Thank you very much for inviting me to review this paper. The Mpemba phenomenon is one of the wonders of physics that has long been unsolved. In this paper, the author puts forward a new idea that "time is the flow of energy". On the basis of the author's previous work on "ether - space energy", this paper gives a new interpretation of mpemba phenomenon. The authors' findings provide a complete framework for explaining claims in special relativity, general relativity and thermodynamics about the relationship between energy flow and time. Overall it is a very good job and I must congratulate the author!

But there's another thing we might want to consider. In Mpemba, hot milk freezes much faster than cold milk, meaning that a slight difference in energy makes a significant difference in time. But in special relativity, keeping a previously stationary object moving at high speed requires a lot of energy to make a significant difference in the speed at which time passes. In general relativity, the situation is very similar, requiring a very strong gravitational field to produce a significant difference in time -- there is obviously no such difference between the Earth and the sun.
