Come Down In Time


"It's all now you see.

Yesterday won't be over until tomorrow,

tomorrow began ten thousand years ago."

William Faulkner

Time




time is defined herein as:

a series of moments

a linear way to envision events

of, relating to, or measuring passage of moments

a system by which event intervals are measured and numbered

a nonspatial continuum in which events occur in irreversible succession



it is possible to stop time !

Echoes Of Time

Time and Consciousness

Physicist explains why time travel isn't possible

Scientists find evidence for 'chronesthesia,' or mental time travel


What is time?

"What is time? It is a secret - lacking in substance and yet almighty."

Thomas Mann, from The Magic Mountain.



It is as impossible to comprehend the flow of time in the same way it is impossible to step into the same river twice.

Originally even in ancient Greece time was conceived of as cyclical.

The seasons cycle, life cycles, the moon cycles - an ebb and flow - forever repeating a pattern in a cyclic nature.

The concept of cyclical time was universal among cycle of life cultures.

Aztecs made use of a calendar carved in a huge circular stone, the Sun Stone.

Hindu tradition conceptualizes time as cyclical.

The concept of time as linear is unique to the Mediterranean region.

Three cultural groups - Hebrews, Greeks and Persians - seemed to have conceptualized time as an irreversible process with a unique beginning and a unique end at about the same period in human history.

They replaced the concept of time as cyclical around the Age of Zoroaster.

These three completly different conceptualizations of reality - Law of Moshe Rabbenu, Hellenism and Zoroastrianism - transformed, merged and eventually evolved into Gnostic Christianity.

The Roman Catholic Christian conceptualization of time as an irrevocable process condemns the concept of cyclic time as a superstition.



Time After Time

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?


Time present and time past

Are both perhaps present in time future

And time future contained in time past.


What might have been and what has been

Point to one end, which is always present.

Footfalls echo in the memory

Down the passage which we did not take

Towards the door we never opened


At the still point of the turning world.

At the still point, there the dance is

Time past and time future allow little consciousness.

In my beginning is my end.

A lifetime burning in every moment

Where here and now cease to matter.

The river is within us

Time the destroyer is time the preserver

Fare forward, travellers!

Into different lives, or into any future;

You are not the same people who left that station

Or who will arrive at any terminus,

While the narrowing rails slide together behind you

Here between the hither and the farther shore

While time is withdrawn, consider the future

And the past with an equal mind.

For most of us, there is only the unattended Moment,

the moment in and out of time,

The distraction fit, lost in a shaft of sunlight,

The wild thyme unseen, or the winter lightning

Or the waterfall, or music heard so deeply

That it is not heard at all, but you are the music

While the music lasts.

A people without history

Is not redeemed from time, for history is a pattern

Of timeless moments.

We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time.

8th century BC

Hesiod, a Greek historian, described five ages of mankind, beginning with the Golden Age in the remote past, where human beings lived in peace with each other and in harmony with nature, down to the Age of Iron, characterized by dispute and warfare.

305 BC

Pharisees in Alexandria begin to codify Torah and scribe it onto scolls after Ptolemy I Soter declares himself Pharaoh of Egypt, founds a new religion and declares himself the Son of Aten.

2nd century BC

Hebrews use the narrative format of Herodotus to create the Septuagint.

early 5th century AD

Augustine of Hippo argues for a linear concept of time in City of God.

Yet Augustine of Hippo, in Confessions, asks:

"What is time? I know well enough what it is, provided that nobody asks me; but if I am asked what it is and try to explain, I am baffled."

1620

Christian mystic Teresa shares the Eternal Moment.

18th century

Enlightenment philosophers suggest time is an endless process.

19th century

Nietzsche states "all desire yearns for eternity."

20th century

TS Eliot sees a timeless present, "the still point of the turning world."



millennium



a millennium from NOW

In the beginning,
once upon a time,
in a non-existent galaxy,
a trillion light years away,
there was Nothing.

then SOMETHING happened !

not quite sure what it was as no one was there to see what it was ...

but you know how it is - Jesus said "BANG!"

- anyhow to get back to telling tale tales -

molecules collapsed upon themselves under immense gravitational force

roaring hydrogen furnaces come into Being

spinning, energy modulations twirl away into the Void

gyrating energy modulations pirouette


and COLLIDE and COLLIDE and COLLIDE !

finally enough molecular variation to create LIFE congeals

electromagnetic storms energize the Primordial Soup and SPARK LIFE !!!

Eons pass but not in stasis ... LIFE becomes more complex.

Eons pass again ... LIFE becomes aware of ITSELF ...

LIFE, afraid of living, hides waking conscious behind a Cognitive Veil.

LIFE gazing into THE GARDEN sees Itself and thinks "I am a Gardener!"

Time travel destabilizes history.



"History is a child of contingency.

Events depend on critical misunderstandings or transient encounters stirring up a storm the apocryphal butterfly's wing is in short order.

A single misunderstood telegram in June of 1916 permitted the Bolshevik revolution; a single spy in 1958 extended the Cold War by a decade.

In a universe which permits time travel, history itself becomes unstable.

The diabolical mechanism must edit itself out to restore equilibrium.

But that's scant comfort for the trillions of entities who silently cease to exist in the wake of a full-blown time storm.

It's hardly surprising that, whenever intelligent beings arise in such a universe, they seek to use closed timelike curves to prevent extinction.

Faster-than-light travel being possible, general relativity tells us that it is indistinguishable from time travel; and this similarity makes the technologies of total annihilation dreadfully accessible.

In the small, stupid little organizations like The New Republic seek to gain advantage over their contemporaries and rivals.

In the large, vast, cool intellects seek to stabilize their universe in the form most suitable to them.

Their tampering may be as simple as preventing rivals from editing them out of the stable historical record - or it may be as sophisticated as meddling with the early epochs of the big bang, back before the Higgs field decayed into the separate fundamental forces that bind the universe together to ensure the right ratio of physical constants to support life." - Charles Stross



"Time is concomitant with the physical world

but can not be pointed to as existing in a material way."

Tenzin Gyatso



Time is abstract. To think of time is to think abstractly.

When people reason about abstraction, they tend to imagine something concrete that the abstract thing is like and then reason about that instead.

But we cannot create a concrete mental image of an abstract concept such as time which is fluid, perhaps the reason time analogies flow.

The Hindus thought of time as cyclical.

The Greeks thought of time as linear - one day follows another.

Thinking of time as either cyclical or as linear is incorrect.

Thinking of time as a spatial dimension is incorrect - as if time acts in space.

'The past is behind us', 'the future is in front of us' and 'days pass us by'.

People think and speak as if moving away from a yesterday located 'over there' toward a tomorrow located '180 degrees in the opposite direction.'

On a time line drawn by a Christian the past is on the left.

On a time line drawn by a Muslim the past is on the right.

On a time line drawn by a Mandarin the past is at the bottom.

It may very well be conceptually impossible to grasp the essence of time.



"The magical word is one that lets "a primordial word
resound behind it"'; magical action releases primordial action.
Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Pages 63

Quantum Physics Proves God's Existence

Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning

Scientists Discover a Jewel at the Heart of Quantum Physics



Imagine an Infinite Cone of Existence floating in the eternal noumenon.

The five levels of Human Consciousness can be described as resting on progressively higher levels of the Infinite Cone of Existence.

Archaic Consciousness rests at the Foundation where Archetypes form.

At the Apex of the Cone of Existence within sight of Integral Consciousness rests the Doorway to the Ineffable.

Paradoxically only those operating in either Archaic Consciousness, at Foundation, or Integral Consciousness, at the Apex, can actually get a glimpse of the noumenon.

Myopians, comfortably rest on shelves within the other three forms of human consciousness - magical, mythical and rational.

Myopian perspective at each moment is shaded by prior events, circadian rhythm, nutrition and sometimes, unfortunately, pharmaceutical alchemy.

The ability to describe the mystical experience, of seeing through a crack and communing with the Ineffable, is dependent upon the ability of the mystic to describe that vision conceptually through metaphorical allegory.

In the attempt to convey an experience that, in truth, cannot be put into words many mistakes are made.





Mystics have difficulty in symbolically conceptualizing that experience and in relating those abstract symbolic concepts to others.

Tangible material experiences can be related with concrete examples whereas intangible spiritual experiences must be related through abstract concepts with concrete examples used in a metaphorical manner.

Metaphor taken literally corrupts conceptualiztion to the point that people mistakenly conceptualize the Ineffable as residing in a supernatural realm.

A multitude of religions claim to be the One True Religion.

Adherents lose sight of the fact - the Ineffable can never be visualized.

This makes it nearly impossible to model the Ineffable.

Martin Luther and countless others claimed people do not need intercessors to commune with the Ineffable but hissing Snakes suggest otherwise.

Snakes encourage acceptance of hardships and even sacrifice.

Religious dogma has no place for critical thinkers as it demands blind adherence to orthodoxy.

Snakes discourage direct communion with the Ineffable as, once this occurs, they can no longer serve as intercessors.

A false conceptualization of the Ineffable acts as a barrier to communion.

Superficial abstractions, illusions, only frustrate the individual.

Many people know, deep down inside, that religious dogma is a sham but they are told endlessly that the only way for their children to grow up to be moral is for them to practice religion as if they believed the dogma to be true.

This perpetuates a false understanding of the Ineffable and of humanities relation with the Ineffable.

The Ineffable never demands an individual fallible human conceptualize the Ineffable in the exact same manner as a Snake.

This is what Jesus the Tannaim was trying to get humanity to understand.

Jesus Words within the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke condemn ritual practices, flowing robes, gowns and special priestly clothing, public prayer, vain repetitive utterances, and the false religious leaders of his time which he branded as insincere hypocrites.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
