Thanks for posting this topic about another view on time,
It is not the typical view of time but seems valid in some aspects.
I tend to think of time in a slightly different way, that matter is like a boat in a stream, where we think the boat is moving because of the water rushing past the hull, but the boat is anchored, and only the river runs. So time is only one moment in the now, yet all the events of matter are governed in such a way that we perceive - action and consequence, - past and future, movement, change etc.
