In journalism, we call the profusion of
three syllable words... "fog."

1) Superiors have no license to lavish rude prose about their inferiors.
2) Small words are best and old words when small are best of all. (WC)

3) Luis? wrote: "In my view, time is composed of specific intervals somehow tied to the differential between an object's mass and its motion"

a) Response:
If I remember, mass increases with velocity. Now you can tell me I am stupid. But if I have made an error in elementary physics, that should not disqualify me from the polite company of Luis.
b) There would, in 3) be a layer of "intervals of time" which seem not to have mass or velocity and I have never heard of them being observed.
