Time and its instrumentality

Time is an object that is a consistent feature on the practice of various creative endeavours. I utilise the component of time as an instrument that allays a granularity. The language of time, however is generally viewed a semiotic use of time. I visualise time as an instrument such that it's object-qualification is a composition of itself. Time conveys a propositional attitude insofar that there is a key signature for its use according to differing levels of perception. However, in the event that something is recorded in sense datum as "attitudinal" or when time has a contextual frame, we notice the action of time as an ontology. In my practice of honing time, I have extrapolated from the idea of "Gedanken" (or the appeal to abstract intensional entities) to give a better understanding for the way memories are consistently spatial. But, I venture to explore this to a point that satisfies a Kantian notion for "sense and reference".

The carry-over from Frege's notion of "Gedanken" and Kantian "pure intuition" is with some arithmetic in some form. We can suppose, however that Kant is attached to the truths are taken to be denoted from a small set of axioms. This, to some degree brings me into the object of time. This is due to the frame that a Frege "Gedanken" is given. Now, my approach to this is to reach an argument about "Sinne" and the facet of timelessness or stillness and the impact it serves with respect to mental events. This, however can suppose that a "Sinne"is bound to a universal type signature for different modalities. The "Sinne" is impervious to being altered in any way despite the external actions that exist. So, I endeavor to expose a conduit for the logicism of time that draws from a Kantian "non-conceptualism" to underscore how the ineffable experience is an ontological category that is also diagrammatic.

Going into the object of time as a substitution for space is a direction considered. That is, if you take time as an instrument and adapt it to types; such a minimal set of axioms apply. Taking time and representing it through a diagram, which is described causally through a birth and death string of actions, thus sets a proxy for a divergent ontology. Though, the idea of having an ontology defined for time requires a algebraic expression for the relating of events and their noumena. But, my interest is to deviate from this in a rigid form and talk about the way a matrix for time and space is reified. That is, when an event of a priori has some identity, to what extent does its meaning purvey space or indicate a clearness in relation to space. This relation, however is a dual sided ideal aligned with "representing" temporal events. My attraction as an outlet is through the stillness or pure intuition that rejects formal axiomatization. My focus of recent is with shopping malls since the object of activity is universal.
