Some peeps reckon we impose space and time on the world. I used to understand Kant on Time & Space. I liked Kant (eventually) - he made sense to me. Need to find out who's written recent philosophy on time. This looks fun http://www.utm.edu/research/iep/t/time.htm
Wondering about the state you get into when you appear to stop being aware of time passing eg when you're daydreaming or falling asleep or just concentrating hard.
Quotations I like
" If it (time) were circular, then Homer might write his Iliad and Odyssey epics in the future, a possibility that appealed to the ancient Stoic philosophers."
"In the literature in both physics and philosophy, descriptions of the big bang often assume that a first event is also a first instant of time and that spacetime did not exist outside the big bang. This intimate linking of a first event with a first time is a philosophical move, not something demanded by the science. It is not even clear that it's correct to call the big bang an event. "
"A theory of time should address the question of time's apparent direction."
