The post of Mark Hopkins expressed very clearly what geometric
time is: it is only one additional dimension, it is not a process.
But our subjective IS process! This discrepancy is the Big
Problem of present day physics and of consciousness theories also!
Real progress can begin only if this problem is recognized (and
sooner or later unavoidably leads to TGD picture of time(;-)).

It is extremely difficult to think a single clear thought
about time and understanding of other's thoughts about time is even more
difficult(;-). My own adventurous travel to the recent ideas about
 what psychological time actually is, is excellent demonstration of this
fact. I am happy that not all that trash I have produced about
time is not published. The concept of time is simply at the
the upper limit of our (at least my) cognitive abilities.
