Life & Philosophy Psychology

Debating the nature of time 

The future already happened. We are just working backwards to fulfill an eventuality. But some physicists are leaning toward a philosophical route to explain the meaning of time. Instead of longing on the future, they focus on the present. 

“The future is not now real and there can be no definite facts of the matter about the future.” What is real is “the process by which future events are generated out of present events.” – Lee Smolin, Theoretical Physicist

Is the “NOW,” space, time all there is? As they say, let go and let God.

“Future events exist, she said, they just don’t exist now. “The block universe is not a changing picture. It’s a picture of change.” Things happen when they happen”  – Jenann Ismael, Philosopher University of Arizona
