.Professor Sylvester James Gates, Jr. on Supersymmetry Theory (Short Version) The supersymmetry video above helped confirm and augment recent studies and ways of knowing. The following additional thoughts came to mind: Those honestly interested in knowledge should review:
(1) Key Definitions | What Is Science? Who Are Scientists?
(2) Expanded Definitions: Prehistory & Prehistoric Context
Until we respect the fundamentals and origins of any topic, optimal understanding will be as elusive as optimal use of a computer by one who puts components before the motherboard and one who gives credit to Bill Gates for the operating system.
This was demonstrated by the panelist who asserts that a mathematical equation is absent of time.
(1)This is not true as the equation is being performed or solved. Motion must be involved as one works through the equation.
(2)This is true once the equation is solved if the equation is singular and not connected to anything, otherwise the motion in the equation carries through to the next.
(3)In other words, this is not true if the equation itself is repeating or part of a series of ongoing equations then motion, thus time does exist.
Therefore, to describe the world and universe in terms of mathematical equations is not disallowed on the basis of time because the world is based on processes and these processes must be following a series of equations in order for consistencies and patterns to be present, even with built in variability. These processes, sequences and patterns are motion, thus time.

"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)
