    The Mystery of Time
    The Mystery of TimeIt’s About Time I often think about time, it is a continual mystery to me. We cannot directly feel time with our senses, we can’t stop it, we can’t buy it, it can be a friend, it can be an enemy, perhaps it doesn’t exist outside our awareness....

    @Gert Scholtz, superb buzz. This is what I take from your buzz: "We are less creative when we are in a hurry. The cognitive processes in creativity involve exploration, experimenting with various views, and iterating start and finish." I cannot agree more with you. More haste less speed as they say. When I write a buzz, I take a bit more time to think, to explore and to experiment with ideas and thoughts. Thank you, Gert.

    Thanks for another brilliant buzz, Gert. You offer an excellent analysis and important insights about the concept of time. We know what we know about time. However, we don't know what we don't know. What do I mean? Some of the smartest scientists and theoretical physicists worldwide don't agree on the current "conventional wisdom" that defines time. Some believe time is not linear, but loops. Others believe in "time warps" in the form of "worm holes" and black holes.
    Then you have Einstein's analysis of the space-time continuum where space and time are one and the same. I find it interesting, for instance, that science has shown that the faster one travels through space, the more time slows down compared conventional time on Earth. This posits that one can time travel into the future on Earth the closer they travel to light speed, as the person in space will age more slowly as time moves more slowly compared to Earth. Thus, in returning to Earth the space traveler would end up in the future -- having aged much less compared to humans on Earth.
    Then there are those like the professor at the University of Connecticut in the USA who believes it's possible to travel back in time, based on experimentation at very small scales https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Mallett. In short, a fascinating topic.
    Again, I would remind everyone that we don't know what we don't know. Thanks for another awesome read, Gert!

    Time, time. There is no time. There is not time for this rhyme...

    I often marvel at the unidirectional nature of time, as it flows only forward. Why? Which inevitably moves me to consider the concept of the "present". That infinitely fine partition that separates the past from the future. By the time I type the period at the end of this sentence, it is all in the past.

    One need only to look to the stars to see the past. What we see is the light that left these distant bodies hundreds of years ago or more. If I were able to travel faster than the speed of light, I could arrive at my destination and look back to see the events of the past unfold during my present. According to Einstein's Theory of Relativity, time slows and mass increases as the speed of light is approached. However, to reach the speed of light would require an infinite amount of energy, so it appears to be a barrier that I am not likely to break.

    Perhaps someday advances in quantum mechanics will change all this, or at least help us understand it a little better. For now, I entertain myself pondering the why's of what you have so eloquently outlined in this terrific post. Nicely done, Gert.

    #29 Personally, they've never worked for me. Some people say Kava works. Studies have been done which state Kava doesn't. I never benefited from it. Maybe others would know? They do sell teas specifically for stress, a company named Yogi sells one. You can get it in the grocery store. It wouldn't hurt to try, maybe it would work for you. B vitamins are supposed to be really good for anxiety. You have to take B Complex with B12. I buy both and get sublingual drops. They sell sublingual B12 too. It takes time for a vitamin regime to begin to work if it's going to but that is well worth trying.

    #15 Hi @Renée 🐝 Cormier, sadly with GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) thoughts do control you in a strange way. That's one of the reasons I'm in therapy working on reprogramming my brain per se. Intrusive thoughts are unwanted thoughts that play over and over like a broken record in your mind no matter what thoughts you try to replace them with, they return instantly. I never realized how much my thoughts controlled me until I sought help. That is *one* of my issues and I actually thought for a very long time that I was weak and should be able to control my thoughts- I worked hard daily w/out success and just became more worn down physically, When people are inflicted with intrusive thoughts they beat themselves up more than anyone. Logically, a person will keep saying, "This is BS, I need to stop thinking these thoughts, re-direct... think about all the positive things going on, think of wonderful memories," eg, it's only a temporary (very temporary) reprieve. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a negative Nancy no matter how it may appear when I write. I agree, we can choose our thoughts but we aren't always in control. I appreciate you taking the time to read this. :)

    You'll excuse my language, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, but one of the most therapeutic things you can do is tell your brain to "f**k off." I know it sounds crazy but our rambling minds can sometimes create panic that goes way beyond reality. Every time you feel anxious, just use those two little words. Say them to yourself or say them out loud. And just keep saying it until your brain calms down.

    Another excellent post, Phillip. I cannot help but admire your perspicacity. As someone who works in the utility industry, I often contemplate the incredibly vulnerable nature of our electric grid. An extended large scale power outage would produce widespread havoc within a matter of weeks, essentially sending us backward hundreds of years. Thankfully the industry is moving toward more resilient, less interconnected systems, but it will still be a couple of decades before they are fully implemented.

    #44 Thank you for contributing to the discussion @Hervé Sabattier. What I find very powerful about the Viktor Frankl quote is that, for me, it says that we always have a choice and that is in how we respond to anything. Our circumstances or environment may influence or restrict our freedom and our choices, but because we are left with the ultimate choice of how we respond, that means we are always free. So, in this way, making no choice is still a choice we freely can make.

    Thank you Sara, your reply has made me reconsider my original comment. As someone who doesn't believe in absolutes it would be fairer to say if offering choices I would only offer ones I was happy with, if I am offered choices I am not comfortable with I either decline or negotiate. As to illusion I take your point and agree with your comments on it. However something which comes to mind is the illusionist/magician, who make people believe they have made a choice. The choices we make are often knowingly or unknowingly influenced by others. #34

You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring will live." Agreed again, "Choose life".

    #20 Thank you @John Rylance for your comment. I'd like to respond to two points I read in it. One, "Never offer someone a choice you can't live with." Has me thinking....it's a sensitive point. It makes me think that if the individual makes a choice you can't live with then that will definitely influence the future of the relationship. Two, I can so relate to the frustration of the choices with strings or limited choices, but I am not sure I agree with choice as an illusion because I can still choose whether to get the car or not, or go to another dealer, or wait for an alternative. Not happy about the circumstances, but the choice is very real and still mine.

However, every moment we chose to notice how we are thinking we have the opportunity to change the direction of our thoughts. It is a moment by moment practice. Best of luck to you on your journey.

    It is important to listen to our bodies but sometimes the brain does not want to cooperate no matter how hard one tries. I think these are vital tools to utlize with young children. Maybe if they learn to practice these skills when they are young, their coping skills will be so much better than someone of my age. I'm still working on a lot of this. Some days it works great, others not so much. But, I'm a work in progress and I do believe we are capable of change no matter what age... it can just take so much longer when our brains were programmed in a certain way and we reacted to that programming for years, if that makes sense? Great peice!

    #5 Hello Deb - I agree, when we store emotions in our bodies it can create unhelpful emotional patterns which can lead to unhelpful movement patterns (and thinking patterns). The human body is such a wonderfully interwoven system! I look forward to learning more about your work and checking out your book. My eBook Resolution of Dichotomy is available on my website - www.dancingwithease.com please visit.

    This is so true. When we constantly dwell on things that hurt or angered us, it will keep in a negative frame of mind. But when we choose to think about the more positive things that we want to do or just come our way, it will keep us from going down into a pit that is hard to climb out of.

    In my book Laura I invite people to connect with a buddy to share what they are learning - 2 of my readers @Deb 🐝 Helfrich & @Cyndi wilkins connected & have inially become buddies to share and exform latent anger that has been sleeping within for awhile. I share strategies for s forming emotion, beliefs & energy that has been stuck in our body. When we pay attention & release energy that is stuck in our body memory we find new found freedom.

    Thanks @🐝 Fatima G. Williams Fatima for connecting me to Laura's post. I agree with you Laura. I sense you might have an interest in my book, Trust Your Senses - Embodied Wisdom for The Modern Age https://www.amazon.com/dp/0995437203
    As @Deb Helfrich says - it is s book to experience not just read - and it is all about what I call our next step to integrate thinking with sensing the language of our body - a language we have neglected as we have been so focussed on thinking as if it only comes from
    Our mind- brain. I believe the more we develop these capacities we will have another exponential shift in our expanding awareness and potential. I look forward to connecting.

    "Listen to your body" This is as simple and as complex as life gets, @Laura Donnelly. Our wisdom is our body, but as a modern society we have build so many structures and habits that ignore our bodies that we never even take a few seconds to listen to the constant dialogue our bodily sensations are trying to engage us in.

    Glad to have you buzzing around the hives on beBee, and I look forward to reading more from you!

    Hi Laura First off Welcome to beBeeland🤗🐝🤗

    Great buzz on listening to our body and controlling out thoughts and it's actions. @Laura Donnelly. I am reading a book called Trust your senses by @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee Where she talks about listening and trusting our sense. She talks about our inner dialogue and how to create inner freedom. I am halfway through as it's pretty intense and a wonderful book.
    Choice plays a very big Vital factor here ! Do we choose to listen to what our body is saying?

    @Zacharias Voulgaris- I like your buzz and highlighting that imagination isn't fantasy. I love the topic of your buzz as I too recently wrote on "The Paradox of Imagination. I ended the buzz saying "Imagination brings us creative solutions that we haven't imagined. This is the Paradox of Imagination". Your reference to Tesla’s discoveries is spot on. Thank you for writing such an interesting buzz.

    #2 Although I don't agree with the theory of two hemispheres operating independently and exclusively undertaking certain functions, I see your point. We neef to strive for balancing different aspects of our brain functions, though even an imbalance in these functions can be very interesting and insightful even.
    Ian Weinberg
    08/01/2017 #2 Ian Weinberg
    Raises the whole issue of left and right hemisphere function. In all right-handed people (and most lefties), the left hemisphere is the seat of logic, reason, measurement, speech etc = 'intelligence'. The right hemisphere is the seat of big-picture sensitivity, emotion = intuition. Both hemispheres are comprehensively connected to provide the multi-faceted appreciation of experience and interaction. It's when one hemisphere dominates the other or when there are varying degrees of connectivity, that things get interesting. For interest (and references), see a previous post of mine at https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/re-discovering-the-intuitive-mind

    They are both complimentary, messups are no excuse to suppress one for the other.
    We don't upgrade like machines with replacing faculties, learning is about the inputs as well as using the faculties properly. Suppressing one may possibly damage the ability to self correct
