Nobody will probably ever read this. which is just like the rest of my life.
I have spent almost all of my life, at least since I was about 25 in a state of frustration because I realized something important about reality and I can't communicate it. And here's the thing, if everyone realized this "thing" that I saw in 1975 all our problems, global warming, poverty, sickness, everything, would disappear, I swear to God.

Hey look, if you've read this far then I have to tell you, don't waste your time I'm not even going to try to explain it. All I'm willing to say at this point is that it is the most obvious thing there is yet the most elusive to see.

    Time is not linear?

    Linear is the only way to make sense of time/space true, but now is the only time to be in. I'm not saying time doesn't exist, but that more than anything else it is a perceptive mechanism.

    I just asked, because I don't think dogs know time like we do. When I rescued my little poodle from the shelter ten years ago, he KNEW me. I was a volunteer at the shelter and he knew me the first time I showed up. He was so relieved to see me. The truth is I didn't know him at all but the way he acted like he knew me made me take him home.

    Yeah, dogs experience reality as well as time in their own strange way. I mean the whole thing about how they use smell to tell time is weird to me; but I guess it's an indication of how vast reality actually is, no?

    I was thinking maybe we don't have the exact same shirt, because we are the same person. Yeah.

    Well, I would like to know what you both know. I am listening.

    I believe the desire to know is the best educator.What I'm really talking about is something you have to see for yourself. Actually it's something everybody knows but dismisses as not important.

    I can explain it though. I even wrote an entire book explaining it. But it sounded like a bunch of boring bullshit. That was 1990.

    But if it is something you really want ot know, I would say this: There is no time but now and there is no place but here, yet all that exists exists right now.

    And string theory is the theory of everything (TOE). IMO, of course.

    Time present and time past
    Are both perhaps present in time future,
    And time future contained in time past.
    If all time is eternally present
    All time is unredeemable.
    What might have been is an abstraction
    Remaining a perpetual possibility
    Only in a world of speculation.
    What might have been and what has been
    Point to one end, which is always present.
    Footfalls echo in the memory
    Down the passage which we did not take
    Towards the door we never opened
    Into the rose-garden. My words echo
    Thus, in your mind.
    But to what purpose
    Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves
    I do not know.

    Then how do you explain laundry, scars and blisters, mister?

    That was the past man. The past is just a good-bye.
