Bruno, everyone,

I've decided that it will be more productive/entertaining to post my
various concerns as a new topic.

What is time?

I'm going to ask a bunch of questions; for the sake of brevity, I'm
going to skip my arguments (which would mostly be reasons why
particular answers don't work). I'll argue once someone replies.

If all possible universes exist, does that mean every possible moment,
or every possible timeline of moments? If "moments" is the answer,
then how are the moments connected? How would it matter, since the
moments already are what they are? If "timeline" is the answer, then
there is a similar question of how it matters.

If there is a physical universe, then is there some sort of basic
physical connection behind time?

If the universe is mathematical in nature, then what is the
mathematical connection between moments? What sort of mathematical
connection counts as time?

If (as was recently suggested, in connection with relativity) time
cannot really be divided into individual moments, then what is it?

Why do we experience time passing?

Is it legitimate to think as if the next moment we experience will be
chosen randomly in some sense? Does probability or randomness have a
role to play in the flow of time?

In connection with UDA: what is the meaning of a first-person
probability due to uncertainty of the future? Is there any sense in
which such estimates can be more or less accurate if all possible next
moments do in fact occur?

Hope that sparks some thought...
