I've thought about this many times during my life...glad i'm not the only weirdo out there!


The way i imagine it, is very similar to your thinking, but the differences between Humans is explained by experiential data.

Think of it like this...person A is 50 years old, person B 40 years old and person C 35 years old.

They three live in different parts of the world, under different circumstances and of course, in essentially different time periods due to the age differences.

They would be the same people, experiencing the same or similar aspects of the Human condition at different times relative to each other, which would make them appear to be different from each other.

Another way to think of it is to imagine our three people, but one is happy, one is sad and one is indiferent.

They would seem to be three very different people...until we realise that they (and therefore we) each feel these emotions and states of personality in much the same way, just not at exactly the same moment.

The only difference therefore is time. When in time our people experience the same emotion makes them appear distinct, but in reality we're the same...but we're the same at different times!

Could you except that time isn't real? What happens to your idea if it isn't real? Didn't someone say time existed just so everything didn't happen at once? How can you explain premonitions if time is liner?
Just a thought, makes it simpler for me...

I know they say that time isn't real but the truth is that it is a failure of ability to grasp and hold a finite point in time that leads to that theory.
It's more likely that time is not only real but is infinite and in some condition we experience it all at once.

As the same soul on different timelines we would be handicapped by experiencing a specific period of time in a linear series from life to death. Similar to how a game of football or soccer is limited by a specific area, rules of play and time.

That's pretty much what I was thinking. Just arranged a little differently.
