Yep. Time is relative. Even more so, it’s a human invented measurement. The distinction of past, present, and future is an illusion, a fiction of our mind like gods, months and weeks, nations, corporations, and monetary value. There is only this moment, and the perception of past, the experience of present, and the imagination of future is all experienced “at all times” in this now.

Time Is But a Stubborn Illusion
Watch an exclusive sneak peek from the first episode of Genius, starring Geoffrey Rush as the older Einstein and Johnny Flynn as the younger.
“Everything that has happened, is happening, and will happen is happening now. Most of us have difficulty seeing this, for we are way too invested in our perception of the three being separate… Physics demonstrates that life (reality) responds to our observing it, not to our thoughts about it. It is pseudoscience (religion guised as science) that trys to make it about our mind… Life is not about you or I, it’s about we – as a species. Sadly, too many of us fail to see this because of our human-made subjective fictions about life. And this leads too many of us towards a life of suffering and seeking salvation from this suffering. Life is about we, the species. In this is our purpose for being, and this includes the human species. Individually, our brief presence in life is the successful continuation of the human primate species upon this earth. With all our wildly imaginative fictions that we have about it.” – Joseph T Farkasdi
“Conscious life began with an observation. An act of observing, which led to an act of thinking about what is being observed. This relationship between observing and thinking is what drove our species towards creating a fictive language. A cognitive-based language reality that we often mistake as more real than the self-evident reality itself. This act of ‘thinking’ leads all thinking-creatures to an incessant need to be doing, beyond the basic genetic needs for survival, and this is especially the case with our human primate species. Like each cell is an important, though brief, part of the entire body of a nefesh chayah, a “living breathing-creature”, so are we individually – in body, mind, and consciousness – a briefly existing, but necessary, part of the ever-changing body of the human species. A species that is ever-growing more aware of itself consciously.” – Joseph T Farkasdi
“An obsession with “purity” is the heart and soul of every single theistic-based religion that human Sapiens have developed throughout human history. This obsession with purity creates caste/class systems, most notably with the “priests” and “elites” in the top class and with the “untouchable” destitute or “poor” class at the bottom. Even the most ideal of “democratic”-based nations continue to move towards this separatist system of the “have” and “have not”, of the “us” and “them”, so long as religion is allowed to have an affectual place in the civil affairs of humans. It doesn’t matter what religion it is – whether theistic, nationalistic, or philosophical – for such human-made ideology to be believed in as an “absolute” or a fundamental reality “truth”, then there has to be those at the bottom who suffer as human beings – all to justify the authority and teachings of those at the top.” – Joseph T Farkasdi
“Sadly, a person and a nation that chooses divine rule over elevating our common good, from the mis-belief that we are inherently bad and given to “sin”, is a person or a nation that has no liberty. Liberty is what the Founders of this nation fought for – a “People’s democracy” that separates church from state. Sadly, if we, the United States of America, are to remain a free nation and not return to the religious/monarchical rule of Europe’s past, then we must address the take-over of government by the minority evangelical religious-nationalist extreme-right in this nation’s government.” – Joseph T Farkasdi
