Summary/Abstract: People sense the time flow in two possible ways. One possible way is the changes in nature (seasons, weather). It can be divided into small equally measured and degradable pieces – years into months, months into weeks, weeks into days, days into hours, etc. This is the so-called atomic time. Another, more mental rather than physical change is the happening of an important event. The last one is responsible for the existence of history, although it actually lacks a solid substance to be measured in detail.
