The moment which is every where at once as long as it exist.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and right doing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.
― Jalaluddin Rumi
Is it the same place?

even moderation should be done in moderation, because sometimes you just have to ball out?
Or will reality open once I stop feeding the false one?

By considering that the moment is an expression of a flow in some direction...
Time relates to motion insofar as we are concerned in general.
In nature, some things are known to occur in discrete amounts, whereas others appear to be continuous.
Discrete quantities include charge and angular momentum.
Apparently continuous quantities include distance, elapsed time, velocity, linear momentum, force, energy and power.
Planck's constant h is the fundamental constant of proportionality between energy and frequency, much as c relates space and time.
In the photoelectric effect, light of a particular frequency f imparts energy to electrons in a metal. At low intensities, it became evident that the amount of energy imparted E is discrete, according to the observed equation E=hf.
So light appeared to occur in packets of energy which were called photons.
In reality, no photon has a precise frequency, as that would be a perfect plane wave. Sadly, a plane wave is distributed evenly across all of space and therefore has infinitesimal amplitude everywhere and thus would never be detected. So exact frequency is an idealization.
Moreover, light is not always packetized. According to quantum field theory, it is usually a continuum that can be modelled by photons only if we allow alternative total numbers of photons to occur simultaneously.
