There are instances where time appears to be space. Distance is meaningless without time. So far in particle physics time is a major component of the behavior of particles. But no specific particle can be attributed to time. It appears to be part of some group phenomena.

well time in physics is just considered part of a vector.
vectors are 3 things, 1)magnitude, 2)direction(space) and 3)duration(time)

So to consider time as a particle, it likely would be a force particle...aka a vector.
but vectors are composed of space and time...how would it travel through itself?

unless our spacetime is fake. A hologram

How about Tachyons, assuming of course they exist?

I thought movement was meaningless without time, not distance. My bad. Thank you for replying. :)

Consider the fact that our science does not present to us phenemena the way our reality presents it to us. We aren't on the same page with the universe yet.
