A human being is a part of a whole, called by us the 'universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.1
Key Principle of Life, for Life No. 2a:
All times exist at-once
in the unlimited fullness of 'now.'
As the late physicist John Wheeler sought to reveal, "human consciousness shapes not only the present but the past as well."2
The universe is newly forming, at all times.
Our usual serial, sequential experience of time is a consequence of limited perceptions and focus. What may come to exist, or may have existed cannot be entirely disconnected from, or independent of our present circumstances.
Our moment-to-moment experience of time is supported by, and embedded in a deeper, nonlocal (at-once) interconnected 'ground' that everywhere and everywhen interconnects.
For some future or past event to be entirely disconnected from, independent of, or unrelated to our present circumstances would require an absolute separation that was not able to be bridged, engaged or journeyed – we would have no consequential or sequential experience of time and events, no individuality and no individual awareness.
