as humans experience things only as fast as
we can sense it. For example, lets say you were
blind and deaf and the only sense you had was
smell. How long would it take you to know that
there is a pie baking? You would have to wait
and wait until you finally smelled it.
You only understand that a pie is baking after
around a minute. But now lets give this person
another sense. The sense of hearing. Now he
can understand what is going on much faster,
as he can hear the oven roar and the
crust bake. Now suppose we give him yet another
sense - the sense of sight. Now all he has to
do is to look with his eyes and he would see
the pie baking in the oven. He understands what
is going on in a nanosecond (since light travels
faster than sound). It is also true that he
only understands what is going on after the
image is picked up by his eyes then goes on
its journey into his brain through pulses, etc.
That leaves the question: when exactly do things
happen? We MUST wait for light to bounce off
the event to absorb in our eyes and then travel
to our brains to know that something happened.
We think that we saw something exactly when
it happened, but that is a false perception.
Whenever we perceive something, it is always
after it has already happened. We can only see
the past. So what happens to everything in-between?
What if there are so-called particles that move
faster than light? Would we be able to pick
them up? We woulden't think so at first thought
because we believe the fastest sense we have
is sight. Think of what we see as a long roll
of film. The film is made up of thousands of
little boxes next to each other and is played
on a projection screen. Now, say our eyes are
only able to see the every fifth box, because
light isn't fast enough to pick up the first,
second, third or fourth boxes. Of course since
we are born seeing only every fifth box, we
think it is normal to only see the fifth box.
This example is just a tiny tiny tiny example
of how much we could be missing that is going
on in our universe.
is only an illusion. After all, the best example
is when we see a supernova with the Hubble telescope,
we think two galaxies collided. But in reality
we know that they actually collided millions
of years ago. We had to wait for the light to
finally reach us. It is sometimes even said
the Hubble telescope is a time machine. When
we open its lenses, are seeing the universe
as it was millions of years ago - the farther
away in space, the further back in time. We
understand what happened way after it happened.
We think what is happening is happening now,
but now is just an illusion - there is no now.
Past, present and future are mixed up into one.
Then are the secrets to how the Egyptians built
the pyramids really gone? Of course not.
Right now some alien civilization three thousand
light years away is staring at Earth with a
telescope and can see the Egyptians building
the pyramids. In fact, they have no clue that
we have computers, cars, airplanes, etc. because
they can only see the past. Every trillionth
of a nanosecond of "time" is instantly stored
in an ounce of light and beamed across the universe.
This means that every instant of time that ever
existed has been stored.
what we now know is that every instant of time
is infinitely stored in a unit of light that
travels at the speed of light through space.
Though the speed at which it is moving is astronomical,
every unit of time is indeed stored, traveling
through our universe. If it is stored in light,
could it be stored in other ways not yet known
to man? Perhaps it is stored in something that
a "fourth dimensional" being could
"step" into and therefore go back in time. What
if that unit of light (or whatever else it may
be) could be tapped into? Held indefinitely?
Altered? Think of it like this. Suppose I am
in space and I am looking down at a closed house.
Now, we know every instant of time is being
stored in a unit of light. But where does this
light go if there are four walls surrounding
it? It cannot go into space because the roof
of the house is blocking it. But by theory we
know that it is in fact being stored. In that
respect, I am applying the theory I stated before
about units of time being preserved by light
and other ways into this idea. It must always
be true if it is a theory. So there is a lamp
in the closed house and obviously different
things are happening every billionth (whatever)
of a second. Along with every nanosecond, a
new beam of light shines off everything in the
room. Then the lamp is shut off. What happens
to the old light that was there a nanosecond
ago? The old light that just reflected off something
in the room (thereby holding a unit of time)
a nanosecond ago needs somewhere to go (because
it cannot be destroyed). If you stood outside
of the room could you see the light escape out
of the room? Perhaps not. However, we now know
that no matter what, light that holds a moment
of time is somewhere, stored somehow. Maybe
it is invisible to us humans. Perhaps in the
fourth dimension, one could access that "lost"
unit of light.
