We all have heard, read, thought and said about “Time” many times in our life. Time is a lovely word, a work of a genius who ever invented it or discovered it. Time is the one thing that makes or breaks anything in anybody’s life. When we were conceived, when we were born, when we get up, when we go to sleep, when we work, when we die, when you fall (or rise) in love, when you write your exam, when you buy a house, when you go back from work, when will I stop writing about this and so on.
Time is abstract, but as a concept is physical. The end of time is said to be metaphysical or the start of spirituality. The speed of light is considered the fastest possible by any physical matter. Time being a component to calculate speed. When anything attains the speed of light, science says, it will cease to be bound by time. However, contradictingly we say light travels from the Sun to the Earth in about 8 minutes. The stars we see other than the Sun are multiple times farther away from the Earth than the Sun. Normally, we call them to be light years away from the Earth. Here, distance is being referred using speed of light and relating it to our calendar year of 365 1/4 days. One light year means, light takes 365 1/4 days to reach from the source to a point of reference. Most stars are hundreds of light years away from the Earth.
... least 100 years. It took humans a long time to calculate the real speed of light. Different scientists tried many times over many years and most ... dramatic. The earth's speed in orbit is about 18 miles per second; he knew from Romer's work that light went at about ... are ways that could work providing we could go the speed of light. If we could travel back in time then there are many ...
The funny thing that people normally may not have thought about is that: When we see a star today and if it is 40 light years away, then the ray of light from the star that we are seeing right now originated years before we were even born!!! Have you ever thought about this? So we can see the past. The beauty of looking at the night sky is that, we are looking at so many stars together, when the light ray from each originated at different points of time (5 years, 10 years, 100 years, even a million years).
So, we can actually look at the state of different objects/stars from different points of time all at once as though they are all happening or being that way just now. So we look at the past and think it is the present. We all know that stars have a life span, it may be just few minutes, few hours, few days, few years, few thousand years or few million years. If one of the stars we saw last night had a life span of 5 thousand years and if it is located about 10 thousand light years away from the earth, then the star we saw yesterday, did not even exist yesterday.
The fun part is: We normally call a person lunatic if a person says they can see things that dont exist. But, when all of us see something that does not exist like the star, we dont call ourselves lunatic. In other words, it would be our “bad time” if we ever saw something like that and others cant see it.
The concept of time is money is killing the simple concept of enjoying the time we have to live. Time does not exist if there is no matter. If there is no matter there is no movement. If there is no movement then how can there be time. When no thoughts flow, there cannot be any conciousness about time. An idle mind is different from a thought less one. The lesser the distractions a person has, the more focus a person can get. The more focussed a person is the more successful a person can be. Distractions is a cluster of thoughts on various topics or subjects which are not important to pursue at that point of time. Focus is thought or thoughts on a single topic or subject. Does this not mean we are actually asking ourselves to reduce thoughts to be more successful. So if we can go to thought less there must be much more success. Just that we have not explored it. Sounds like we even touched meta physical here.
... the evolution of one star in our lifetime. A stars life lasts billions and billions of years. By studying stars of the same mass ... to escape a gravitational field, surpasses the speed of light. Nothing, not even light, can escape from a black hole. Super massive ... some black holes contain wormholes at the mouth. These space-time tunnels could be shortcuts to different places of the universe ...
May be this is why, in philosophy, people say, a person who has remained thoughtless has attained enlightenment. May be this is why, in philosophy, people say, an enlightened person becomes a star when they pass away. May be they were trying to say, we see the light even though the star is no more there.
