Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

TIME is not real - it is a human construct to help us differentiate between now and our perception of the past, an equally astonishing and baffling theory states.

Some physicists think that if the universe started collapsing instead of expanding, then time would go backwards, but it seems that we would still perceive time as going forward. As time slips back each second, we would perceive this as the new now, while completely forgeting the moment before. We would still have memories of our past, which we would slowly forget as we go through each moment. This is the complete opposite of time going forwards. Instead of remembering, we are forgetting, which is the opposite of a world going forward in time.

As we approach the speed of light time slows down, but we wouldn't notice it and everything would seem to be normal. If time were to skip backwards, would we notice that either?

But what if there is no time at all, and everything is here at once?

Massachusetts Institute of Technology physicist Max Tegmark, told space.com: "We can portray our reality as either a three-dimensional place where stuff happens over time, or as a four-dimensional place where nothing happens [‘block universe’] — and if it really is the second picture, then change really is an illusion, because there's nothing that's changing; it's all just there — past, present, future.

“We have the illusion, at any given moment, that the past already happened and the future doesn't yet exist, and that things are changing.

Id like to see him design and build a drawbridge...

I would like to see Matt design and build that drawbridge. Especially since you cannot check the oil on your own car.

Matt Franko said...

In Newtonian physics, we have in the numerator of the Force equation the kg-m (aka the Newton for gravity)... its a product of mass x distance...

but we don't say "there is no such thing as mass or distance!" as a result... just because we multiply these abstractions in the numerator...

I think what it is is that these people have Art Degrees in the Discipline of Physics... f-ed up people... the only place they can really work is in the Academe...

Matt Franko said...

and this is revealing from Kevin he says.... out of all of this... if you can believe it..:

"We would still have memories of our past,"

WTF does that have to do with anything??????

We didnt create the abstraction of time (second/minute/hour/day/month/qtr/year...) so you could "remember your past!" or wtf....

thats NOT what it was created for...

get a f-ing grip...

Meher Baba in The Everything and the Nothing, 33:

"There cannot be anything hidden from the One who is everywhere present, for He is everywhere. And it naturally follows that when there cannot be anything hidden from this One He must also be All-Knowing, knowing everything.
The infinite-Knowing is 'seeing' everything at one and the same time, and seeing it NOW. It is that Knowledge which does not begin and does not end; which is indivisible and continuous, and to which nothing can be added and from which nothing can be subtracted.

It is that Knowledge which makes God at this moment know that which He knew when it occurred countless aeons ago, and makes Him know that which will occur countless aeons hence; that Knowledge which makes everything known to God simultaneously and NOW. It is the Knowledge of the Perfect Masters and the Avatar.

In terms simpler to you it means that which you as individuals know at this moment I knew aeons ago, and what you individuals in ages to come will be knowing at a particular moment, I know now."

So, if I'm going back on time, then one day I'm going to end up back in Deacon Street.

Yeah, when you can invent your own god, anything is possible for him/her.

But what good is a figment of your imagination? Can that save anyone?

Otoh, the God of the Bible does NOT claim to know everything, e.g. appointing and then rejecting Saul as king over Israel. Also, Jeremiah 17:9-10:

“The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick;
Who can understand it?

“I, the Lord, search the heart,
I test the mind,
Even to give to each man according to his ways,
According to the results of his deed"

What need then for God to search and test and if He knows everything?

Matt: you have a practical point, but quantum technology ALSO works, and -- religious person that I have taken you to be (?) -- this is basically what St Thomas Aquinas said in the Summa Contra Gentiles.

Marian Ruccius said...

Think: quantum computing, quantum sensors, quantum cryptography, quantum simulation, quantum metrology and quantum imaging—based on properties of quantum mechanics, especially quantum entanglement, quantum superposition and quantum tunnelling.

Tom Hickey said...

To experience your Real Self is the Goal. You are and you will ever be. There is no one else but you. Instantly, in a flash, you will know everything, including why you have no beginning and no end. But this knowing will have nothing whatsoever to do with mind, or reason, or logic. It is beyond mind. You know the answer to everything, you know that nothing has happened and nothing will ever happen. You then experience bliss; you become All-Powerful, All-Knowing.

Baba had this discourse on Omnipresence read:

There cannot be anything hidden from the one who is omnipresent. And as there cannot be anything hidden from such a one, he must be omniscient. He is All-Knowing, knowing everything.

Thus it follows that he must be knowing how to do everything. He will say: “I know how to create everything. I know how to destroy everything. I know how to preserve everything. I know how to do everything.”

Thus he who is omniscient is inevitably omnipotent. His being omnipresent made him omniscient, and this also made him omnipotent. In short, to be omnipresent is to be both omniscient and omnipotent simultaneously. All the three attributes of God are linked with one another, giving rise to the infinite bliss of God. One who is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent cannot help but be in the infinitely blissful state.

Baba further stated:

What happened yesterday? Nothing! What will happen tomorrow? Nothing! Everything happens now. This experience of everything happening at this very moment is dnyan – knowledge, wisdom. It has nothing to do with the mind, or reason. One who had this experience of eternal knowledge – dnyan – is wise. Mind says: “It was yesterday that Baba was here, Baba gave us a discourse and we all listened, and the children had a party.” And mind also says: “Tomorrow, we will have a performance.”

But one rare being knows that there is no such thing as yesterday or tomorrow. There is the Eternal Now from the beginningless beginning to the endless end. There is one moment only – the Eternal Now. He who experiences the Eternal Now finds all doubts, worries, everything dissolved like mist, and remains in eternal bliss.

Matt’s Art Degree conspiracy again.

Peter Pan said...

So what is the aging process?
Why do we measure it in Earth orbits?

Peter Pan said...

Why do humans, on average, get 70 laps around the sun?
Why do some Bristlecone Pine trees get over 5000?
Why are the cells that line our digestive tract, get only 8 hours (1/1095th of a lap)?

It may be a trivial measurement, yet it is an event that is observable and quantifiable. Without this measurement, Global Positioning systems would not work.

Kaivey said...

They say butterflies live for a few days to a few weeks. As a kid, I thought that was hard, but if time is in our minds,then two days might a very long time for a butterfly.

Peter Pan said...

I'm not asking about our perception of time, which varies with age and mood.

If time isn't real, then what are we measuring when we engage in 'timekeeping'?
How does the claim that "time isn't real", alter the functioning of an atomic clock?
