Think of the time. What is "now"? As soon as you try to fix it, it is
past.

Now, induction needs a domain. It would appear that
WM's idea of a domain is understood in terms of time.


The question now posed to WM is this: If induction
does not need time, what *precisely* is needed by
induction?

And, if it is primitive in the sense that the question
above cannot be answered because there are no prior
assumptions, how do you represent it so that your readers
can understand that it is "the beginning" of your
philosophy?
