    Proper time is not a timerate at all but the appearence of your time from your perspective. If your clock is running slower than anothers you can break the appearence of proper time by a simple comparison. If you are traveling rapidly through space your clock will be running slow. All you have to do is look at something that is not moving as fast through space and you will see it(they) will have a fast clock compared to yours.

    @kalahkid that would be a fine explanation for time perception but not how fast time really is but thank you for trying

    Your perception of the how fast time is passing is dependent on your metabolic rate. Time seems to be accelerating when your metabolic rate increases, and seems to slow down when your metabolic rate decreases. My metabolism is thoroughly screwed up because I've been a type 1 diabetic for more than 56 years and counting. You probably are not going to get a better answer than this one.

    Well to be honest, there is really no way to calculate how fast time is

    Time is a scalar quantity. A rate is a measured quantity as it changes in time, e.g. \(\text{speed}=\dfrac{\text{distance}}{\text{time}}\), where "speed" here refers to the rate of change of distance over some time interval. Using this definition, what we might call "rate of time" would then be \(\dfrac{\text{time}}{\text{time}}=1\).
