Re: How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

Do you have any examples of these supposed "different states of affairs"? Like two positions of a billiard ball on a table. The ball in the first position on the table is the first state of affair and the ball in the second position is the second state of affair. Besides the fact that there is ONLY...

Re: How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

WHY? Because two states of affair related to a change cannot lay on one point and because any change has a duration. What does 'two states of affair' actually mean? What 'affair' are you talking about? Two states of affair like a billiard ball in two positions. Until it is explained HOW there can b...

Re: How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

Timely time is negative time, according to the rule of double positives. What do you mean with this statement? What are negative time and timely time? There is no time in the past, only memories. True. There is no time in the future, only hopes, guesses and expectations. True. Time is only now. It ...

Re: Do you experience time when there is no change?

Do you experience time when there is no change? There is no time when you do not experience change. Your blood moves oxygen around the body with the beating of the heart, else you are dead. In a sense, no time is experienced if you are dead. But I am given to understand that the death of one person...

Re: Do you experience time when there is no change?

You can KEEP INSISTING 'time' is some actually thing BUT if you NEVER tell us what that thing actually IS, then REALLY what are you saying exactly? Time is a fundamental entity with the following properties: It exists at an infinitesimal interval so-called now, It changes, it allows change to occur...

Re: Do you experience time when there is no change?

So in the question of which came first, the chicken or the egg: the chicken with an egg inside of it is false? Time has to exist in order to allow that change to happen, nothing to something. So nothing then something. If there is nothing then there is something, it is instantaneous. It takes infin...

Re: Do you experience time when there is no change?

IF 'time' is some 'entity', which allows some thing to occur, then what IS that 'entity' exactly? Time is elementary. It simply exists such as other elementary things. You can KEEP INSISTING 'time' is some actually thing BUT if you NEVER tell us what that thing actually IS, then REALLY what are you...

Re: How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

Time is simply the measurement of change or motion between states No. Time is an entity that allows change or motion. Change is different from motion. Change refers to two different states of affairs that one comes after another. Motion is the process of reaching from one state of affair to another...

Re: How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

I see time as merely change. That we only exist on the leading edge of change, does not negate the truth of our past gradual changes, it has been written, if no where else in our own minds and history books. Change only happens now. Time is an arbitrary measurement of the sequence of change from th...

Re: Do you experience time when there is no change?

surreptitious57, Age, bahman & gaffo, You’ve contributed a number of interesting remarks to the discussion about time. To my way of thinking, time is imaginary. Time is a construct created by humans in order to comprehend change. I say this because there’s no reason that more than one change can’t ...
