Bob: I don’t see it as a mystery.
By “mystery”, I mean that even though our reality is “timeless”, we – including me – are all living in a time bound way. On the average, I check the “clock”half a dozen times a day, and the calendar more than once a week. To me, this is astonishing considering I quit my job more than 6 years ago just to get off the time-locked economic treadmill the rest of the world is on. I even bought a sailboat to get away from time-stuck humanity. No way. The sun, moon and stars entrapped me out there in the Pacific. And my provisions, that kept dwindling, reminded me to head for shore.
My only concern is that so many accept that it is something physical, something real. Not that their wrong thinking causes me any problem – it doesn’t – but I don’t think it is helpful or beneficial at all.
What good would it do even if the whole world saw that time doesn’t exist, or an artifact of the memory? As I told you above, it’s still the same old way of life. We would still live by the ticking clock.
I’d like to believe that the effort spent in pursuing this wrong idea could be better spent in another direction.
What other direction? Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that there is no benefit to realizing that time doesn’t exist. The implication is tremendous. It’s life-transforming.
