You know how serious we are about "time", how real we think it is.
I would purport, however, that the whole concept of time being real is utterly absurd, nonsensicle, and ridiculous. Let me show you:
We measure time in accordance with the earth's rotation in space, and calendar time by the earth's annual wabbling rotation around the sun. We don't
worry about galactic time of course, or universal time, except to say that the universe is somewhere around 20 billion earth rotations around the sun
or "years" old, and so on the basis of that, we think time is real, as a measure of causation, as relative motion in space-time. Then there's the time
for atomic decay, so we set it on that, the second, and then build from there, a time-based reality of past - present - future. Tick tick tick tick.
But what time is it now?
Our sun is a fifth generation star, our galaxy some day is due to collide with another one already on it's way, and everything's moving this way and
that way all within the frame of one eternally unfolding present moment, in the midst of two eternities whether you actually believe in the big bang
or not. If like me, you believe in an evolutionary eternal recurrence through the continual "death" and "resurrection" of the Akashic Field or the
Zero Point Field which (or who?) is fully informed and self-aware in eternity (having had plenty of time to become self realized while at the same
time requiring our own self realization to become an authentic expression of what is real and true) then you will KNOW with absolute certainty, that
the whole notion of time is an illusion, nothing more.But isnt it a persistent one, and one upon which our entire false reality matrix is,
So what time is it now?
It's time to wake UP!
Some of us need clock time to survive or to make our way in the world economically - fine. Its there we can use it.
But in the grand scheme of things, there is no time, except the present moment in eternity already always now and forever. Its here. Now, It happened,
time caught up with itself, and then ended.
What time is it now?
What an absurd presumption!
Its ridiculous, nonsensicle, but I know many here at ATS will come rushing to the defence of time as being real, because without time, whats there for
the ego to do?!
My God what will we TALK about?
Does this mean that the creation as the eternal flow of life will come to an end? Dont be absurd, since what is already is what it is, already, and
the occurance of whats happening is whats happening, and it cant not be what it is and is becoming, in eternity, now.
So like the mind, time is just a tool.
I hope we can learn how to use it creatively, and wisely as a tool, without being its slave any longer.
In the name of the end of time, smash a watch and burn a calendar, and think of me.
from the end of time AS the end of time here in eternity already..
