Images of Time

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the architecture, or verbal description, of temporal processes and scenarios commonly assumed in this subject. It discusses the differences between process time and manifold time, point time and interval time, endophysics and exophysics. Then it explores the architectural differences between Aristotelian spacetime, Galilean-Newtonian space-time, Minkowski spacetime, and general relativistic spacetimes. The chapter looks at multi-fingered time, continuous time, and discrete time. It explores the relationship between block universe architecture and that needed to discuss particle decays experiments. It ends with a survey of the four architectural levels of observation, that is, a description of the different temporal architectures of observation that invoke different images of time.

Keywords:   temporal architecture, process time, manifold time, point time, interval time, multi-fingered time, relativistic time, block universe, particle decays, observational architecture
