preprint description
Discrete time has, rightly, not generally been taken very seriously with the standard conceptual framework for understanding reality. I say ‘rightly’ only because when fully understood, discrete time seems like nonsense or an impossibility from the perspective of our common sense experience of time. Yet perhaps the standard conceptual framework which is assumed is incorrect. In this paper I will outline an understanding of the nature of time which demands a questioning of reductionism and therefore challenges this framework, and claim it is an inadequate conceptual framework for describing and understanding reality. In particular, I outline here from empirical observation how the phenomena of Quantum Entanglement can support a conceptually irreducible reality.
