Hello everyone.

I was doing a search on "time is not real" and found this site.

I liked what I was reading and figured you guys can help keep me mentally stimulated.

Great site, i can't wait to dive right in.

Peace and Love

Welcome! Sk1, I like to think that time is a point and that space is pointless. smile.gif Does anyone know if anyone else has made this point?

Way back, St. Augustine said something like this: "God is like a circle whose centre is nowhere, and whose circumference is everywhere."

PURE MATHEMATICS
There is a special breed of mathematicians who are exploring concepts like this. For example, check out:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pure_mathematics

And this is just a start. I presume the "set without numbers" figures somewhere in their thinking.

Awesome!

yea, i guess if there is one thing that shows itself time and time again, it's the pattern of the circle.

It seems like it can be seen in everything.

It is the most efficient natural form, which is why its form is seen in planet, orbits, bubbles and atomic structures. A circle can never be drawn accurately, because it can only be drawn at a limited resolution by lines, which is not a true mathematical circle at all.

The circle with a dot in the centre is an ancient symbol for God; the scouts draw it on the ground to signal to others that they've gone home. It is also a symbol for centre. I believe the archer and darts player showing prowess in controlling the natural world is symbolically and metaphorically reaching the truth the closer they get to this centre. But this has little to do with time, and I must have too much of it! wink.gif

Welcome and enjoy your stay smile.gif

Rick: In the spirit of dialogue:

You say, "Time is not real." Is this the same as saying: Time is not a reality? If so, what is a reality?

Theres a seperate discussion on Time in another thread, probably best to read over that and pose the questions in there. To answer your question though, time is a mental construct and not necessarily reality.

Hallow,

Time is a sequence of all events in the Universe(s). As they are quite many (the events on all levels, even on subatomic levels) it is hard to figure out the sequence of events Due to fluctuations sometimes it is hard to find the cause and effect: synchronization aspects still matter of debate. So we have quite interesting time whirls so to say.
