Skepsos's skepsis

Out of time

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on April 24, 2010

Today, when I was shitting in the toilet, I had quite a marvellous idea.
I don’t think time exists. At least: not in the way we percieve it.
For example: we sometimes ask: what was there BEFORE the universe came into being? The latest reply is that it’s quite possible a multiverse exists and that we are only one of many. Our universe may even have come about because of two different universes colliding, and therefore the collision of two different sets of laws-of-physics.
This makes me think that the nature of our universe and the nature of time as we know it, is not a definate.
We might never be able to test this hypothisis, since we and our instruments are made up of a  certain mass, weight, energy and… time. We cannot step outside of our own linear time.
This is another thing: if time DOES exist, perhaps time is not linear at all. It may be repetitive or spiral shaped.
In quantum physics we’ve found out that there are particles who can be in a different location at exactly the same time. But what if that ‘exactly the same time’ is not the same time at all? I’d like to see astronomists, physists and mathmeticians putting that into their equations and something beautiful might come out.
If time is not linear, our universe has no beginning or end. And that means we could be living in an infinitely small unmeasarable segment of time.

And if there is no beginning, there is no creation or creator either.

    With this theory, how would you respond to Kant’s idea that time is only found in consciousness? And linear time is the only form we can experience.

      I’d say Kant would perfectly agree with me.
