    So this follows if your processing speed was equal to infinity you would experience no time at all because you would process that infinite set of information instantly
    (1/x^s=1 infinite set) and if it were possible to go beyond a processing speed of infinity then you would enter the realm of the creator who exist before time and never had the experience of time for that experience of decay -1 written by the pen of the electron is reserved for only finite beings born into the sine wave of time, time is a dimension and there are dimensions beyond time. This is the analogy of time.

    The creator is expressed as infinities in the many faculties of observable facts "probability"

    My head exploded faster than infinity when I read that.

    Stressed??? Not in the least! Afterall its not I that has undergone permanent bans at other science forums...It's not I that has had every thread started on this forum, shifted to alternative, pseudoscience and even cesspool.
    Those facts quite admirably reflect on who is and who isn't stressed.
    Further more its not I that is on the outer in every respect to my science....It's not I suffering from delusions of grandeur.....It's not I so stressfully refuting all evidence invalidating comical fairy tale ideas......It's not I claiming dark is real and light an illusion.

    And yes, I'm certainly 100% true to myself, and just as objective.
    'Nuff said.

    Time has two components: One dimension (1) in which all events occur (2). Processes take time due to the property of prolongation of changes existence. The dimension of time is directed to the future.

    See my post: Defining Time from an Axiom.

    That description is circular.

    Humans DO have a processing speed of infinity! 1+1=?

    I imagine you calculated the sum instantaneously.

    Personally I fed 1+1 in the direction of my adding department and my adding department came back with 'this is one I know' and gave me '2'.
    The 'feeding in the direction of' and getting the result back all takes (me) time.
    Even if you had the results of all possible additions available it would take some space to store - you can't keep them all on top of each other - so picking the answer you want would involve the speed of light at some point.

    I agree. It's one we already know.

    You must get there before someone else gets the answer, in my opinion.

    We know that Michael345 is posting from Australia. I am posting from the UK. He is about 12,000 miles away from me as the crow flies (they don't tunnel). The speed of light is about 30,000 miles per second. In general cables and fibre optics are much slower - the theoretical limit to how soon 'information' can get to me is set by the speed of light. So to travel 12,000 miles at 30,000 miles per second will take an absolute minimum of 0.4 of a second. Even if I replied instantly any reply from me would take 0.4 of a second to get back to him - so there is a minimum theoretical time of about 0.8 seconds for him to get a response to a post directed at me. I see that James R is much closer to Michael345 and will be able to respond in much less than 0.8 seconds. Since time seems to be the issue here I will leave it to James R to respond.

    In your universe you might find the speed of light is closer to 186,000 miles per second.

    I'm glad you corrected that, but I think that would be the case in just about every universe. Reality requires time to unfold in any and all directions. "C" is not imposed as a speed limit of light, but as a quantum limit on explication in reality.

    That goes for you too.

    Nothing. The universe requires an observer.

    As I said, this is the science-section. You are expected to use the Queen's English, not some Write4U-bastardisation of it. Your statement is gibberish.
