OK, I must agree, but can you see how this removes our ability to use the
natural ordering of the integers as an explanation of the appearance of
time? Since there are multiple and equivalent (as to their properties)
sequences of integers that have very different orders relative to each
other, if we use these ordering as our "time" we would have a different
dimension of time for every one!

Have you had any more thoughts on the "book keeping" problem we have
discussed in the past?
