The cosmos itself is not governed or regulated by time but by chance, so cosmology can never appear consistently logical. Time and regulation are human concepts. The ‘points and instants’ notion is no longer credible. Points are our basic intellectual tools since the instants arise through moving from point to point, making time discrete. A.N. Whitehead’s definition of time as “a sequence of non-interacting moments” is credible. Russell also said “There is no longer a universal time...” And Professor Eddington observed that time does not ‘flow’. The Minkowski 4-D geometry is seen as plainly false, and so time travel is impossible. There are no days in nature at all. There is only one constant day. All existence is daylight. The nights are freakish and irrelevant. The earth’s rotations are just flippant shadows over reality. Nothing in astronomy happens only by night and not by day. Logically deduced, time appears to be human and we can solve the problem of how it passes by, too.”

What is the New Rhetoric?

The Age of Information has spawned a critical focus on human communication in a multimedia world, particularly on theories and practices of writing. With the worldwide web impacting increasingly on academic and business communication, the need has never been greater for advanced study in writing, communication, and critical thinking across all genres, sectors, and cultures. In recent decades, the definitions of 'new rhetoric' have expanded to encompass a variety of theories and movements, raising the question of how rhetoric is understood and employed in the twenty-first century. The essays collected here represent variations on these themes, with each attempting to answer the title?s deliberately provocative question, addressing particularly: -How the classical art of rhetoric is still relevant today; -How it is directly related to modern technologies and the new modes of communication they have generated; -How rhetorical practice is informing research methodologies and teaching and learning practices in the contemporary academy.

Millions of people hate their jobs. Nancy Whitney Reiter used to be one of them. After finding herself in the lobby of the World Trade Center on 9/11—and getting out safely—she quit. She spent a year traveling the world, figuring out who she really was and what she really wanted to do. In this book, Reiter distills all she learned rebuilding her life in a practical, proactive approach you can use to make the same changes in your own life. After transforming the lives of hundreds of unhappy clients (and her own), she has truly perfected the art of personalizing her three-part system to meet the needs of every individual. You don’t have to travel the world or have a lot of resources; with Reiter’s unique comprehensive system—which recognizes you as an individual with unique circumstances—you can customize your career path to accommodate virtually any dream, regardless of budget. Complete with checklists, quizzes, worksheets, and contributors’ success stories, you will find the advice and answers you need to embark on a new career tailored to your personal and professional goals. Whether a recent graduate, antsy thirty-something, or unfulfilled Baby Boomer, you have the guidebook necessary to make one of the biggest—and best!—decisions of your life.

What is Space-Time Made of ?

In the first part of this book, the author synthesizes the main results and formulas of physics–Albert Einstein’s, with general relativity, gravitational waves involving elastic deformable space-time, quantum field theory, Heisenberg’s principle, and Casimir’s force implying that a vacuum is not nothingness. In the second part, based on these scientific facts, the author re-studies the fundamental equation of general relativity in a weak gravitational field by unifying it with the theory of elasticity. He considers the Ligo and Virgo interferometers as strain gauges. It follows from this approach that the gravitational constant G, Einstein’s constant ?, can be expressed as a function of the physical, mechanical and elastic characteristics of space-time. He overlaps these results and in particular Young’s modulus of space-time, with publications obtained by renowned scientists. By imposing to satisfy the set of universal constants G, c, ?, h and by taking into account the vacuum data, he proposes a new quantum expression of G which is still compatible with existing serious publications. It appears that time becomes the lapse of time necessary to transmit information from one elastic sheet of space to another. Time also becomes elastic. Thus, space becomes an elastic material, with a particle size of the order of the Planck scale, a new deformable ether, therefore different from the non-existent luminiferous ether. Finally, in the third part, in appendices, the author demonstrates the fundamentals of general relativity, cosmology and the theory of elasticity.

What, Then, Is Time?

'What is time?' Well-known philosopher and intellectual historian, Eva Brann mounts an inquiry into a subject universally agreed to be among the most familiar and the most strange of human experiences. Brann approaches questions of time through the study of ten famous texts by such thinkers as Plato, Augustine, Kant, Husserl, and Heidegger, showing how they bring to light the perennial issues regarding time. She also offers her independent reflections. Examining the three phases of time, past, present, and future, she argues that neither external time nor the time of the human past is real: the one is a comparison of motions and the other a projection of memory. She concludes that true time is internal and has its origin in the imaginative structure of memory and expectation. Throughout her rich and original study, Brann never fudges the central fact that time is a mystery.

A look at the human sense of time, a biological rhythm that may follow a different beat from that dictated by external, "official," "objective" timepieces. Time and Place—Timeplace—is a continuum of the mind, as fundamental as the spacetime that may be the ultimate reality of the material world.Kevin Lynch's book deals with this human sense of time, a biological rhythm that may follow a different beat from that dictated by external, "official," "objective" timepieces. The center of his interest is on how this innate sense affects the ways we view and change—or conserve, or destroy—our physical environment, especially in the cities.
