Personal thoughts about time

Past Present and the Future are in the state of `Now`, there is no gap or `Time` between these 3-theoretical stages of existence, they are `One` and the `Now`. 

Humankind invented `Time` and when we did this we automatically created the 3-stages of existence that like `Time` do not exist, so we have:- 

Time = Past, Present and Future, which in turn gives us :- 

"Past Time" "Present Time" and "Future Time", none of which really exist because they were invented by the human to try to make sense of our Universe and existence, to bring order to our lives. 

Even though we have these 3-stages we are still no closer to understanding our existence or the Universe. 

Remember the Universe is in no hurry, the Universe has no sense of `"Time"`, `"Time"` is a product of us humans, we have caused it to surround our world, we can even reach a limited distance into outer space with our "Time" based technology and that distance is but a pin prick compared with the size of the Universe. In effect our concept of "Time" keeps us prisoner on this planet, you may rightly ask the question " If `Time does not exist then why do we grow old?" Well ageing is really another part of the illusion, along with our invention of "Time", when we talk of age we are describing a "Time Period" such as old age or young age, again our invention, and because age is linked to "Time" neither really exist. I think in order to understand this we have to forget "Time," our life is more like an explosion of existence in the "Now" but if you are at the centre of that explosion, as we are, everything appears to move slowly. Take our planet Earth, it is spinning and moving through space at tremendous speed but because we are at the centre of that explosion of movement the Earth appears to move slowly. Birth, life and old age take place all in the "Now", no spaces no gaps no time period. Age to me is just a collapsing of the material (our body) that was home to our soul and gave it a brief existence into this universe. Incalculable number of events take place in the universe in the "Now", it is only our illusion of "Time" that separate`s those events. 

Just look around your house, notice that your family are doing different things all at the same instant whether sleeping, eating, talking or playing music , even if a family member is 6-miles away doing the shopping the distance does not alter the fact that everything is being done in the same instant, the "Now". Bring "Time" into the equation and said family member will be back in 2-hours, but remove "Time" from the equation and our shopper is already back home in the same "Now" that she was doing the shopping , to take it a step further we are already dead even though we feel very alive. In reality our soul only gets a brief existence in this universe but down here in the explosion of life our soul has had 80-years of existence, as I have stated things move slowly at the centre of an explosion. But in reality 80-years cannot exist as it is linked to "Time" and we invented "Time.". 

I know it's impossible to imagine a period where "Time" does not exist, we have, from birth, instantly had our existence linked to "Time", it is so ingrained into our everyday lives we could not function without it , but it's an illusion and as I said at the beginning we are truly a prisoner of that illusion. 

Everything ever created by humanity all came from the "Mind", we had a thought or idea then used our creativeness to bring that idea to life in the material world. So is it possible we can think of an idea to build a means of traversing the vast distances of outer space, if we carry on using our concept of "Time" I doubt we will get very far. I feel we need to shake off the shackles of "Time". Perhaps Wormholes are the answer?, to be any place in the Universe in an instant, or will our "Mind / Soul" be the ultimate mode of travel to be at our destination not in an instant but in the "Now" because our "Mind / Soul knows no limit, it is not governed by our concept of "Time" but when "Mind" becomes conscious in the physical material body it has to engage with the human invention of "Time". When we dream we have no sense of "Time", when you waken from sleep you have no knowledge where 6-hours of slumber have gone because when you sleep you have entered a realm where "Time" does not exist, could our dreams be "Timeless Travel" into other existences. Because let's face it a "Dream" is a name we have given to a state of mind that we do not fully understand. We name everything we see because we do not understand them so we create an understanding by giving what we do not understand a name, and by naming everything we create a reality. So where did the concept of "Time" come from, what did we not understand which caused us to name something "Time". Let's look at it this way, make believe you have just come into existence and are fully aware, you need to give yourself a reality so you name everything you come into contact with, you see such some debris , you call it a stone, you then notice you are walking on something and you call it grass , you see another life form so you call it a bird, you see orbs in the sky you call them the sun and moon. But! where do you see "Time"?.......you do not, "Time" is an idea born from the study of the Sun and its relationship to Earth`s orbital movement, you cannot grasp "Time" or put in a jar and look at it, it does no exist in this material Universe but we pretend it does. 

One has to wonder about our Alien visitors, what concept of "Time" do they use if any, or do they operate outside the boundaries set by a concept, have they tapped into the secret of travelling from galaxy to galaxy without the hindrance of "Time", to just be there in the "Now".
