- Hi Etznab,
I enjoyed your comments. Yes, we measure time in
accepted, strange, and in linear terms. That is the whole
point of Timelines-right! It's a way of connecting the
dots-correct? However, we each experience and interpret
the "dots" differently and according to our preconceived
expectations, prejudices, intellect, consciousness, and
whether we had direct or indirect or word of mouth contact
with various events. Plus, I'm sure that our memories of
these historic events are affected by a number of factors
that are either honest or dishonest or for the greater "good."
BTW-I enjoyed reading your explanation (below) in regard
