The illusion of the past and the future

What if I tell you there is no past and no future? Would you be curious to know why?

Let me begin by asking you a question. Did you ever jump into the future or the past and did something there? If you didn’t, the chances are at any point of time, you must have been in the present.

The logical question then is, we plan for the future all the time and we remember the past, then how don’t they exist?

The short answer is, they are the constructs of the mind.

The explanation is simple, whenever we are planning for the future, we are doing so in the present. We are putting a set of instructions for ourselves for the present continuum. The present is never ending, hence the illusion of the future. We synchronize our present continuum with that of the others to accomplish tasks and goals.

The whole system which we are in I reckon, is being born and is dying at the same instance, while what is being born is generated based on what just died.

All I can wonder is, what an efficient process it is!

I do not know the algorithm of the births!

P.S: Time travel, hmm.. maybe not.. in any direction or dimension!

    I liked your article and it is refreshing to read your thoughts on this topic but one thing is I feel I am left hungry. This is an interesting topic and I was expecting the topic to be covered in more finer details. Seeing the photo of Albert Einsten on your post I thought there would be some reference to his research on this topic.
