wasn't it the aboriginal australians that had no concept of time? no idea of their age or anything... I seem to remember a term "dream time" relating to that or is this all flashbacks from crocodile dundee?


In fact we each have our own individual time since we all have a different zenith, since no 2 people can occupy the same space (without suffering ill effects). Time zones are just a generalization of this since we don't really need to be all that accurate, but the actual difference could be several seconds or even minutes across a large city to a full hour across a fair sized european nation

Time is important because two people *can* occupy the same space, only not at the same *time*... smiley - geeksmiley - erm

First, what do you mean by "lack of time"? There are still 24 hours in a day, yes? I find that there are an even 60 minutes to an hour as well.... please clarify...

Second, what do you mean by "become one"? In what sense does this "becoming" happen? I f the people are joined in "holy matrimony" to become one, then they will actually be sacrificing a great deal of time, and if they have kids then just forget about it. If they join physically, one absorbing the other like an amoeba, then they would have more enrgy and mass but still 24 hours in a day...

What is really important is not the amount of time, but the quality of the way it is spent

Although, by having more mass, time would pass slightly more slowly for them relative to an observer... smiley - weirdsmiley - scientist
