Two contrasting viewpoints on time divide many prominent philosophers. One view is that time is part of the fundamental structure of the universe, a dimension in which events occur in sequence. Sir Isaac Newton subscribed to this realist view, and hence it is sometimes referred to as Newtonian time.Time travel, in this view, becomes a possibility as other “times” persist like frames of a film strip, spread out across the time line. The opposing view is that time does not refer to any kind of “container” that events and objects “move through”, nor to any entity that “flows”, but that it is instead part of a fundamental intellectual structure (together with space and number) within which humans sequence and compare events (such as, change of conditions within an ever-present, allowing an endless ‘succession’ of changes). This second view, in the tradition of Gottfried Leibniz9 and Immanuel Kant, holds that time is neither an event nor a thing, and thus is not itself measurable nor can it be travelled.

Ray Cummings, an early writer of science fiction, wrote in 1922, “Time… is what keeps everything from happening at once”, a sentence repeated by scientists such as C. J. Overbeck, and John Archibald Wheeler.

    Very neat work! Kind of sci-fi (although I know it is based on known theories and ideas) and quite fantasy like. It is also neat in the sense that at a single point in time we experience one thing and here you depict some things happening simultaneously; like hot and cold. And of course the symbols (e.g. the clock and Mr. Newton) are very relevant.

  • I AM SO PLEASED THIS ONE HAS BEEN ENGAGING FOR YOU!! AND THAT YOU HAVE SEEN SO MANY THINGS AND IDEAS FROM IT!!…THAT IS A HUGE COMPLIMENT!…
    THANX EVER SO MUCH MUI-LING…;-D

    Then there is the other theory, based on Relativity that time and space are really One – so past, present, future all exist concurrently within the matrix of the Multiverse (along with all the other possibilities). What I’ve noticed is, that physicists just can’t agree! lol Head-stretching stuff! Hope you’ll add this to the Sci Fi Group as well! Fantastic work, Tammera!

  • THIS IS TRUE…AND WE MAY NEVER KNOW …
    THANX SO KINDLY FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND APPRECITAION OF MY WORK HON!!…;-D
