    time is an integral part of the apparatus by which we receive impressions of reality. it is part of our subjectivity and has no objective counterpart. it aligns with certain objective (spatial) dimensions when we move along such spatial dimensions with high and lasting consistency. to illustrate this imagine standing on a cart that moves through a corridor with an ascending range of numbers written on the walls. you can not see the whole corridor from within the cart, only one of the numbers at any time through a window. you wake up on the cart without knowing that it is moving. now, you can not distinguish the visible number on the wall from a clock.

    this is also illustrated by the fact that in socionics, temporal (Dynamic) ontology (P) is subjective (i).

    Time is real. Time exists. No need to argue the point. But someone who tries to argue to hard that it doesn't, or is an illusion, probably has a problem with their Ni.

    (not saying that you do, lab... I'm thinking you probably picked this up from that nut who wrote a book about time being an illusion).
