    Interesting. Unfortunately the concord is no longer in service. I wonder if Physicist Julian B. Barbour will present?  His assertion is that time is a fiction. (Hence his book "The end of time"). Time is just our view of sequences of events. He feels that this will simplify the theory of everything.

    While following David Pike's post entitled 'Air Cdre John Mitchell'  to the rin.org.uk site, I also found this interesting forthcoming conference posted there on "The Science of Time".

    For those living in New England, it looks to be a worthwhile event.

    Partial quote from the site:

    The Science of Time will be hosted by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, MA (USA).
