Imagine for a moment that time is only a concept and nothing more. It's very difficult to do because most of us have been conditioned since birth to
acknowledge the significance of time in the practical sense. We only have a finite number of hours in a day to complete our tasks and must carefully
plan our activities if we are to accomplish all our goals for that time period before we fatigue and require sleep. This cycle seems to repeat itself
continually, which can leave our lives feeling stagnant and predictable. No wonder so many people are always looking for ways to spice up their
But what if time were in fact infinite and what only ever exists is in the present? Many people just cannot alter the perception of time that has been
drummed into them since birth. They will say things like "well I was born X years ago, and I worked as a media advisor Y years ago, and I lost my
parent Z years ago, and that is not happening now so it must be in the past!" They might compound this by saying that life was different then and
they have changed since those events took place.
That last point is valid, but it does not negate the theory that time could very well be infinite. You see, while it might seem like a paradox (and it
probably is), "that which remains constant is that we continuously change in the present moment of time" doesn't sound so crazy when you think
about it deeply. I am not the same person I "was" 5 minutes ago and I won't be the same person I am 5 years into the "future". Nevertheless, the
constant throughout is the self-evident consciousness.
I am not the first person to have this revelation and I won't be the last. And while these "time is an illusion" threads might be plentiful, I do
believe I have presented these views through a unique voice, which I hope will result in a "light bulb moment" for as many readers as possible.
What are your beliefs on the nature of Time?
