Another view of the concept of "time." Dear Friends, I am new to these most interesting forums. I am very pleased to have discovered them. Perhaps I can add a subject that might also be of interest? Some philosophers, theologians and even some scientists seem to feel that "time" is but a figment of human imagination or some similar fabrication. Others suggest that it is only but a manifistation or similar extension of an existing concept, without any truly solid, independent description of its own. I would submit, for your consideration, the contention that "time" is a major factor, if not THE major factor, in our universe. The thesis for this is presented, in some detail (but without the mathematics), for your inspection at: . I haven't given the specific page on that site, in the address noted above, because I also believe you will find the entire site most interesting. However, the page in question is: "The Physical Nature of Time". I hope you will enjoy the experience and will return here will various comments and such. I'm sure that such a discussion will be quite interesting. Most sincerely, Tal D. Noble P.S. I will do my best to find my way back here and join with you in any discussions that might follow.
