Posted:Now look, it says very clearly on the list of forums that this is the Temporary Discussion Area, but there are NO discussions about the nature of time. So i'm making one.

Time confuses me for several reasons
1. you can't poke it with a stick.
2. we all seem to be moving along it at the same speed but...
3. when i try to think about how 'fast' we are moving in time, without reference to time to determine speed, my brain stops working and starts thinking about iced buns instead.
4. did i say several reasons? um...
5. how small does time go till you get to an indivisible elementary particle of time, eh? eh?
6. if the answer to the last one is 'infinitely small' then what sense does 'now' make, eh? eh?
7. is the future already there, or does it get made as it happens?

um yeah.

So anyone want to give me some of their time?
(go on Dom, i've forgotten how your theory that time doesn't exist actually went )

and finally, to fit in with the rest of this Forum, i'd like to blame the USA for its abuse of time and general temporal irresponsibility

Posted:Is the butterfly effect similar to the grandparent paradox?
If the space/time continuum is really just a rubber sheet, then what would happen if i used it like a trampoline?
If there is no tomorrow, which there isnt, cos it hasnt happened yet, and there is no present, because when i say now is the present, then it isnt because the present was after i said now, or something, and there is no past, then.. oh no, ive gone crosseyed.

Posted:*bump*

i like this thread and i'm not willing to see it relegated past page 8, so for twenty points:

how can a few months seem like five minutes ago and yet even longer ago at the same time? Discuss with reference to much silliness. ubbloco
