Well yes, because you couldn't be reading this before
I posted it, could you?Before
is the status of my post in time, right now as I'm typing this, before
you're reading it get me?
I have a question about time. Why does it move in only one direction for us? See I can sit down on my bed like I am now and eventually get back up. What if I had to keep sitting
more and more until my life's end, because I couldn't move backwards? Would that be like time? If you think about it from our first conscious moments, we are flung down an irreversible path. We are experiencing time. Why
? And what else is like time that it has to be experienced? See I can measure my other dimensions. I don't know the dimensions of my room but I bet I could get a measuring tape and show it
to you. Time is only felt by us. There is no equivalent of the yardstick for time. I cannot show you
a second. I can stand with you and experience a second, feel it come and go with you, and say "There that was one second" but it's so much less tangible as it passes us. Essentially we are falling
through time. Are we 3 and a half dimensional?
Music exists in time. An arrangement of sounds over time, beats in a minute, and patterns made to be beautiful to our ears. Maybe music or other sequenced events is evidence of time? Would something outside
human perception of time even understand what our music is? Would our most moving efforts only sound flat to him, from beginning to end, and as plain as a piece of ribbon? Would a creature like that have its own type of music, would hearing it be a hundred times more than any drug conceived to us? To see our whole world top-down must be a nauseating vantage point.
