I show that time is an absolute through the identity principle. Everything is what it is and happens in the time it happens absolutely. The time is absolute and all ratios to other events are absolute. All events are absolute in summation and so with the whole of the cosmos. I suggest that a feeling of time distinct from events is possible by focusing on the sentiment itself, a seamless generalized consciousness. For example, the feeling starts by contrast to another feeling without objects or events marking its onset. This is the start point without external juxtaposition, only its own feeling. So feelings could sense time without objects. Moreover, an innate understanding of past, present and future are immanent with and necessary to the passage of time for time to exist in the mind. The feeling is not time but time is present in the feeling and indistinguishable from it. We do not define feelings, we only apply tag words to states of consciousness that we assume or hope other people understand. Changes in feeling can be parallel to external events, but the events are not necessary to the change in absolute terms. Prior to my proof of time as an absolute, I briefly demonstrate the proof of identity as a valid and proven axiom. The axiom is proven within and by the construction of its definition and by immanent observation of its manifestation in the cosmos. I briefly outline my theorem of motion in the final chapter.

About the Author
I write for my health and the health of the world. Often the cure rivals the disease in grief and aches. My writing career started at twelve when I attempted to write a sequel to Huckleberry Finn but never finished it. My writings have included poetry, plays, a novel, non-fiction and writing newsletters for here and there. Recently, I am dabbling into short stories. Apart from newsletters, nothing has been published in print. I bought an audio recording of one of my poems but threw it away in disgust due to an inappropriate reading by the narrator. 'Contra Pantheism...' was my first eBook. About a hundred eBooks have been published since including some books of verse, and my essays collected into five volumes, and one volume of collected poems. A few other types of literature are on my list of published works. My essays deal with fundamental questions of philosophy as well as natural philosophy (science.) On the whole, my works are as far above the writings of Plato and Aristotle as the material power of the United States is over that of Ancient Greece. I once asked myself if I had ever written anything memorable, but couldn't remember exactly what I had written. I started to check my manuscripts but stopped as it seemed the answer to the question was obvious. Gore Vidal mentioned in one of his memoirs that writers tend to forget what they write and are a bad source to ask about their works. Gore knew a lot of writers. I have not and may have been a bit hard on myself. Apart from self-improvement and maybe making a few bucks, my main goal is to bring about a golden age for mankind. Being a man, this sounds appealing. It is pointless to desist and all small measures are worth the effort. Albert Camus thought suicide the only serious philosophical question. He was a fool and died young. Suicide is a waste of time. The most important functional question is: How do I get what I want? The one question that trumps this is the ultimate question of intent: What should I want? As Goethe pointed out: Be careful what you wish for in your youth, you might get it in middle age.
