I Do most physicists believe time flows?

  1. Mar 16, 2017 #1
    I am not asking the question as to whether or not time is real, I am asking the question as to whether or not time flows as in does physics favor:






    So are two different points in time both equally real? Or is time's flows just how we perceive it?

    Also can time crystals exist if time didn't flow?

    Is there a general consensus among physicists or are they divide on this?
