What if time wasn't just back and forth linear time but also side by side time? Is there a name for this?
Well, it's only possible if you consider time to be a separate dimension apart from spacetime or if you consider time as a dimension itself.

Now, I don't know if time travels back. Of course, the books and movies have the topic of time travel. But, as you know, we haven't yet invented a time machine and I wonder if it's even possible. :)

Now, let's come to my first assumption, i.e. considering time to be a separate dimension apart from spacetime. One of the two main pillars of modern-day Physics is Sir Albert Einstein's Relativity theories. That is, General Theory of Relativity and Special Theory of Relativity. GR (General Relativity) says that time is a dimension which has mixed with space to form spacetime. Like, sugar or salt dissolved in water. General Relativity says that the flow of time depends upon the object and it is malleable and relative. Now, time cannot function independently. Time is mixed with space, none of them will function without the other. No time, no space. No space, no time. Even if they exist, without each other, they can't function. So, each of them is useless without the other.

Now, let's come to my second assumption, i.e. considering time to be a dimension itself. You may wonder now, what's the difference between the two assumptions? The difference is the pillar. Yes, the pillar. This assumption resolves around the second pillar of modern Physics, Quantum Mechanics. Quantum Mechanics (QM) and Relativity don't fully agree with each other, but still, (I am not here to debate which is correct and which is not :) ) both should be counted if you want to answer that question by not just laughing it off. Now, as far as I know (I don't much and maybe I am wrong), QM says that time is universal and absolute, but GR says that time is relative and malleable. QM says that time is the same everywhere, but this is a direct violation of GR and vice versa. QM doesn't actually consider time as a dimension doesn't exist.

And also, you know, there are three main dimensions of space, latitude, longitude and altitude. Like, a line is one-dimensional. You can consider it to be either latitude or longitude or altitude. But, the moment you make a square out of the line, it turns two-dimensional. And, it has to be either latitude-longitude or altitude-latitude or longitude-altitude. And when you make a cube out of the square, it turns three-dimensional. It has to be latitude-longitude-altitude. So, you may think what's the relation of your question to this and why am I blabbering so many things? (Well, to be honest, I myself am also thinking that. LOL.) So, you see that each of the Space dimensions happen to linear. Or, if generalized, each dimension to be linear. Otherwise, the dimension is not one but many. Therefore, if you consider time to be one dimension, it's always got to be either back-and-forth or right-and-left or up-and-down. And, I don't think we feel time to be going sideways.

Therefore, my final conclusion is that, if time is one dimensional (if time is even a dimension), then it's impossible and implausible for time to be anything but linear. And, I think the Physicists are already sinking in the whirlpool of questions regarding time and, if I say that time is not one dimension, they will literally go mad...

Thank you for putting in so much TIME and effort into answering me. Ha

FYI, since the BB event (said to be 13.8 billion years ago), time elapsed in seconds =
4.351968E+17​

How many seconds elapsed using *side by side time*?

I don't know if there is a name for that But I do know that time runs backwards and forwards And in all different directions in this present dimension

I have a theory that spatial Dimensions have eight sides to it or time can exit to and I think they opened time-warp somehow because some people I've asked our hearing voices and they're having conversations but they can't see the person and they are from one of the parallel universes. How do you feel about that theory?

I've had that same idea That it could be persons from other places Because how else could they be communicating with them But also because they say side dimensions possibly exist And I think that these could possibly be the fractals That constantly appear in mathematical equations That sometimes seem to branch off onto into different directions (and keep going for some reason) And the person's doing these high level maths Can't understand why But they think it has to be something having to do with nature And that they must be representing something that we just haven't discovered yet ??? And that it could be those other universes , world's , and or dimensions Where these other people could be But that just my guess Cause that's what the science in the math , seems to say (indicate)

Space-times 4th dimension is measured with a clock. It can go faster or slower but not backwards. (kcit kcot)
Space = physical reality, time = concept. Thus, there is no such physical entity as space-time, and time is not the 4th dimension. We can move in 3 dimensions, so travelling in any of them we "produce" time.
