    I've seen this debate before in this forum, but there was one thing I was not able to properly grasp, namely why time must remain "1 dimensional". Time is a way we measure the change of events, and sure to make it one dimensional is to simply take two events arbitrarily in the arena of cause and event and join that using "time". But take E-M radiation for instance: EM raditation propagates on 2 fronts, both perpendicular to each other, and seemingly in a uniform manner, meaning that if an EM event occured at a certain position in space, it would radiate uniformly along two fronts perpendicular to one another in a spherical (radially outwards) fashion. And this is what I forget: why was it, again, that we cannot suggest that we can use a binary-ruler as time, time on "two" fronts, perpendicular to each other, to better study, for instance, EM radiation?

    Basically time doesnt have to be 1d. This is a very conventional way of seeing it. In less conventional systems time can be described as 3d.

    If we lived primarily in a binary-wave energy reality, and it was decided to use a dual-tool of measurement for time, could we better understand energy propagation as a "singularity" in space if already it's dual characteristics are handled by using a dual-measurement basis of time?

    You might not understand that question, but take time to think about it. Basically, if "time" was used as a binary measurement tool that latched onto, so to speak, the binary wave characteristics of light, for instance, could that use of time better explain the singular event (in space) of light, of energy, and thus maybe give us a better indication of for instance "mass" and thus gravity?

    I think the reason for my post here is to ask the question of what restrictions exist in fundamental physics theory-design of time and why.
