The screen is consciousness - always present and aware.


Technically, consciousness is an attribute of life.

Sorry but hat is an erroneous belief.
The appearance and the knowing of it are one.
The screen is the aware space that appears as existence.

its funny to think time doesnt exist while you are taking the time to question whether time exists for you to take the time to question whether time exists. the difference between thinking one thought and the next, taking a breath and releasing it, the expansion and contraction of the heart...even down to the vibrations of atoms and the dance of the most minute particles. none of it is possible without temporal flow. literally everything would be stuck as surely as an ant in a bucket of glue. no perception, no awareness, nothing except cold unfeeling existence. you might as well be a rock. or a piece of coal that cant even wish it was a diamond. that would require the time to wish.

Exactly. You just dont have to call it consciousness. Living cell is not conscious yet experiencing 'now'.

Living cell's temporal state is the screen, if you will. In this respect it is 'timeless'.

How else would you take it.

Time, a 3 dimensional object, moving in a 3 dimensional. space.

No offence, but I doubt a frog would understand "Now", a frog simply is. IS just being a Frog.

Time is a dimension, not something to be taken linerally.


If that is the case, can we somehow move around in it, or through it? If space and time are related, is the past or future merely distance?
If they are related, in what space of time did you come up with this.

If you were to travel away from earth at speed of light, looking back it would appear as if time on earth had stopped, so if you return to earth at twice the speed of light, would you go backward in time.

Is "Thought" the fifth dimension. I thought so. Seven is the hard one.

Electrons don't exist. They are a value, like rpms, deciBells or hertz. A sample rate of passing waveforms.

Gravity/Time/Order is slow motion against omnipresent movement. Electric resistance to eternal chaos state.

You are getting at consciousness fore most of all events and life in particular... I don't know, may be. Still, there should be a mechanism behind it.

And how does it addresses 'now' phenomenon and mechanism of 'memory' which plays part in complexity evolution of matter bonds? You know, from simple to complex.

Question not only to you but to folks in general if it makes sense at all)) Conciseness is an aftermath of life complexity growth, me thinks.

'Now' is becoming apparent starting with primitive primordial living cell... Way before consciousness as we know it.

No one will ever know if something exists outside the knowing of it.

You can see what is appearing, can't you? When are you seeing it? When is it appearing?

Literally in the sense of the mind it does but not in actuality.

Time only exist when an object or thing has a beginning and an end...everything in the Universe had a beginning. Time has always existed!!

That's really the age old question, it's a subject that will be argued for years to come.

Time only appears to exist in thought. If you did not believe in time then you would recognise that there is only what is happening.
And if there was only what there is then you as a separate thing would cease to exist. 'You as a separate thing' only exists in thought - in time.
Now is what there is and now is constantly appearing different.

I have a question to this.. May be time as phenomenon been given definition and exsists in thought... I would agree, but 'time' is much more than that, imo. Do you think the stone that is eroding into becoming sand experiencing effects of time flow?

For years? You are an optimist, sir.

Chaos to order and order to chaos. Elements bind, atoms turn into more complex arrangement forming those elements..on the other hand, elements break down, atoms fall apart and particles decay. All of this is happening without you witnessing all of the above.
Time is there regardless of if you there to observe. One simple proof time is part of universe and not only human thought, is when archaeologist finds dinosaur bone. Dinosaur was born and died long before there were him to observe and think about it. But perhaps he can conclude that dinosaur died of natural causes for example -- it's age.

I have a question to who ever still reads this thread....does it sound valid to conclude that anything moving slower than c, becomes mass? Are there any objections to this conclusion?

thank you.

I think that depends on the definition of mass and energy. E=Mc^2 Is energy simply mass moving at the speed of light squared or does mass become something different all together?
Is energy just another state of mass like ice is another state of liquid water?

I have the ultimate proof for time.

Ready. Wait for it. Wait for it .

Everything (all that appears) is in constant change - what is it that sees and knows that all is changing? And when is it seen and known?

Look at a clock with moving hands on it............the hands move but you see it moving now. Are you ever not now?
Now is what there is and now is constantly appearing different.

You are always now - if 'time' appears (past or future) it can only appear now in imagination. You will never experience past or future - past and future are just stories appearing as thought. Thought stories can only ever appear now - because the seer and knower of thought is ever present.
