The Silent Treatment
One of the things that has risen out of electronic voiceless communication is the rampant rise of The Silent Treatment. That’s when I ask you out by e-mail, texting, twitter, etc. and get the dead stoney silent treatment. You should be required to at the least give one of the old lame excuses like “I have to wash my hair. ” But when you think about it, it requires a lot less committment emotionally to do anything like asking a girl out. Getting on the phone with shaking hands to ask a girl out who you like so much she intimidates you takes a lot of emotional investment. I hate to think what it took when you had to stand toe to toe. But e-mailing or texting takes little because you can’t be seen or heard. I can really chew some ass by e-mail. I wonder how much I would be willing to chew face to face? I sent a friend an e-mail many months explaining why I couldn’t be his friend anymore. He brought it to my attention saying if I was going to do this it should be done face to face because I could have at least seen the hurt in his eyes. He was probably right. I wonder if what I said would have changedd, or maybe we would have worked it out. And don’t you think if the U. S. is going to bomb Syria, for example, that Obama ought to tell them personally. Maybe we need more gloves slapped acrosss the face and duels with honor. personally feel, for example Congress is going to cut your benefits they should have to face at least ten blind, paraphlegic, or legless veterans in person that were getting the ax. The problem is we live in an impersonal electronic age where we are losing the art of face to face communication. I can’t believe that it doesn’t make a difference in our personal mental health
I have been somewhat obscessed the last year with the phenomonon of time. My opinion is that time does not exist. If you think about the universe that supposedly started with the Big Bang. Assuming that this explosion, or disruption or whatever word is adequate to describe it began thee process of moving matter through the universe. So, if this happened in equal pressure from all points the shape of this should be spherical, assuming no gravitational influences. So, if there was a thing such as time, it would move x number of lightyears from the Big Bang up to this point…………………..
The space-time continuum can be perceived as being a canvas upon which the life of the universe is drawn. It is, therefore, without limits and without end, universal and eternal. Lets get philosophical for a moment.From our psychophysical bodies, we are beings evolving in this multidimensional universe, where space and time represent only one facet.
Our state of consciousness us…ually situates itself within these limitations. We identify ourselves as an entity traveling on this canvas unrelentingly without possibility of return. But, we can also access a higher state of awakening where the focal point of our conscience is no longer located in this continuum, but outside or even better, everywhere and always at the same time. We can then become aware of the fact that neither space nor time really exist.
A conscious being can, from the place that s/he is, know from where s/he came as well as where s/he is going. The place where s/he is, is only the result of the traversed space and the space yet to be traversed. It contains within itself all space. But, this non-dimensional point between two spaces is nothing other than a vacuum, an illusion; paradox and reality. Space has no real existence.
In the same way, if the future exists at the same time as the past, then a connected conscience can know both at the same time. If the present guarantees the future and is a consequence of the past, then the present contains within itself all eternity. But the present moment is only a temporal non-dimensional point; paradox and reality. Time has no real existence.
To leave this four-dimensional canvas, to find freedom, it is enough for us to perceive universality in a non-dimensional point and eternity in one timeless moment. The point and the moment, indeed, do not exist separately but contain within them the totality of the universe which, we know it, is made of an infinity of points and moments; paradox and reality.
How can we do this?
By contracting space and by slowing time, not by physical maneuvers, but quite simply by a movement of our conscience. Reducing space to a point and time to an instant in such a way that both are perceived not from the inside of this continuum, as we usually do, but from the outside, or better still everywhere and always at the same time.
There are in existence several modalities for reducing space-time which are simple and easily accessed which, for most people, appear inefficient.

- Oh, no, wrong again! So, then, are we real entities since so much of what we think of is the past. In fact all memory is of past events, at least we think so. Do we have memory of the future since past, present and future are one?
- Since we cannot really define consciousness, how can we know we exist? How can we know anything exists? Our personal historical memory is blank at the beginning and probably the ending in our consciousness so the percception of
“self”” really has no beginning and maybe no ending.
Time has been transformed, and we have changed; it has advanced and set us in motion; it has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration.
