I run towards a stationary man. I can measure the distance, my velocity and the time it takes for me to get to him. Conversely, the stationary man too, from his point of view percieves exactly the same time, velocity and passage of time as I do. We move in exactly the same space time in relations to each other. However that man is not stationary because the earth is revolving relative to both of us. The earth is also moving relative to the sun and therefore the sun and the earth have the same perception of each other.
I move only if I can imagine my movement against something that is either percieved to be stationery or which moves slower than myself. Or so I imagine. Distance can only be measured against another object. The Earth moves relative to the sun, our galaxy expands (or so I am told) relative to other Galaxies, but in the finality in an infinite Universe I come to a block, for there is no context that I can measure distance/velocity against. How can any distance be measured against something that is infinite ?
Similarily for time. I can imagine time only in relation to something else. Ageing against someone that is young, the hour of the day against the movement of a clock, or the movement of the sun against the Earth. And I can go on creating the realitiy of linear time, but only as long as I can find something that has a relative difference.
And then again in the finality of it I come against the infinite Universe that is Timeless !
So if I am running towards something that is infinite, from the point of view of that which is infinite, I am not covering any distance, have no velocity and there is no linear time being expended between me and that which is infinite. We have no
The only logical conclusion I can come to then, in it’s finality, is that there is no distance, no velocity and no time.
Its a riddle.
