Ghandi was a typical deranged darkie who promoted drinking your own pee and he was a wife beater. It's time for the rest of us to conclude that these bottom feeders are clueless and move on to proven ideas.

I've got nothing against Ghandi, but it seems he was overly protective over his sandwiches.

"Esoptrics: The Logic Of The Mirror" is the cosmological theory I've been honing since 1957. In it, time is objective or subjective. Objective time is "universal time"&"time as the measure of relative duration". Objective time is in units called "alphakaronons" (K ), a minimum segment called "ultimate time" & "u-time" and always c. 10^-96 sec.. Esoptrics thus says all duration is an integral multiple of one alphakronon, such as 2K, 3K .... 2^385K. Subjective time is"particular time" & "time as the measure of change". Subjective time results because, for Esoptrics, the Universe's ultimate constituents never change continuously but engage in states of excitation each of which is, for some number of K, internally changeless. As long as an ultimate engages in a temporarily changeless state, that static state's relative duration can be expressed in the terms of K by those able to calculate it; but, for the ultimate engaging in that static state, objective time has no effect upon it. For it, time, as the measure of duration, is at a standstill, and only time, as the measure of change, is of any relevance to it. Esoptrics thus challanges Newton's first law of motion. Instead of saying what's at rest or in motion tends to stay that way, says every ultimate is ever engaged in changing from static state of excitation to another at a definite rate (in the terms of K) and tends to continue doing so at that rate.
