We've all heard of Buddha's "Middle Way" (see; chrono-synclastic infundibulum), right?
There are various understandings...
I just experienced an interesting Perspective;

"The 'Middle Way' is equidistant to all Perspectives."

Give it a moment or two, savor it slowly (it goes a lot deeper than first glance), then, your thoughts? *__-

I'll meet you there.

Is it the same place?

even moderation should be done in moderation, because sometimes you just have to ball out?

Or will reality open once I stop feeding the false one?

I like that "moderation should be done in moderation," will that make one a radical moderate?

In black and white issues, the gray area is of equal importance. Whatever reality is, it does not depend on whether we can accept it or not. Oftentimes it bites us in the ass, for lack of better metaphor.

The moment which is every where at once as long as it exist.

An analogy to particle wave dynamics is that of a wave in the ocean with when it makes contact to a shore the particle aspect as expression of its potential.

In relation to the flow of time the present seems apparent as offered as well.

But isn't space, like time is also ubiquitous? Without consciousness will time and space exist? How does matter and energy fit into the big picture? Between nothing and something, there is potential? My apologies, I may have drank too much coffee to think straight.

In the moment.

On way of looking at it is that potential energy is not just fixed as in observation with respect to particles.

it is also static from the context of its wave aspect.

In which case at argument would be the extent of such an expression as a wave in relation to a particle?

In potential that such an expression could be infinite, in respect to consciousness; relating to the present and otherwise in definition the moment.

In this way consciousness could be transcendent in my humble opinion.


By considering that the moment is an expression of a flow in some direction where the surface in allegory to the above constitutes the future.

But not exactly as we understand a surface.

Time relates to motion insofar as we are concerned in general.

Thank you for explaining but I'm still not sure if I understand what you mean, I may have put a lot of cheap brandy in my coffee... is the moment the middle?

We are an expression of reality at some greater scale and as such a reflection of that scale. That being due to quantum mechanics being a construct of what exist at some other scale. Where chaos theory presents theoretically, offers that such a scale as I am suggesting, may in fact not be random.

I am offering that it is actually very possible that Moments are not Discrete.

And to be clear neither is matter.

Whoah! Thank you. This may take some time for me to ponder.

I 'spect so!
But poetry can mean whatever you see in it.
Yeah, Rumi Knew! *__-

It isn't as if we have a 'choice'...

I like that! Yes, indeed! *__-

The 'false' is also Truth; another dualistic discrimination...

Not according to quantum mechanics or philosophy.
A Planck moment is not a measure of a set amount of 'time', aq moment is of insufficient 'duration' to maintain any temporal qualities.
A moment is, literally, 'timeless'.
A Planck moment is a unit of perception, a 'percept'.
And if you consider 'time' to be the stringing of moments throughout all existence;
0+0+0+0+0+0... = 0!
That the entirety of existence exists for but a single timeless moment!
Existence/the Universe, ever, IS the Singularity!

Every moment of existence exists Now!

"The Laws of Nature are not rules controlling the metamorphosis of what is, into what will be. They are descriptions of patterns that exist, all at once... " - Genius; the Life and Science of Richard Feynman
All 'eternity' at once; Here! Now!!

There is only one moment (Planck moment = 10^-43/sec; "almost" one billion trillion trillion trillionths of a second!!!) of the entirety of existence/Reality/the Universe!
All existence, ever, is one, literally, 'timeless' moment!
Now!

"Reality is a synchrony of moments!" - Book of Fudd


Time relates to motion insofar as we are concerned in general.

We accept the appearance of 'motion', and thus theorize 'time' to explain it.
Mirage science! *__-

In nature, some things are known to occur in discrete amounts, whereas others appear to be continuous.

Discrete quantities include charge and angular momentum.

Apparently continuous quantities include distance, elapsed time, velocity, linear momentum, force, energy and power.

Planck's constant h is the fundamental constant of proportionality between energy and frequency, much as c relates space and time.

In the photoelectric effect, light of a particular frequency f imparts energy to electrons in a metal. At low intensities, it became evident that the amount of energy imparted E is discrete, according to the observed equation E=hf.

So light appeared to occur in packets of energy which were called photons.

In reality, no photon has a precise frequency, as that would be a perfect plane wave. Sadly, a plane wave is distributed evenly across all of space and therefore has infinitesimal amplitude everywhere and thus would never be detected. So exact frequency is an idealization.

Moreover, light is not always packetized. According to quantum field theory, it is usually a continuum that can be modelled by photons only if we allow alternative total numbers of photons to occur simultaneously.

Thank you. We all needed this reminder right now.

There is also the issue of Quantum Foam.



Quantum foam (also referred to as space-time foam) is a concept in quantum mechanics devised by John Wheeler in 1955. The foam is supposed to be conceptualized as the foundation of the fabric of the universe.
