It is the passage from one segment to another. That is an ordered passage from one moment to the next.
So simple! So if we want to stop the time we stop all clocks and if we want to go back in time we just make them run backwards. Ingenious!

Let me make my point again. Time is duration. You cannot turn back time in the same way you cannot make duration negative in the same way you cannot make distance negative in the same way you cannot make volume that is bigger on the inside than on outside.
