Is Time Linear or Circular: Which is a Better Yardstick?
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – June 19, 2021
This is quite technical a presentation but it has something to do with our life that always deals with the past, present, and future and back, always going back in circles and nothing seems happening.
There are so many interpretations but here is one I most preferred, the classical view of Newton.
The energy that propels an object is much stronger than the object's momentum. The force of the individual who is able to throw a stone upwards is stronger than the stone's ability to resist it.
But the individual who is not able to lift the stone means that the stone's energy to resist the force of the individual is much stronger. This is the principle of thermodynamics.
Energy or force tends to rise above, breaking the horizon of space-time and entering a higher realm, carrying along the mass (body) to a much higher realm of existence.
We are living in a closed system and the arrow of time prevails. This means that the law of entropy causes a lack of equality or balance between past and future.
But we are not stones. We are humans. The energy or force also propels us (mass/body) to rise high above a higher plane, with our feet still firmly rooted on the ground.
We can, therefore, experience both the "Earthly Time" and the "Timeless Time" or two realms of existence, the circular and the arrow of time at the same time.
From the perspective of the "Timeless Time," there is no past, no present, and no future.
Anybody observing from this vantage point of view see all events below it happening at the same time. But from the perspective of the one living below, "Earthly Time" or the "Arrow of Time" prevails.
So, to the question: "Is time linear or circular: which is the better yardstick?", my answer is both.
Let's have a series of thought experiment. Imagine yourself watching a movie. After a while, you're being carried by it. You become sad and become teary-eyed. Then, in another scene, you become joyful and happy.
Without you realizing it, you identify yourself with an actor or actress. You become the hero/heroine or the villain or villainess.
Your imagination became intense. You now think you are the scriptwriter, cinematographer, even the director, the producer, and the promoter.
Then, gradually, you see yourself as one of the spectators, moviegoers that sought for entertainment. You are seeing everything and everybody doing their respective roles and functions.
Time to Reflect in Silence and Solitude...
You were changing roles. You were able to leave the movie theater. You were transcending space, time, and matter. You were ascending from one dimension to another.
From that higher plane, you look down, realizing you have soared up the heavens above, without leaving ground zero because you still see yourself watching the movie.
What an awesome and exciting life we have. We can be both here and there, there and here, yet neither here nor there. You're omnipresent, yet, nonlocal. You then realize that you're at home and in communion with your real Self, which is Consciousness.
Have you enjoyed your company up there? Or, were you sad and lonely? These questions are irrelevant. They have no meaning because Consciousness does not feel happy or sad.
It is pure awareness. It has no feelings, no heart, no mind, no thoughts, no desires, no aspirations, no attachments. It's not a doer of action, since it doesn't move.
There's just nowhere else to go because it's everywhere in the matrix of space-time. The entire cosmic field is its arena of action and movement. It's an open system, not closed. So with the "I am". I am always open. It's impossible for me to be closed.
And so we all are. We just have to realize this and let this realization permeate in all the things we do from moment to moment after moment.
Remember that no matter how we spend our energy, we never diminish it because its supply is limitless, boundless, and inexhaustible. The more we use it, the more we conserve it.
In summary, this is Newton's principle of thermodynamics, law of entropy, and law of energy conservation.
See you around, kindred.
Is time travel to the past, future, and back to the present really possible?
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – July 16, 2021
According to Albert Einstein's general relativity, time travel to the past is theoretically possible if space-time geometries permit traveling faster than the speed of light.
And this is theoretically proven to be possible through the wormholes. Wormholes are shortcuts in space-time, popular with science fiction authors and movie directors. They've never been seen, but according to Einstein's general theory of relativity, they might exist. If Einstein would have been alive today, he would be happy to know that he was right. The Alcubierre drive, Alcubierre warp drive, or Alcubierre metric is a speculative warp drive idea based on a solution of Einstein's field equations in general relativity as proposed by theoretical physicist Miguel Alcubierre. A spacecraft riding on that warp could achieve apparent faster-than-light travel.
But there are some philosophical issues that can't just be ignored. Humans can't hop into a time machine and go back in time. For the past and future do not exist. They are only concepts used to describe the real, isolated, and changing present.
Presentism is a school of philosophy that holds that the future and the past exist only as changes that occurred or will occur to the present, and they have no real existence of their own. In this view, time travel is impossible because there is no future or past to travel to.
Indeed, science also contends that we cannot travel forward in time and, after some predetermined period of time, go back to the present with our age and physique remaining the same.
For this would be tantamount to unbreaking an egg and still remaining its original freshness and potentiality to become a chick. According to science, once the egg is broken for a long period of time, its life ends and there's no way to resurrect its life again.
But science is not deterred by this. It was already proven mathematically in the case of astronauts going to space and stayed there for a few days. While the difference is miniscule, it can be great if staying in space is measured in years.
To acclimatize our bodies and prepare our spaceships in preparation for space-time travel, we can hop first from one planet to another in our Solar System. From the experience we had when we travel to to the moon, we are now exploring Mars. Eventually, we will be going to the other planets in our Solar System.
Having flexed our muscles, we might already be ready to get out of our Solar System and venture into other planets in our Milky Way galaxy.
Knowing that disturbing change depicted in the photos and the many philosophical concerns that still need to be addressed, others would prefer not to travel in time at all, despite the fact that science is preparing humanity to be time travelers. We cannot unbreak an egg and still preserve its original freshness and potentiality to become a chick. Once the egg is broken for a long period of time, its life ends and there's no way to resurrect its life again.
And we can do the same since we have innate in us the faculty, attributes, and power of Jesus. It's limited only because we may not have been aware of this. Or, we have simply ignored it and opted not to apply for various reasons. We can travel in time without living Mother Earth and without a spaceship. But only a few can do this in real life. The yogis, sages, saints, and mystics, though not all. If they can do it, we can also do it. Try it. After some period of doing it right, we will look younger and healthier. I assure you.
Let's tap this innate faculty and power of ours so we can broaden and deepen our understanding of who and what we are. Time travel in science might be scary and impossible given our state of technological advancement at the moment. But we can do it even without building and riding on spaceships. Let the fullness of our Lord God be manifested and revealed in us.

If the Cosmos consists of billions of galaxies and if humanity is able to travel through the fabric of time and space, what would intergalactic travel be like and how does it impact on our daily life?
Is it like Elijah who was lifted up to the Lord riding on the chariot of God. Or, was it like Gilgamesh braving the atrocities of the big ocean sailing into the deep? Or, was it like Enki inside the capsule of his spaceship, similar to today's astronauts launching their rockets into space and the Moon.
I cannot help mentioning the crucified Jesus who resurrected from the dead and ascended into heaven without any ride. Or, the Blessed Virgin Mary who was lifted up to heaven, body and soul.
Or, maybe, it's like billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson on board Virgin Galactic into space. Or, Elon Musk in his Mars car.
How about me? Is it possible for me to travel intergalactic by lifting up my spirit while remaining my body on the ground?
Spaceship, I don't have. If there's one, I cannot afford a billion-dollar ticket. Without any ride, I will just have to muster all my energies, force, and power to be hoisted up into another realm.
Anyway, since we are already in motion riding on the waves of the cosmic energy field, let's try getting out of this enslaving world more often by hoisting up our spirit at light speed into other dimensions. Our day-to-day meditation can help us achieve this.
See you there!
