Default Re: What is Time?

If time is being, then time cannot exist outside of being and being cannot exist outside of time. Since we are able to observe, measure and quantify time and being (as opposed to the highly abstract and sometimes disturbing concept of non-being), they must at least to some degree obey the laws of physics, logic, and rationale-we are pretty sure that clocks won't start running backwards, or that the length of day and night will suddenly cease to change, without some underlying cause, we can predict the direction and the outcome of an event based on specific data. Which means we do not necessarily need the unconscious to comprehend it. Physicists attempt to theorize based on evidence obtained from other logical exercises, experiments or observation. Mathemetics can be applied to real situations, and do not require transcending consciousness to understand.
