    They all exist in the present moment, with our realizing it or not :)

    The time you are born into determines the level of education you experience, the technological development of your people and the size, social and cultural development of your community.  The environment around your place of birth will have helped shape that culture and may have a major effect upon your future career opportunities, whilst the place itself will likely determine your first language, social and cultural identification and national allegiances.

    Our identity is formed from the sum total of our experiences as filtered through our perceptions.  Thus, were it possible for two absolutely identical twins to be born a hundred years and a thousand miles apart, they would be entirely different people by the time they were grown due to the overwhelming differences in their lives caused by spatial and temporal differences in their places of birth.

    Short version: time and place are major factors in the formation of identity.

  • Earth is the only place where these things are necessary.  Although 'identity' does seem to be in a crisis mode.  It will be a very dismal day when it gets tossed in the same landfill as with respect.   :D

    Self awareness. Without self awareness time and place are meaningless although it can be argued that they still exist. Without self awareness and its perceptions identity doesn't exist

    They're all nouns.  Time and place can also be verbs too.

    They form the three specific aspects of any existence.

    There's only one of each, one unlike any other, one never to be ever again.

     They constitute the classical forms by which Kantian mankind develop perception (space, time (and causality (---> identity per relations of pluralities))).

    They are all man-made (and thus artificial) constructs designed to quantify existence.
