Did this make sense? I see LS's as fundamental clocks, and thus it
should be possible to consider an "ensemble of clocks" as given by a
ensemble of LSs. But, I am very sketchy in my thinking of this. :-(
[MP] I cannot say. One should need a quantative model for clock.
Clock as oscillator is a nice model but based on the existence of
time! You want to derive time from the existence of clocks, I
am happy in deriving the existence of clocks from the existence
By the way, quantum jump sequence is the ultimate syncronizer in
TGD: every self makes quantum jump simultaneously, whatever its
psychological time is!
