Einstein did the heavy lifting for you. After seven years, he came up with E=MC2. Energy equals Matter squared by Light. I would explain it to you, but I have to understand it first. In his Second Theory of Relativity, he postulated that the faster you travel, the slower time will go, meaning you could return to Earth younger than when you left.

Obviously, I'll leave it up to you to join the dots, but I think time could indeed have a weight. I look forward to reading a paper on this...

Further: Weight is a aspect of gravity but gravity doesn't actually exist. The mass of (large) objects bends space-time to make it appear so. It's why a plan can fly in a straight line at 35,000 feet, yet circle the earth instead of heading out into space. So time has no weight but it's an aspect of it.

Physicists have been pondering this quagmire for a century, and they’re no closer to the truth than when Einstein first challenged our notions about time.

Which lead me back to philosophy 101 and Descartes.

It's not so difficult to understand. It simply states an equivalency. Basically matter/energy, they're just different forms of the same thing. Sort of like water and steam.

The equation itself just tells what the conversion rate is. The amount of a E(nergy) contained in any quantity of matter = it's m(ass) multiplied by the (c2) the speed of light squared.

c2 provides a constant. c is equal to 186000 miles per second. Square that and it's 34,596,000,000 miles per second. (In kilometers that's 55,353,600,000 per second).

This is why they use various plutonium and uranium isotopes for the big booms. Greater mass = bigger explosions.

As far as time? My personal view is that it's merely an abstraction which allows the human mind to organize the world in a linear fashion because that's the way it works.

In reality everything is happening at the same time. It's only once it's observed that it has to be measured or quantified. (thing Schroedinger's cat).

As far as having "weight" I'm not sure it does, why it would, or what useful purpose it would serve if it did.

Lists, chronicles, narratives and other symbolic acts are ways that we attempt to give (what we perceive as) time weight and meaning that we hope will be mutually intelligible.
