The way I read the argument regarding the arrow, is that there is only now, and that at each moment, each now, the arrow is motionless. On the larger
scale of the universe, everything is synchronous and happening at once, and in that case, relative motion is only relative to the observer, when in
reality, the whole of reality, there is no motion, since everything is relative to everything else, and it all just is at each moment of now, just
like the arrow. Einstein's Theory of Relativity is built on relative motion, not on any sort of objective reality, and it therefore lacks any sort of
universal transluminal connecting principal. It denies the existence of a universal now, which may be the ONLY thing that is actual and real..
I suppose what I'm driving at, is the possibility that time and space are an illusion.. and from the perspective of light, this is the case, and
since everything is founded on light, and every chemical process reduced to the emission or aborption of a photon of light, then what appears to be
motion is nothing but a reconfiguration of the same obiquitious timeless, spaceless energy.
When you walk to the store, are you really moving from A to B, or does the store also approach you, and are you covering ground, or is each step along
the way nothing but a reconfiguration of the same ground of being..?
