B-theorists reject “spatialization of time”. The aim of this talk is to  
propose what is called “C-theory”, which can be regarded as radical  
spatialization of time. Although my usage of ‘C-theory’ owes its genesis to

there is no objective difference between time and space. Temporal direction  
is just a projection of our agentic perspective. This talk consists of two
