Time is a measurement.

Brant,

A measurement of what?

And what is the standard?

Itself, that does not exist?

:) 

I know I can measure time based on my growth, for an easy example. Is it your position that only the opposite is true, that growth does not happen over  time and that one cannot measure time because time is measurement itself?

:) 

I hold space and time to be corollaries of the axiomatic concepts, especially existence and identity.

I cannot imagine existence without space and time being a part of it, nor can I imagine an existent having a specific identity without that identity existing within space and time.

The rest is nothing but ghosts.

Brant,

I can do a million of them, but just one more for now.

Does time measure the motion of consciousness?

If that is true, how does consciousness move?

:evil:

Obviously I've given you too much to digest in too short a period of time.

In a day or so you'll suddenly realise I'm right. The same will happen for me.

I think it's called cross referencing

Brant,

Ha!

:) 

I'll try to make time for it.

Er... 

I mean... I'll try to measure something with time to make er... make er... make... I mean...

I'll try to measure something with time to make something measured with time for it.

Consciousness can move in a boat, car, airplane . . .

Brant,

Close, but no cigar.

When we measure consciousness, we don't measure vehicle paths.

:) 

Try it:

Q: How aware are you today?
A: 500 miles by speeding car, meaning 5 hours.

Does that make any sense?

:)
