Recent treatments of time in husserl purport to give an account of the most fundamental aspects of what husserl terms inner time-Consciousness, The immanent temporality that is the primal constitutive source of human experience. A major difficulty with these presentations of husserl's time-Theory is that they continue to use theoretically reductionist models for time, Based on a sense of "flow" that is drawn from objective-Physical space and objects extended through such space. Such treatments fail to capture the very heart of the flowing-Processing itself. To clarify this point, This paper investigates the two-Fold description of inner time-Consciousness that gives the primary spatial model of flow--In fact, Of two intersecting flows. Next, It considers the manner in which aspects of immanent temporality are overlooked in this spatial model. Finally, Another spatial model is proposed, One that can harness the complexity of husserl's theory of immanent temporality and explain the very source of process as processing
