Time Travel (part 2)

Bergson's cone.
So it doesn't make any sense to talk about time 'travel', because there's nothing called time to travel IN. There's nothing called space to travel in either; to recap from last time, if I walk from this side of the room to the other side of the room, one way to describe this would be that it takes me a certain amount of time to cover the space between here and the other side of the room. But you can't really properly define either of those things without the other, they're two sides of the same thing - you can't really talk about the time to get to the other side of the room without talking about the space ("it took me 5 seconds to walk over there"), and you can't really talk about the space of that walk without talking about the time ("it's not far, only takes a fewseconds to get from here to there").

And again try to find something called space or something called time, separate to the chairs and floor …
