Best answer: Time IS movement of matter---indeed a constant INHERENT movement of matter at c / square root of 2 in the direction of the 4th dimension. even when objects are still, time still flows as the motion vectors are the same, like two cars matching speed on a highway. Motion occurs in our frame of reference when the 4D vectors of the other particle or object differ.----Like when one of the cars veers off to the side and the drivers can then sense RELATIVE motion of a few mph while the highway speed may be 60 mph, for example.---of course the greater the angle of veer., the greater the relative speed.---and since there is no highway speed change the other car will appear to DROP BACK a bit on the highway.
Thus in our 3D universe motion is relative based on difference of "Veer angle" of the 4D time motion vector. All motion we see is RELATIVE slower motion, while time motion moves at a good portion of light speed. the greater the vector angle, the greater the apparent relative speed and the more BACK in time the moving objects slips relative to the other. (Time dilation) at () degrees the relative speed maxes out--we call it "light speed" (c) time for it stops relative to us as we speed away from it.---beyond 90degrees of veer it drops out of our frame of reference as it is going backwards in time relative to us.
Gravity is also tied to time. Gravity is the inertia we feel from this 4D motion as we travel around CURVED space around a massive object. It feels like we are being drawn inwards to it
Don't worry about Paradoxes in backwards time travel----Paradoxes do not happen.--Its like an electric switch relay wired into itself via the Normally close terminal, to turn off when the coil is activated. To ask what happens when the normally open terminal is closed, is nonsensical. You can't cut your own timeline or do ANYTHING that would affect your existence or even the timing of embarkation of your time adventure. As the switch cuts off its own power to draw the throw bar down and lacks the energy to do so, YOU would lack the energy to carry out a time line cutting action. It would seem that a mysterious force were holding you back from some actions---But not really a force, but a lack of it. You could not pull the trigger to kill your grandfather while the gun was pointed at him---because you would not exist if you did, so you can pull it only so far, but not enough.--Aim in a different direction, though and the gun will work fine.
Time travel---perhaps this movement is simply a switching from one parallel universe to another each representing a specific instant in time. These parallel universes may be at different "frequencies" like different radio stations--after all Matter is ultimately waves anyway. Changing wave attributes of matter would cause you to move from one universe or time instant to another. Ift hese wave attributes could be identified and a way to change them developed, then you can time travel by simply changing the wave attributes of your body's particles to match the "frequency" of one of these parallel universes that represents an instant of time in the past, say in 1950, and you would become a part of THAT universe---and Back in time.
