It is a riddle (Posted on 2005-04-13) Difficulty: 1 of 5
It is a riddle.
It is the strongest force,
to resist your force,
and yet it is not a force.
It never accelerates,
but it is always moving.
It never rests, and
it never gets tired.
It has been defined many ways,
but no one can quite capture it.
What is it?

You'll mention that the answer should not be in such a wild imagination.

Now, I ask you a simple question.  When you relate time to the phrase, It never rests and it never gets tired, isn't it a wild imagination.  How could the time be linked up to some kind of human feeling?  It is illogical and not practical.

In this point of view, I oppose the solution since it too involves some kind of imagination that has been mentioned to me previously is disallowed in the question's point of view.

Thanks.
