First we have the future, it then becomes the pesent
and then becomes the past. Is it possible to measure
how quickly this is happening?

Is it possible to measure how quickly this is happening?

What units? Seconds per second? Hours per hour? Years per year?

One.

Hum,
possibly 1043, or even as many as 1080 `now events`

One second is defined as the time that elapses during 9,192,631,770 cycles of the radiation produced by the transition between two levels of the cesium 133 atom. So, if your "event" is the transition, then you have 9,192,6731,770 of them per second.
