We dont see a lot of science discussions these days, For a multitude of reasons, It's the changing times I guess, I could pine on about how people just don't seem to care as much about science, But truly, People have more important things to worry about right now than extra-dimensional spaces. That said, there are and always have been people who at the end of the day will wonder how the universe works even in times like these. . I think It was Delmore Schwartz that said, Time is a fire in which all man burns. What a hose nozzle that guy was,, Sure it sounds poetic but it's just dumb, It displays a huge lack of understanding of what Time really is. it would be like someone writing a number one song about how dumb they were, Then getting caught lip-syncing to on Saturday night live. Like dumb to the 4th power kinda stuff. Anyway, I'm not a Delmore Schwartz fan. I suppose to understand time, The Best jumping on point is to consider dimensional Theory. The Empirically proven Dimensions Are Height, Width, Depth, And Time. And yes. Time is empirically proven because. Pause for a moment, Now, Disprove time is a thing.. Okay??, Moving on. So when we think about time, We tend to think, At least I used to tend to think of it as past and present or even in lines, like timelines. But, The truth is, all of the time Exists as a whole, Past present, and future as one dimension, The 4th dimension, And It has a horizon, SO, Yeah... SO, If you think of time, Like a ball or a sphere, It has a perceivable horizon we experience not the whole of the 4th dimension, But just a location upon its surface so as we move through time, We experience it not as it's whole, But as if we are traveling along its surface, Much as we do the Earths surface, For whatever reason we are confined to this perception, Always moving forward as a steady rate. Those people, those places. They all still exist, just over the horizon, Beyond perception, Just how we remember them. Idk, I've studied physics and really fascinated over time for over twenty years. this is how I've come to understand it. What is cognition, What is understanding? the thoughts of one man are the delusions of another I guess.
