Time is the continued sequence of existence and events that occurs in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future. It is a component quantity of various measurements used to sequence events, to compare the duration of events or the intervals between them, and to quantify rates of change of quantities in material reality or in the conscious experience. Time is often referred to as a fourth dimension, along with three spatial dimensions. Continue reading

Time might be a mirage created by quantum physics, study suggests   Live Science - July 12, 2024

A new theory posited by theoretical physicists suggests time is simply an illusion created by the quantum world. In other words, it might not be a solid concept of the universe as previously thought   Geek Reporter - July 12, 2024

How logic alone may prove that time doesn't exist   PhysOrg - April 17, 2024

Modern physics suggests time may be an illusion. Einstein's theory of relativity, for example, suggests the universe is a static, four-dimensional block that contains all of space and time simultaneously - with no special "now." What's the future to one observer, is the past to another. That means time doesn't flow from past to future, as we experience it. This clashes with how time is conceptualized in other areas of physics, such as quantum mechanics, however. So is time an illusion or not? One approach to find out would be to try to prove that time is unreal using logic alone.

Physicists Discover Evidence of Time Being Reversible in Glass   Science Alert - January 30, 2024

An investigation into the way substances like glass age has uncovered the first physical evidence of a material-based measure of time being reversible. For the most part the laws of physics care little about time's arrow. Flip an equation describing the movement of an object and you can easily calculate where it started. We describe such laws as time reversible. While many individual laws thumb their nose at time, the fate of our Universe as a whole is dictated by the inevitable pull of chaos. In scientific terms, we might say time is a feature of the second law of thermodynamics - the tendency for isolated systems to be more disordered than they were in the past in ways that can't be easily rewound.

'Time Cells' in Human Brain Encode The Flow of Time, Study Finds   Science Alert - December 16, 2023

How does the human brain keep track of the order of events in a sequence? Research suggests that 'time cells' - neurons in the hippocampus thought to represent temporal information - could be the glue that sticks our memories together in the right sequence so that we can properly recall the correct order in which things happened.

Why The Future Might Not Be Where You Think It Is   IFL Science - November 25, 2023

The way we picture the future is influenced by the culture we grow up in and the languages we are exposed to.

If you view the past as in front of you and the future behind you - the front may represent "coming from the stars" and the future behind you representing physical reality catching up to you. It all goes to the way your brain is programmed in the simulation of reality and understanding that time is an illusion and it's movements are not linear but spiral (The Spirals of Time).

The Future Could Actually Be Far Behind You. It's a matter of perception

How you define past, present and future will depend on who you are and where you come from. The way we picture the future is influenced by the culture we grow up in and the languages we are exposed to. For many people who grew up in the UK, the US and much of Europe, the future is in front of them, and the past is behind them. People in these cultures typically perceive time as linear. They see themselves as continually moving towards the future because they cannot go back to the past.

In some other cultures, however, the location of the past and the future are inverted. The Aymara, a South American Indigenous group of people living in the Andes, conceptualize the future as behind them and the past in front of them.

Scientists discovered this by studying the gestures of the Aymara people during discussions of topics such as ancestors and traditions. The researchers noticed that when Aymara spoke about their ancestors, they were likely to gesture in front of themselves, indicating that the past was in front. However, when they were asked about a future event, their gesture seemed to indicate that the future was perceived as behind.

I created this file about Time - after 28 years of posting on Crystalinks about posting about the concept of time, but never really creating a file.

While looking for a pic for the file - most articles featured pocket watches. This took me to my pocket watches - both of which connect to my trip to Egypt in 2000.

The antique gold pocket watch above dates to 1887. It is American Waltham, numbered, and has 17 blue jewels. It was a gift from a man I met during that Egyptian adventure - Professor Mahmoud El Sherif - whose turned 81 today.

Our adventures over time - including the whole concept of time - one might consider timeless. On more than one occasion we saw each in another timeline - as a couple in Germany during World War II. To connect into the same grid simultaneously - as one might call a past life memory - speaks to truth through synchronicity or the gears of time.

After Sherif (as he prefers to be called) returned home - he discovered the clock in his bedroom was moving backwards. At the same time - my daughter Zsia, in NJ - noted that her antique grandfather clock was also moving backwards. It's all part of the surreal nature of reality in the Illusion of Time.

The blue pocket watch below has a storyline of its own - before and after my the trip to Egypt where I met Sherif. The Blue and the Gold. Sarah and Alexander.

Though I hadn't looked at that pocket watch in many years ... today it called to me. The battery had died somewhere along the way - stopping just before 12:00. I placed it on my black desk pad and snapped just one pic. I was wearing a turquoise silk blouse and black capris.

When I downloaded the picture, it produced a most interesting effect - three pyramids reminding me of the Giza plateau. Egypt for me has always been magical with ancient Egypt a connection to "the beginning" or first insert (Zep Tepi or First Time) in the simulation of reality. Perhaps that is why so many people have always been drawn to the secrets of ancient Egypt - pyramids above, and below that form the hourglass of time.

"Z" created the hourglass or concept of Time.

Some people are programmed with an innate awareness of the motions of time and physical reality. Others are chronically late which I believe is not their fault but part of ADD.

When one's mind allegedly "time travels" it's taking their conscious awareness into another grid of experience. Some people see this as time travel, others say it is moving to another dimension or the past and future. Whatever they want to name it.
