Our brains make sense of what is around us – well at least sometimes! – but the brain filter has to put things to us so we can act appropriately. If there were no arrow of time, we couldn’t function so our brain feeds us the information as if there were. We connect things from the “past” to what might happen in the “future, because our brain is part of the entropy around us. At some point we would have to say that things are the way they are because if they weren’t we could function as life forms, so of course what we observe is a system which is conducive to life and not the opposite. Or another way round, life develops when the universe works the way it does, but something else might develop , or nothing, if the universe worked another way.
Consider that this thought has been transformed into photons. They are at this very moment entering your brain through the portals of your eyes as you read the squiggles on your illuminated screen.
An idea, literally transformed into light, is transported and diffused it to other minds.
That is phenomenally magical. Absolutely brilliant!
If light can bear ideas and messages, what, then, might be the radiant message of the heavens? Why are we so enthralled with the starry host? Does it all contain a message or is it all just luminous happenstance?
There is no passage of time, it’s always right now, the present. However, there is the passage of change.
Did the “now”, the “present” exist before human beings experienced it?
