Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman. Join us here on Plus Ultra Tech as we re-examine the highlights, and fill in the gaps.
Throught the Wormhole : Does Time Exist gives tribute to the father of time - or at least the father of questioning time; Paraminides. He suggested time was an illusion, and if we could step out of time, we could view it as one stagnant piece.
Trough the Wormhole's segment on Paraminides may have be inspired by the below video's art style. Watch below for a quick recap of Paraminides' theory, and judge for yourself.
The 2nd law of thermodynamics; entropy, was carefully questioned by Terrance McKenna, who was absent from this entire video. Herein lies the biggest flaw of this episode as he has garnished the respect of many with his radical concepts such as; The Omega Point and his Time Wave Zero software program. Terrance MeKenna died in 1999 and has been missed every day since.
This mindset is most compatible with the linear human mind, as stated in detail in The First Dimension, "We think in a linear fashion, and there is currently no way for us to process thought otherwise."
Does Time Exist - The 30steps Conclusion
In a word; yes.
The word "time", as artist John Volanin pointed out my be antiquated. Perhaps, we need a new word for this perceived series of events. I propose my favorite word; PROGRESS
Through The Wormhole does a great job of contemplating the consciousness aspect of time, but modern quantum physics is telling us consciousness actually makes up the universe. So, the element of consciousness in explaining time should not be understated.
Each of us individually drives the universe through our consciousness. We may be consciousness jumping to various frames of animation, or conscious beings collapsing the world around us into the state we perceive. Either way, this only makes me consider just how limited our sight of the universe really is...
Imagine for a moment you can percieve all those frames of instants, or perceive the universe before the act of observation causes wave function collapse. In my opinion, this is the next evolution of sight. To see the universe fast enough, and then choose your path on a quantum level. We are just beginning to enter this realm of possibility through quantum mechanics. Once we can truly see our options, and collapse wave function to a desired state, then we will have stepped up a notch in our ability of controlling our destiny. Then the next perceivable step would perhaps be going non-linear, multi-dimensional time.
