Interesting. I read your entire hypothesis, and whilst I was initialy going to dismiss it, I have given it some thought and I think I know what you're saying. Are you saying that, whilst time appears to flow continually all the time, it is a more accurate understanding to imagine time as purely a static dimension (much like the first three), that we and everything else in our universe travels through, thus creating the illusion of the progression of time?In other words, time has no directionality because it doesn't flow, it is merely a dimension which we continually move through, with the past being time that we already passed through, and the future being time which we are approaching?If this is what you're saying, I think it makes a lot of sense. Would be interested to hear your reply!Edit - If this is the case, our progression through the dimension of time has directionality where time itself does not.
If the theory makes any practical difference please send me next weeks lottery numbers.
Excellent. What do you propose to do about it?
Hmm. Are you sure this hasn't been discussed or accepted before? It seems relatively straight forward and obvious?
Not only is there no arrow of time, the notion of time is, itself, not necessary. Our state of existence is limited to the NOW. The past is history and understanding the future is only as accurate as the physical laws that govern CHANGE. Time dilation is not the manipulation for the passage of time, it is rather the change experienced by matter when subjected to acceleration. Time doesn't change, it's only the physical states we observe changing.Time is a mythical construct........................ethos.
Then... you agree with my analysis from a quantum point of view - which i hope satisfies any philosophical approach?
