Before reading this, please note that my knowledge of physics at this time is quite poor as I'm only 15.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Time is only measurable when relative to a progression/regression of something. Therefore, the limit to which we can measure time depends on the shortest possible progression/regression. Because time = distance/speed, the shortest time must be one that is over the shortest distance possible and at the fastest speed. The shortest possible length possible is the planck length and the fastest possible speed is the speed of light. Therefore, because time only "exists" when measured relative to a progression or regression, the shortest possible time is defined as: ℓP/c = 1.616199 × 10^{-35}/m / 299 792 458 m/s.

I'm probably completely wrong about this, just some thoughts. I'd appreciate any feedback on where I went wrong, and why.

Thanks
