If 'c' is a ultimate clock, as fine threaded as you can get, then time is.
The universe we're inside?

Connections and time.

No time, the connections won't be there. Introduce time and change comes. To it add a set of rules as 'c'. A symmetry break.

I think a symmetry break is the best description myself. The 'symmetry' being whatever we, and it, came from.

A different set of rules.

Or if one like, a 'mirror' coexisting.

And it is here, but we've just started to explore the rules it follows.

We call it quantum mechanics, and possibly strings and loops.

Quantum mechanics has the advantage of being test able practically, strings and loops becomes a extreme lot more difficult to test practically.

We are hampered by time though, it is a tool we use that fits our universe, but it probably won't fit the other side of that mirror, not if time is what makes the symmetry break possible.

you need the right set of tools to work, the wrong set will put you at a disadvantage.

That doesn't state that time is a illusion. It's as real as can be for us, and everything else, inside this universe.

We describe things locally. All our standards come to be locally. Local measurements compared and agreed on becomes 'universal standards'. The universes origin is also local.

The universe consist of connections and rules, in time.

For a physicist the word 'local' has two meanings. One is the surface in where it seems obvious that local measurements compared is what gives us this common base, a 'standard' to go out from. The other definition is the one Einstein introduced, of what was 'local'.

Time for example, is a very local phenomena. Locally defined, by your wristwatch, it won't matter what 'speed' you define to yourself relative something else, or what mass you are on. You will age just the same locally measured. That's a general definition, that become arguable as you go down in scale, comparing for example different molecules with different 'relative speeds' and mass, but as also, in the end, will prove to be true again. Time is locally defined of a same pace, for us all.

So, what is this 'universe', and those 'universal standards' we think us see.
Constants.

Indeterminacy, so alike 'free will'.
The rest is history.

I don't believe in a universe bifurcating. The logic extremely fast becomes impossibly convoluted. It's not simple and I like simple. I like the ideas of it all coexisting instead, and then allow rules and connections defining what we see 'inside'. It does something different than 'dimensions' if it is logic and rules. It allow all 'universes' to coexist, none excluded, but also impossible to reach. It's the rules that define your sight.

It makes us all right, doesn't it :)
Those that calls time a illusion.
Those that tells you that the universe is finite.

etc etc etc.

It's a opening, and your imagination will be what limit it.
In itself I don't expect limitations, as long as it hangs together logically.

a weird origin, but it's yours.

What defines a universe is logic, and constants.

A magic universe on the other tentacle?
Who needs it, when you have this?

A magic universe is one in where entropy becomes a laughingstock. Where time is a free choice, as anyones birth, nothing is defined.
