I have looked other perceptions of time and found there is more than a measure of movement.


He starts out on the right track and then goes off the rails.

I agree with TheAstroChuck that time is the fourth dimension.

But I think the point is that the past and future are illusions. Time is like a railroad track. We are on the time-train and the present is the track beneath us. The past is the track behind us. The future is the track in front of us. But it's all the same track. The past, present and future, all exist simultaneously. It is only our perception that is limited.

I got as far as Jesse Elder saying that if I imagine a future event, I'm catching a memory of my future self. Then I imagined that the next thing I'd see in the video was Jesse Elder's head exploding as the noxious gasses from all the bullshit he was spouting, spontaneously ignited. Then I waited for my future self to experience that in order to remember it. Shame, it never happened. It would have been so good to control the future by imagining it. However, illusory or not, my time was too precious to me, to spend any more of it watching that tosh.


I think it is a mistake. Time is not an illusion for us in the way we experience life. It may be an illusion to a scientist or mathematician working on these concepts but even they must start their day with the alarm clock going off each morning just like the rest of us.
