The assumption of timelessness and everness**

lee_broom

When discussing the assumption of a timeless world (which exists* beyond the material world as defined by  the senses) one must choose carefully to avoid the use of words which demonstrate the bias of time; for example, the words used in the sentence before this one.

“When”: Redundant.
“Discuss ing”: ing denotes present moment in time.
“Timeless”: Redundant.
“Exists”: Present.
“Made”: All verbs.
“Known:” Past
“Use”: All verbs
“Demonstrate”: All verbs.
“Bias”: Implication of time.
“Time”: Redundant.

My education is primarily in Design and in the Social Sciences. I am interested in Linguistics but only from the perspective of trends in behavior and philosophy.

I suspect that there exists an argument stating that all words and symbols found in all cultures reflect the bias of an awareness of time and that this bias  is a necessary feature of extancy (extance)**.

*frustrating, isn’t it?  [timeless world (which exists…)]

** Used twice, it is affirmed and therefore considered by at least one person to be a word.

Big deal. Old men and puppy dogs need something to occupy their “time” if only to mark their territory.

WHERE DID WE BURY THE BONES?

 

“Quantum physicists have postulated that the way we experience time is an illusion; that it doesn’t happen in a linear way, that past and present in reality, there’s no difference…..

…..those good times that you had with your dad, they’re happening right now, they’ll always be happening. You deserve to keep those alive.”
Bones to Booth after his father died. Bones. 12 1 2011.

If it is true that time is linear rather than vertical, isn’t it possible that the surprising revelations that we refer to as ESP or for that matter, even that which we refer to as memory, are simply accidentally discovered, perceptual overlaps from events separated by that invisible door that normally keeps these prior events or possible futures in the shadows. Even matter as we know it is slippery stuff the hardness of which is little more than a trick of mental programming. Nothing is as it seems. Where are we going? Where have we been? Where are we? What are we?

Time and Tide (in Parentheses)

lee_broom

“I wonder”, mused Rupert momentarily, taking time to place a portion of his current subject into mental parentheses, “is it possible that when ALL is known that TIME will cease to exist? If it ceases to exist sometime in the future, does it exist now? If it does not exist now , then is there no future? And if there is no future do I exist Now? Is there a ‘Now’?”

Rupert rarely panicked but he was beginning to fidget and a tic that he had inherited from Great, Great Grandfather Rolf was blinking rapidly, just above the long scar on his right cheek which had been inherited from no one and acquired while valiantly defending Karina last year  from the  Fourth Street Gang, a gaggle of uncivilized inhabitants of that area between Third and Fifth, just east of Robinson deep within the odiferi=ous  bowels of a rapidly dying American city.

Rupert was searching for that momentarily arrested thought, the one which he had so carefully placed into an imagined parentheses in that 8 ¾ hat-sized space between his ears. Apparently Rupert had  learned little from this experience of moments ago and had apparently  not yet been warned that Time and tide wait for no man; he quickly created a new parentheses.

(“I can/t let Karina see me like this. This thought will return. I am sure of it. There will be another Time.”)
