Put pi in your back pocket and learn to see in more than three dimensions.
Envision time as a series of sphere-membranes nesting within each other inside a sphere. But time’s arrow is a straight line extending outward from the center of the sphere. The relationship between matter and energy is analogous to the relationship between a point and a sphere, and it’s bridgeable by pi.
For matter, which is pure mass, there is no time; there is only space. For light, which is massless, there is no space, there is only time. While we’re in this plane of existence, we’re constantly toggling between the point and the sphere—between the fixed present, and the future field of possibilities.
When we accelerated the photons in the double-slit experiment, they did not move forward in space, but time. They changed dimensions, moving from one point on time’s arrow (a line), to a future point—which, from the point of view of the present, is a sphere. But we are blind to the future; we do not see light that has increased its speed, causing time to slow down. We only see light that is cycling at our own speed. Future universes appear to us as black holes because of this blindness. In the double-slit experiment, we do not see the wave pattern because we are only capable of observing one future: the future we enter. The future we become.
In other words: Time and light are two sides of the same coin. Time that goes fast is light. Light that goes slow is time. Time is the speed of light in the realm of matter. It’s the pi ratio.
We experience time as akin to a movement through space, but in truth, it’s a becoming. Matter, as it approaches the speed of light, does not “go” anywhere; it becomes light. The movement is not geographical but ontological. This is why the passage of time is a fiction. We are not going; we are becoming.
