Hi All,

I'm trying to make sense of the "time" in spacetime. I understand that Einstein chaned the way of thinking to object following a path in space time, and that matter bends space time but I really dont unserstand where the time part in space time comes from. Can someone please help me out here?

Thanks

Warrick
