    Sorry, but time is abstract. No patent for you!

    Time is an illusion. Time of filing doubly so.

    Thanks to Douglas Adams.

    ah, I am reminded of Brane slices and other notions to causality…

    @ Anon

    Thank you for adding dimensions of confusion to the subject. Yours from a parallel universe.

    Odd post, Paul, as my add may add dimensions of understanding and complexity, as opposed to ‘confusion.’

    Those who know, will appreciate.
    Those who do not, MAY seek to understand (and thus grow).
    Those already unknowing and choose to stay so, well, THAT is their choice, is it not?

    I will confess that I don’t totally understand how the Brane universe fits in, though it is an interesting subject.
