Live short talk given for the Astronomers Ball Royal Observatory Greenwich.

Home of course to 'Greenwich mean Time' - but time does not exist !

This talk was filmed on 2 cameras, locked down and hand held - full mix to be released at some point - for now this is the hand held 'stabilized' by youtube.
(static camera here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58OrLR...)

Covering John Harrison's famous clocks, as presented to the Royal Navy at Greenwich, and what these machines really proved and did not prove.
(+26 minutes in) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHu_h-...

Also how our internal 'memories' (and external records of all events) are formed 'timelessly' and do not prove the existence of a 'temporal past' despite what we may think,
(+15 mins) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHu_h-...

What starlight actually does, and does not show us, and how the Hubble deep field image shows us 'how things actually ARE' and not how things 'were', and how it proves things move and change, but not that the temporal past - or TIME - actually 'exist'
(+19 mins) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHu_h-...

The Present - How moving things don't prove the existence of time, and how they don't 'take time to move',
(+24 mins) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHu_h-...

The Future - why it does not 'constantly arrive'.
(+28 mins) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHu_h-...

and finally how we think we can see the past but not the future - but are always only ever seeing 'NOW'
(+ 30 mins) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHu_h-...

- and then a plea for help including... -Contacts, emails etc -Speaking engagements -Book editors and reviewers -Literary agent - psychiatric help
