How could be that nothing contains space? If the scientists are to be believed time had a beginning earlier than anything.It was nothing and time was non-existent, it is that we tie time to the fabric of space. If there is space, there is time. Now nothing had no space thus there was no time. It is like saying the real numbers 1, 2,3… and so on exist but there was moment when 1 could not exist since there was no space. The 1 is an abstraction of time itself which has nothing to do with space so it could exist prior to any space. For time we could say it is a numerical order that has nothing to do with any relation to any events happening. So time could occur without space and the number 2 only means that it exists prior to the numerical order in time. That means for events 1,2 and 3, 2 though occurs after 1 was present prior to occurring in the future cone of time.
It is a possibility that one dimension of time is ever existent like a series of real numbers which doesn’t require any space.But then time is not for correlating events as which has happened before but is the abstraction through which events could unfold in spacetime continuum and without space it could abstract nothing but abstraction itself when the abstraction is pure without having an instance in space.
Yes! The whole future is fixed prior to the creation of matter as time is ever present in its own dimension, that is time is dimensionless though space could be thought to exist in other dimensions. Dimensionless time could mean time can exist independent of space. As time is unreal it remains tied to its own dimension. Time could be assumed to exist indefinitely irrespective of the matter as it is unreal. Unreal in the sense that it could not be felt through consciousness yet time affects the consciousness in subtle ways.
Time is an abstraction while space is real thus all the abstractions could be thought of following the time dimension. So we intuit things as per the abstractions formed which in turn are derived from time. Then all the things we abstract we abstract from dimensionless time as their abstract existence exists prior to our intuition of them. This proves that time is eternal. If time is eternal it must be existing prior to the happening of now in discrete manner.
If there is nothing, what change does time measure? It simply goes on ticking, the passing of motion as that of heavenly bodies but when I am not moving still time occurs for me. It must mean there is point existence of time besides than a dimension of time tied to space.
If there is no matter to measure change, time still could occur as time is infinite. We measure the numerical order of material change, i.e., motion in space. A body moving from position a to b has infinitely divisible change that could be calculated over an integral thus finite in existence. Since the change in matter is infinitely occurring and signifying time as infinite. Time could occur independent of motion and hence mass.
For Einstein all motion is relative which implies there is consciousness that must be observing the universe. So it is the consciousness that is causing curvature of time and space ,while space if finite, time is infinite which makes it possible to exist at the point of creation of the universe that is time existing independent of space. Which means when nothing was existing time was eternal and is still eternal when there is something that is called space.
Occurrence of event is time and no occurrence is copy of past or future depending upon if the event is yet to occur otherwise it must be past. If it never occurred it must be the future so we could travel between the time occurrences. Einstein proposed time as occurring relative to motion and also time continues to occur when there is no motion. Sitting you are moving into future and receding away from the event in opposite direction could take you into the past. So as we move further away from the western coast of the US we move into the past while travelling towards London we move into the future. Since the distances are covered in finite period of time we remain in ‘now’ as time is extending into infinite future. Thus for me the future is fiction which out of finite possibilities happen in a particular occurrence that is already stored in the future slice of time.
Like the possible combinations I can have with three cards out of a deck of cards, time has infinite combinations out of which I draw say only three occurrences as to what is happening to me ‘now’. As I read those three occurrences like when I brought wine, I lost my wallet and with it my driving license. The purchasing of wine is an occurrence corresponding to which I lost my wallet which is another occurrence. These occurrences run through in future is time travel prior to their call for happening.
Entropy, the degree of randomness in the system is perceived to be increasing as we make meaningful dialogue with the nature and scientists after much effort tend to bring the scheme of things in proper light only because they find increase in entropy. Time opposes the conceptions of physics as Einstein found in relativistic nature of Time with time as manifesting in nature beginning with the idea of building the perceived ‘order’ in nature and decreasing the entropy so that man could enter into a meaningful dialogue that goes beyond cause and effect. Science is open to causal study of nature and hardly believes in what that could not be observed like abstracting present and therefore everything from the immense sea of future when the effect precedes the cause,leaving us with time. I want to know the effects of being restrained to say a region and therefore I am more interested in facts which appear as effects and lesser concerned with causes that is precisely what cybernetics does, using time as it is an effect. Cybernetics build a facade of communication and control over a machine such that it produces the effects say of being a man and raises questions like could machines have future? It is the most difficult question on the planet earth as it is difficult to say no since the universe itself is a juggernaut of a machine abstracting itself in our psyche. The machine though could have causes for its existence, its the behavior produced by cybernetics that is the challenge such that future exists as one big sea of fiction from where man draws his ideas as he ushers into the era of futuristic yet modern times.
Time exists tenseless, eternal within the consciousness, it is not moving like space but unlike space is relative to the experience of motion. If it is stationary then how does we progress towards infinite time that beacons us in the future. We must not bother about the direction of time as to moving forward or backward. It is that the ever present now happens out of the fictional content of future like a ripple being caused by the throw of stone in the river so here the river is all the experience of man that is creating an illusion of happenings which we mistakenly dub as facts and then rearrange the facts according to the rules we have built about the motion in the solar system. Thus we deduce the synchronicity of events as to which is happening when and where. The human experience has the abstractions which create the order in the world and these abstractions yield to us from the sea of fiction, a moment or happening as to what has been established as an event in the space.
So time though unreal is illusionary but the progress into the fiction,moving forward into time dimension is real but stationary as you don’t cover distance to move further along the time dimension hence motion is the property of space.
Universe could exist in either of three states
- Infinite space and no time. Where God lives.
- Finite universe where we live.
- Time singularity where is breakdown of time space continum as time becomes infinite space could not be reached.
God must have created our universe to avoid time singularity.
