Time is motion:
>Empty space = no possibility of time due to lack of object relativity [paradox!]
>Objects in space but no movement = no time. Motion is required for the manifest of object granularity.
>>Moving objects in space = time
We have linear experience of time, past; present; future
Linear time is perceived to accelerate or slow down according to the amount of motions the focal point keeps track of.
Therefore, the level of engrossment in an activity dictates the perception of time.
If time is indeed relative motion, then, thought itself, must be motion across the noetical dimension(s).
Thus, thoughts have different retrieval speeds due to requiring the formulation of a constituent series of thoughts prior to the desired 'insight'.
The decreased retrieval speeds through subsequent recollections, hint that less motions are occuring.
Thus, the presence of a more direct pathway, implies a level of disengagement from the pre-requisite thoughts.
Thus, the nature of thought is retroductive // constant simplification.
