So you confirm my suspicion that this is about you - looking for one you like.

OK, so I'm right to step out. I don't need to indulge you in an attempt to 'hold court'.

What part of the No above do you not understand? The N? or the o?

Are you also having problems understanding the remainder?

Anyone can post THEIR definition of TIME - ANYONE

ANYONE is free to meld the answers to provide a complete comprehensive definition of TIME which all those people who state time exist agree on - ANYONE

Obviously my position is incompatible with the time exist position

FROM THE - Does TIME exist? - THREAD THESE TWO POST ARE THE REASON FOR THE -What is time? - THREAD

AND
Perhaps you recognise them?

So do YOU wish to wait for more definitions?

Go with the seven?

Try to mix the seven to get a all inclusive definition?

You suggested the thread, I opened the thread, now you seem angry about something I am at a loss to follow

If he doesn't want to post, Michael345, he doesn't have to.

Perhaps he's satisfied with ALL of the definitions.

Asked if he wanted to wait for more

Asked if he wanted to fit the 7 into 1 comprehensive definition

Time is something unobservable that we came up to define a dimension which were inexplicable but had an important role to play to describe motion. In alien language this time may have different name but describes the same dimension. It can access both scalar and vector quantity but is always linked with motion so in a way time is also a form of energy.

This definition brings total definitions to 8 (which does not include the two TIME does not exist definitions)

Time ends and begins simultaneously in a heap of fire like a great Phoenix... Death began and one day will go to naught... As the universe is bonded with marriage creating fate itself.
