LOl, Of course there are reptilians, but they are none too intelligent and live on crickets, mice etc. I have several, none of them have tried on any mind control im aware of yet.
Sarcasm done with, I have never really been too keen to except 'time' as a dimension.
Its an entirely subjective concept IE that it starts somewhere and runs forward. But then we have no other perception by which to measure it, hence clocks and calendars.
To me a dimension is a direction/place , as excepted for the three we know.
Im not beyond the possibility that there may be a direction in which we cannot see or perceive, whatever it may be.
How would we explain our perception to a two dimensional lifeform?
Time only exists as we can perceive it, a concept to explain then/now.
The past has been recorded, but where is it 'Now'? Where is a future that hasnt happened yet? where is tomorrow?
I think even brainiac scientist struggle with some concepts, afterall, if your inside looking out, theres only so much you can see.

Nope, flawed argument. I can swing my arm around but it has nothing to do with time. It has to do with electrical signals in my brain, muscles, bones, blood, but not time. It is purely conceptual, a tool we use to cope with this reality, but not a real concept.

in Dr. Rick Strassman's book '___' the Spirit Molecule, he continually feels suprised in seeing how many of the volunteers ('___' study at University of New Mexico) "made contact" with "them" or other beings. At least half did so in one form or another. Research subjects used expressions like "entities,""beings,""aliens,""guides," and "helpers" to describe them. The "life-forms" looked like reptiles, mantises,insects and spiders (sometimes even bees, cacti, clowns, and stick figures)
He admits that it was hard for him to accept these stories because they challenge the prevailing world view, and his own but its as if his mind refuses to accept whats black and white.
since our modern approach to reality relies upon waking consciousness, and its extensions of tools and instruments.They are "nonmaterial" beings
In contrast, indigenous cultures are in regular contact with denizens of the invisible landscape and have no problems with straddling both worlds. Often they do this with the aid of psychedelic plants.

I have most recently considered time to be just like space, in that it is fully 3 dimensional. We only interact with it 1 dimensionally, and even that is limited However, were you able to, you could access time just like place, by choosing to go to a specific time, in any timeline.
