  1. Shadow: I also agree that I could never get everything about time in one book, but as dob said, I can get enough in there to pique the interest of others. VERTIGO: That was a pretty good start, certaintly gets one thinking. As of right now I have recieved/studied over 15 different theories/views on time, each one in and of itself quite interesting. Some appeal more to the masses as exciting, hard to explain, almost sci-fi like, theories while others appeal more to the intellectual as strictly scientific in all of its breadth, and then there are, of course, those in the middle - those that combine elements of both. I hope to condense what I discover into 3-5 main views and give enough on each to encourage the reader to do research of the topic on their own, to provide mathematics and scientific principles, but not so many as to make uninteresting or cumbersome to the common reader (like A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking).

  2. Thanks, those site were both helpful - they fit in with my theme, how different religions, and/or worldviews, view time. Prophet
  3. I am altogether not sure of exactly what I believe as far as time travel. I liked Borgus' 5 ideas, and similarly hold to all of them (although lately I have been leaning more towards the first). I work in law/government, computers, food service, sports, and study (and debate) logic, philosophy and physics/metaphysics on the side. Prophet
  4. Time02112: thanks for the link, I did find some very interesting and insightful information. Shadow: could you further explain your mind/matter concept for me? And yes, I anticipate that the book will be quite long! Prophet
  5. I am writing a book on time, what it is, and how it works. I am looking for the opinions of some of others. So if you don't mind answering those two questions - you can get as detailed as you like - I would be grateful. Prophet
  6. DrMises: Is your name in honor of Ludwig von Mises?
  7. Well, I must say this thread has piqued my interest. I have a few questions for TT_0: First, where does your interest in the (our) U.S. Constitution stem from? Why do you think it is so vital for us to read and understand it? Second, do you not like your "new" Constitution? Or feel that it is not as effective as the original? Third, you keep saying that you will be going back to your worldline soon, how soon will this be? Can you give a specific day? Or week? I have many questions for you and would like to be able to know how much time I have left to ask them of you. rgrunt: Could you please space out your posts to make it easier to read - it is very difficult to read a post that is in one large block of words compared to one that has each thought, or idea, seperated by spaces.
