Description

If time is described by a fundamental process rather than a coordinate, it interacts with any physical system that evolves in time. The resulting dynamics has recently been shown to be consistent provided the fundamental period of the time system is sufficiently small. A strong upper bound T_C < 10^{-33}s of the fundamental period of time, several orders of magnitude below any direct time measurement, can be obtained from bounds on dynamical variations of the period of a lab system evolving in time. Possible cosmological implications will be discussed.
