Hi Bruce

"Whats cosmological decay?"
As you probably know, some of our
science fiction authors were scientist wannabees
while some are strong in career sciences.
Science fiction authors sometimes anticipate
discoveries of science, even if the "batting average" is not high.
The idea that entropy works at the levels of
atom, molecule, geologic (or does it) and
of living systems, and that the earth's rotation is slowing down, stars burn out...
seems to imply there may be a decay pattern,
as yet undiscovered, which could provide a more
universal time than atomic decay time, and solar system time.

Response: Nice bold assertion which might or might not prove to be true. I agree absolute
time is not as important as toilet paper, but
neither are several other nice items.

Sure and I love the statement about Einstein. I have read fairly extensively about Einstein etc. and quoted him in this forum, ya know? I don't support the deconstruction of Einstein either...
any more than I would support the deconstruction of the concept of "trees." Relativity is awesome
and I don't think it will ever go away or become

Thanks, Bruce!
