If any of you are interested in alternate notions of time that are scientifically based but compatible with mysticism, I recommend Julian Barbour.

I received my copy of Boomeritis on Friday, but have only been able to read the first few pages. It seems excellent so far. You have to love, if only for its uniqueness, a philosophically-oriented novel that explicity starts out from Bill Joy's article "The Future Doesn't Need Us" and, implicitly, from the cybernetic/AI vision of liberation through escape from carbon-based bodies. It also offers a new and philosophically improved version of the Turing Test.
