Time and Event

ravi swami : Yes…moment and continuity are contradictions in terms – an ‘event ‘assumes a “before event and after event” situation – what you are saying is that every “event” exists and is not marked by a start and end point, if it did then “time” as concept has to exist –


as in editing a film, an in point and out point, but outside of the “edit”, events and actuality(for want of a better word), continue, despite the film makers division of the continuum to make logical sense and tell a story….
Maybe our concept of time is just a method for rationalising things and making it have a point or giving it a meaning… a perspective.
I sometimes ponder on the idea of dividing time into ever smaller divisions – like you see in “time slice” films – at a certain point time appears to stands still – on a theoretical level this is what is supposed to occur for a viewer if he/she/it approaches the speed of light, time “stands still” and all “events” become simultaneous…
