Reality can not be like that.
But are you just expressing a personal intuition there, or do you think some
actual logical paradox arises from the block time concept? Also, do you
agree that to define a notion of a single universal present, we must
privelege one relativistic reference frame over all others? If so, do you
think this reference frame is only "metaphysically" preferred while agreeing
with relativity's claim that no reference frame can be picked out as special
by any actual physical experiment, or do you hope for a new theory of
physics which actually picks out a physically preferred reference frame?
