    Please don't act like you have a direct line to the truth; you have an opinion.

    My truth on time , my thinking upon time is a 35yr. journey of thought . The thinking upon time is not some whimsical 6month thinking .

    Therefore , in this case , the truth of time and what it is , and is not , is earned , not given .

    Yes, you are entitled to your views on the matter.

    And you need not defend them.

    Unless you assert them in a public discussion. Then you need to defend them.

    Chapter 3 digs deeper into these issues, which are related to the failure of
    dialectics. It outlines the confusion between time and event, and describes the
    semantic disorder concerning the duration of the ongoing (or present) time,
    countless metaphors, aphorisms, sophisms, truisms, and so forth, including artifacts
    (i.e., conceptions based on an idea, such as a clock or a clepsydra, used to evaluate
    the duration between two events).

    The becoming-duration duality. We perceive changes, but not duration.
    We verify duration on clocks. Time is magnitive.

    THE MAGNITIVE

    The magnitive is the property of beings that can be measured, but It is imperceptible. The magnitive is objective, but not concrete; for example in Physics: force, gravity and time. We feel weight, but not gravity.

    Magnitive (created by Asexperia) is a modification of the word magnitude.

    From post # 927 .

    Still don't quite get it .

    Explain with more depth .

    Property of Beings ?

    Objective: existing independently of perception or an individual's conceptions.

    Subjective: existing in the mind.

    Abstract: thought of apart from concrete realities or specific objects.

    Concrete: being a real or actual thing.

    Magnitive: imperceptible and objective magnitude, but measurable.

    Magnitude: greatness of size or amount.

    How come you have 2 member names? I'm pretty sure that is against the site rules.

    As Sibilia you posted the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over for 37 pages.
    So now as Asexperia you are seriously going to post the same thing over and over and over and over for another 37 pages??

    This is absurd. I hope for your sake you are some bot and not actually a person.

    So what do you think? Have you said the same thing enough times yet? Made your point yet?

    Are you going for the coveted 'most annoying poster' award?

    I so do like the ignore feature!

    Bu-bye

    Relax origin. Others collaborate and ask about the subject.

    Do not add more posts to the thread.

    Intuition is the faculty of experiencing ideas, sensations and feelings concerning an object of knowledge.
    We intuit time as a flowing objective magnitude.
    What is magnitive is imperceptible, but intuitive.

    Sorry, I didn't say that intuition is fleeting.

    We can define time in several ways, but its nature is only one: magnitive.

    I'm pretty sure that's not how public forums work...

    How to you distinguish between its "definition" and its "nature"?

    Well, except that's a made up word. So, while interesting in terms of giving it a label, it doesn't do much to inform the topic.
