Our time is like a tree. There are many different possible futures as the branches ,
but what most seem to forget about is that there are also many probable pasts.
You are not aware of these many different past variations because they are hidden
below the surface soil as the roots of the tree. This is a very interesting thought.
There are also other trees. And before you know it ,you're in the forest.
With branches and roots entangling one another in intricate patterns of nature.
We can jump between these metaphorical trees without really knowing.
If you examine the tree with consideration for both its roots and its branches ,
then you can see that it looks very much like a toroid in the way it is shaped.
All of the possibilities within the given parameters of the particular tree are there
as its branches and roots. Other trees be shaped differently as they have other
parameters and conditions that be unique to each tree. Branches or roots could
also grow or be lost in some manner. This is a metaphorical idea which occured
to me after observing various different notions of time. Make of it what you will.
As the tree grows it also makes layers upon layers like onions and other plants.
Combining these ideas of the tree with those of the time is in many ways very
intriguing to those of us who study time and the effects of time in this way.
