ok before reading any of this thread i issue a word of warning to stricktly religeous people as it may have some controversial agendas. however before
you come to any hasty decsions just consider that every new idea at face value seems outrageous. with time and better understanding however the
concepts merge in and are generally accepted and not resented ( consider the proposal of a spherical earth and the orbit of the earth round the sun
anyway with that out of the way to the subject at hand. TIME
the concept of time has been troubling me for a while now as i beleive it holds the key to at least a peice of the puzzle to the mystery of existance.
working with our current models of science, time itself started at the big bang, time is infact an aspect unique to the universe. besides anything
that happend before the big bang is irelevent because everything that is, is contained withing the universe and events before then have no bearing on
now consider this, you are born some 20 odd years ( most of us ) after the the brith of your mother. now there are two paths we can choose here both
have undesirable consequences.
1) your soul is conceived and created upon your birth, raising the question "why would any soul deserve to exist longer than another" one possible
solution to this problem is that your soul is eventually destroyed in co ordinandce with its creation, putting it simply your mothers soul is
destroyed 20 odd years before your own in some distant future, this seems equally inprobable and highly undesirable.
2) your soul has always existed and will exist forever. this at face value seems a nicer way of thinking about things but dig in deeper and we find
some very uneasy revelations. first of which is if your soul has always existed what was it doing before your birth. this implies that upon death you
would have no memory of your current life as your souls previous endevours are never remembered in your current life. this seems equally undesirable.
the problem however with both these logical deductions is they are both put in the context of TIME. timlessness for many is hard to imagine. if i said
imagine there was no time im guessing most would imagine a still picture, no movement, however this implies the presence of the present, a still
picture or " frame" of time, which is still an ASPECT of time. timelessness infact implies absolutly nothing. not even a single atom as this would
also be a " frame " of time.
to solve this ever growing puzzle we must consider how the universe and time within it came to be. here lies the paradox. for a big bang to be
initiated it requires an action, actions must occur over time, yet time has not yet been created as it is an aspect of the universe.( for all you
religeous people reading, there you go unequivical proof of some sort of divine power ) for the sake of argument lets just refere to the initiation of
the big bang as an act of GOD, ( unless anybody has any better ideas ) what ever state god exists in therefore must be outside of time as the big bang
was trigered before time was invented. this also implies there is a relm exterior to the universe itself as what ever started the big bang (god) is
back to the problem of souls, the problems previously stated are removed when using the proper context of time, upon your death or prior to your birth
you exist out of time, without the presence of any time what so ever you negate the need for an actual creation, creation implies an initiation at
some prior point, it requires a point in time which you can indentify and say, THEN thats when i was born.
some of the implications of this are that we wer with god before we wer hear, or EXTREMELY controversialy but we ourselfs are infact GOD. beleive what
ever you think is the most conceivable or likly,
In summary i feel iv barly scratched the surface but these are just a few of my thoughts. any cultured inputs to piece this jigsaw are most welcom
