Uni-Temporalism, the Relation of Human Beings to Time and the ‘future’ of Time in Physics

Authors: Georgina Woodward

An examination of time. Presentation of Uni-temporalism, an advance on Presentism that provides both unambiguous foundational sequential time (that is the temporal expression for the continually changing configuration of the material universe) and emergent, information derived, relative time. Some ideas about time are given for comparison. Uni-temporal time is compared with Newtonian time and proper time. The two kinds of time presented dispel the temporal paradoxes. Time reversibility is removed from Classical mechanics if uni-temporal (-Now) time is used instead of Newtonian time. The arrows of time provided by Uni-temporalism are set out. Past, present and future are re-considered. The two kinds of time allow physics using sequential time and physics using relativistic time to co-exist without there being incompatibility or contradiction.
