Yeah, it’s a cheeky observation because it takes all Existence and its inhabitants as being constantly in the middle of time, constantly creating time, and exploring potentials of where time can take it all to.
Can it be accepted that the emergence of Existence into our Universe, thereby creating the Universe, occurred on the boundary between Existence and what cannot truly be called ‘non-Existence’? A self-composed ‘moment’ created the middle of before and after, and that middle is equally positioned between before and after, constantly moving equidistant between the extremes as the latter splits its skin while the former becomes wholly confined as the moment expands itself.
The beginning is like elements composing rock formed by layers of material pressured into altering its properties, where just one form of a specific element within is surrounded by ever-increasing hardness of the whole, and its circumstances turn it into a gem-of-a-kind. The surface of this rock meets an other material which spreads away in ever thinning densities until there are but single atoms inhabiting vast spaces, and then even the components of atoms are spread so thin in space that atoms are not able to form, and then there is no space and no potential for things to inhabit that space because there is no potential for time to invest in. The only potential for what lays beyond this comes from what is pushing from behind, forcing time to thicken into a moment that has to happen.
The vast amount of moments between the extremes are blocks of space and time which separate moments from other moments, and we constantly estimate those blocks for what they are composed of, and where the ‘gem’ hides. For ourselves, we wonder what that ‘gem’ is and what we would do with it once it is found...but we aren’t really sure what we are seeking because there is so much normalcy surrounding it that we just aren’t sure about it even when we are holding it...time keeps moving and shifting our middle until forward motion overtakes our middle, and we find we are closer to the end of our own time than we are to our beginning...and we estimate all kinds of things we can hold and see them for all manner of ‘gems’ that can make us feel rich and satisfied, or wonder at the perception of there still being something quite special that just hasn’t been uncovered yet.
We only know this because others say there is. Hmm...would it be better to say: I like banana-flavoured and you like vanilla-flavoured, but it’s still ice cream?
Or is it better to say: Taste this and tell yourself what it’s not like?
If you prefer the latter, you know exactly what you are not. The former?...you know exactly what you are.
I wonder what a one caret diamond would think about it once being a room-full of carbon atoms that were once so thinly spread in space that time didn’t even bother with the perception of it? Hmm...perceiving that which cannot perceive it...talk about an Adam, Eve and God moment.
And what about some kind of 'holo' description? Even a diamond exists while not being perceived by some outside perciever...if a tree falls in a forest and no-one there to hear it, does it still make a sound?
If someone can perceive the tree, forest, someone and sound as concepts and not just part of an event, did the event actually occur and is there even someone to even conceive the idea?
Bugger 'holo'-anything...it just shifts the goal-posts...
