A world without time (addenda) 

Below is an old post from the BBB last December which I felt was worth reposting here.
   It also dawned on me that made one of the earliest steps into getting us to think of a world (if not ) without time, or least one where it wasn’t a constant. His good friend theorized it in a paper about , and to quote the Publishers’ Weekly summary of a book on the subject, ‘But if one can travel through time, how can time as we know it exist in these other , since the past is always present? And if time doesn't exist in other universes, then it may not exist in ours either.’
   I’ll try to refrain from repeats after this one—and rest assured the next few posts below are brand-new. Here goes.

A friend of mine records her, and sometimes her husband’s , and this one came across as quite inspiring:

[He] dreamed last night that he was trying to get the people of the world to forget everything they previously knew about “”. There would be no more dates, hours, years … He had convinced me easily but was going out into the world to try to get this to happen. Interesting, huh? He felt it would change so much.

It would certainly get us over the mentality. are almost like that—unlike and , there is no fixed In fact, some online magazines are the same. When they come out, they have passion, rather than fatigue, behind them, because they have been given the time to mature.
   It makes sense in many ways—already are saying they need new models every six months because the novelty of a car doesn’t stay for two years any more. Remove the notion of time, and this would not matter.
   I know: some of you are thinking ‘!’ Perhaps so—but I know that we have sacrificed for time in this day and age. And we keep saying that we want more trust in our business and personal . If we weren’t so ingrained into an society, we might rediscover that level of trust once more.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
