Time is a vector space in itself, a single dimensional vector space. In mathematics, we read that the intersection of any two or more vector spaces is a vector space in itself, each vector space consists of each and every possible linear combination of its basis. This means that zero (the origin) is present in every vector space, and is a vector space in itself.
