Time is the physical manifestation of counting. We describe time in terms of its mathematical properties. All mathematics are expressions in the counting layer. The counting layer is the propagation of particulars. The counting layer unfolds on top of Space.
Space is the physical manifestation of OR Logic together with AND Logic. This description is supported by the double-slit experiment. Space unfolds on top of a NONE Logic.
NONE Logic is the physical manifestation of (O)neness, which is another word for (N)othingness, which is another word for a pure and absolutely symmetrical (E)xistence. This description is supported by observations of vacuum energy and the cosmological constant.
Existence is a Signal that encompasses all Signals. Existence is Everything. It is the Alpha and the Omega.
Beings, having gained Consciousness, ask the question of Meaning. Existence provides the Signal which is the meaningful answer.
To receive, perceive, and understand the answer from Existence, Beings must be open to the Experience of the Signal. All experiences are Simulations which unfold above the counting layer. These simulations move from Illusion (or Imagination) to Reality and back again. In order for there to be experiences, there must be Time.
