No two moments are the same… and when those moments are years apart… the change is very obvious.

Using these comments as a comparison, I would like to explore the idea of discrete time vs. continuous time with you. Can you see how I would get the idea when looking at moments like these that time is discrete?

• vinaire  On July 1, 2012 at 8:38 PM

In my opinion, time is neither discrete nor continuous, but one can make it discrete, or one can make it continuous.

What would you prefer?

So you write today. Previously you wrote that there is no evidence for its discreteness. You play word games with me without sincerity.

A year is discrete, a month is discrete, a day is discrete, an hour is discrete, a minute is discrete, a second is discrete, a Planck constant is discrete, just like any place value in a number is discrete.

Yet it only appears to be so.

How small, or large, can a place value in a number be?

What I write and what you ‘grasp’ are two very different things.

In what way?

• vinaire  On July 3, 2012 at 7:40 AM

I have always been consistent with myself.

• Chris Thompson  On July 3, 2012 at 8:23 AM

. . . Of course we are all always consistent with ourselves until such a time as we notice we are being inconsistent. Now once we notice any inconsistency about ourselves, then it is my opinion that meditations such as your KHTK can be useful.

• vinaire  On July 3, 2012 at 8:41 AM

That is correct. When one finds an inconsistency, one uses a procedure similar to the scientic method to resolve it. That is what I understand from the Buddhist reference to “mindfulness”. Here one is looking non-judgmentally and applying the scientific method to one’s perception of things.

Those were VERY adventurous days for a provincial boy from India.

I weighed 112 lbs.

That’s the mast of Apollo in the first picture. The second picture was at one of the island stops.

. . . especially this!

• vinaire  On July 3, 2012 at 7:44 AM

Yes, this overrides everything. Please go by your own sense of consistency. My next KHTK issue will cover this in more detail.

About that expansion of Scientology in India, I only wanted to put Study Tech there. They used me for all that PR!

So, the only mission that ever survived in India was the one that I started with Study Tech as the spear head. None of their other effort came to any fruition.

But this Patiala mission was also taken over by the Miscavige regime and made into a religious center. I believe that killed it.
