What do you mean by "resources of Platonia" ?

No physical block universe then. But that confirms what Quentin Anciaux 
said, it all boils down to the question of a primitive time or not.
Obviously, comp makes time (and space and all physicalities) form of  
"stable illusion" from inside. (But I dislike the word "illusion"). 
Many physicist, like Sanders for example, and many philosophers defend 
the indexical version of time (which is also defended by Deutsch).

Peter, be patient for a comment to your long post of today, I am trying 
to finish a comment on another long post by David.
