Alex,

>>>"Did you notice little "i" there telling that time is DIFFERENT than space coordinate?"/i>

(2) We might want to ask ourselves what we mean when we refer to space-time, or space, or the universe, (or whatever). I think it's fair to define the universe as interactions of matter. Mass & energy, interacting on micro & macro scales.

(3) Thus, all intervals of space-time are products of matter.

(4) Therefore, all intervals of space-time, no matter how infinitesimal, would be a priori uncertain; that is to say, every interval of 'reality' is restricted from existing purely as a position.

(5) We are forced to conclude that, if matter cannot exist wholly in position, and therefore space-time intervals cannot exist wholly in position, then the foundations of the universe include more than the system of coordinates we use to establish position.

Time is real.
