      PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY "S2 IS FALSE"

      > S2: Between m1 and m2, time passes for a duration greater than zero seconds.
      > - m1 is the moment "1:00 pm, Jan. 1, 2000."
      > - m2 is the moment "2:00 pm, Jan. 1, 2000.."

      m2-m1=60*60>0


      thanks

      In order for time flow to occur between m1 and m2, Newton's time must exist. Newton's time does not exist. Therefore, time flow cannot occur between m1 and m2.(1)

      [Adhanom Andemicael]
      If consciousness does not exist, time flow does not occur.(2) If time flow does not occur, persistence does not occur. Therefore, if consciousness does not exist, persistence does not occur.

      ***

      If unconsciousness exists, consciousness does not exist. If consciousness does not exist, persistence does not occur. Therefore, if unconsciousness exists, persistence does not occur.

      ***

      Can unconsciousness persist? 

      A necessary condition for unconsciousness to persist is the following: Persistence must occur while unconsciousness exists. Note however, persistence cannot occur while unconsciousness exists. The answer to the question posed above is therefore "no." 

      We must conclude that unconsciousness cannot persist.


      ***

      Let us consider the following statements:

      S1: O_A's subjective time passes if and only if O_A is conscious.
      S2: Between m1 and m2, O_A is not conscious. 

      S3: Between m1 and m2, O_A's subjective time does not pass.

      **

      S4: No objective time passes between points in Einstein's time.(3),(4)
      S5: m1 and m2 are points in Einstein's time.

      S6: No objective time passes between m1 and m2. 

      **

      S7: O_A's subjective time does not pass between m1 and m2.
      S8: No objective time passes between m1 and m2. 

      S9: No time passes between m1 and m2.


      ***

      If S1 and S2 are true, then S3 is true. S1 and S2 are true. Therefore, S3 is true.

      If S4 and S5 are true, then S6 is true. S4 and S5 are true. Therefore, S6 is true.

      If S7 and S8 are true, then S9 is true. S7 and S8 are true. Therefore, S9 is true.



      Notes:

      1. Newton's time is the only kind of time that can elapse between m1 and m2. Neither Einstein's time nor O_A's subjective time elapses between m1 and m2. (Note: O_A's subjective time elapses if and only if O_A is conscious.)

      2. Note: I'm referring to a scenario in which only one conscious observer (i.e., O_A) exists.

      3. Einstein's time is static. (It never "passes" or "flows.")

      4. The terms "pass," "flow," and "elapse" are synonymous.
