If you observe every experience you live when you are in it, the way you perceive the experience will change.


Is our perception of time going to change any soon?

"Time is forever dividing itself toward innumerable futures..." ~ The Garden of Forking Paths, J.L. Borges 

For centuries, the human mind has adapted itself to think linear, according to the concept of time; "yesterday", "today" and "tomorrow", time being the most relevant construction of our lives. When we observe the concept of time as a more complex entity, time being a constant in many different dimensions; our perceptions of it are not changing concurrently. Why?
Most likely, it is because of us being habitual creatures as human beings. Our brains ability to construct data is through memory and memory works best when it captures the moments via chronological order. Otherwise, I suppose that we would go insane not perceiving our daily lives moment by moment. But perhaps, by thinking about time in a more complex manner, we can prepare our own evolution. -Scientists say that the prefrontal cortex of the human brain is responsible for constructing data according to chronological order and also it is the most capable part of the brain that has plasticity- Let's say that we have managed all. This means that the only problem left is our daily lives. How are we going to integrate this new concept into it? Maybe, in the search of a time machine, we don't realize that our own brains are the ultimate masters of time, having the capability of going through back and forth in time and space, being the most sophisticated machine of all "times".

"Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps, down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision." ~Ayn Rand


The Idea of “Uniqueness”


“Is there more than one of anything?” This question made me think of the idea of being one and complete. How are we, each of us, or the smallest particle recognized in our perception, one within ourselves? If you consider the fact that there are parallel universes outside one’s own perception in different dimensions, how are “you” unique? Think about it. You exist in this world in different realms but you are not conscious of it, not yet. And still, there is an idea that you are one and only, not found anywhere else. Does the Nathatlie that decide to get up at 3.00 in the morning recognize the one that sleeps till 7.00am? When I wake up in the morning and consider three other options do I not manifest them as well? So all these five separate entities make one, don’t they?

Now let’s consider a photon. A scientist from the University of Vienna, Anton Zellinger, has claimed that he has been teleporting photons for over ten years. He says that, during the teleportation, the information of the particle travels but not the photon itself. Also, the information of the “actual” photon disappears. This may mean that the photon did not experience two different realities at once. It is either “there” or “here” which means that it has been transformed. If it did exist in two different realms at the same time, I would have asked whether it was a unique energy unit.

Humans haven’t experienced teleportation yet but in theory we live in alternate realities and we live in the world of possibilities. If we are not conscious of the “I” in these alternate universes, are we truly complete and unique or is the comprehension of the idea enough?
