: Could you further explain your, "common sense of time"?

: What do you imply when you contrast the two different : distinctions of time?

: Do you impose that the "common sense" is not relative? : If so, how so?

Common sense of time: we feel the passage of time.

S-T is static; the Minkowski diagram is an attempt to bring back a common sense of time to S-T implications but there are a lot of problems with an animated Minkowski diagram. The many worlds model interpretation of quantum theory gives back a common sense feeling of the passage of time and yet retains all of the aspects of relativity theory and its implications.
