RE: Time?

I came up with a thought when you guys were discussing what "present" is. We as humans never experience the present, that tiny bit of time (if it even exist) that is NOW. Our bodies are exposed to it but our minds will never register it. This is because it takes time for the brain to be reached by the impressions around our bodies and it takes time for it to register it. So in a way we all live in the past, and all that we see, feel, hear etc. has already happened.

These types of topics are really exciting, there are no roght or wrong answers, only the plausible. We've just reached fields in fysics in school that scientists don't have any explanation for. For example, electrons behave like particles and waves at the same time depending on if they are being observed. It's like they know someone is observing and therefore behave in a different way, but how can something like an electron be aware of anything and change its behaviour?

"Like they know someone is observing". To be able to "see" them, we have to use something so we actually can (eg. light and eyes). I've not studied quantum physics much, but I've always found how that test is told to people pretty dumb.

Yes, of course, I should have been more clear: We don't actually watch the electrons. By observing I mean that their movement "behaviour" are being measured and studied. But that description is a very easy way (yes, dumbed down to a great deal) to break it down when explaining it.

RE: Time?

What I'd miss? Been livestreaming the past hour.

Infrequently active. Don't expect an immediate response. Best to contact me at a different locale. If I create a thread, expect me to be quite active.

Based of the discussions in this thread: Was it really an hour O.O

RE: Time?

It's past. Yes.
Oh wait... It's future now.

Decide. Future or past?

Confusion is 9999 right now. At least my mind was freshened before, thanks to the livestream I did.
