Mysteries of Time

The Mysteries of Time

I was intrigued by what he said about time. Especially his emphasis on the subject of time not being part of the dimension he came from. In truth, I have for over 2-decades, been very obsessed with the concept of Time especially the hypothetical claim of time-travel. I have tirelessly questioned the nature of time, whether it exists outside of our immediate perception of it.

Time, to me, is part of the experience in reality that I could not help my mind around. It has defeated my reasoning flawlessly. And this is the moment, my opportunity to ‘naked’ the mysteries of time. I thought to myself.

I asked my visitor about the concept of time; How do they see time from their dimension? And also, the idea of time-travel, which I have lost my mind to for a very long time. Why am I drawn to it?

This is his response which I think is very profound…

“You’re imprisoned in an invisible element you call time. It is in your nature and that of your kind to fight back anything that locks you up. You hate to be caged and you’d at all cost find a way to be liberated.
Time, as you describe it, works in your ‘elzi’ (which means mind/soul — a cognitive process). It is not a physical component within your dimensions. We do not see time in your dimension and it doesn’t exist in ours. It is your mystery, your nightmare. It is what binds you to your world. 
The moment you break this bond to your world, then you’d gain liberty from your nightmare. But there is a secret which is open to you. 
You have no past, no present, and no future. It’s all the same. When you understand this, you’d unlock yourself from your mystery…”

At this point, I can accept the fact that answers to most of our questions are the beginning of more questions. Of course, he doesn’t expect me to fully comprehend all he just said. My facial expression says it all — it was obvious to him. So he cared enough to elaborate:

“You’re fashioned to see things in relation to the other; to carve out distinction objectively and subjectively… and you exist within this frame of reality. Your species live by the philosophy of relationship, and the concept of time is your best chance to describe these phenomena. You cannot exist within and outside of the same frame. You can not fathom or live beyond the within, being enclosed in the within…except from the without. This is a nightmare, a mystery — a cognitive being like you and your species cannot be free from in your very frame of existence. Such liberty is attainable when you exist outside of the very frame. It is simple to comprehend this transient nature of your form of reality this way – you cannot see the whole of a house you are in except you’re some distance outside of it.”

Here, I could remember a quote by Ernst Mach, which says:

‘It is utterly beyond our power to measure the changes of things by time… time is an abstraction at which we arrive through the changes of things.’

This is where I think we should wash our faces and get refreshed. If you’re not holding a pack of puffcorn, I’d advise you do that now, because this is only the beginning. Unfortunately, I do not have the strength and patience to put everything into writing to be shared here except in my hard journal.

I’d have to jump a large chunk of the conversation on this subject, so I do not bore you with too much. Hopefully, this is enough clue for my readers to see time differently and understand the mysteries inherent in it. The next set of paragraphs (which is moved to Part III of the same title) is about time-travel; its possibilities and its paradox.
