They are not related. Time in science is a parameter like space. However, unlike all positions in space that exist simultaneously, all instances of time don’t. So, there is some fundamental distinction between space and time, and modern science does not account for this distinction. Therefore, time “dimension” is treated just like space “dimension” in the theories. But practically people use everyday notions about time thinking that this time somehow moves forward. The reason it moves forward has no explanation, and is called the “arrow of time”.
