Still, it's a fun way to consider universes.
First...Plato!!! I admire this guy so much I actually read the entire "The Republic" book, which, at first, was pretty boring.
"Time is just a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey...stuff."
Nice idea, though, never knew it was written first in the bible.
It's interesting to think about how ideas that we take for granted as simply existing, like linear time, or negative numbers, at one time were unknown or disregarded.
Which makes you wonder, because in my mind most things in this universe work both ways, how many ideas have been lost that were really true.
