Is Time ontological, epistemological or something not in those categories?
Is time a quality of a thing, a thing-in-itself, a perception of a thing…?
“Teacher, I handed in my paper”.
“”Yes, but you didn’t answer the questions”
“Decode it yourself. I handed it in”
It’s fine if you’re unable to answer my simple questions.
You mention that time is a thing-in-itself. So is it therefore “not” a quality nor a perception”? Or is it also a quality? Or also a perception?
Perhaps my questions were poorly worded.
Example: You mention that Time is a property of the the Universe. So, is Time a *quality* of the Universe? Can the Universe exist without the quality of Time-ness?
Or is this the game of “Peter makes statements that we must agree to and if we do not, he either grows silent or says he already answered lol”?
The opposite of Time would be that which is orthogonal to Time, just as “up and down” is opposite of “left and right”.
What is orthogonal to Time? An eternal “moment”. This is not duration because there is no movement in the ‘Timeline”.
hence: infinite moment is the opposite of Time.
A quality of Time is change.
A quality of an infinite moment is lack of change, stability, same-ness.
I’ll take silence to equate with agreeing with my position. Good
