First, let's assume time DOES exist, since we can all observe it so well, and then we will get to our conclusion that in fact, it does NOT exist.
If time exists, let's see what we know about time. It goes from the FUTURE into the PAST as we observe motion around our universe. Everything jumps
from "could be" to "was", and there is no actual moment called the "Present", from our observable time. In fact what we call the present is
simply our immediate past, our immediate memory of what had just occured. We do observe that time may slow down, and we have theories that we can even
STOP it if we reach light speed. NONE OF THAT CONTRADICTS MY PROOF! Now remember, even if you have a time machine, this proof still absolutely HOLDS
and no time machine can violate it.
How old is the universe? Well our current universe is shaped out of energy, which might not be so long ago (Big Bang, whatever it was that shaped this
universe). So how old is the energy then? It is exactly INFINITY years old (remember, we're assuming time exists for now). Why has it been around
You can never get SOMETHING out of NOTHING. If there was ever NOTHING, there would ALWAYS be NOTHING. Because there is SOMETHING, that means there has
always been SOMETHING. Don't forget, NOTHING means NOTHING/ZILCH/ZERO/NADA/BLANK, and doesn't mean a LITTLE BIT OF SOMETHING! Don't trip up on the
Now we know that energy (out of which everything is formed) has been around forever. But then how does time not exist you ask? Well, because if time
exists, then WE cannot exists, and in fact NOTHING would ever exist! Why? Simple... (here's the logical part, put on your thinking hats!)
If everything has been around forever, that means we have eternity behind us in the past, and eternity in front of us in the future. But we can NEVER
have eternity behind us in the PAST, because that means we had to go through eternity to get WHERE WE ARE NOW. There's only one problem with that. WE
CAN NEVER go through eternity. Eternity, simply means FOREVER. It means NEVER ENDS. That's right, we would first have to wait FOREVER before we could
reach ANY TIME PERIOD in order to have "eternity" behind us. Because no matter what time period you are in, there will ALWAYS be eternity in the
past, since we already know that energy had no beginning.
Therefore, before ANYTHING would ever be formed out of energy, energy would first WAIT FOREVER (NEVER STOP WAITING) before shaping ANYTHING. That's
right, this means nothing could ever exist, as long as there is infinity of time behind it in the past. There CANNOT BE infinity of time behind us in
the past, we can only wait a FINITE amount of time before being shaped out of energy or being located at ANY time period, hence existing.
What does it all mean? It all means that time doesn't exist.
So let's wrap it up...
If time exists, then we know for a FACT that energy is eternal.
If energy is eternal, we must have eternity behind us in the past.
But we cannot have eternity behind us, because we can never GO THROUGH eternity to get where we are.
Because eternity means NEVER ENDS, so we'd STILL BE WAITING before being created out of energy.
By we I mean ANYTHING, so NOTHING would ever exist, it'd first have to wait eternity before it can be shaped.
As you can see, time cannot exist. If it does, nothing else can ever exist. There is absolutely NO TRICK in what I just said, and I am beind
Why do we have the perception that time exists? That's a good question.. and is not easily answered. However, it is also true that perception CAN be
an illusion, and in ou reality usually is. What we PERCEIVE has NOTHING to do with what IS. We cannot perceive ultraviolet light, but our instruments
prove it exists. We CAN perceive a hologram that may appear real and tangible, but we KNOW is not. So once again, perception is NOT something to rely
upon for "reality check". Our senses are nothing but translators, they detect various inputs and variously present these inputs to our minds.
However, the way the information is PRESENTED in our head does NOT imply that this is what really IS.
