Time is a man made concept, for the purpose of measuring cycles, primarily decay.
It is a linear illusion we have convinced ourselves is apart of our existence, but such is the way of many of mans concepts.

Now the mind-boggling part of it, and thers always..

Humankind measures time by its property of being measured actualy.

Although, Time substance's real property is, was and will be only the property of being infinite per se, meaning that Time is naturally endless inside its absolute conceptuation, and never an unit of measurement!

Time IS the Infinity! Isnt the absence of Time that grants one with the bless of infinity, but only when of its full understanding.

Being infinite doesnt means to be timeless, only to react according to its real property values...

As one elastic and maleable substance, it can be measured alright, and just like the good ol Newton's "Every action is accompanied by a reaction of equal magnitude but opposite direction".

:flop:

How one can be measuring the Infinity...illusion

You dont wanna like to be measured by the Infinity either aye :mrgreen:

I dreamt I was a butterfly, or did the butterfly dream it was me?

Hey man fuck off! I am making a rap to that beat! You want to see me making a fool of myself infront of a camera or you want to make childish low brow comments?

Actually, Sinhas did a half-ass job here.

They're Slobinists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Slobin), much more than cultural anthropologists.

I hate that. It's almost like if i'd write a treatise on nuclear physics.

If they were cultural anthropologists, they'd ask the Tribe about their diet, hallucinogenics they most probably traditionally ingest, etc, etc.
Time-altering drugs, such as Virola, is an integral part of a social life for a lot of Amazonian tribes in Rondonia.

Then, Sinhas never explained does this phenomenon apply only to grown male tribesmen, or women and children as well, since women are not allowed to ingest hallucinogens.

"The team hypothesises that the lack of the time concept arises from the lack of “time technology” – a calendar system or clocks – and that this in turn may be related to the fact that, like many tribes, their number system is limited in detail."


This is where they are wrong, in my honest opinion.

That tribe don't have the "lack of the time concept" at all.

Sergey Meyen's concept ot time says that the time is the variability of real objects. It's called Typological Concept of Time.

Now, Sinhas in their treatise "Mixing and Mapping: Motion, Path and Manner in Amondawa", conclude :


"A. Path-conflating motion verbs include the following (NB the verb stem is
obligatorily prefixed for person and number):
-ho : go/exit
-hem : exit
-xi : enter
-jupin : ascend/climb
-jym : descend"

"Path-specifying postpositions are obligatory in all but basic motion constructions in Amondawa,
so that the fully specified motion construction, including the postposition, is the
only way to express motion in relation to a Ground"

So isn't that a paradox : their language does include path-conflating motion verbs (and motion is conceptually related to progression in place and in time) but they don't have the concept of the time?

WTF?! :badair:

It's utter nonsense to say that someone (with the exception of drug ab(use), Asperger syndrome, Parkinson, and/or some other illness) lacks the concept of time.

They should've say : "yeah, they do have a concept of time, but it's a bit different than ours."

And i'd say : "they perhaps don't have a metrical sense of time, for whatever reasons. But they do have a time memory, a memory of time when a certain event occured."


Time is unreal. Period.

Rant over.
