DIFFERENT VIEWS ABOUT TIME

DIFFERENT VIEWS ABOUT TIME

Time is a physical magnitude that affects all reality, but we do not have a specific sense to perceive the intervals. This makes each person get a different idea about the nature of time. There is no consensus on what time is.

1- Heraclitus of Ephesus (philosopher): becoming flows like a river, it is the Being.
2- Parmenides of Elea (philosopher): there are no changes, there is no time.
3- Aristotle of Estagira (philosopher): time exists when movement involves a number.
4- Galileo Galilei (physicist): movement is relative. If A moves with respect to B, B moves with respect to A.
5- Isaac Newton (physicist): time is real and absolute.
6- Immanuel Kant (philosopher): time is an a priori form.
7- Albert Einstein (physicist): time is an illusion and relative.
8- Henri Bergson (philosopher): rejected mathematical time.
9- Martin Heidegger (philosopher): time is the being-there or dasein, time is temporary.
10- Julian Barbour (physicist): time does not exist.
11- Paul Davies (physicist): defends the unidirectionality or arrow of time.
12- José Ignacio Latorre (physicist): time is a parameter that relates two movements.
13- Lee Smolin (physicist): time is real.
14- Bradford Skow (philosopher): past, present and future coexist in the universe.
15- David Eagleman (neurobiologist): time is invented by the brain.
16- Elvis Sibilia (psychologist): time and becoming are synonymous. Duration is magnitive, that is, objective, imperceptible and measurable.

Meaning of colors:

Blue: time exists (5)
Black: intermediate (5)
Red: time does not exist (6)

DIAGRAM OF DURATION

The Diagram of duration is the union between phenomena and time.



ADJUSTMENT SCIENCES

ADJUSTMENT SCIENCES

The adjustment is the union of several pieces or elements that fit perfectly together.

..CIENCE ................ PURPOSE
Psychology .......... personal adjustment
Logic ................... reason adjustment
Philochrony ......... adjustment of chromnesia*
Mechanics ........... adjustment of the progress of a car
Watchmaking ...... clocks adjustment

* The chromnesia is the mental clock that allows us:

a) Relate several time intervals.
b) Relate several time uses.
c) Visualize or understand the nature of time.

Computer science is the responsible for the adjustment of programs in a system of computers.

Ethics is responsable for the adjustment of criminals and inmoral people.

Psychology, Logic, Philochrony and Ethics are sciences 
of the human adjustment.

Mechanics, Clockmaking and Computer science are sciences
of the technological adjustment.

PROVING THAT DURATION IS MAGNITIVE

PROVING THAT DURATION IS MAGNITIVE (EXISTS)

1- Think about an hourglass.

2- The fall of the grains of sand is time or becoming, which is perceptible sequentially.

3- Between the beginning and the end of the sand fall there is a time interval or duration. This interval is objective, but imperceptible because we only see one moment at a time. Duration is composed of non-coexistent moments.

4- We can use the movement of the sand as a unit of measurement because it is periodic and with uniform velocity.

5- We can also use a chronometer to determine the duration of the clock.


6- In 4 and 5 we noticed that we can use patterns to quantify time.

7- Therefore, duration is magnitive, that is, objective, imperceptible and measurable.

PHILOCHRONY IS THE EIGHTH ART

PHILOCHRONY IS THE EIGHTH ART

The Fine Arts are classified in:

SPACE (they can be seen and touched, occupy a place in space):

Architecture, Sculpture, Painting (drawing)

TEMPORARY (they can not be seen or touched (they only last the moment they are appreciated):

Literature (poetry, theater), Music and Philocrony

MIXED (they are a mixture of the qualities of spatial and temporal):

Dance, Cinema


The philocron person not only sees the time on the clock, but also
he delights in the rhythm and periodicity of this valuable instrument.

Periodic phenomena are a source of beauty for Philochrony.

THE PHILOCHRON LINE OR PHILOCHRONY

THE PHILOCHRON LINE OR PHILOCHRONY

               duration
------- b ------------ e -------> time or becoming

b = beginning
e = end

The past has already happened.
The future hasn't occurred.
The present is a mnemonic illusion.
Only the philochrony is real (the relation between two events).
