Science has been sticking to that view since around Newton. But it's actually beginning to slowly change now, as time-independent physics might be a reason why our theories work very well in specific areas, but tend to break down in a more holistic approach.

See the work of physicist Lee Smolin in Time Reborn (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Time-Reborn-Crisis-Physics-Universe...) on why time and information might be the most fundamental concepts.

This does not mean though that we experience time in the same way - far from it. Just that passage of time is fundamental to information processing.




Thanks for the recommendation. Indeed information is the most fundamental concept and mutations. If you will call time a causality force which makes this mutations it's fine. But it's wrong if you think about time as a dimension in which you can travel.
