Do you see time as a series of discrete events, a line through infinite perceptions or something else?

I see it as a dimension.

OhOh trippy question...
I see time as a period of events. A time line if you will

Time is a pretty interesting dimension.

By the Plank model (as i understand it anyway, i am by no means an expert), Time is a ray. It starts at zero and goes on presumably into infinity. So to say "What happened before zero Plank time?" Is equivalent to asking "What is north of the north pole?"

I see time as a barier. It stops us from being at 2 places at the exact same time, and prevents ventures into the past. It keeps things moving forward. I also think that this barrier is a purple-ish color (don't ask why.)

I haven't been able to understand any beleifs on this other than the ray one.
Anybody care to enlighten me? And the purple barrier thing seems kind of interesting. Want to flesh it out?

Shhhhhhh. It's related to politics in the same way that it's Santa Clause that gives me gifts every year. You just have to beleive.

I just think purple is the most time-ish color. But seriously, I don't think time is really something entirely visible on a color spectrum. If anything I belive this barrier is made out of an unseen and undiscovered element. I also believe other dimensions are really just different types of matter that are not visible to us.

Time is nothing but a dimension. Which one? I don't know. But in the book Flatland, there is an interesting tidbit on the Time Dimension. If time is the 4th dimension, then a 4th dimensional being would have the power to manipulate the flow of time...

I think time would, more likely, be the plane in which the other three dimensions are set. Sorta like a tunnel. But that's just me.

Thats feasable. But then we have moles, who can manipulate the dirt around the tunel, so the possibility of time manipulative beings still exists...

If time really is a dimension, then why can we not travel through it?

We are 3 dimentional beings. Only a being in the Time Dimension, or a higher dimension, could manipulate time....

DAMN! I think you might have synesthesia. That is, if you percive time in the normal way but ALSO as a color/colors. Googlize it.

The way I see it, the fourth dimension is a continuation of the dimension of SPACE. It has to be. It fits the pattern.
0 dimension: A point. (no height, width, or length) Fits in space.
1st dimension: A line. (made of infinite points) Fits in space.
2nd dimension: A plane. (made of infinite lines) Fits in space.
3rd dimension: Space (made of infinite planes)
4th dimension: ? (made of infinite... spaces)
And the pattern continues. Why should it stop?

The fourth dimention is impossible for us to imagine because we do not exist in it.
Time is a completely different concept. Do not confuse it with space.

Yeah, that sounds about right. I checked it out on Wikipedia. I don't have autism or any other type mental disease (except ADHD, if you think it really exists), so I guess I'm just one of those weird kinds of people who arbitrarily sees colors and what not.

I think time is a hoax, we created it when we got here, but the had to have been something before we got here. So we say time began when we got here. ('we' encompasing.... well, everything) So if we created time, why does it control us? Heck, if i build something, I want to control it, not vice versa. People say time travel is impossible, that's because time isn't real! How can one travel through something that isn't there? I wrote a loooong poem about all this, but I can't seem to find it in my portfolio... If i do, I'll be sure to post it...

Since we can do fourth dimensional (and nth dimensional, for that matter) calculations, it would seem as if time would be a little easier to grasp if it were simply another dimension. Time can be manipulated, it can be slowed down. We can think Einstein for this gem of a discovery. Time is related to speed somehow, since the faster you are going, the less you are affected by time, thus time is not the universal "independant variable" as is so commonly accepted. For all practical purposes, yes, but this is theoretical time. Since time can be manipulated within the 3rd dimension, that also makes it seem to me that it is not, in fact, the fourth dimension. However, why does velocity have an effect on time, what does simply going faster have to do with the progression of time?

Seeing as how there is an inverse relationship between speed and time, is it possible that the two are simply opposites of each other? If so, would that explain a state suspended animation (most practically accomplished through freezing) theoretically allowing a person to advance in time unscathed, seeing as how in a state of suspended animation, a person's molecules are moving substantially slower than normal? It seems like it works both ways, which seems to support the idea that speed and time are opposite values. Of course, there must be a substantially large or small coefficient (depending on which side of the equation it's on), seeing as how you have to be going extremely fast or slow in order to have any effect on time.


Think you're pretty clever...

It relates to politics in that it's a subject a bit too complex for the gibbering, unwashed masses of the general forum to comprehend.
