One perpetual present versus linear time

You can compare linear time to the square pixels that makes up one dot on a computer screen being separated from each other and extended into a lines forming a spiral.

You can compare linear time to the square pixels that makes up one dot on a computer screen, when being separated from each other and extended into a line forming a spiral. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You can compare one perpetual present to a dot on a screen of an electronic media. In this metaphor one dot is all there is. The dot, however, is made of an incredible amount of pixels, that are so close together that they cannot be differentiated from each other. That is why it looks like there is only one dot. But if you take the pixels, that the dot consists of, and spread them out in a continuous line extending the dot, you have linear time. As the pixels have been separated in order to make a line out of the dot, they can be differentiated from each other and so you have space as well.

Everything appearing on an electric media – whether looking real or imaginary – is basically a construction of square pixels, that are able to simulate any world, when coded the right way.

The extended line is not straight but formed like a spiral, so from any pixel it looks like there is an unknown future behind the next curve and a forgotten past behind the last curve. You imagine, what you cannot see, and based on this imagination, you conclude where you are ´now´.

This is just a metaphor, that you can read due to the pixels, that these letters are made from. The metaphor though cannot tell you what the dot is, it can only point towards it. Least of all can it explain, what the world is, because it is not possible to extend that which is one into a world where there seems to be more than one. It is, however, possible to imagine this.

Just like a metaphor is a construction of thoughts, so is a world where there seems to be more than one. But no construction of thoughts has the power to change that which is you, namely the formlessness of that which is one, unless you choose to believe so.

Only you know why you have a need to imagine, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. If you have forgotten why, you better find out, because knowing why you believe a world, where there seems to be more than one, is real, you can undo the belief, so that it does not appear to hide the reality of that which is one.
