Time-binding: " In 1921, Alfred Korzybski, a mathematician and scientist, classified Life with precise and accurate operational definitions of plants, animals, and humans. He defined the plants as energy-binders, the animals as space-binders, and we humans as time-binders".
Three things. One! Time-binding is what makes humans unique. Time is what we operate in. It's the axis that gives us our power. All other axis are symmetric; actions and behaviour are symmetric across physical location. Two! The theory of time-binding can produce a system of ethics, a morality that can scale up to global levels. Three! Korzybski, after defined time-binding, developed general semantics, a philosophy based on modern science that understands implicitly the important of language, knowledge and time.
