Is Time An Illusion? Are We Living A Series Of Nows?

By Jennifer Elizabeth Masters

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. Albert Einstein

I am not a cosmologist, mathematician or even an astrophysicist. Math was my least favorite subject in school, in fact I had an intense fear of numbers for years. My interest in time is purely fantasmagorical. If you are expecting formulas or mathematical proof, I don't have it. Nor can I prove that there is a higher power, except through my personal experience.


In my work on past lives and past-life regression, I see evidence of past lives in current life situations. Allergies, sensitivities, aches, and pains from torture or tragic deaths. Once the past life is cleared, the issues are eliminated. I see the evidence in my experience. I see past, present and future as a folding of the fabric of reality. Which brings me to the question of what is reality? We each create our own reality or universe with our thoughts. My reality and yours are different because our thoughts are completely different. 


Each of us is an observer in our reality. We experience our thoughts through continued relevance due to our experience of our reality. In
my reality, the sun, moon, earth and plants are all conscious. You might think of me as a flake, or a nutjob until you begin to experience what I have. Until we believe something is so, it isn't true for us.

Julian Barbour British physicist, author and a major proponent of timelessness has spurned the world of academia.  He simply states: 

"There is no such thing as time. Time is an illusion."


Einstein updated Isaac Newton's theory: he believed time was a river flowing. Einstein unified space-time into a 4-D entity but failed to challenge time as a measure of change. 

We are born, we grow, age and we die.  

As we evolve on our planet we have moved from a 3D world into a 5-D world. Most people are only able to witness and experience those things that have three dimensions: length, height, and width. Beings and things that exist beyond the third dimension we are unable to see. We can, however, see objects that are one and two-dimensional. Those who are already living in a 5-D reality are able to experience the spirit realm which resides in a different dimension. Remember we are body-mind and spirit (multi-dimensional beings).

The thought of time not existing is proven when a spaceship travels long distance. For those on the spaceship traveling past, present and future exist in the now. They are happening simultaneously in a folding of our Multiverse. We are multi-dimensional beings. Past, present and future are right now.


Einstein's theory of special relativity state the laws of physics are the same for all non-accelerating observers. He also stated that the speed of light in a vacuum was independent of the observers. Everything is relative. If you sit in a courtroom waiting for your case to be called, it feels like an eternity. Yet, a day at the beach passes in a moment. 

There are two parts to Einsteins's theory of relativity. The second is "The Special Theory of Relativity." Without Einstein's two-part theory our GPS and cell phones would not work. Satellites govern our GPS systems on our cell phones. Though the satellite is not moving at the speed of light, it is moving faster than we are on earth. I'll give you an example:

Twins are separated. One twin boards a rocket and flies into outer space. When the twin returns home she finds her sister has aged more than she. As we speed up, time slows down.

You have heard you must live in the present to enjoy life. The richer meaning behind that premise is that if you focus on the past, you miss what is happening now. What if Einstein, Steven Hawking, and Freyman are correct? There is no time. Time is but a mental construct to allow humans to exist and make sense of the now.


When you try to hold a moment in your hand, you cannot. Time is constantly slipping away. There is nothing to hold onto. If you can't sense something with your senses, does it really exist? The passage of what we think of as time is marked by clocks so that we humans have an easier time of life on this planet. But does it really exist if we can't see it, touch it, or sense it? We live in a series of NOWS. Present moment after present moment. Some nows are connected to other nows. Which line up as a series of records.

There are many things that I love about Einstein. He was a romantic, a child at heart who believed strongly in imagination. In fact, he felt that imagination was more important than intelligence. With the mind of a child, we see life with wonder, joy, and awe. Isn't that what we are here for?


Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. Albert Einstein



There is no time, like the present, because there is no time. If you live in the past, you miss out on the joy of living life to the fullest. I would rather live in a universe where I am the purveyor of my destiny, living on the edge of my seat in the present with excitement and joy in my heart and the thrill of the next moment of NOW!
