Remember, there’s more ways to connect time than line and dots and even movie frames. Einstein analogized to the high tech of his day and it’s such a powerful analogy that it’s held up for 100+ years.
Yet, there’s other views of Time. Facets of time. The experience of Time. Retroactive time. Introspective time. Just today, someone named #LiquidZero took a bunch of my Vines that I’d recently uploaded to the Internet Archive and made a video collage.
How is Time represented here? The current experience of it seems linear (this movie has frames) – but sets of these frames came from other “parts of Time”, making it non-linear.
What dimensional view is it? Is it squiggly lines connecting points in time? It could be seen that way. Yet the experience of it is different for each person who sees something like this. For each the connections are unique, reaching back into their own memories, anticipations of the future…
It has special significance to me because it’s someone “not me” viewing a facet of the public me that reached out from within the private me and is a mirror reflecting back through time and to self and while it _could_ be graphed on a 2D piece of paper, or simplified to a formula … the essence of some things can be simplified out of existence. if you’ve simplified something out of existence, then you’ve gone too far imo.
