Time from the inside out

Abstract
My main objective, in this paper, is to present at least a rough sketch of a new model for understanding time. Since many people are quite content with the model that they have, it will be worth while to show why a new model might be desirable, or even necessary. As it happens, looking at the problems involved in the more usual conception of time leads one naturally to look in certain directions for solutions, and such an introduction can therefore explain why the new model looks the way it does. With all this in mind, then, this paper will be broken down into three parts. In the first part, I’ll try to show that no-one has ever experienced time as such. In the second part, I shall argue that one good reason for this is that there is no such thing as time proper. Finally, in the third part, I’ll try to reassemble what’s left of the conception of time after all this demolition, and I’ll offer a positive model (albeit rather vague) of what I prefer to call "temporality".
