a long time ago on a coast far far... wait a sec...

i took a class at 'SC called "Epistemology and Metaphysics" and one of the topics we dealt with (with which i had the most fun) was matter sub-strata, or the basic blocks of what determined matter as being matter and kept it distinct from other matter...

one of these, i determined, was position in both time and space... relative to all other objects. basically... anything that can be called "itself" is always in a place in time, and relative to when else it was...

this has to do with the possibilities of teleportation and time travel, on a purely metaphysical level, but it lays down a working groundwork that allows time, and really any movement, to exist in space... as it were...
