Hypothetically the "clock speed" of the universe may be Planck Time. You might visualize then the universe existing in a frozen state, then a Planck Time unit ticks, and the universe is in a very slightly different state (e.g. at the quantum level). This repeats continuously. In this sense, time is merely a measurement of change. If nothing changed, there would be no time. Our minds cannot perceive such rapid clock ticks. It is rather like the illusion of motion when watching a film, which is actually a sequence of still pictures that we perceive as a continuous flow.

Some interesting speculations. In principle, if the universal "clock" was paused, within the universe no time would pass. If there is an intelligence external to the universe that experiences its own time, the universe would appear to be in a frozen state. If this intelligence external to the universe had control of the universe, and the ability to "store" previous states rather like a database backup, this intelligence could "restore" the universe to a previous state. We, in this universe, would have no way of detecting this, because our minds would also be restored to this previous state.
