think of time and the universe as a bubble. outside this bubble there is no time and no matter. if you were to stand outside the bubble and look in, you will see everything inside the bubble happening all at once. everything from the beginning of time to the end of time. it is all one single happening.
when you pass thru the bubble you are bombarded by time and have to experience your journey by were you started in the bubble and were you will end in the bubble, as well as every moment in between. you can not look forewords or backwords since you are subdued to a moment by moment structure.

your ideas are well informed, about the viewing of all of time thing as a bubble. you have to consider two factors.
1)whilst out of time you cannot have the time to veiw time passing, in otherwords in order for you to veiw the passing of all of time. you have to observe it which is not possible without some time elapsing
2) to veiw all of time instantly would imply that it occurs at a infinatly quick rate, in which you would observe nothing. im not sure if ive just interpreted the way you wrote this wrong, but from your whole concept i cant see how you would mean it any other way.
i think your very right in the sence we are helpess to escape the fact our reality is bound by time. and perhaps we can never hope to understand it whilst emerced in it.
Speaking of time, I also agree that there is a realm outside of the
physical cosmos that not only existed before the big bang, but is infinite.
From God's perspective, it is like watching from
the Goodyear blimp, seeing time all at once.
what we do in our life seems completely irrelevent if in no condition afterwards are we able to draw on the experiances we have now in some way.
However this still leaves the question of where did the first Universe start from.
i imagine that each new universe is created from
a universe that already exists.
there are an infinite ammount of universes
you seem to be densely educated on this subject have u studied this particular area or like me just given it some thought indivudally and come up with some answers
