My time research centers largely on alternative interpretations of the temporal effects of Special Relativity. In short, there’s a huge disconnect between the philosophical description of time, the personal experience of time, the academic conceptions of time, and the physical attributes of time as an aspect of physical reality.
Philosophy debates the reality of time in terms of experience, which is not based in physical science, while general physics denies the reality of time as evidenced by Special Relativity. Something has fallen through the cracks, and I’m currently pursuing research to pry open what I argue are our inadequate conceptions to get at the true nature of physical time and what it might mean for physics at-large, objective reality, and personal experience.
