In this article I argue that whatever the preferred construal of time is, it isalways further reducible to one that assumes tenseless reality. In particular,I argue for the superiority of an approach according to which the differencesbetween the future, present and past are quantitative on the level of basic buildingblocks over a more intuitive view on which the differences are, as on thesurface level, qualitative. I demonstrate that a qualitative construal is reducibleto a quantitative one and that as such the latter fares better with the B-theoretic,tenseless outlook on reality.
