The assumption of timelessness and everness**

lee_broom

When discussing the assumption of a timeless world (which exists* beyond the material world as defined by  the senses) one must choose carefully to avoid the use of words which demonstrate the bias of time; for example, the words used in the sentence before this one.

“When”: Redundant.
“Discuss ing”: ing denotes present moment in time.
“Timeless”: Redundant.
“Exists”: Present.
“Made”: All verbs.
“Known:” Past
“Use”: All verbs
“Demonstrate”: All verbs.
“Bias”: Implication of time.
“Time”: Redundant.

My education is primarily in Design and in the Social Sciences. I am interested in Linguistics but only from the perspective of trends in behavior and philosophy.

I suspect that there exists an argument stating that all words and symbols found in all cultures reflect the bias of an awareness of time and that this bias  is a necessary feature of extancy (extance)**.

*frustrating, isn’t it?  [timeless world (which exists…)]

** Used twice, it is affirmed and therefore considered by at least one person to be a word.

Big deal. Old men and puppy dogs need something to occupy their “time” if only to mark their territory.
