Not just.

Time is the 4th dimension of the 4-dimensional reality we exist in (x,y,z,T). This 4-dimensional continuum, or Spacetime as it's more commonly called, is a subset of a ≥10 dimensional universe, perhaps multiverse.

Some, including myself, are attracted to the hypothesis that there is a 2nd dimension of Time at (conceptually) right-angles to the first from where all events on "our" time dimension can be witnessed at once.

I'd say more if I had time - but I don't :smilin:


Erm..ok?

Do you see time as linear or circular, like a spiral?
They ways history repeats itself, not exactly but almost, makes me think it’s more spiral.

For us stuck in the 4 dimensions of Spacetime time is linear (or at least that's how we experience it). For a hypothetical being who exists in a 5-dimensional environment (one with a second dimension of Time) things might well be (or seem to be) completely different.

I can't imagine beyond 5 dimensions, so god only knows what Time might actually be in ≥10 dimensional universe or multiverse.

As to history repeating itself, let's look at the Infinite Monkey Theorem.

The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare. (Wiki)

Therefore, a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare less one word.

And therefore, a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare less two words.

And so on, ad infinitum.

An illustration of history repeating itself - but not quite. :smilin:

I’ve decided time is a roller coaster. I don’t get that fourth fifth dimension stuff.

Explain that analogy further please.

We produce enough food to feed 9 times the Global population. markets don't reflect the Human need, only the corporate Arable input is measured. for bread We use strong flower, that means it is harvested before the molasses is introduced into the grain. later harvests are purely Arable feed.

We could easily feed twenty planet earths but our economic system fails us.
Capitalism hates an abundance because it cannot function in those conditions.


Don't know about the x20, but it is true that food distribution/access is not equal around the planet.


current food production wouldn't need the entire continent of africa, probably not even a quarter it's land mass. in responce to rolly he is correct. in the sense businesses don't like full shelves. stock in stock out, little or no storage. Most potatoes are 9 months old before they even reach the store, laced with anti fungal and a plethora of other substances for preserving till the market price is right. there are many farmer across the Planet who destroy half of their produce in agreement with other farmers to get better prices. and that is mostly to do with out dated regulations in an out date monoagri business model.


I woudn't know about all that. I'm not a great fan of potatoes anyway. I have however harvested potatoes with my bare hands working for the local farmer when I was a kid from a ploughed furrow. These pototoes certainly tasted better than anything you can get nowadays in a supermarket and they kept pretty well in dark and dry conditions (a shed without any sunlight going in) for quite a while without needing any any preservatives or anti fungal treatment.

"it's no fair." Says the Child in Me. "I have Life, what could be Fairer than that?" Says the Adult. at this moment what what meaning Will You derive? as is put My key in the front door I thought to My Self what is the rush. when did You last Appreciate the Garden? the moment? We have Life within, that in it Self is incredible. We also get to share that Life with an abundance of habitats that support Us in Our Journey. so I think the question should Ask "what dose Life mean to You?"

Trying or learning something new.
I bought goji berries for the first time today, never had them before but decided to try something different.
Don’t know what they taste of yet, I’ll put them in my porridge tomorrow.
