The Dilemmatic Problem

 

It simply doesn’t make sense if one should say that those genius scientists of the century are unaware of the errors concerning “time.”  It is also unlikely that they have all this time been ignoring the issue. There have been quite a lot of articles that have tried to expose these errors, but all these have ultimately found it difficult to make their way up to the surface. It seems that there is something behind the whole thing that has caused them to be in a dilemma.

This could be either that the writer refrains from continuing his efforts, because by now he is being debarred by what he takes to be his faith, or that the readers themselves have kept resisting the mass publication of such articles, as they are felt to be offensive to their beliefs. Indeed, for as long as these scientists ignore the very fact that man has been destined to have memory in all their explanations about the errors in the concept of time, whatever claim they have concerning this misconception will naturally be seen by many as being contradictory. To lay the blame on only the concept of time will possibly bring about some undesirable impacts on “time” as it is currently used in our daily life, in the various scientific literatures, and in the different Holy Books.

Under no circumstance, therefore, must we misinterpret this as an attempt to change time. All we are doing here is to add new meanings to time so that all those anomalies discussed above can be understood. The exposure of the misconception of time does not at all contradict the various scientific explanations and whatever is written in the Holy Books concerning “time” for as long as you are aware your very being as man destined to have memory.

Remember the case when we first began to realize the fact that it is the earth that revolves around the sun, not the reverse? So accustomed are we to the erroneous view that we had once held that it continues to survive. While on the one hand we acknowledge that the earth rotates on its own axis and revolves around the sun, on the other hand, we have till today kept saying that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Does this not imply that it is the sun that revolves around the earth from the east to the west? Admittedly, however, despite this syntactical error, we have yet the correct sense of the phenomenon. 

We could, of course, do the same thing here too: While we keep talking about things in terms of “the past time,” “the present time,” and “the future time,”  we may as well  direct our thoughts to their “past condition,” present condition,” and “future condition.”

Obviously a similar case will recur here, but with our knowledge of these deficiencies concerning “time,” we could at least prevent ourselves from being led too far astray from the reality. More than that, you shall lose sight of “condition” as a whole, only because you are so overwhelmed by “time.”

A general exposition of the various misconceptions of time such as this seems to be a must, as this will enable us to enhance our competence in coping with the various consequences posed by differences in opinions, ideologies, and religions. Besides, by being aware of these mistakes of ours we would likely be geared towards a more realistic, critical, universal and holistic realm of thought. Such an awareness, it is expected, would bring about a positive impact in that it could result in the achievement of a “common perspective” as concerns our selves and this universe. By having an in-depth knowledge of our selves and others, we shall find it easier to develop mutual understanding. An added impact could be that peace on the earth and unity among humankind would be further assured.

It is thus obvious that all those misconceptions of time as exposed in this book do not in any sense contradict the various scientific explanations and whatever is cited in the different Holy Books concerning “time” for as long as you are aware your very being as man destined to have memory.

If in this book the writer seems to confine his discussions of Memory as he views it from a negative standpoint, in his forthcoming book, The Omniscience of Memory, he attempts to view it from a positive standpoint.

What’s more, from all the things he discovered about Memory, the writer has also been able to see an opportunity that may be very beneficial for the establishment of “peace.” Let’s find out what the benefits are that we can obtain through the exposition of the issue of “time” in the forthcoming book entitled:

“Paradigm for Peace.” www.paradigmforpeace.com

 

Note:

By the time he was close to finishing the article “The Deceptive Nature of Memory,” it came to the writer’s notice that many scientists have today also had the feeling that the concept of time is anomalous. However, because the whole subject of discussion in this article is purely his own brainchild and not at all a result of data collection, he therefore makes no attempt to equip it with any bibliography.
