Visualising Time (12 Apr 2006)
Time is an elementary magnitude, a primary concept that canít be defined in terms of other, more basic, concepts. As such its definition is difficult and itís based on the universal human experience that time does exist and has certain properties. In other words, we have a very rudimentary knowledge about the nature of time.

You have only to look in any dictionary to realise that, in fact, we donít have even the faintest idea of what time is except that it accomplishes certain features that (normal) people experience intuitively.
