I'm curious to know how many Time Dimensions the people on this forum would choose to live in.

I prefer MANY, as it would provide me more choices in life. Not only a time line, but a time plane, containing infinite time-lines. Even further would be a time cube. But, when you think about it, time is more circular, with cyclic patterns. It's more helical than anything else. Then this helix could be part of another, even grander helix, such as the trajectory of our sun around the galaxy.

This strikes me as something similar to Hindu mythology. In Hindu mythology, it is believed that the universe keeps getting created and destroyed and regular intervals of time, and in each cycle, similar events would take place though not the same. There would be slight variations. I first thought of it as a time circle, but a time helix seems to fit much better. What you say about the grander helix is also there as 36000 of these cycles make another bigger cycle of creation and destruction.

Yeah, that's how everything would look to me, from the most outside perspective of the universe. Standing outside time and space, and looking down on it all, I imagine helices within helices, as the pathways of the large structure. And nested within that would be us, tiny strand segments of cyclic biology, entangled with the large helix of out planet. It's very fractal-like.
