    How are day and night not perceptible? How are the changing seasons not perceptible? We couldn't count them if we couldn't perceive them.

    How is lifting a rock not perceptible? You can feel the force in your back and in your hands. You can even compare the amount of force required to move different rocks.

    What do you think perception means?

    Ok. Time as the periodical becoming is perceptible, but duration isn't.

    We perceive the effort to lift the rock up, but not force.

    Sure it is. We can perceive the difference between one day and two days, can't we?

    What do you think the difference is between effort and force?

    We just perceive the effects of duration, not duration itself.

    With the effort we use force. We feel the effort, not force.

    What exactly do you hope to achieve with your 'theory' along with it's newly coined words?

    How does 'Philochrony' improve people or the world around us?

    To me it just appears that you make one desperate post after another attempting to explain 'Philochrony' - but you really don't explain why you have gone through such an effort. Even if everything you have posted is 'true' in what way exactly does it further science and/or enhance peoples lives?

    All we ever perceive of anything is the effects. What do you think perception means?

    IMO, cogn
    Cognition from a particular perspective.
    All the terms, functions, and results are fundamentally the same thing, but seen from a different perspective.

    It seems to me that in many of the descriptions we are identifying the same thing, IOW we could place an equal (=) sign between most of the arguments.

    Actually that is not necessarily bad, because viewing a thing or an event from different perspectives allows for greater understanding.

    I have no objection to the introduction of new words to describe something. All the words we use in science did not exist at one time, they were all invented.

    The trick is to come up with a word that most precisely defines the objective perspective.

    Neither do I - but it's usually people who understand the something who make up the new words. We don't need new words for "cow" made up by a guy who doesn't know what a cow is.

    Indeed. Or, that there is already a perfectly good word for cow, called "cow".
