Can we say that time is non-linear in it's essence? Definitely yes.
Can we say it is a maya, an illusion? Absolutely! But we can't disregard the fact that human consciousness is by default rotted in maya and does not like the essential experience.
It's fascinating, yet highly obscure!

Ok.. So today. A trip that normally takes me 31 minutes to make, ...
'Time' does not exist 'out there', there is no 'out there'.
'Time' (and 'life' and 'death') exists in/as thought. It is a mirage.
But, relevant to this discussion is each person's unique relationship, from moment to moment, with the 'time' and 'space' perceived.
There is no steady stream of moments making 'time'.
A moment is 'timeless'.
No matter how many you string together, the result always = 0!
So, like a daydream, you have a unique relationship with what you perceive as 'time'.
Thus centuries can seem to flash by instantaneously, or millennia, or a second can seem like millennia!
I've gotten good at finding where the 'ends curl around', bypassing the long trip from one end of the 'continuum' to the other, like a wormhole.
So, if you pay attention, you'll find all sorts of interesting things about the stuff of thoughts ('time', for instance) and, ultimately, 'self'. *__-
Hmm, so you're saying you're still posting this, while I've never read it, but at the same time am reading it, and have read it?
Cobblers... just because the illusion of time has no specific points to define it, does not mean you did not do something, and finish it, and move on. you posted. I read. Both moments in time, and bot finite.
