Reading, thinking, and occasionally writing about the fundamental nature of time have been my avocation and passion for the past 50 or so years. During that time, I gradually have amassed some thoughts on the topic which I believe are original, constructive, and, best of all, "correct," whatever that may mean in the context of science and/or philosophy; I personally take it to mean that these ideas currently are the best available explanation for observed phenomena, with the understanding that they will remain so only until someone offers a better, more comprehensive explanation, which presumably would then subsume all previous "best explanations." Should anyone be interested, I've written four relatively brief essays setting forth what I believe is a helpful paradigm for the nature of time.
