Time, Our Limited Perspectives

When I think of time, I feel my limits of perspective. How can I understand ‘time’ before the universe was formed? Time must have existed before the material universe. If not, no change would have occurred. For us, time can be recognized only through changes. Of course, time exists even if we can’t recognise it. I believe that time doesn’t have a beginning, otherwise, time wouldn’t exist.

Even if we can’t figure out the beginning of time, we don’t deny this concept, our life is largely influenced by it.

Is there something else which we don’t understand the start of that exists? I believe God’s existence is also similar to the existence of time. God is the alpha and omega, no beginning and no end, but he has a huge influence on our life.

I know some want to say, humans made gods. I don’t want to talk about that now. I would just like to say that our perspectives do have limits.
