    'deltaTime' represents the time in seconds it took to complete the last frame. It's useful for smooth object motion or time-related calculations, reflecting real-world time more than game time.

      function self:Update()
        print("This frame took " .. Time.deltaTime .. " seconds")
      end
    

    'fixedDeltaTime' signifies the time in seconds between physics updates (FixedUpdate calls). It's consistent between frames, crucial for physics calculations requiring stable performance.

      function self:FixedUpdate()
        print("This physics step took " .. Time.fixedDeltaTime .. " seconds and will always take that long, unless manually changed")
      end
