Re: 1190: "Time"

As far as Time's time is concerned, I think it's safe to say, based on stars and planets, that either Time is taking place in a real time & place in the far (13000-ish year) future, or it's in a made-up Randallverse. {P1079} Wait a minute. Are you implying it could take place 13000 years in the...
