Time is not : energy, matter, particles, light, magnetism, aether, vacuum, emptiness or nothingness.
On the other hand any change of the above list, can be measured by time. So time is more like
a framework to allow our brain to capture reality. That also means that reality can exists without
our perception… Or in other words, the linear way our brain is programmed does not effect the
surrounding universe. So why do we need it at all ?
One reason is to keep the “program running” (like in computers), which in some way limit our
perception of cause and effect into two dimensional view (linear). Time belong to the intellectual
part of us, but there are others minds and state of minds that are alive within us : emotional,
instinctive, soul and other “higher bodies” extending up. Whether you believe in that or not - does
not change it…
I think trying to analyze the question of Time using only our Intellectual side - is quite limiting.
It’s like measuring the mass, speed and other properties of a distant star with only the tools
you have at hand, right now… Or watching a phenomena with “Too much close-up” without
taking into consideration the surrounding… Our intellectual part can function much better using
impressions from the emotional, intuition and other parts of us.
For instance LIGHT. If you examine it only from the intellect, you missing most of the picture,
since it’s not only about speed, particles, energy, math, geometry. It is a “life giving force”, it is
forming and transforming our universe in many senses. Even in the emotional sense, light is
happiness, openness, honesty, healthy (physically and mentally) and many more meanings.
The emotional part of us not always obey time. You can ask yourself : what if I was…..? Then now
it would be different. Which is a completely legitimate question - very realistic. That the intellectual
part cannot grasp.
I think part of our programming inflicted on us due to the course modern science took (since
the ancient Greeks, up to day) : dry facts, analyzing, logic conclusion, math, muscular,
linear thinking, “disintegrating nature” into particles, laws, measurements, categories,
names and theories.
While ignoring the other parts of the human, which when working in balance with the intellectual one,
could lead to integration, harmony, “larger perspective”, more refine and much closer to the truth…
And all this comes even before talking about TIME…
