rawi swami said : …..time is actually (as we understand the meaning of the word) better described as “moment” or continuity – not an evolution of anything but a constant…within that constant there are “events”…us, supernovas, all instances of “local time”….
I agree, ravi swami, but…..
….. if time is a constant and not an evolution, then we have reconsider our definition of the word ‘event’, for the word event assumes a moment that is not continous, but singular. But a singularity of an event assumes a past and future where that singularity never existed, right ? And if so then are we not, after having described Time as a constant, contradicting ourselves ? So every event too, in that case must also be’constant’. So it always existed, does exist and will always exist. And is therefore not an event at all, but also a constant.
