Quantum Theory / Particle Physics
May 9, 2013
We experience time as if it were a stream in flow that moves in a continuous manner and in one direction. I started thinking about the blips, or more to the point, one blip, a slight pause, and another blip. The question I asked myself was what is going on between the blips? As far as I am concerned looking at the computer screen, nothing. So, maybe time has the property of being granular. We wouldn’t notice it as such, just because the blips occur so fast, like the way a television picture regenerates itself. For the purposes of this discussion, and from the previous, I think of time as something that just lets things happen, anything. And if time is granular, it is discrete or discontinuous. Time itself may just blink on and off like a light switch. Then there may be an opportunity to travel to the stars, and to do so “instantaneously”, if we could get that gap in time big enough to get into.
