    Storm in a teacup...

    Philosophical Debate of the day or week, if time actually existed, which it doesn't, we made it up...

    Storm in a Teacup or Raining Cats and Dogs?

    You decide...

    Pass, the day is too short.
    Please don't go on about how cool it is I like wargames. It gets old.
    Some of my comments are just me parroting his bitching.

    Cats and dogs. Storm in a Teacup sounds to much like a BBC special.

    I'm never happy if something messes with my cup of tea yet I wouldn't like being hit by cats and dogs on the way to the shop. It's a tricky one.

    As the 4th dimension, time (or the construct with which we identify 'time') does exist. However, your current sense of time is, in a metaphysical sense, is quite subjective. It's not a line segment-going from point A to point B, it's a lateral array with infinite rays emanating from this point in time, just like there are infinite rays emanating from the next moment in your 'time'.

    'Storm in a teacup', without doubt. A deep, resonant phrase that just hums with insights and speculations into the very nature of both the human condition and of the universe itself. 'Raining Cats and Dogs', however, just means I've forgotten my bloody brolley again.
