I have to say it, you’re extraordinary pomposity is embarrassing. I do
not believe there is one singe member of this list so stupid as to
believe that place can be describe with one dimension. Sprinkling a very
very very stupid idea with intelligent sounding words like “4D Space
Time Coordinates” does not make an idiotic crackpot idea one bit more

my clock jump ahead 8 hours. Big deal.

Bullshit! I can not see one tinny tiny bit of difference between your

cosmological importance that can not be detected with the scientific
method; and that my friend is pure undiluted premium grade bullshit.
