" Time "
It is my opinion, and the Tetrahedraverse concept fairly dictates same, that motion precedes time.
We have a network of dimensionless pionts, of primarily vertex order twelve.
Using a snall piece of that (refer to the "icosahedro(not)"), look at how the pionts are situated with respect to one another.
First, we know that the pionts are dimensionless, which in essence means "not physical" and "not of any substance," so they themselves are not mass (matter) or energy (radiation).
If they're not, then what is?
Observe in the "problem of the 13 spheres" version of the icsoahedro(not), hence in every place in the network with varying placements and varying amounts, that there are GAPS where balls (in the case of the spheres-version) cannot touch one another, and in the "stick" version (icosahedro(not)), some "distances" between pionts are longer than others.
This is "Gap," and "Gap" is physics --matter and energy-- where "time" must operate.
These gaps are, in my 13-piont-subset stainless steel model, represented by the fat-rusty segments.
(In naked spacetime, uninhabited by matter, the gaps would constitute the "vacuum energy.")
Since I believe that motion precedes time, examine what happens (and WHERE it happens) when a piont moves:
Obviously, the piont itself moves, taking (or, "making") an increment of "time" to do so.
Not so obviously, this "time" appears in whatever gaps surround the piont, thus in the real spacetime represented by the network.
That is, there are --in general-- twelve dirensions around any one piont in spacetime in which time can appear; twelve increments of dimension in spacetime, only some of which may exist since the pionts are packed as tightly as possible, around the piont that is moving.
Now, the piont can't move very much, it being "caged" by the twelve pionts around it, so in order to get a measuement of "time" across space, we would, in a manner similar to "summing over histories," have to sum up the individual gap-effects of piont movement 'from here' to 'there'.
Logically, one might think that if a piont moves (say, back-and-forth in order to allow an increment of Gap to pass) very quickly, not much "time" is generated by the movement, and conversely, if it moves slowly, more "time" is generated, in the Gaps surrounding the moving piont.
We should expect to see this anyway (albeit not on the tiny scale of which we speak because we can't check it out there), since Einstein's general relativity theory predicts that when things move very fast, "time" slows down (Tverse: there isn't much of it being generated), and when things move slowly, "time" moves more rapidly (Tverse: there is more of it being generated).
