Non-time



                  Time does not really exist. It is an illusion perpetuated to keep ourselves in complete and utter ignorance and far away from an unexplainable and often harsh truth.
     Constrained by time, we find ourselves in an imaginary jail that prevents us from understanding the meaning of our very lives and that of the Universe. Constantly rushed to get somewhere or to do something, we discover an impenetrable veil that we dare not unravel. Imagine if man's clock stopped its infernal ticking. Would we all be in disarray? Yes, but we would also be free. We have been given complete freedom, yet we spend our lives creating illusive walls meant to safeguard our obtuse way of thinking. There is a price, however, as all of our hard work, time takes away. But if there is no time, then there is nothing to be lost, nothing to be taken away. 

  

     Only by freeing yourselves from this prison we call time will we be able to enjoy life and discover what is really important. Not only that, but by embracing eternity, the fear of loss also dissipates.
      Of course, it is easy to dismiss all of this simply because we have chosen to lull ourselves into a false sense of security. We have accepted an unfair society that restricts our very being. But by looking into our very core, it becomes quite clear what is real and what is contrived.
      This discussion, however, should not stop at a philosophical level. The concept of non-time could offer practical applications as well.
     Imagine having ships that can access warp-like speeds similar to the Starship Enterprise in Star Trek, or imagine dodging bullets like Neo in The Matrix. The possibilities are endless. 
    Ultimately, it is up to each and everyone of us whether we break free from the confines of this world or simply accept everything as is...
