Sleepwalking my way through life: "Unless of course, God lives outside of time. Which he probably does."



"Unless of course, God lives outside of time. Which he probably does."

Time is odd.

You never have enough of it. It's always going by too quickly. But then at the same time it goes immensly slowly, which is really weird when you think about it.

They say a watched pot never boils. Which means that if you notice that time is moving then it slows down considerably, but if you choose to ignore time and go about your business then it speeds up.
It's like when I look at the closk to see how long I've got left before I can go home, time moves slowly. I'd check it every ten minutes or so, or what seemed like ten minutes, to discover that only a minute had past. But if I ignore it and go on with my work then before I realise it, it's time to go.

In Catch-22 there was a man called Dunbar who believed that if you were bored for your entire life, then you could live for thousands of years. Which is actually true. If he was bored or frustrated and kept noticing time around him, then he could live for an eternity in his lifetime. Of course, he didn't actually live for thousands of years, but from his point of view, he had.

It makes you think.

Me and John came up with a theory in maths that time flowed differently in different areas. For example, our maths class used to have to move to a different class every day, and in each class our perception of time was different.
Mondays we were in a history class, that went moderately fast.
Tuesdays was in a maths class, that went unbearably slow (Granted, it was a double period, but it was slow to begin with).
Wednesdays we were in spanish, and we had barely sat down before we had to leave again.
Thursdays we were in a different maths classroom, and that went quite quickly too.
Fridays we were in a modern studies class and it went really slow.
The point is, when we were in different rooms on differnt days, time moved differently. It was the same boring subject with the same people, yet time moved differntly in each class.

I think that was that was the same day that we proved that God didn't exist.
Man, we were busy that day. No wonder I was crap at maths.

So there we go. I don't really see the point of writing that all out to be honest, but I was thinking about it this morning while doing work.
I kept remembering the times me, John and Chris Gayne sat in a circle at the back of physics in fourth year and how we used to discuss theories and stuff. We talked about parrallel universes, the size of the universe, and we did a whole lot of talking about time and time travel.

As far as I can tell, there are two types of time-travel. And I'm going to explain them with references to help people understand them.
First off is the Back to the Future style. Where if you go back in time, you see yourself do the things you did during that time. Like an out of body experience.
The second one is the Majoras Mask style. Where if you go back in time to a ceratin day or date then you inhabit the body of yourself, getting the chance to do things differently.

But the latter style would be impossible if all time was predecided.

Also, if time was predecided, then there would be no point to time travel. It would be possible to travel back and forward in time, but there would be no gain in it.
For example, if you traveled back in time to warn people about Kennedy being shot or 9/11 happening, it wouldn't matter because it would happen anyway. Because time had already decided that you would go back in time to warn people, but it wouldn't work.
It's the same with seeing a disaster in the future. There would be no point in time travel.
This theory does not disprove God, but it does take away mans right to free will, so it's not very popular.

The other one coinsides with parrallel universes, that every time you go back in time a new one is made. But in this theory of time there is a chance that there is a possibilty that God decided not to create the universe or even, heaven forbid, that God doesn't exist. And if God doesn't exist in one universe then he doesn't exist. Period.
So that one isn't too popular either.

Unless of course, God lives outside of time. Which he probably does.

And now I bring you the effects of time travel. The Chaos Theory has a lot to do with this too. Chaos Theory is when a butterfly flaps its wings and causes a storm on the otherside of the world. Cause and effect.
By the way people, I figured this out long before the butterfly effect came out, so I didn't base my theories on that.
The further you go back in time, the more dangerous it becomes. Say you go back fifty years and kill someone. When you return, lots of things will have changed, but society will more or less be the same.
But say you go back three hundred years and kill someone. That's a whole family lost and the repurcussions could be quite bad. But still, society would have only changed very slightly even though the people inhabiting it would be differnt.
Say you go back a million years to the time of the dinosaurs and you kill a fly. Any number of things can happen. The world could end, molaria could be cured, babies could be born with three legs. The whole status of life and the planet could radically change.

The moral of the story?
Don't go back in time! If you wanna travel through time then go forward. I garuntee it'd be much nicer and less deadly.

And so ends another long and pointless rant of me.

On a side note, I am no temporal expert. All of this is pure thought process and I do not necesarily know what I'm talking about. And, as always, my views and opinions are open for debate. Just comment or e-mail me or something. But I do not want comments about how idiotic I am. Even though it may be true, I do not wish to hear about it.

And also a correction from last post. I now read three blogs that hold my attention every day. It would be four, but he has yet to update.

And last, but by no means least, I wish Laura a very happy birthday.
Hopefully I'll get your present to you sometime this weekend.

Have a good one folks!

I'm at work, I'm bored half the time so I write. Is it a fucking crime or what?

An oh my God! He wrote some of his thoughts on a public forum! Isn't that like illegal? I'm offended, I must shout at him and tell him that this is pointless!

I know that this is pointless, but here's the thing about me, I DON'T GIVE A SHIT. And if you didn't notice, this happens to be my blog, and I can write the Hell I want in it.

I mean, it's not as if your forced to read this really. You do have the option to close that browser window and go onto some otehr website. Infact, go and make your own fucking blog! That'll take up your time flaming other peoples sites.

Jesus, your such an attention seeker aren't you? If you really want to take a few shots at me, my email address is right there. You know, when you click the "Mail Me" button?

Fucking coward.

Joe
