    Well for mine; time doesn't in fact exist anywhere other than within man's imagination, so man may measure this imaginary concept any way his imagination can dream up.

    I don't understand the question, sorry. Time is an imaginary unit of moments, which do eventuate; with each having infinitesimal length yet infinite width. However neither the past (backwards from any moment) exists, nor the future.

    Well like I said - man can measure anything he imagines. Distance also, in my opinion, is a concept (and measurement) from within man's imagination.

    It is quite a hurdle to conceptualise that neither time nor space exist anywhere but within the imagination of man, but until one does just this, he will be forever making up illogical constructs to fit into an imaginary reality.

    Please ignore Apophis Reject. He makes up his own physics in his Universe; it's not the same one we inhabit.

    A year isn't a time unit, but rather a unit of motion - an orbit of earth around the sun.

    A little unfair by any objective reckoning, I would say, AND that would be the same earth around the same sun that would appear to be in the same universe in which you also inhabit.

    It really isn't about being helpful so much, as about being consistently verifiable, my friend - in fact; about being SCIENTIFIC by a logical dimension!

    I hope you see the difference here.

    A Reject is totally unqualified to give any answer on the physical science.

    Thank you for the invitation, but arguing with a crank is only useful for entertainment value, and you have none.

    Your offer is Rejected.

    Well I guess, as mentioned in another thread - you clearly haven't a clue how to 'correct' my errors, so why did you impose your crank in the first place - just for entertainment value?

    Under the circumstances, it appears your rejection is probably the best choice you could make.
