I would like to know Bruce's thoughts on this paper from the University of Moscow that proposes a new concept of time within General Relativity.

The G&S forum has had long discussions on the concept of time, and I so I think it is appropriate to provide a link to this paper here.

Time and Energy in Gravity Theory
Authors: Ivanhoe B. Pestov
Comments: 22 pages, LATEX, no figures
A new concept of internal time (viewed as a scalar temporal field) is introduced which allows one to solve the energy problem in General Relativity. The law of energy conservation means that the total energy density of the full system of interacting fields (including gravitational field) does not vary with time, thus being the first integral of the system. It is demonstrated that direct introduction of the temporal field permits to derive the general covariant four dimensional Maxwell equations for the electric and magnetic fields from the equations of electromagnetic fields considering in General Relativity. It means that the fundamental physical laws are in full correspondence with the essence of time. Theory of time presented here predicts the existence of matter outside the time.

The existence of matter outside of time is suggestive of the properties of god.

What do you think?
