the sundial was the first instrument of calculating time.

dont forget people.

time is a earth bound construct.

not a universal one.

Don't fret, concern, blah blah blah about the words?   You don't understand that it's not about separating anything.  What I posted is not about as though separate greed fear.  It's not about differences - goes up, goes down, more greed, more fear.  Whatever it is, in your case, it only serves to generate more chatter and argument.

I saw a documentary on this Mayan prediction today, re: 21 December 2012.

This coincides with an astrological phenomenon that rarely occurs, an alignment of Earth with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, at the same time that the Earth's wobble on its axis ceases (as it does every 26K years).

The end of mankind, if that is the case, is not the end of the world, except to mankind.

There is also debate about what the prediction actually is.  Some say destruction of Earth, others say some kind of massive geological occurence, others say prediction of an asteroid, others say a mystical prediction of a time of great change.

We will see.  Could be nothing.  Could be interesting.

im not the only one the debates the existance of time.

I try to avoid saying what is or is not.  To say that something is to say that something else is not, and in a universe of unlimited possibilities I just prefer to leave things open ended.

Also this is only one plane of existence, and not all that I have seen involve time and space.  This is a world of apparent cause and effect.  Not all planes of existence are 3d. 

What I like to say about this place is that time is a canvas stretched across a framework of space, upon which God paints with the brushes and pigments of cause and effect.

There is no limit other than Buddhas imagination, which is unlimited.

sounds like you come from the 70's.....to much weed and too much imagination.

haha.

not all things are possible.

time travel aint real.

time is of the devil.

i question the "things" we have come up with.

we have created alot.

now dont get me wrong.

i believe in cyclic events.

perhaps the stars will align and the earth will stop rotating or whatever.

but it aint gonna happen est or something.

it could happen for us on the 20th or the 22nd depending on the time.

i forget which country time begins in.

time is like this.

if we lived on mars and the planet spun on its axis every 30 hours and rotated around the sun every 400 days the calander and time would be differant.

i dont know any other way to descibe this.

ok to me " god" is was and always will be.

no begining.

no end.

i liken god to reality.
