elitsour For there is nothing but our own reflection in the mirror of time 4w
  •   elitsour @nojust1me Hey :) ...Time is an illusion, a mere reflection of our true infinite existence. A veil creating the illusion of separation from our maker. We are only One consciousness while each one of us is but a tiny reflection of God experiencing itself in infinite ways through the veil of time. Therefore, when understanding the entire universe is expressing itself within yourself and that time is a only a mirrored existence, you may deduce that: "For there is nothing but our own reflection in the mirror of time". 3w
  •   nojust1me I suppose I'd have to respectfully disagree. Time is an objective feature of reality that is completely independent of our conscious awareness. Also, time does not separate us from our Maker, especially seeing how God interacts within time itself. Also, we cannot merely be one consciousness because each one of us individually have separate conscious experiences that are exclusively our own and cannot possibly be shared by anyone else. This is know as private access within the field of the philosophy of mind. Also, God is not the universe seeing how the cause of the universe must have transcended all of space, time reality and nature. Hence the term, super natural, which literally means beyond all nature. So it's incoherent to equivocate the universe with God. 3w
  •   elitsour @nojust1me Well my friend, it had indeed been discussed for millennials by philosophers. The opinions were even segmented into groups as presentism and eternalism. Though If you were to refer to Plato, Spinoza or even MacTaggart and more, their answers on the "what is time?" question was in a way or another that time does not exists, so the argument is natural and will probably be perpetuated. As for the separation; I didn't said time is separating us from our maker, I said time is "creating The Illusion of separation"...an illusion throughout which God is experiencing itself in subjective ways. This is the exact same thing you said by "God interacts within time itself". Our "individuality and separate conscious experiences" as you say, are exactly the "infinite objective ways" I'm talking about although we disagree on the Oneness of all. Than again you misinterpret me when mentioning I equivocated the universe with God so allow me to clarify myself. The God is the Whole, the Oneness, it is the universe and it's cause, it's laws and beyond and in each and every creation materialized on the veil of time, the essence of the God is reflected into existence. I hope you find the path to unity above and below 3w
  •   nojust1me Very nice and I see. thank you for the clarification. However I still respectfully disagree. Time can't, not exist. Whether there was agreement among philosophers or not there is still a clear objective truth that is independent of consensus. So time must exist necessarily seeing there will always be a "before and after". This is simply inescapable. And even by your own dichotomy, time would still exist. Also, God is omniscient and would therefore make it a logical impossibility for Him to experience illusions. So God interacting in time is by no means a reference to an illusions unless you have the false presupposition that time does not exist. But as I mentioned earlier, this is simply inescapable and I dare say, self defeating. After all, you believe that time is an illusion right now. That is, the belief itself lay with a time frame. At best you could adhere to the B theory of time (which is what I think you're actually getting at here) and say that temporal becoming is an illusion, but that is not at all the same as saying that time is illusory in the sense that it does not exist at all. Also, God cannot be the universe AND it's cause seeing how He must be the ontological foundation for anything else to exist which would make Him logically (though not necessarily temporally) prior to the universe. Hence the two cannot be "one" in the same anymore than my child is not me, even if she is a reflection of me in the metaphoric sense. Also, God cannot be material if He is the cause of material existence. All these notions entail logical fallacies and self contradictions. Therefore there cannot even be, in principle, a "unity" or "oneness" to existence itself. Especially when we understand the difference between things that exist necessarily and things that exist contingently. I can however offer an olive branch in that God is none the less the cause and sustainer of any and everything else that exist external to Himself. 3w
  •   elitsour @nojust1me our entire debate is based on the question of time and as you mentioned so well, our presuppositions are the one shaping our subjective view on the subject while both approaches are legitimate. When saying time is an illusion, I don't argue with our physical experience of time you call an objective truth but with the presupposition of it being our real existence. It is, as I've tried to express in my initial caption, only a mirror, a veil, an illusionary plain created to "hold in place" the materialization of objects. Also, I must say I find it very intriguing the way you confront God with human logic repetitively by using terms as "would make him logically prior to the universe", "logical fallacies and self contradiction" or even comparing the human procreation metaphoric reflection with God's begetting process in his image....As a Christian apologist I thought you'd be the first to agree God's existence Can't be quantify into human logic..(and my statement says Time is one of the barriers preventing us from transcending this comprehension) 3w
  •   nojust1me I appreciate the kind words. And yes we come from quite different starting points. For example I don't find that time has anything to do with "our real existence" as it stands unrelated to time in an ontological way. Neither do I find that time has anything to do with "holding" anything together, much less anything material. Time is not a material property. And as a Christian apologist I would never say that. Here is why: to say that human logic cannot give us any truths about God is to assert a truth about God using human logic. Thus any "apologist" making that claim would be defeating his own view. Further, there isn't a difference among logic. It just is and there is only good logic or flawed logic. Thus, "human logic" is simply not a thing. Something is either true or false. Now, there can surely be different comprehension a of logic. But logic in and of itself stands and we humans can understand it. To say other wise is to logically say that we cannot understand logic. So we mustn't construe our logic to be "human logic" as if that somehow is a lesser form of logic. There is simply no such thing. That beings said, God Himself is the grounds for logic and logic is the very thing that will always point to truth and truth will always bring you to God. That is why I am an apologist :) I've very much enjoyed our conversation. 3w

  •   seas0nsinthesun You're right 2mon
  •   7baladeva7 Yup! 2mon
  •   carloschinesta It is easy to say that, but in reality, we are not the same, and why? Because everyone has a different perception about life, different parameters. And I'm talking about soul and something beyond the human body and brain thinking. Of course in this way, even tho the souls are different. Ok, now all this theory breaks down when I say, if we take away all those parameter that we have been SUCKING from society, culture, propaganda and bullshit, well, then we are the same . But think about something, we always we have been the same from the beginning but not everyone accept this, and this is the main parameter that we should eradicate from our minds. Maybe... Maybe in 1000 million years, humanity accept the most basic thing ever. That we are the same but we are unique at the same time. And if all of us we had the proper self-esteem to accept ourselves, everything would be different. But we are primitives, based in basic, sexual and EGOCENTRIC behaves all over. 2mon
  •   elitsour @carloschinesta Thanks for your words Carlos. We are one soul experiencing itself in infinite ways. The separation is but an illusion :) we are all the same one but as you mentioned, society is perpetuating the illusion 2mon
