Existence is not time, and time is not existence
I am finding it necessary at this juncture to explain how my perception of existence and time are two separate elements.
An understanding of the following concept was vital to clearing the hurdle of discomfort in regards to eternity.
It was not till many years later did I realize it was the concept of existence and not time that was the culprit.
Yes, I found a way to co-exist with time as a quasi linear eternal event. Yet eternity, really was not the root of the issue.
It was the birth of a relatively intangible thought, as the following shall reveal.
Existence is undefinable, and absent of limits and laws. It is also unimaginable, as we only attempt to understand it through our biases and perception. Our vision corrupts it through our experience and knowledge.
It is nothing yet everything.
It is forever and yet the beginning
It is a single point yet limitless
All times begin and diminish within existence
All times and events are eternal within existence.
From existence the dimensions arise. The first most likely being perception than time. Without the perception from matter and energy, time is not relevant.
Perception need not be consciousness
