Linear Thinking

Recommended Posts

Humanity definitely perceives the world in a linear fashion. While I was editing a video, I realized that the entire process is based on everything proceeding in a line. It's time line based. It is the same for Flash programming, audio editing, etc. Why? We space things out so that it doesn't all happen at once. Is this also our brain's response to the concept of time? Does our brain make time linear in order for us to understand and it and not perceive everything at once? If so, can we then perceive all space and time at once when we die and our energy no longer has a brain to sort everything out? And can this concept help us time travel?

 

What are your thoughts?

Yup, You got Paula! It is a hard concept for me as well, but we are just hairless monkey humans?

I perceive the biological brain to simply be a terminal connecting the external consciousness to a biological body.

So, then, without the brain would we perceive only chaos?

Disclaimer: Here is where I need to leap away from Physics and go into theology/philosophy.

 

I think consciousness/soul is separate from the body. You actually perceive more outside of it. Many example theories of this, out of body experiences, NDE, etc. Just my Philosophy, cant back this up with Science.

The introduction of time vector is a method of allowing us to understand additional information. Imagine all sound in a conversation came all at once. Assuming our brains could disassemble all the frequencies and understand the concept of the conversation, there would be no information left over to produce inferred information ....such as a pause that would allow one to contemplate if one is thinking or lying, or remembering. Likewise, a facial expression, or eye twitch may not be sequenced in such a way to make you suspect a person could be lying. So time, as a vector dimension, allows us to create and understand an additional permutation of information over the first three dimensions. I'm not explaining this great, it maybe you understand what I'm trying to say?

 

The most profound result of time, as a vector, can be demonstrated with a double slit experiment...

This Will Mindfuck You: The Double-Slit Experiment

 

Now imagine a star, deep in the universe....or a single candle flame for that matter... the photons coming from it expand outward in all directions....sometimes for billions of light years, and with the right optic equipment could be visible from anywhere. If a photon acts as a particle and has mass, then the spherical plane of the candle flame light a billion light years away would have a cumulative mass many times greater than the candle itself.....unless of course, the particle gets to choose when to act a particle.

 

So what is the specific reason a photon in the double slit experiment acts as particle or a wave?

 

Science, religion, and the realm inbetween.

A Photon has no mass.............................

The human perception of time is only through clocks and the rotation of the planet, let say that the Earth no longer rotated on it axis and was fixed, still under that processional influence of the gravity well of the Sun, then all the days would be the same on one side and all of the nights on the other side, the human would have not reference point measure the passing of time from and at this point time would conceptualized there would be an all at once event for our time,but for the rest of the still rotating universe their perception and their MEASURE of time would remain static and going back to the learned Herbert George Wells who had a very informative description of time travel, the eyes, the body and the brains perception is greatly altered to the point that not only is time imperceptible but also space as well

Excellent point. Hypothetically, if that happened one day (and hypothetically no disasters occurred because of it), would we as humans change? Could we even survive or does it matter if we have those reference points or not? I personally believe our biology depends on our perception of time here on Earth. We sleep for 8 hours, our babies take certain amounts of time to grow...etc... Similarly, would humanity adapt if we were moved to a different planet with a totally different time reference? Would our menstrual cycles and sleep cycles change, or would we become ill because it isn't what we are used to?

I do believe that the circadian rhythm is biological and they would take a primary to an temporal changes due to entropy
