Unix timestamp began 1.1.1970. It indicates the number of seconds that have elapsed since that time.
UNIX time does not count leap seconds. In normal time, leap seconds keep the current time synchronous rotation of the earth. This makes is proportional to the time of normal use everyday.
Use the command "date +% s" get current Unix time.
