Hi Maxila. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Again I am sorely pressed for time, so I must be brief.... As far as the concept of 'duration' is concerned, I try to point out that it is only a philosophical 'continuity of existence' thinking about before and after etc. Purely abstract, not physically dependent on any particular universes/peoples' 'time/timing' processes/rates. The only 'connection' that can be made (by us, abstractly) between the two concepts, time and duration, is when we actually apply observed dynamical states/rates etc and compare same such that we effectively are 'parsing' some 'continuous existence duration' into SEGMENTS of specifics associated with specific rate/comparisons which we call 'time/timing'. That's all, really. The sense of duration 'exists' in our consciousness irrespective of change/process, even in their absence (this 'gedanken' situation is purely philosophical too, since it is debatable that we could think about anything at all in the absence of all motion/state change!). That's all I have time for today, Maxila, everyone. Good luck and good thinking! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
