I am talking with a philosopher about time, he wanted to know how physicists describe time, I tried to describe it as best I could (without using mathematics) and he posted the following in response; I am sort of a diehard when it comes to explaining things. "I think fractals are representations of and actual occurrences of that which is infinite in its ability to repeat itself as they say history does but repeating itself on a larger or smaller scale in reference to mans evolutionary advances if any, we will be able to overcome those repeated mistakes and by so doing change time in the present so actually we are in the past in a way now changing it to meet our needs in the future. Our bodies are like time machines for without them we could not proceed to fix things in the present. So we are time travelers in that sense. Everything you see in creation is in the process of change which in itself indicates a certain amount of time(that used by man) to determine its rate of change. For example a flower blooming takes so much time however the time it takes depends on what part of the flowers development you are measuring I think.Everything takes time. Time is the universal energy in which all things happen.Without that which we call TIME nothing would happen and even that indicates an action.We should call it somthing else as their are different levels and calibrations in regards to the infinite amount of space to do things in.Lets call it WOOO as possibly an alien would." I am having great difficulty understanding what he is trying to say.
