I never have. Just seen a preview for a new season of it as I'm watching TV right now.

During the years I used methods, some of them very old, to lead people to being their future selves.
The results of this has led to my belief that time though real can be bend just like space and that there are many separate realities and we people have the ability to pick one of these realities as our reality.
All these realities are connected and connected to one, the more you tune in to this one, the more you are in balance, the more future and past will disappear, leaving the experience now.

So to me this is not wierd, wierd is (in my view) that people hang on to the past, play the same record over and over again and wonder why their live keeps being a pile of shit.

Nice post ;)

My own thoughts on past present and future...

The past is a figment of our imagination, the future is something that is completely intangible; it does not exist. We live in an ever changing present and collectively have the ability to influence it. Time is a human theory which we came up with because our material selves are temporary, it is also one of the largest constraints we have ever constructed around ourselves.
I would love to live in a world where there are only two things I could relate to time; can see and can't see.

You guys seem pretty stoked with this so I was wondering if any of you have seen The Quantum Activist?

time is directly related to how one perceives it,ie ,when we change our perception of time,we also change how it affects us,how fast it goes or how slow,[think ,busy at work,time goes faster,not busy at work,time goes slower,is it time or us doing that,its us.]
they are only rediscovering what the ancients already knew,as usual they claim it as there own,but its all been known before.
with the power of soul,anything is possible
with the power of you,anything that you wanna do

An interesting post regarding the human concept of time and what human's perceive as strange behavioural pattens contained within that concept - which they themselves, created - a bit like an artist painting a still life and believes he can smell the flowers he has placed upon the canvas.

http://africanhistory.about.com/od/egyptology/a/EgyptFatherOfTime.htm

The Ancient Egyptians are credited with creating the modern concept of time, designed and developed over many centuries (or maybe it 'evolved'), accountable to the human need for progression and the measurement of human existance.

So 'time' apparantly is a human creation?

Stephen Hawkin's arguements and thoughts are essential reading on this subject.

The Arrow of Time

Imaginary time is indistinguishable from directions in space. If one can go north, one can turn around and head south; equally, if one can go forward in imaginary time, one ought to be able to turn around and go backward. This means that there can be no important difference between the forward and backward directions of imaginary time. On the other hand, when one looks at "real" time, there's a very big difference between the forward and backward directions, as we all know. Where does this difference between the past and the future come from? Why do we remember the past but not the future?

Disorder increases with time because we measure time in the direction in which disorder increases.

The progress of the human race in understanding the universe has established a small corner of order in an increasingly disordered universe. If you remember every word in this book, your memory will have recorded about two million pieces of information: the order in your brain will have increased by about two million units. However, while you have been reading this book, you will have converted at least a thousand calories or ordered energy, in the form of food, into disordered energy, in the form of heat that you lose to the air around you by convection and sweat. This will increase the disorder of the universe by about twenty million million million million units - or about ten million million million times the increase in order in your brain - and that's if you remember everything in this book.


http://www.generationterrorists.com/quotes/abhotswh.html

So the 'illusiion' theory of time (i.e. it has been artificially created by the human need for measuring and keeping order within the human existance) is also interesting.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=is-time-an-illusion

Time is an especially hot topic right now in physics. The search for a unified theory is forcing physicists to reexamine very basic assumptions, and few things are more basic than time.
Some physicists argue that there is no such thing as time. Others think time ought to be promoted rather than demoted. In between these two positions is the fascinating idea that time exists but is not fundamental. A static world somehow gives rise to the time we perceive.
Philosophers have debated such ideas since before the time of Socrates, but physicists are now making them concrete. According to one, time may arise from the way that the universe is partitioned; what we perceive as time reflects the relations among its pieces.


If you discuss 'time', you must look at the methods available for it's measurement, such as 'clocks' - this site is quite interesting in that aspect.

http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/06/historic-clocks/?pid=1447&pageid=64756&viewall=true

and of course, as lowsix pointed out, there's always the 'cat':

Schrodinger's Cat.
A cat is placed in a box, together with a radioactive atom. If the atom decays, a hammer kills the cat; if the atom doesn't decay, the cat lives. As the atom is considered to be in either state before the observer opens the box, the cat must thus be considered to be simultaneously dead and alive. -ERWIN SCHODINGER'S CAT PARADOX, 1935



'Time' exists because of humanity's (and possibly, any other such highly evolved entity) desire to place themselves within their existance and attempt to understand that existance from the benchmark of human experience - since, in reality, that is the only measure humans actually can use to fathom out their place in existance.

Just some of my thoughts on the subject............. :mrgreen:

Kind of ties in with this.

Trust me I know what you're saying.
Maybe if he wasn't associated with destruction in his everyday life, it could have been more believable.

Oh great...I'm going to have to get stoned to reread this thread....thanx Dom....

Time is only a mechanism for beings to measure (because apprently thats important to some). In the long game, time dosen't mean jack. You start to die from the time your born.
We have zero control over destiny, karma, fate or what ever else you want to call "the future"
IMO, anyway.
I also believe in the "what goes around, comes around" principle. Everything is synchrinistic, this is also why I say there are no coincidences. Everything happens exactly the way it is "supposed" to happen.
or
Whatever is going to happen is going to happen and there ain't a fucking thing you can do about it. We all have a role to fulfill in the big game.
In my travels I have noticed that every single being I've met has played a role in my life and visa versa.(been pretty fortunate enough to meet some most excellant people)

To speak to being "in service".
When you help someone with whatever be it opening a door for someone or going on that beer run or even stopping on the side of the road to aid a fellow traveller of course you do a service they feel good and you feel good. The action either consciously or sub-consiously strokes the ego. You are doing good.

This is the age old battle of the "comic book" good vs evil. The battle is very real.
Good will always win.

Anyway where was I...

BTW I read this thread last week :lol: .....there must be a disturbance in the space time contineum.
