The Dimension of Time


The word “dimension” refers to “measured out” (see its derivation). Therefore, time is a dimension because it can be measured out. What we are measuring is the persistence of something against a background that offers no resistance against persistence. Thus, we can measure change at any level.

Time may be measured in terms of the duration of something against a background of no duration.

Such a duration shall, therefore, be relative. This is best explained in terms of inertia. The higher is the inertia, the more is the resistance to change, and the longer something is enduring. The lesser is the inertia, the less is the resistance to change, and the shorter something is enduring. By measuring relativity of inertia and endurance, we can measure the relativity of time for different objects and phenomena. Therefore, the black holes shall have a very high endurance in time against the background of light that has almost no endurance.

The ultimate background shall have no endurance against which even the endurance of light may be measured. The coming and going of objects and phenomena could then be observed against this background.. Vedas talk about the cycle of “Begin, Continue and End” for all object and phenomenon. Such cycles are observed from the background of awareness that itself has no endurance.

The true awareness is the awareness of the moment. This awareness continues forever with no endurance or persistence of any of those moments.

And that is how I see TIME.
