I'm trying to imagine a cinematic analogy between what we observe and Planck time intervals.
It's not to difficult to visualize, but it leads me to a question:
Are the scenes that flash before us at 5.391x10^-44
alternating "on" for one Tau then "off" for one Tau, like a squarewave?
Or could they be still scenes in a string of scenes with immeasurably small gaps?

I'm just speculating and would appreciate any illumination.
THANKS!

I'm just speculating and would appreciate any illumination.At what quantization would you prefer this illumination? Is 5.391x10^-44 seconds measurable? Is such a frequency of oscillation even detectable? If the synchronization is universe wide and commensurate with the quantization of space, could we detect the difference between such quantization and THE CONTINUUM?

Why does the movement through time need to be quantized at all?

I don't know. But I have this feeling that it makes more sense things are quantized and that that has something to do with information.
But for the moment this is just a feeling. I did ask more questions related to this subject in this section. I really hope there are some experts that can illuminate us.

Thanks Thomas. I go looking for those threads.

I guess what I was trying to ask was:
Is there an "off" period between time constants?
or
Are they spliced together in sequence without any distinct boundaries?
or
Is there a better explanation that eludes me?

Thanks folks!
