It would go without saying, maybe even be assumed, that "time" represents a linear "cause and effect" standard between events we measure (in time, in linear time, like simple cause to effect). Yet, some very fundamental phenomena, like light for instance, behaves as though on a dual energy front, waves perpendicular to each other, not as a linear relationship, yet we still use time as a linear measurement device to measure light. I have searched physics texts for the reason for this, and no explanation is given. Would it not be more accurate to suggest, when measuring light, for instance, that time also has properties like light, time essentially representing a binary condition perpendicular to itself?

With e = m c(squared), is not the insinuation with ācā that light is a unitary thing, when in fact it displays a dual energy front? Could not therefore a dual use of time provide a better interpretation of e = m c(squared)?
