On Time

I don't know if this is more about time, or algorithms...

ALGORITHM, a definition:
In logic, the time that an algorithm requires to complete cannot be measured, as it is not apparently related with our customary physical dimension.

The word 'algorithm' is Persian in origin, and sounds like Muhammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī. Don't forget that Persia/Arabia/Middle East-ish, was the center of science around 1000 CE.
