Time Considered as a Bowl of Poorly Cooked Porridge

Time is lumpy. You read it here first, this will be my official date and place of publication for Nobel prize purposes. Think about it. Nothing else in the Universe is evenly distributed. Not matter, not energy, not gravitation. We live in time, and cannot truly perceive it, although we feel its passage, like fish in the water, or birds in the air. I predict that when we are truly able to measure time (not just the passage of time) it will be found to have varying densities and currents. Our perception is good enough that we just barely notice its local variations--the time that seems fast, then slow even though we are not moving at relativistic speed, or not moving at all. I also predict that time will be found to be a quantum phenomenon, like light, and I hereby dub the so-far theoretical time-packet a "croton" (for photon+crouton).
