Are psychics predicting the future or seeing what’s there now? If some of what’s there now exists in a parallel universe, can they mistake those events for our own? Do psychic abilities manifest in thought? What about in the creative flow of imaginative authors?
I, for one, have made fake predictions in a humor piece for UFO Magazine and written details of a fictional immediate future in my novel, Into The End, all of which came to pass. I thought they were complete flights of fancy when I wrote them. And they were. And yet here they are.
We’re so taken aback by how works of fiction often predict the future. Why? Because we think linearly and so consider the ability to get ahead of ourselves an anomaly. But if we switch perspectives on time to the nonlinear timeless now in which all time, and therefore all events both possible and eventual, exists, we’ll see right quick that our sense of past, present, and future is a matter of editing.
Timelessness transcends and includes time and we are both. It only makes sense that events we eventually become unblinded to as future discoveries could become immediately unblinded to by people who are open to a sense of timelessness when in creative mode. I say a sense of timelessness because accessing in creative mode is not the same as being timelessness. Formulating an imaginative story is more like standing on the deck of a ship, scanning the distance through a telescope, looking for one’s destination. We may be sailing to an inevitable place, but we have to find it first. In looking, we see much of our surroundings, and we may fall in love with another idea, another place we see, and figure out a way to navigate there instead. Because this is all in imagination, we tend to assume that the destinations are all made up, but not all are. The terrain consists of possibilities, some of which will be actualities in the real world. And sometimes we accidentally sail into those actualities in their larval form, as ideas, before they become events in time.
Time is timelessness playing out. Time is timelessness in action. Time is measurement. We’ve noted this all up and down the website, right? What I’m about to write next is a much sneakier fact. Check this out….
There has to be a beginning and ending of time for time to exist, otherwise we’d have just timelessness. Therefore, just as the beginning is written, so, too, is the ending and everything in between… which is timelessness.
If that looks convoluted, read it again. What’s that really saying? It’s saying that from within time, there is an action of unfolding. This unfolding takes shape much like a story, with a beginning, middle, and ending. It feels revealing to us because we’re characters in the story, but because this story is a preexisting condition, it is already completely written right now. And actually, from that broader perspective, we would not say the story is completely written, we would say it is perpetually writing. Put another way, the story may unfold past to future within itself, but the book is living. The very letters themselves are living in the active present. One simultaneously lives/dies in time and is living perpetually, timelessly.
Timelessness, you see, is now-ing. And now-ing contains a sense of unfolding, of revealing. Your life is one of revealing moment to moment. What a revelation you are!
The action of time is the action of lighting up certain possibilities contained in the timeless moment by becoming aware of them. This is not to say that each choice you make eliminates the unchosen possibilities from becoming actual. It means you won’t experience them through the mind of time. Of course ours is the mind of time. We can’t step into timelessness as we are. We can only experience it in intervals, again, as if putting a telescope to our eye.
Time, via the self, can shine a spotlight on timelessness. But in transcending and including the self, all of timelessness may shine through time. For the self to be timelessness, then, the self must die. Die while the body is alive and be resurrected as a conduit of timelessness. This is how the alive become living. It’s where the story of you and I ends.
And where one live always.
