Abstract: The time we experience is a complex reality formed by a number of different layers. Some of these are anchored in fundamental physics, others depend on approximations such as neglecting relativistic or quantum effects, others rely on the thermodynamical disregard of microphysics, many depend on the specific structure of our brain, based on memory and expectations.  Disentangling the layers is essential, to avoid the common mistake of trying to understand aspects of temporality at the wrong layer, namely with the wrong science.
