I am happy to say, I've landed in the future of my past, which is the present. The seconds it took to type that belongs now to the past. What I'm about to say is in the future until I say it. Time is topical. Timely, you might say. Remember time-travel? Remember thinking you could go back and visit your grandfather?
It would seem if indeed, a time-travel machine could be built, and someone went back in time, well I think the universe would implode, disappear, something. It's like, if you go back in time, you're ABSENT from your OWN time, which is now affecting that time. Incorrectly, I might add, because if you were ONCE there, you should stlll BE there even if you die. That's another discussion altogether about time - how do death and time connect? Anyway...
If I leave this time, I'd have affected it. Would people know I once existed here? I go into the past. I meet my grandfather and kill him. Which means of course, I never existed. But if I went back in time, I had to exist on SOME plane, right? So if I retreat into time, kill ANY one, displace ANY thing, I have affected time itself in a way that would put the universe on a curving spin. I wouldn't have existed at all, when you examine it closely. So I couldn't have built that time machine and killed my grandfather, thereby erasing my own self from time. I only know I'm here because I take up mass. The universe is made of plasmic mass and matter which gives birth to gravity. We need to understand time in better detail I'd say, because we're way behind in so much.
Before, I talked about how advanced the ancient Egyptians were. Far more than we are now, it's true, they were far ahead in their particular time. We seem to be going backward, though we can microwave our food we can't seem to keep our water pure. This PC I'm using, what a miracle of human ingenuity. But this cold is killing me, and I can't cure it. Outer space, inner space, and the time it all takes. Look at outer space, we've managed to put artificial eyes beyond our atmosphere, too polluted to allow us good vision, and we now look LIGHT YEARS INTO THE PAST when gazing into outer space. We turn around and examine inner space - using CT-scans and functional MRIs, we can map out our entire form down to the tiniest cell, then we can pull that nucleus apart and take out our DNA, the very blueprint of our species, and change it. Attenuate it. The molecular world of inner space relies on time too, and if we're out of our time, where exactly are we? Some would say why do we have to know....well that's how we got to the moon. We have to know.
Suppose I go into the future, instead of the past. I meet my grandchildren's children and cause them to perish. Did I ever live then? How would they have even been born for me to visit them? Could I have ever lived if my great great grandchildren don't exist in the future? But I know I'm here now - so if that's factual from all I use to measure my existence (my senses) then why can't I be somewhere else at the same time? Time again. TIME. Here's something spooky you might like:
People who claim to see ghosts actually are seeing SOME thing. It's connected to time. Right now, we're leaving our imprint on the fabric of time. In say, 150 years, someone may walk through the space you're occupying now, and sense or see you there, in some form. Ectoplasm maybe. Soft silky smoke-like gray matter. But IS it matter? Is it mass? Does it take up space therefore is influenced by time? Does your head hurt yet lol?
The rolling of rock and magma deep below our feet can affect how we feel, like a magnet. The EMF, the electro-magnetic field that surrounds us, and our planet, can be affected by things like movement of that planet, and people see things they can't explain - call them spirits, ghosts, remnants. Mostly they're seeing something that happened already, left its imprint in that time, and doesn't quite make it to the next level or "plane" of time, perhaps. I'm not sure why it "stays around" but many have anthropomorphic theories that are as possible as any other. We can quantify this, measure it. Using light. The universal spectrum of light. Is there heat wherever there's light? Does there HAVE to be heat to have light, or is it the other way round? Would all mass collapse into itself like a gigantic black hole where even light couldn't escape if we managed to stop time?
What was once science FICTION is fact as we keep learning. I know I like to think I've been alive before, incarnated again here now, and perhaps will over and over. The meaning isn't as interesting as the idea itself, I'd say.
When I look at the stars I'm looking far into the past, into the realm of time as it once was. As this universe continues to expand, in time and space, perhaps in billlions of years it will find its level and cease to expand - will it actually stop? Would that mean TIME would stop? Or would it then start collapsing in on itself, causing time to go backward? COULD that happen?
My head is spinning with the joy of so much information and questions and I could ask them for ALL time, but another aspect of time is nudging me - time for a break.
