Sooo, I been thinking lately … What if there was no time? That’s not possible; we humans would invent it so we could keep a record of all the important things we do (sarcasm).

Humans are creatures of habit. If we do the same things enough times, overtime, it becomes a habit. That habit is a new way we learned to spend part of our time doing a new thing that will soon become an old thing. This time thing is a pretty big part of our existence and most of us never consider it, I guess that is why TIME is considered the Fourth Dimension in our 3-D world.  Time is this thing that exist in space; OUR space.  Another post on this thing →  Time for change

In our space, TIME measures our motion through it. This sequential series of events leads toward a beginning, and an end. Newtonain theory ( for Sir Issac Newton) says it is absolute in reality, regardless of human perception. Time is a in, a thing containing evidence of life’s past, present and future. No matter who you are or where you’re at, time is the same.marbles

I asked a Physicist to teach me to tell time. She told me that each event no matter how small is a marble and and each marble is in a bowl (a container). No marble can be removed, only added. That’s when I asked my question 💡 What if you broke the bowl? All the marbles fall on the ground, everywhere, they are joined together. There is no more past or future, everything is now and everything is known.

In Sunday school I was taught God is Omnipresent: being present everywhere at the same time. God is also Omniscient: knowing everything. So what does a mischievous boy do with this knowledge 👿 Well, I can tell you what he doesn’t do  😀

What if there was NO timeHuman face with question markThat would mean no limit, as in, no container.  STOP for a moment and consider this.

I presented this idea to a patient that struggled with the grief of losing his wife to cancer. The official diagnosis is protracted bereavement (over 6 months). Even in grief there’s a time limit. My patient was a man of faith, so death of the human body did not mean the end of life, but that offered little comfort for the loss he felt now. He often referred to time, both past and future, the thought of which increased his pain. Time had become more than a limit, it was now a source of pain.

As a man of faith, I suggested that we are created in the image of God: imago Dei.

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image…   Gen. 1:26 

Since we are created in the image of God, it stands to reason that when the body dies the container is broken. If the container is broken, then there is no limit. as in, no time. And if there is no time, everything is present. As in, everything is now connected (rejoined) at the same moment. Past and future do not exist. What does that mean? Think about it and then have a conversation and talk it out. Amazing things happened when we bounce our ideas off one another.

The body is a container of marbles. Thus the saying: “He is loosing his marbles,”

When the container gets weak and breaks, it’s not the end of life, just the end of time.

I have offered this idea to many people in many different situations: The idea that God is Omnipresent and Omniscient. Everything from the beginning of (A-alpha) to the end (Ω-omega) is known because it’s already occurred.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God…   Rev. 1:8

The idea that everything I do, have done and will do is known because it is all joined (connected), brings me and many others I talk with – peace.
