What I am saying here is that you and I are nothing compared to time.
It says in the Bible that “There is no
difference in the Lord’s sight between one day and a thousand years; to
Him the two are the same.”
(2 Peter 3:8)
This must make it difficult to have an appointment with God. Imagine God saying to Moses to go to Mount Sinai “tomorrow”; and Moses asking, “Is that tomorrow in 24 hours or in a thousand years time? Because I’d be dead by then!”
So what is time? Anything that happened yesterday, or before yesterday is in the past. Anything that will happen tomorrow and after tomorrow is in the future. You must never worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow has already happened in Australia.
What is happening today is in the present.
But let us look at the present under a microscope. We find it is divided into twenty-four hours.
Let's get a better microscope. We find every hour is divided into sixty minutes.
An even better microscope will show us that right now, this very split second, 1 millionth of a second, that is precisely the present. And as that one millionth of a second has passed you are already in the new present and the last one millionth of a second is now in the past.
Get it? If you split time to the tiniest millionth of a millionth of a second you will discover that you are always moving in time because every tiniest microest bit of a second is already in the past before you even think about it.
That's time travel. You are already, and constantly, travelling in time. Time travel!
Time travel can be fast, as I described, or can be very slow. Especially if the train I am on stops at every station and is late leaving its destination anyway. My commuter train is frequently 15 minutes late. I wrote to the railway company suggesting they change all the times in the time-tables by 15 minutes and the trains will run on time. They have not replied because my letter was sent by snail mail which is slower than the train.
I once found a snail on my doorstep. To save him from being trodden on I picked him up and threw him in the bushes nearby. A week later he was on my doorstep again. He said, "What's the big idea throwing me in the bushes?"
When I was young I had difficulty controlling time. I was always late to school because I had to feed the cactus. When I grew up I sold the cactus and have no problem with time.
Scientists believe you can travel fast back in time to years already gone by. Or indeed travel fast to the future. If you travel fast into the past you can meet famous people who lived many years ago.
I tried that once by visiting a medium. Well, she was very large really, but she preferred to call herself a medium. So I humoured her. She was also a clairvoyant. She could see into the future. Unfortunately our first appointment was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. She could also communicate with animals that had passed away to the other side. She spoke to a parrot once but he kept repeating on her. She tried talking to a goldfish which had drowned because it could not swim. But that's a different kettle of fish; a red herring really.
Anyway, I asked her to use her "medium" talking to people from the past skills to invite certain people to my birthday party. I wanted to invite Shakespeare, Henry the Eighth, Marco Polo and Cleopatra. That way I'd be the only one not in fancy dress.
Unfortunately not one of them turned up. Not one sent me a birthday card even. And they say elephants never forget. Don't believe it. I never received a birthday card from an elephant either.
So in essence, time travel does exist. It happens right now and all the time. Every tiny split bit of a second of your time is immediately into the past, and you are always travelling fast into the future.
Use your time wisely.
