Time is an Illusion we Build our Lives Around

Time is also the space we find Between our Memories

ime is a fascinating idea, but not a matter I use exact science to decipher. I just use fuzzy logic and allow imagination to answer my questions, sorry Einstein, Hawking but mathematical equations hardly matter to me at this point in time. I favor my ingenuous insights in hopes that they will bring a spark to creativity.

When conjecturing about time, no one is too sure; scientists change their mind countless times never reaching a conclusion, maybe because there isn’t any. Time doesn’t go anywhere and there is not a destination where it ought to arrive at. Time doesn’t have a purpose either; time is like a dance which the only purpose – is to dance.

Time is a strange aspect of the universe. It is a vastness of nothing and we can only perceived it when contrasting it with the events we call real. Time just keep moving on and never stops. Do we take time too seriously?

If were not for the few moments in the present we experience during meditation; we would spend most of our lives in the past or in the future. Without our memories of the past we would not know who we are, and with no planning for the future we have no direction forward. We don’t know if time goes backwards or forewords but we know for sure time is passing.

There is a stark sense of reality that time is passing because we age. Time is elastic, some say. Pleasurable times passes faster, and days spent in hell pass the slowest. The passage of time brings a tear to our eye as we see it as loss. Time is change.

We don’t like change but time is the vortex of change. Time changes so smoothly we can’t see it moving. We can’t see where it begins or where it ends. For time, there is no beginning or end. The simple act of observing time makes time change. Time does what it wants and trying to control time is as elusive as time itself.

To feel safe we take a picture of time as an attempt to stop it from moving. But a picture of time is an illusion within an illusion. Better stay in the present moment when everything happens eternally. Past present and future happens at the same time – at this very moment in time.

Time gives us opportunities again and again. They say time makes it perfect but in reality making it perfect makes it perfect. How many times can you begin again? As many times as you need. There are unlimited amounts of time because time is limitless.

Time is money: no its not. Kill the stupid who said that.

Do you have time to kill? You cannot kill time because time is not alive or dead. But time will kill you faster than you could ever kill time. If you don’t die, you’ll just end up doing more time.

And nothing can withstand the ravages of time. Even the most tenacious and damaging political regimes will succumb the test of time. Politicians, no matter how evil will be history with a few dabs of time.

If time never dies, our existence never dies. If time is deathless than death itself is another illusion. In the universe of time only changes exist; the moment you perceive it, time has already moved on. We can’t ever catch up with the speed of time.

Have a good time!
