You're way off the mark here. You need to go back and read the
page again. I completely reject time, in all it's forms. Clocks
don't tell 'Time' they have hands that move in a circle. That's
it. Clocks don't fit the equation at all. Neither does jet-lag,
or the international date line.
I've been having a protracted discussion with a couple of other
friends regarding the nature (or non-existence) of time. Here's
the latest from that discussion. Maybe it'll help...
We are consciousness, traveling down a probability path.
Visiting nodes along the way. Each node is a static now. A fixed
and unchanging (no such thing as motion) configuration of
matter. An act never becomes a node. All acts are nodes. As your
consciousness visits these nodes you experience them in a linear
fashion (perceived as motion and time), because that's the only
way you are capable of processing the experience. You create
time and motion by processing the nodes your consciousness is
I'll give you a call when I get down to the Springs. I leave on
the 25th, class starts on the 26th. Will you two be busy on the
evening of the 25th? It's a Monday. I'll probably be spending
most of my weekends back here though.
The counters on my web pages are provided by Geocities. You can
get them with the free pages, but then you have to put up with
the advertisement. I pay for my Geocities services (GeoPlus).
$4.95 a month isn't a bad deal for what I'm getting. I have
different counters for every (almost every) page, and I do get
statistics with the counters.

I liked your essay on the existence of time. Although, I'd
like to say that
clocks don't necessarily tell time. They simply move a device

frequency. The acceptance of clocks being a judge of time is simply
interpretation. Clocks aren't always correct, so if you read a

being that you consciously accept the incorrect time? How does

Anyways, I'm sure we'll enjoy a deep discussion or two while
you are at the
NCO academy. By the way, where did you get your counter? I'm using a
counter from www.thecounter.com . It used to be free but about
ago they started charging for statistical data. The counter
works but it
has issues. Can you access statistical data via your counter provider?

We will add your currency to our own. Bend over right now.
Resistance is futile.
