@dagatsoin you mean the alan kay post? yep, it's a bit abstract, I think reading the scientific article linked in the post is a good way to better understand what he means. Also I suppose I'm missing some of the background that makes what he says fully meaningful :)

It seems it is about the issue of how to represent the time in a distributed system, is it ?

nope, it's more about how to control the side effects and their impacts. With this control, you can easily have transactional semantic, undo behaviour, etc
the paper if very easy to read
