I've been trying to study when the universe began. It's been
an impossible task, with the debates between the religious ones and the
scientists. So, when did the universe start, you ask? Well, it started
an instant ago.
I'm not telling any lies, everything I say
is true. The universe, the galaxy, the entire world came into being an
instant ago. Still don't believe me? Then go back in time. Believe me,
I tried. You can't go back in time because there is no time to go back
on. There is no such thing as time. The only thing that exists is the
Yes, that is a selfish philosophy, but it's true
for this universe. Nothing exists in the past, nothing exists in the
future yet. Only the present exists. If you go anywhere with a time
machine, you don't go anywhere, because there is no dimension in time.
Sure, some good-quality ones can deposit you somewhere, but that
universe exists for only you and the people who were originally there.
If you change anything in the past, nothing happens to the future,
because that past was a present, and your future is a present as well.
A bit convoluted? Let me explain.
The concept of time is a
false one. What we live in is like a movie; the frames go flashing by.
We don't travel through time, but instead, the person in the frame acts
at their instant. Nothing travels between frames; everything stays
within it's frame. Now, when you time travel, you go back to your film
strip and change it. But the window of "time" has already passed that
point, so it doesn't affect anything. When you travel through time, you
are acting as another light, projecting the image of what had already
passed. But no matter what you do, you can't change the past.
But you can change the future. You can modify the frames in the future,
and when the window of "now" passes by it, it will work upon the
revised future, which would be the real "now". But as soon as you go
back to "now", you the moment you left all the frames after it would
not be affected by what you did. Time is static. You can try to change
it, but in the end, you do nothing.
And then I wonder
whether or not where I'm living is the "now". "Now" varies from person
to person, everyone thinks that their "now" is the real "now". And,
does it really matter? As long as they stay in their "now", it will be
"now" to them. But as soon as you leave your "now", your whole concept
of "now" changes. Actually, "now" isn't a point. It's a point for each
Everyone knows that they are here at a certain
given time. So that is there "now". But when people travel through
time, their new destination is their "now", and their old "now" is no
longer their "now". So, if everyone stepped into different time
machines, there would be no "now" right now.
So there is
now past or future. You don't even exist. We are the drawings on the
filmstrip; we exist at one moment, and none more. Sure, there could be
someone in the next frame that represents us, but they aren't us. You
can't modify the past, so you can't change the present. But you can
change the future. But do you really need a time machine to change the
future? You can work in the present to change the future.
Only the present exists. You can't go to the past, so that is not real.
You can modify the future, but it's modifications is directly related
to the present, so it is not real either. If the past and future are
not real, then time is not real. Time is an illusion.
again, what is real? Is the world we live in real, or is it just a
deception? Is it us, or is it just me? Or is it me, or is it just you?
What is real?
