If you have no perception of time, does infinity pass within the blinking of an eye?
Ever talked to the dead?
Getting them to talk back however, is an entirely different matter. Maybe it’s a Star-trek non-intervention thing, free will an all that, or maybe its our own inability to tune in. Either way I think people should be mature enough to discuss the possibility without being labeled ‘Bible Basher’, ‘Nutter’ or ‘Weirdo’.
I think anybody who says they can’t accept the possibility of the existence of a soul or even contemplated it has to be lying. I suspect even the most hardened atheists would prefer that there is an afterlife, I think atheists are so tremendously pissed at the dogma’s that saturate all religions as am I myself, that the only logical remainder having based their lives on ethics is to become an atheist. Though I’m not an atheist myself, I would rather be labeled a theist, with a belief system based on the information I have gathered and researched myself and the experiences I’ve had. Better that than the alternative, a dogmatic bigot.
Having said that, looking into my childrens eyes and feeling the torrent of emotion and love, I couldn’t help wondering, why all the suffering, all the war, all the famine.
Then my brain spluttered and farted and spat this out:
Maybe time was created to slow us down, so that we could appreciate all life has to offer, maybe without time there is no empathy, I mean if there was no time, you’d have no time to give a shit right?
So maybe in this place of eternal joy and happiness having no perception of time my life passes in the blinking of an eye. I die and turn up at the gates of Heaven to be greeted with:
God – “you back already? did you have a nice trip?”
Me – ” well no actually, I had a terrible time, there I was floating around in this nice warm cocoon, an some nugget from a place called planned parenthood shredded me with some sort of egg wisk, so I didn’t really see that much”
God – “well theres no point complaining, you had just as long as everybody else!”
