hmm, unraveling a tangled web... wondering how this may affect the point of horizon views.

Interesting quote, ISIS?

Here are two comments for consideration ...

I still don't buy into the whole time aspect.

IMO I believe that the results are being misinterpreted - that the researchers are measuring and applying their understanding based on a belief that time is an absolute and real and not the illusion and simple measuring tool that (I believe) it really is. Take "time" out of the equation and what do you have left? Surely there is another way, another angle, to see and describe this behavior. I'm just a layman and that's my 2 cents.

As another layman, I think our problem with understanding time is that first we experience it as a series of events, which physics then re-enforces by treating it as a measurement issue. Thus we describe it as the present "moving" from past to future.

Logically it is the events which are ephemeral, not the existence of what is present and it is the changing configuration of this presence that turns future potential into present actual, than past residual. That it is the events going future to past.

Consider that the earth is not traveling some narrative fourth dimension from yesterday to tomorrow, but that tomorrow becomes yesterday because the earth rotates. That way time is an effect of action, rather than the basis for it, so it is similar to temperature. Effectively time is to frequency, what temperature is to amplitude.
