a temporal tidbit

“For us convinced physicists, the distinction between past, present, and future is only an illusion, albeit a persistent one.” ~Albert Einstein

What happens when we let go of the human construct of “time”?

    Given how dependent people are upon their mobile devices to maintain contact with…a connecting in time behavior…such a suspension would no doubt create utter chaos for many.

    Thought, linear thought, ceases
    As time ceases.
    Identity of self
    Story ceases
    Focus ceases.
    Human ceases
    Perhaps not
    Perhaps not
    Becomes circumference
    Ever expanding
    Or eternal
    A flower
    On a prairie
    Containing galaxies.
    Being nothing
    But a measure
    Of space.
    The time it takes
    The reaching of edges.

    I’m counting on Einstein and the illusion of time 😉 – I like the idea that from birth to death is like a piece of string in time – always there in the space time continuum and able to be accessed at any point if given the right conditions; and maybe the strings of life can overlap and we can jump between strings and vice versa (or something like that – hahaha) – what I am sure of is that humans are wrong about most things.

    Time is an illusion built by men to create the basis to a society of order in every possible way. But I do understand that a lot of people would get vertigo just by the thought of that. 😀

    Freedom; eat when you feel hungry, sleep when tired, work when you are full of energy or inspiration, no more dead-line, no more burn-out.

    What happens when we let go of the human construct of “time”? According to Einstein,
    everything happens
    at once.

    Certainly chaos would follow, however, once everyone calmed down, we might find we are present in each moment more instead of deferring to some other point in the future.
