We think we know a lot.
I never knew there were birds with tiger heads.
Pucker up for something even stranger.
We know everything about time, right?
The odd thing is, nobody can explain it. Nobody.
I hope you are treading fast, because the pool runs sideways here.
Time is not absolute. Not even close. The parts we measure are parts that we think into being, and then take for granted as permanent.
In most of The Universe, there is no time, literally. We try to apply our time scale to it, but it just doesn’t work. Nothing fits. We try to pretend it fits by applying large numbers, because large numbers impress everybody.
Here is the rub. Time starts to act wonky beyond the range of our senses.
Time is fractal. It can be really really large or really really small, and the distance between the large and small is not as it seems.
Time scales vary with dimensional density. Time inside a a bowling ball is not the same as time in the air we breath. That’s why our clocks don’t work well at scales that are very large, or very small. We have to add or subtract fudge factors or add new legends to explain why our measurement of time doesn’t work everywhere.
Time is a consequence of how biologics sense dimension. More precisely, time is an artifact of the presence of Higgs Chains, combined with a biologic mechanism that interprets them, or tries to.
We think Higgs Chains propagate through dimension as waves. They really don’t move at all, but they appear to because of the fractal geometry of the medium they appear to traverse.
We invent time to measure the differences between what our senses interpret as waves, or other stuff that appears to move.
In fractals, it is possible to travel a long long way without actually moving much at all. It’s all about the way chaos seems to emerge, then reorganize in fractal patterns.
Higgs Chains appear to us as measurable waves. That’s why we invented time in the first place, to try to measure from one wave to the next. They appear to add and subtract from each other, as they scoot around willy nilly.
If you could see time, it would look like water in a boiling pot, or the surface of the sun. You perceive time because things around you appear to move, but there is a hitch. When stuff speeds up or slows down too much, our world begins to look like a bird with a tiger’s head.
Since almost everything in the Universe is much larger or much smaller than we can imagine, the whole time thing stops working.
But don’t worry. There is a way to understand it.
Really big waves, really teeny waves, it makes no difference, because they are fractals of each other, and we are slowly learning how fractals work.
It is really simple, honest. About time, huh?
