of a rational universe versus an irrational universe. Now the rational universe is one that operates according to rules. Previously it seemed to be one that came into existense because of a set of axioms. Universes can have existed forever, with no beginning, always one preceeding the other, and still be operating according to rules.

So what is it. Can time in some sense be infinity in both directions and still operate in universes that have rules? I do not know of a physics theory that disallows that. I hope you do not say that philosophy disallows it.

BTW, it is not rational to change definitions in mid stream. One tends to get wet that way.

PS: I love using one's own words against one. Many thanks.
