Time to me is one of the most concrete examples of our sense abilities. For example: We see time as the sun rise or sun set, the wrinkles on an old persons face, the mold on a piece of bread, etc. We can smell and taste time as sour milk. We can hear time as the screeching sound of tea boiling in a tea kettle.

Also the thing about memory can be explained by some theories of quantum physics. I have a book that explains those theories, but it's at home. I'll see if I can locate some when I get there...
