The eBook presented here, the fifth in a series, describes the fundamental theoretic problems in contemporary physics, detailing the current theoretic limitations physics is facing, while then providing a solution to those problems in the form of a re-analysis of the concept and utility of time in theoretical construction. Chapter 1 (paper 29) provides a solution to Bell’s Theorem in proposing how time-points can be non-local. Chapter 2 (paper 30) then further explains the non-locality of time-points with the derivation of a “Magnetic Quantum Shell”, correctly deriving its mass value based on latest CERN results. Chapters 3 through to 5 then present an overall summary of Temporal Mechanics (papers 1-30) in the form of time-space circuits (chapter 3, paper 31), time-space constants (chapter 4, paper 32) and time-space manifolds (chapter 5, paper 33). The entire premise of Temporal Mechanics is based on the idea of time representing "time-points" in space that form a "time-aether" with an associated intrinsic golden-ratio time-algorithm (supporting a fractal lattice temporal aether), a time-aether that allows for the propagation of light in space and for elementary particle phenomena to manifest. To prove this time-point aether, the temporal calculus as presented here is able to successfully derive the masses of the elementary particles (proton, neutron, electron, and the lightest known neutrino), the basic unit of charge of an electron, together with deriving the Vacuum constant of space as associated to the CMBR, the Vacuum energy, vacuum permeability and permittivity, the redshift effect, all of this upon having already derived all standard equations and constants for the field forces and associated energies, all from this time-point aether, directly pointing to a steady-state time-space reality. The real achievement here in this series of five papers (papers 29-33) is in chapter 5 (paper 33) where the great manifolds of this solar system are correctly derived, together with providing a solution to the “Black Hole Information Paradox”, all in the context of presenting a new cosmological model, starkly different to the current ΛCDM model. All the papers are separately and freely available, or as a PDF compilation, at: http://www.equusspace.com/index-2.htm So, the choice is yours how to take upon the reading.

Responding to the current surge in present-tense novels, Making Time is an innovative contribution to narratological research on present-tense usage in narrative fiction. Breaking with the tradition of conceptualizing the present tense purely as a deictic category denoting synchronicity between a narrative event and its presentation, the study redefines present-tense narration as a fully-fledged narrative strategy whose functional potential far exceeds temporal relations between story and discourse. The first part of the volume presents numerous analytical categories that systematically describe the formal, structural, functional, and syntactic dimensions of present-tense usage in narrative fiction. These categories are then deployed to investigate the uses and functions of present-tense narration in selected twenty-first century novels, including Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake, Ian McEwan’s Nutshell, and Irvine Welsh’s Skagboys. The seven case studies serve to illustrate the ubiquity of present-tense narration in contemporary fiction, ranging from the historical novel to the thriller, and to investigate the various ways in which the present tense contributes to narrative worldmaking.

An examination of how the daily work of NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers was organized across three sites on two planets using local Mars time. In 2004, mission scientists and engineers working with NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers (MER) remotely operated two robots at different sites on Mars for ninety consecutive days. An unusual feature of this successful mission was that it operated on Mars time—the daily work was organized across three sites on two planets according to two Martian time zones. In Making Time on Mars, Zara Mirmalek shows that this involved more than a resetting of wristwatches; the team's struggle to synchronize with Mars time involved technological and communication breakdowns, informal workarounds, and extra work to support the technology that was intended to support people. Her account of how NASA created an entirely new temporality for the MER mission offers insights about the assumptions behind the organizational relationship between clock time and work. Mirmalek, herself a member of the mission team, offers an insider's view of the MER workplace and community. She describes the discord among MER's multiple temporalities and examines issues of professional identity that helped shape the experience of working according to Mars time. Considering time and work relationships through a multidisciplinary lens, Mirmalek shows how contemporary and historical human–technology relationships inform assumptions about the unalterability of clock time. She argues that the organizational connection between clock time and work, although still operational, is outdated.

Publishing is the currency of academia. But if publishing is so important, why is it so hard to find time to write? Making Time to Write exposes how women’s experiences with writing in their careers are mired in the racist, ableist, patriarchal culture of academia that was built to exclude them. Building on her experience navigating the academy to become a tenured, full professor, and her work as a writing and career coach for hundreds of academic womxn, Cathy Mazak guides readers through the work of finding and honoring writing time. In the process, readers learn to build their careers around their writing practice instead of letting writing occupy the edges. From mindset work to creating a relationship-based writing system, Making Time to Write shatters the myths around writing every day (you don’t have to), accountability (it’s paternalistic), and motivation (it blames the victim). More than just a how-to guide, Making Time To Write is a manifesto on the feminizing of academic culture through reshaping women’s writing practices.

Are you a former music-maker who yearns to return to music, but aren't sure where to begin? Or are you a person who never played music as a child but you are now curious about trying? You're not alone. Many adults who used to play an instrument haven't touched it in years because either they can't find the time to practice, are afraid their skills are too rusty, or are unsure of what kind of group they could join. Others are afraid to sing or start playing an instrument because they received negative feedback from childhood experiences. Performing, practicing, and composing music may seem like unattainable goals with insurmountable obstacles for busy adults with non-musical careers. Making Time for Making Music can help adults find ways to make music part of their lives. The first book of its kind, it is filled with real-life success stories from more than 350 adults who manage to fit music-making into their jam-packed schedules. They polished rusty skills, found musical groups to join, and are having a great time. Their testimonies prove that you are never too old to learn to make music, and that there are numerous musical paths to explore. Featuring advice from dozens of music educators, health care professionals, and music researchers who point out that making music can even be good for your health as well as an extensive resource list of websites, organizations, and summer programs, this book offers inspiration and tried-and-true strategies for anyone who wishes to return to music-making or begin as an adult.

In this study of time and history in the ancient Greek world, Katherine Clarke argues that choices concerning the articulation and expression of time, especially time past, reflect the values of those who narrate it and also of their audiences. In this way construction of the past both displays and contributes to a sense of shared identity.

As we navigate through life we instinctively model time as having a flowing present that divides a fixed past from open future. This model develops in childhood and is deeply saturated within our language, thought and behavior, affecting our conceptions of the universe, freedom and the self. Yet as central as it is to our lives, physics seems to have no room for this flowing present. This book demonstrates this claim in detail and then turns to two novel positive tasks. First, by looking at the world in the spatial directions it shows that physics is not 'spatializing time' as is commonly alleged. Second, if the flowing present is an illusion, it is a deep one worthy of explanation. The author develops a picture whereby the temporal flow arises as an interaction effect between an observer and the physics of the world. Using insights from philosophy, cognitive science, biology, psychology and physics, the theory claims that the flowing present model of time is the natural reaction to the perceptual and evolutionary challenges thrown at us. Modeling time as flowing makes sense even if it misrepresents it.
