Homo fuge! Whither should I fly?
If unto God, he'll throw me down to hell.
Dr Faustus, Christopher Marlowe
Some days drag, others speed by; the days are long, the years are short. I experienced a bizarre memory glitch with my partner last night when we both swore that Trump had been inaugurated in January and had done all he had done in two short months. We had to check that's how weirded out we were. Before you think I am about to evoke the Mandela Effect this was clearly our memories making a mistake but the ultimate cause of that mistake is the way time speeds up, slows down and so on throughout the year. We know that our personal moods are a factor, when things are exciting and we are busy time moves more rapidly and vice versa and these moods aggregate so that when the times are exciting and busy we as a society feel that things are moving more quickly or more slowly and this change in tempo can be disorientating - what year is this? This is the subjective side of the experience of being ''in time''.
But if, as Raziel suggests, the future preexists and contains so-called robust branching moments that are like vortices and act as vertices between surviving realisable timelines then as we approach these vortices not only will we expect synchronicities to increase but also that time will speed up as we are dragged into the spiral. Is the increasing frequency of synchronicity married to an acceleration of the perceived flow of time? If so can we say there is a more objective component to the way seemingly time changes speed - a gradient or topology in the fourth dimension - not from mass alone but perhaps in our minds interaction with that mass? Raziel has already indicated that matter is time and consciousness is anti-time.
According to Raziel as we enter these branching moments we do have a decision to switch between timelines, a decision we do not have as we travel along a regular path where our momentary decisions aggregate to the same end. Throughout these thought experiments on time travel we have explored a number of possible phenomena that we can use to both identify that we are approaching one of these moments and to determine the type of moment it is:
- the way synchronicities increase/decrease as you approach/leave a robust branching moment, so you can pay attention to this as one factor - this implies that the ''soul'' is most aligned with ''reality'' at the branching moment itself, a point of maximum synchronicity if you like, the eye of the storm might reveal a dead calm for that moment (?)
- the way time speeds up/slows down as we approach/recede a branching moment, is there then a ''stillness in time'' at the branching moment itself, the moment of maximum synchronicity?
- the ways we can characterise synchronicities through archetypal people and archetypal situations, in your life there are various significant people you will encounter that have a distinct look (physiognomy) to them and that you can encounter them again in similar looking people when similar branching moments occur, this leads to the idea that actually the similar looking different individuals you are encountering are in fact one ''entity'' in superposition throughout your timeline(s) and that their physiognomy indicates the type of branching moment that is being opened
Making observations like this leads to some kind of fourth dimensional awareness which is deeply tied to personal narrative and character but ultimately to an ability to navigate that time - crossing between the lines of the ''Fourteen Minotaurs'' or the ''Seven Kingships'' and transpositions of the Sefer Yetzirah, moving between health and sickness, wealth and poverty, etc.
If time flies, then we must earn our wings and learn to fly.
My senses are deceived, here is nothing writ:
Oh yes I see it plain, even here is writ
Homo, fuge! Yet shall not Faustus fly.
