I was reading my daily engineering e-newsletter yesterday, and near the bottom there was an article about some recent research into reverse-time
One experiment seemed to show that a reverse-time event could not take place if the result of that event would be the negation of the particle
associated with it.
Another experiment indicated that real reverse-time events can't happen in our universe.
The newsletter then asked readers to leave their own opinions.
I decided to try to write down what I knew about time, and I discovered that I could do this, but that most would consider the ramifications of my
In 1954, Hubbard concluded that:
Time is basically a postulate that space and particles will persist.
This is spirit-based time, which is how I currently understand it.
In this concept of time, all existence is in “present time” and persistence of matter and energy, in this universe, is an apparency driven by the
collective intention of its creators (us).
“The past” is nothing but records of other “present times” that we create and hold in present time as we go along.
In traditional mathematical models of objects in motion, time, for convenience, is given a dimension. In non-traditional mathematical models it may be
assigned more than one dimension. This promotes the idea that time has dimension. But in spirit-based time, it has no “real” dimension, whereas
This gives a clue as to why Hubbard's work continues to be so ignored and rejected. To consider that the persistence of the whole universe relies on
nothing more than what amounts to social agreement gives the impression of a universe that is much more frail than it really seems to be. The
alternative view, that spiritual intention is much stronger than what most of us would think, is equally unsettling.
Yet have you ever actually seen any evidence of a “place” called the “past?” The world is full of records of it, and our minds are full of
memories of it, but has anyone ever exited from present time to “go” to the past? We use the analogy of travel when speaking about the study of
records and remembering, but these activities are really all done in present time.
Likewise, the “future” seems to only consist of concepts of what it could or should or probably will be.
The fact that matter and energy persist is so obvious that in most physical systems, the creation or destruction of matter and energy is not allowed.
To suggest that these things really persist only because we want them to is a very radical idea!
But if you give the spirit a much more prominent role in life than it is traditionally given, this concept of time actually aligns with experience,
and has led to great advances in the rehabilitation of human ability.
