How Do We Exist At The Same Time?

How Can You and I Exist At the Same Time?

 We have empirical proof that we exist at the same time. But using the word “time” makes it an interesting question. The definition of time doesn’t exist but what if I said that time doesn’t exist? That's crazy if time doesn’t exist, how can we exist? We live our life looking at clocks that show the time, and we do everything based on the time that clocks show. Time definitely exists, but we don’t know what time is. Time is the measured motion of the earth. Our clocks measure Earth's motion and call the numbers “time,” but the numbers represent the motion of Earth. Atomic clocks measure the frequency (motion) of cesium-133 atoms and call the frequency seconds. But how can we exist at the same time? 

The universe only has one present moment of motion, which explains why everyone and everything exists simultaneously. Our planet moves with the same motion as the universe, so we age, during the same amount of time as the universe. A clock is a tool that ticks at the exact rate as the earth spins and the motion of the earth is converted into numbers that show us the time. Time is the measured motion of one day and we measure the motion of everything using clocks. 

The Ten Laws of Time 

1. You Don’t need Time to have Motion

When you look at a clock, it's at your present moment. You may feel you don’t have time to go to the gym. Your heart keeps pumping blood, and you keep breathing. Time is a measurement of your beating heart. Motion is the action, and it keeps moving without using time. 

2. You need Motion to have Time

The universe has the power of motion that moves not only matter and energy but thoughts and dreams. This movement exists without being measured. You use a clock to measure motion and call the measurement time, but without motion, nothing exists.

3. You can see Motion, but you can’t See Time

This seems like a simple idea. You can see physical things like your hands, and when you move your hands, you see the motion, but not the time. You could measure how fast you move your hands using a clock and call it time. Time is a measurement of motion, but the measurement is not the motion. Motion is the action you are measuring.

4. You can Touch Objects, but you can’t Touch Time

Sure, you can touch physical things. You can touch your smartphone and see the display of time, but you can’t touch time. You can touch the number that displays the time, but the number is physical and time is nonphysical. 

5. You Measure Motion Using the Time on Clocks 

The measurement of motion isn’t the motion. Time and Motion are related because you can’t have time without motion (atoms and light are always moving). But we don’t always know what causes the motion. We measure the motion using tools that show the time. The standard time of one second is the rate of motion in a Cesium-133 atom. When the atomic clock counts 9,192,631,770 oscillations of the atom, it's one second. The speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s, and the distance of one meter is defined by how far light travels in 1/299 792 458 of a second. The speed of light measures the distance to faraway places using light-years. So you can see that time is a measurement of motion. It’s a circular system, showing how the motion of light measures distance and time. Time is a man-made motion measuring system based on clocks that tick 86,400 seconds each day.

6. Time doesn’t Make us Older

Time is a measurement of motion, and time is a measurement of our age but not the cause. Our chronological age measures how many trips we took around the Sun, so the motion of events ages us. We get older because of unseen things that affect us, such as physical and emotional stress, illness, and injury.

7. Time is Ruled by Gravity

We don’t know what causes gravity, but gravity causes motion. During the Big Bang event, energy entered the universe with kinetic motion. After the energy changed into matter, gravity became energy in motion. The motion in the cesium-133 atom happens because of the frequency of quarks and gluons using the strong nuclear force. We measure this frequency and call it time, but the problem with this method is that any force can change the frequency in atoms. A cesium atomic clock will change its timekeeping rate if the environmental gravity changes. This effect is verified experimentally and mathematically. The change to the clock’s time is called gravitational time dilation. But I have never heard someone claiming it happens when gravity slows down quantum fluctuations. Am I the first?

8. Time Dilation On Earth

Time is not a property of matter, but matter has a feature of time called its frequency rate, which is a type of motion. Since gravity causes time to slow down, we must be aware that the standard time on Earth of one second has time-dilation built into our second. The gravitational force on Earth keeps the frequency of a cesium atom at 9,192,631,770 oscillations per second. The clock will only be accurate if it remains in the same gravity. Experiments have proved that if an identical clock is placed at a higher elevation, it will tick faster than the reference clock at sea level. The GPS system proves that a satellite clock ticks 45 microseconds faster per day because of gravitational time dilation and 7 microseconds per day slower due to the force of acceleration. Therefore, time is accurate only if the force of gravity remains the same as on Earth. 

9. The Problem With Numbers

Numbers aren't real. If numbers keep increasing, at what point do the numbers stop? Never and always are types of infinity. Never is zero, and always is infinite. The problem with numbers is that they are only measurements of something, and a measurement of a thing isn’t the thing. The map isn’t the territory. 

10. Infinite Energy Source

Heat is energy, and temperature is the measurement of that energy which is the measurement of the motion of atoms. But measurements are not atoms. If you keep taking away all the heat and the energy from the universe, you have to take out all of the atoms, then what is left in the universe? Nothing. In mathematics, nothing is zero, but in reality, nothing doesn’t exist. Nothing is an abstract amount of something. If the universe disappears, will there be nothing? Where did the energy go? It must have gone to the other side of nothingness which is infinity. My answer is that infinity always exists outside of the universe, but the universe is finite. The universe came from infinity, and the universe returns to its infinite energy source.

I appreciate you during this moment of time as we move into the new energy of the universe.

I hope to publish my book about Time this week. Watch for my email of the publishing date and how to get a free copy of Your Relationship With Time.
