What are moments?
Other than as a mere socialism, as in "just a moment!", scientifically and philosophically, a 'moment' is a Planck moment;
Planck moment = 10^-43/sec; "almost" one billion trillion trillion trillionths of a second!!!
Since a Planck moment is literally 'timeless', a 'moment' is NOT a unit of 'time'!
Interestingly, most would think that 'existence' is all moments strung together, with a beginning and end!
But, 0+0+0+0+0... all moments together, end to end = 0!
The Universe, all of it, ever, IS The Singularity!
What is a 'moment'?
A 'moment' is a 'timeless' unit of perception, a 'percept'!
Every moment of existence is Here! Now!
A 'moment' is a unit of Knowledge/experience of Self!
Know how on a cartoon critter, when he has a revelation, that light-bulb that goes on over his head?
That is a very 'tiny bang'!
Each moment is a unique 'tiny bang'.
All moments, synchronously arising, of 'Self Knowledge', an entire Universe of moments of Self-awareness, arising all at once, IS quite the 'Big
(without all the absurdity with which the 'physicalists' have to twist and deal!)
