Neither?

Although time is something we describe with prepositions(to, at, by, on, about, before, near, will, until, near, during, after...) or with helping verbs (will, had, were), this does not mean that a certain time is located *somewhere* or located in the same way that something is located in space or in a spatial relation to something else.

(Erm, I think...)

"So, time is just a linear series of singularities."

As a "metaphysical" phenomenon, time is an illusory grammatical illusion.

Grammatically, time is something we "mention in passing" in order to coordinate our activities, tell stories, and/or distinguish things we do, see, say, or have read/heard of.

I blogged your blog, again.

I tried to link it, but that would not work.

I meant to use a question mark when I first wrote the statement:

"So, time is just a linear series of singularities?"

I was thinking of a "singularity" as a useful fiction.

Thanks, and I agree.

I'll edit my blog post, and add a question mark.

I once spoke with my high school math teacher about the infinite density of a black hole. He noted that this was just an artifact of the mathematics used.
