[first paragraph] I will describe two non-standard ways of thinking about time. Th e fi rst is ubiquitous in animal cognition. I will call it ‘phase time'. Suppose for exam- ple you consider a hibernating animal. Th is animal might have representa- tion of the various seasons of the year, and modulate its actions dependent on the season. But it need have no distinction between the winter of one year and the winter of another; it thinks of time only in terms of repeatable phases.
