I truely believe within the English language another dimension exists. Quite what this dimension is trying to tell us/direct us towards is ????.


Time

Or rather that our perception of it is ..... incorrect.


The only variable that exists in the realm that we use as a basis for comparison when judging time which is not based upon a system that is round is .....

popular opinion.

Opinion, and perception are the only variables in existance telling us time is linear.

Everything else in reality is telling us time is round.

So i embrace reality, and dispute peoples' opinions.

Even THE LIGHT when disected and examined is ...

a rainbow, which would also be perfectly round, if it weren't for our observations of it from the ground, with the earth obstructing half of it.

So, even the light is round. As is every other basis for comparison when judging time. Sun, Moon, Orbits, .... even the input from the senses are senses based upon round. eyes, eyeballs, irises, pupils, optic nerves, nostrils, earholes, .... etc.....

So, perhaps either reality is wrong, and our opinions are right ...

Or our opinions are the only linear variable that exists.

A related read. Especially the parts that mention how the brain's comprehension of time ties together with perception of speech and communication.

Just one more alternative?

I haven't seen the first two, and/or the infinitum of negative numbers on the other side of 0.

an excellent method of analyzing...

I ask, ... have you seen yourself? ..
or rather..
Have you ever seen what you really look like without your ideas and/or thoughts interfering?
If you haven't even seen that, that why do we toil back and forth in this insipid search

Ape-parent-lie you'd rather believe the lie than believe a truth... that "apparently" relates to "appear" and has to do with "seeing." So once you know the apparent truth, then you can see that "apparent" and "appear" and "apparition" and once you know that, then you know that in a related language (Spanish) that "apparace" must have something to do with seeing and that "apparaissez" in French also means appear and you can figure out the meaning of the Portugese "apareça".

And if you knew etymology, you would know that "parent" really comes from the Latin "parentem", which would give you the true meaning of "postpartum" and would also tell you the meaning of "parent" in French. If what you have is the truth, it also explains other linked language words.

If what you have is a lie, it offers no link and no understanding in any language other than English. If you see what etymology tells you then you get a deeper understanding of words and not a shallow anagram play that gave the rather absurd "peer amid."

Etymology is a "time is linear" perspective.

I theorize reality is right, and the collective opinion of time being linear may be incorrect.

Etymology is 100% correct, if reality is incorrect concerning time being circular.

I would trust etymology more, if it were compliant with what reality says concerning the nature of time.

Etymology is an applicable study of language, if time is linear.

Reality does not say time is linear.

Linear minds say time is linear, not reality.

I just thought with all this talk of pyramids someone could answer this ancient riddle given by the mythical Sphynx if answered correctly you get to live. If not you get to find out if there really is an after life.

The answer is man.

In our childhood we crawl on all fours.

In adulthood we walk upright on two legs.

In old age we use a crutch.

There is a nother version where in old age the third leg is wisdom.

Wrong sphynx, actually.

The Riddler was the Greek (female) sphynx. I'm pretty sure the Greeks copied the concept from the Egyptians rather than the other way around. The sphynxes of the pharaohs symbolized their divine power.

Isn't this thread a 'thought experiment'?

perhaps you should have considered that not only does everyone already know the answer to that riddle but that most people into mythology knew the answer when they were 5
but what you have said as the answer is only the answer given by Oedipus
as such it isn't the only answer
anyone who's read the Hobbit apparently has more imagination than either the sphinx or Oedipus
besides which the riddle you asked was not actually written down until much later in greek history
it was just said that the sphinx would ask a riddle
so if you ever do meet a sphinx and it asks you a riddle don't put all your money on "a man" being the only answer
btw
what is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow ?
