The conceptualization of the definition of time is best guided by the theories of relativity and quantum physics in scholarly debates. Thus, before getting to the nature of time itself, special relativity claims must first be made to settle current issues related to causality, and then address time subsequently, now on a leveled playing field. Looking at physical reality through the eyes lens of causality gives a version of reality that we are experiencing. This suggests that the causality principle is the constraint on all physical theory. As the construction of string theory emerges as the reigning theory for quantum gravity, a precise picture of causal reality can be accounted for through theories such as Dyson's Chronological Protection Agency, Hořava's theory of gravity, and new... insight to how simultaneity is interpreted in relativity theory. With this model, the question about time in the philosophical debates can now be clearly defined through the Presentists' view of the universe.
