    Sure. And while we're at it, let's call red 'blue', and up 'down'.
    That won't make communication impossible, will it?

    well, good suggestion, they do that for quarks.
    There is good reason to call time the 1st dimension. true, there was only a Plank length for one of the space stretches, no Plank heights, or Plank depth, not quivelling about the order of the three Dees.
    Before the Plank length of time, during the BB, many believe there was an infinity of the time dimension. like in : "From Eternity to Here" by L. Krauss, see also Dirac's sea.

    just some friendly banter, "connections"; please allow the eggheads some leeway during the holiday.

    could have fooled me.
    I thought it was thread which was a bout the words (greek logos, as in logic) for time and space.
    There is a time and space for everything, what makes you assume this is one for insults? revealing your fine upbringing?

    Thing is, you're making up your own terms, and making up your own definitions for existing terms.

    The common term for it is word salad. And we get a LOT of word salad here.
    Every Tom Dick and Harry who has riffed through a pop-sci book likes to think of themselves an armchair scientist and starts making stuff up. Just like you're doing.
    It gets tiresome after a while. Don't be Tom Dick or Harry.

    I understand, and abstention might be the only cure for tiredness, but
    with due respect, truly scientific papers are a bore to read. artificially using upscale jargon, this is a populest site I assume, and even if an idea could be expressed in an equation, using colourful language touches the soul so to speak. example:

    In another thread someone used the term lifting be the bootstraps to mean a closed system. I countered by using "skyhook" to emphasize my different take. ( energy supplied from outside)
    True, I have introduced terms like "timespace" "energytime" "pipe" (possible infinite primordial energy), and I hope they stick, but I am building here on a solid tradition.
    It is by associating novel ideas with familiar settings that we relate well, and humour or alliteration (bad poetry) are great teaching tools to. so,
    grin and bear it. please.

    This is what is tiring. People serving their own agenda, hoping to "coin" new terms.

    There is a big difference between using anew ides to inspire a new way of thinking and simply creating made up definitions for existing words.

    Anyway, you have every right; I'm simply explaining why you're getting flak.

    with due respect, the spell checker recognizes them as new words, and the terms carry meaning, emphasis,
    new ideas should be associated with novel words, bridging from main to may be.
    Precise words once understood, save time, speed the discourse.
    The gent has an agenda? who has not?

    Nice allegory. perfect sustained metaphor.
    some of my threads are using plenty of "F" words too:
    high Flying Flight of Fancy forgoing Formulae. (see "ALMA" on alternate fringe.)
    flights in war (of words) often cut short by flak
    flak = Flugabwehrkanone.

    time is often associated with a an activity, era, condition, like teatime,
    spacetime (should be called mattertime)
    energytime, (time with energy but with no matter , [yet])
    timespace ( a place for time to exist in, infinitely)
    These are not really synonyms of time, what the OP calls for, but are synchronized* with it, the additive that give it flavour; like flavour of the month.
    * from kronos = time, greek.
