to:

* Not confirmed but it's a possibility. However, this is a fictional world. Fictional means anything can happen and in this film's case, aliens are not involved. They just decided to replace physical money with time as currency. Nothing more than that.




to:

* Nothing to do with each other. Jossed.




to:

* Jossed. Nothing to do with South Park. Reliable sources pointed that the plot of the film is based on the novel "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman".




to:

* Not necessarily. If made by young people, they are still alive and common sense exists. They can still die by normal means as proven by Will who killed the bad guys. While they would stop aging, that does not mean they cannot be killed physically.

Proletarians hate money. They believe the only material possession should be manual labour, anyone who has money or focuses on material possessions is classified as a ''Class Traitor''. Therefore In Time is set in a universe where only humans work and few robots. The minutes are how many minutes they worked for. And also classifies Hours and Days and Years. The death clock being an incentive to work for. As in, ''if you don't work you will die''. Will and Sylvia are therefore ''Class Traitors'' because they robbed Sylvia's father's time banks.

Considering the current technology level. I'm thinking that at some point in an alternate history, aliens came down (for whatever reason) and infected everyone with this condition. Society adapted around this and even found a way to artificially transfer time between devices. Maybe it just works like bitcoin, and people found a way to "mine" for more time? It is also possible that there is a class lower than those seen in the movie. This class is simply slaves which are bread and raised in cages, producing children as young as possible. When they hit 25, all their time is siphoned off and they are killed.

Thing is, if time equals money, how do you opt out of the system without starving or being arrested for tax-dodging? And what if the system (as seems to be implied by the Time Zones?) is ingrained by law? Maybe they (the purported sect) could treat the timers as the Mark of the Beast- which according to the book of Revelation, "no-one can buy or sell without it"- and live right on the very edges of society?
