It bothers me that in 2015 we still ultimately “hang time off of the fixed stars”

Yes, what you mentioned about Gold is the kind of thing I’m hoping to pull together in an unspectacular, matter-of-fact way. My main focus is cognitive experience and a partial reclamation of the subjective but I like that fact about Gold – and will be happy with any other examples of that you come across.

I should look into Permutation City; it’s my kind of read and I’d love any other tidbits from it that you might have.

It bothers me that in 2015 we still ultimately “hang time off of the fixed stars”. The atomic clock creates it own time that we base time off of, but we forget quickly that it WAS calibrated with the Sun and Moon, just like astrologers of old. Growing up, I would have been certain that relativistic time would be commonplace by 2015 and it’s far from it. Perhaps it is in hopes of hanging on to a classical view of objectivity; because with relativistic Time, accurate measuring will become increasingly difficult and the Science would have to acknowledge the validity of the individual perspective n some capacity other than for pulling together statistical models of this and that.
