 Time (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Other issues concerning the topology of time include (i) whether time is branching or non-branching, (ii) whether time is open or closed, (iii) whether there can be two or more disconnected time streams, (iv) whether time has an intrinsic direction, and (v) whether time is dense or continuous or neither.
The question of whether there could be time without change has been debated by philosophers since the days of Plato and Aristotle, and has traditionally been thought to be closely tied to the question of whether time exists independently of the events that occur in time.
On this view, time is like an empty container into which events may be placed; but it is a container that exists independently of whether or not anything is placed in it.

 Z-Time - by Harold F. Maybeck
When he came to the International Date Line at 180° longitude, realizing that although the time was the same in each 7.5° segment each side of 180° longitude...they were different days.
The first zone centered on 15° West longitude became time zone "N", the next time zone west centered on 30° West longitude became time zone "O", etc, etc. Approaching the International Date Line from the east, Bowditch designated the remaining "half zone" from 172.5° West longitude to 180° longitude as time zone "Y".
This notation, "Z", is appended to times on most navigational, meteorological, and astronomical charts today to indicate that the time of the chart is in "Greenwich Mean Time".
