Agreed, Liz. His bizarre misunderstandings about block time (it violates 
conservation of energy) and sundry other statements exhibiting poor 
comprehension of modern physics reveal him to be exactly what you suspected 
early on: a crackpot. The question he put to you in which he asked if you 
ceased to exist at one point on his timeline reveals his basic error of logic. 
Everything must exist simultaneously with me, therefore there is a universal 
common present moment. Obviously that does not necessarily follow but Mr Owen 
has invested so much in his idea (he's written a book - self-published one 
might assume) that he is incapable of seriously questioning it any more. I 
guess there are two routes to genius: have a brilliant, revolutionary idea and 
convince the world, or have a wrong revolutionary idea and armour yourself so 
heavily against reason that every rebuttal merely reinforces your own view that 
you are a misunderstood visionary. Ad hominem. Mea culpa.
