The world is deterministic and we just move through the time-dimension at constant speed (1s per sec).

    Time is an illusion.
        Drink up!
      If time is just an illusion then our entire reality is an illusion. Time is simply how we process our planet rotating around the sun. It can also be measured by our moon rotating around our planet. Time is relative to our location. Meditative contemplatives aside, time is quite real. Unless we are not real ...
        I know I'm real. Even if I'm a program running in a huge quantum computer, I'm still real.

    Ah, but that does not discount the concept of decision making. The idea of compatibilism states that the presence of deterministic laws does not discount free will. http://existentialcomics.com/comic/70

    $thanks++, zsl
