What Is Time?

Time is a measure of density—a matter to energy or M/E ratio. But the same M/E can be achieved in different ways. Why? Because as Einstein taught us, there’s an equivalence between matter and energy. When matter (M) gets dense and fast enough, it becomes energy (E)—as evinced in the fourth state of matter experiment. Similarly, when energy gets fast and dense enough, it becomes matter (precipitates). When M is fast, E can be slow. But when M is slow, E has to be fast.

To put it another way: when light is slow, it is itself, and our energy is maximized. When light is fast, it precipitates as matter, and our density accrues.

As the universe expands and accelerates, density is decreasing. When our density accrues, we age.

When I was sick, I had fallen behind time. I was too dense. I had the right M/E, but I was achieving it via the wrong speeds. Once, when I was donating blood, the attendant told me: “If your bag doesn’t start filling faster, we’re going to have to throw it away.” My blood, like the rest of me, was both too dense and not dense enough. (We have to go down in order to go up.)

I was achieving my M/E with slow matter and fast light, instead of with fast matter and slow light (viz. the Atacama skeleton). With Atacama, most likely, she would have appeared normal to us before she died. Our brains play an active role in composing what we see. See the work of Donald Hoffman, Beau Lotto, Anil Seth, and others working in the fascinating field of human perception and cognition.

Daniel Dennett: “The user-friendly world that we live in—the manifest image—is sort of a friendly user-illusion in the same way that the desktop of your laptop is a user illusion. It simplifies—and it distorts, in helpful ways, for most purposes. If you really want to know what’s going on, you have to go backstage.”

The central paradox is this: To keep pace with time, we must both increase our density and increase our speed. We can achieve this in one of two ways. We start, let’s say, at the equator. We can slow down matter and speed up light—akin to moving toward the south pole, or backward in time. This is a 3-dimensional movement. Or, we can speed up matter and slow down light—akin to moving toward the south pole and north pole simultaneously. This 4-dimensional movement is how time proceeds. Time’s motion is that of a tesseract.

We start at 7. If we “slow down and speed up” in order to increase our density, we’re moving backward in time. Our metabolic rate slows down (becomes more alkaline) and our pH speeds up (becomes more acidic). We’re burning energy to make matter. This form of metabolism is always available to us, and it is this switch that we observe in the Warburg Effect. Cancerous cells are working time in reverse.

If, on the other hand, we “speed up and slow down” in order to increase our density, we are moving forward in time. Our metabolic rate speeds up (becomes more acidic) and our pH slows down (becomes more alkaline). We are burning matter to make energy. In the former, we are like a flame of light inside a globe of matter. In the latter, we are a flame of matter inside a globe of light.

For matter, density is the inverse of speed. To increase my speed decreases my density. But for light, density and speed move in tandem. To increase my speed increases my density.

It’s possible to reach a metabolic tipping point, where the M/E ratio shifts to E/M, and speed and density increase in tandem. I have experienced this shift, briefly, three times. It’s almost impossible to describe how wonderful it feels. A sense of calm, clear-headed strength was only part of it. Whereas previously, moment by moment, I perceived my energy as being spent, in this state, moment by moment, I felt my energy renewed.

The dark side? The fumes that were emitted by things like plastic bottles and chemical fragrances, which were almost unbearable. That which is synthetic cannot easily perform the twin-poled motion of the tesseract—to speed up and slow down at the same time. For a long while, the mercury in my teeth held me back. The amount of energy required to increase the material speed of mercury was too high; my mouth became an energy sieve. My father died of squamous cell carcinoma in 1995 (tumor at the base of the tongue / floor of the mouth). He neither smoked nor drank—but he did have a mouth full of mercury. His type of cancer has been linked to human papillomavirus (HPV). According to this model, both oncogenesis and pathogenesis are a function of moving backward in time, when cells “slow down and speed up” instead of speeding up and slowing down.

This isn’t a screed against mercury, nor against plastic, nor against the present-day medical system. This is a clarion call of freedom. This is a song of celebration, and an acknowledgement of our oneness. No one did this to us; we did it to ourselves. This is the system we designed, using the best information we had at the time. But we have better information now, and we’re going to do better, moving forward.
