? Time? I am sure that there is hundreds of reasons why this could not be possible but, it seems to me that there is some kind of synergy in this hypothesis. Imagine for a moment that time is a form of energy that we have not yet managed to quantify, but it stands to reason that if time occurs it must be something and have some "footprint". Further to this if time had a form of energy that we have not been able to quantify, could time (and perhaps gravity itself) also have mass that we have not been able to quantify? Seeing as time occurs everywhere in the universe, then that means there is a LOT of it and if it had energy and mass, it would be a LOT. Could it be that "time energy" could account for almost three-quarters of the total energy of the universe? And could it be possible that the "time's mass" could be the "dark matter" that we are missing? If anyone can explain in simple terms for me, why this is not possible, I would appreciate the feedback. Thanks.
