Well, it's a line of argument I suppose but, to take one example, assuming you think wave phenomena are real, how could they exist without time?
exchemist, I wanted to ask you about this when you posted it but started thinking (getting confused) about something else. I was just grappling with the present being unmeasurable. I know you see the argument. I was saying that everything exists as matter or energy and that is all. A wave can exist in the present as far as I can perceive, just like anything else. It has a human history only if we choose to record it.
I accept the block view of spacetime (but I think at the moment I would prefer to call it simply space - without time).I accept now that clocks slow down due to relative motion, I accept that everything slows due to relative motion, but perhaps time can still be nothing more than a human fallacy. I see that fast and slow are real effects that can be compared - with a standard clock beat. But time is still suspiciously human for me - unless you can enlighten me? I sense that you have an argument about waves that is more profound?
