    The FQXi Inaugural Essay Contest (Summer 2008):
    “THE NATURE OF TIME”
    I already got my part written … It could be fixed up and re-titled.
    “Did the Clock Tick?”

    I have just posted in my blog “Did the Clock Tick?” https://www.physicsforums.com/blog.php?b=271 10,000 words.
    It looks like I will need help to condense this to meet the guide lines.

    “Essays must be submitted as PDF documents. The length must exceed neither 5000 words of text, nor 10 pages, including figures and references. Color figures as well as hyperlinks within the document are acceptable. Although FQXi will accept works from anyone anywhere, the essay must be submitted in English.”
    -------
    You could help and add a part to this essay by looking at the impact on LAMBDA, and other constants if the dimensions of our universe were greater or less than now.
    -----------
    If we won a prize, I would use my part to pay for a “Physicsforum Upgrade”.
