Misinformational Time Of The Signs: ‘Time is a hallucination purveyed by the inventors of space’. - A (popularly deluded)
bumpersticker mentality. Actually: terrestrial time standards are based on astronomical motions of the planet(s) around the sun. A
planetary year equals its completion of a 360 degree arc - round trip - about the sun (Which, itself is bound toward Vega). A month of 30
days is 1/12th of a year. A week is 1/4th of that month. A day is 1/7th of that week. An hour is 1/24th of a day. A minute is 1/60th of an
hour. A second is 1/60th of a minute. Therefore, a second of time, for example is also 18 1/2 miles of space: traveled by the earth in its
annual orbit around the sun. Sums up the bumper-stickered, satanistically inspired hal-lucination . It’s about time. Non-Absolute
Relativistic 4-D space-time. What it is: Time, furthermore, in 4 dimensions, is shorter and faster in smaller, past (microcosmic) spaces,
and slower (‘dilated’) in future (macrocosmic) larg-er spaces; when compared to ‘present time’ at any given moment of an observer in
the ‘eternal present’: exactly between small ‘fast’ space and large ‘slow’ space. A square mile is not the same spatial size, when
compared with itself; from the present: relative to (smaller, more dense) past or (larger, less dense) future 4-D expanding space. Neither
therefore is 60 miles per hour (or 186,282 m.p.s.) always the same speed. Or a year, month, week, day, hour - or a second, always the
same comparative dura-tion. Proving that the value of time varies with the value of space it occurs in. Refer relativistic ‘time dilation’.
‘Slow time’ occuring in relatively larger spaces; ‘fast time’ occurring in relatively smaller spaces. The relativity of time values. For which,
until here and now, there are not even any failed explanations. Of course, in a 4-D universe, the value of ‘time and space’ (4-D
space-time) quite inevitably varies, from coordinate system to coor-dinate system. The speed of light for example, is ever-increasing,
while remaining constant, relative to the coordinate system in which it ori-ginates and from which it is measured. The value of time being
covariant with the smaller and larger - earlier and later - 4-D space-times it occurs and/or is measured - in. Fact #10. Are You Seated
Comfortably? "Now, to close with two brief considerations. About every six months or so the world press and scientific journals at large
will re-port on the activities of physicists attempting to discover and isolate gravity waves. And yet, like the 4th Dimension, the only
appropriate question is, 'Where are they not?'. Yet still, Contemporary Physics and its mentors continue to brush aside electromagnetism
(in the micro and macrocosms) in search of gravity waves. JumbleMumble, follows:
