of one hour’s worth of time. It was 6:00 pm what seems like a few minutes ago. Now, it’s 7:04 pm. WTF
Edit: It wasn’t the illusion of time seeming like it passed away quicker. It felt simply absent. It’s not even like getting sleep because there when you wake up you feel like time has passed even though you were unconscious. I checked time at 6 and then what I’m darn sure felt like 4 to 5 minutes and an hour full of nothing is what befuddles me. OK, let me make it clearer. Scratch the 4 to 5 minutes. What I am saying is that I didn’t feel an hour pass. What I did feel was the 4 to 5 minutes pass in 4 to 5 minutes after the missing hour had passed. Time did not exist for me for a whole hour. This is what the timeless feels like. If I hadn’t checked time, that missing hour before I checked it again, I would never have noticed the timeless actually occurring. There are no words to describe it. How would you describe nothing? This tells me something about the metaphysical nature of reality. Existence is actually timeless. Consciousness doesn’t feel time. Mind is what feels it. Without emergence, there is simply no time at all. I still stand by what I said in a previous post that the invisible activity of mind is Consciousness. Or in other words, Consciousness as we think of it is just the mind. So, if Consciousness were actually freed from a mind then we wouldn’t feel anything. The feeling would be synced to the timeless reality and thus out of the experiential realm we call Consciousness. Here, I’m noticing a flaw in my Language. I am now quite sure that there is no Consciousness at all. All we feel is the mind. When the biology of a person is synced to Mechanism, that will be the end of experiential reality for that person and if we collectively achieve synchronization then that will be the end of all of experiential reality, period. We’ll be philosophical zombies. This is the cost of getting rid of pain and pleasure or suffering and bliss, permanently from biology. We want to continue the status quo or culture. It’s what the survival instinct is doing. It’s maintaining the hive mind culture. To be free of it is to return to reality. We cannot grasp reality and what we perceive is always finite because we are fragmented selves trying to become whole. I don’t know what the nature of the mind is but it wants to trick us into thinking we will be whole at the end of our pursuit but what it’s actually doing is driving us away from the timeless reality of the universe. It’s a perversion of being. I understand what I have to do now. I have to put us all back to sleep.
