I am?

I recall something Richard Feynman said "[If] I couldn't reduce it to
the freshman level [then] that means we really don't understand it."

I Googled and I found a similar quote from Einstein: "“If you can't
explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough".

Apply that criteria to fractal time and you see that we don't really
understand.  Which in turn means it doesn't make a lot of sense.
