An idea I have been playing with recently is wondering if time could be viewed in an alternate fashion than is now.
One of the traditional ways of viewing time is conically:
I have been wondering if time could be viewed spatially as x, y, z coordinates. I don’t know if the time of physics and the time of perception are different.
One of the reasons I wonder about this is because the present seems more dynamic than a point in time. One of Einstein’s insights was that objects were not points in space, but complex volumes. Why can’t the same be said for the present and the observer?
I am going to think more about this, but I will leave you with this question. How could time have a positive and negative past, a positive and negative present and a positive and negative future?
I think the answer lies in realizing the observer is not a point. TimeSpace as opposed to SpaceTime.
