Our physical reality is made up of four dimensions. There are three spatial dimensions: height, width, and depth. The fourth dimension is time. We have many devices which are involved with the measurement of time: clocks, watches, calendars, hourglasses, etc.The measurement of time involves counting of repeated cycles from a predetermined start point. There are many divisions used to count cycles of time. They range from relatively short durations such as nanoseconds to long durations such as a Great Year (The precession of the equinoxes which takes approximately 26,000 years). For everyday living we generally pay attention to the measure of minutes, hours, days, and years.It is easy enoughto take a measurement of time thanks to observers who noted the cycles thousands of years ago.
Yet time is a bit more slippery than measurements of repeated cycles indicate.
as "I lost track of time" or "Time flies when you're having fun"
indicate there is a bit more to time. Time has biological,
psychological, and spiritual components.
The biological component of
time is involved in the circadian rhythm of the body. The circadian
rhythm is linked to the 24 hour solar day. This cycle most notably is
what tells the body it is time to sleep or wake up by triggering
chemical releases in the brain and body. Experiments have shown that
when a person or animal is put into an artificial environment
completely cut off from the sun, the circadian rhythm will change. One
notable experiment involved a woman who stayed in a cavefor four
months. In a short amount of time her average day became 35 hours long,
she slept for six hours a "day," and when she left the cave at the end
of the experiment she was quite certain she lived there for only two
months. The circadian rhythm is a biological function of time which
links us to the measurement of the day.
The psychological component
of time is not quite so dependent on measurements. Try this experiment
on your own. You will need a watch or clock which has a seconds counter
and a friend. When your friend tells you to begin, close your eyes.
When you feel that one minute has gone by open your eyes. Don't try to
be tricky and count seconds, but simply try to feel the passing of
time. When you open your eyes, tell your friend. Now your friend will
tell you how much time has really passed. How did you do? Too fast? Too
slow? Almost ontarget?......
Andy Monkman: The "Flower of Life" can be found in all major religions of the world. It contains the patterns of creation as they emerged from the "Great Void". Everything is made from the Creator"s thought. After the creation of the Seed of Life the same vortex"s motion was continued, creating the next structure known as the Egg of Life. This structure forms the basis for music, as the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between the tones and the half tones in music. I...What is Alchemy ?
Anthony North: Of all the esoteric arts, none are more controversial than alchemy. Indeed, the standard image we have of the Magician – pointy hat, wise look on his ancient face, and surrounded by books and glass vials – is really that of the Alchemist. Existing in a world of mystery, the Alchemist seemed to be a dark, occult shadow over much of Europe from Medieval times to the birth of the modern world. And his claims were quite often fantastic.Famous alchemists: Europe produced many alchemist...Archimedes Death Ray device put to the test
Massachuessets Institute of Technology: Ancient Greek and Roman historians recorded that during the siege of Syracuse in 212 BC, Archimedes (a notably smart person) constructed a burning glass to set the Roman warships, anchored within bow and arrow range, afire. The story has been much debated and oft dismissed as myth. TV's MythBusters were not able to replicate the feat and “busted” the myth.Intrigued by the idea and anintuitive belief that it could work, MIT's 2.009ers decided to ap...Cracking the alchemists' secret recipe
A 500-year old mystery surrounding the centerpiece of the alchemists' lab kit has been solved by UCL (University College London) and Cardiff University archaeologists. Since the Middle Ages, mixing vessels – or crucibles – manufactured in the Hesse region of Germany have been world renowned because of their ability to withstand strong reagents and high temperatures. Previous work by the team has shown that Hessian crucibles have been found in archaeological sites across the world, including ...The eternal now
Anthony North: Foretelling the future is one of the trickiest areas of the paranormal. Within known theorizing, there is very little of a concrete nature that can suggest it is possible. Hence, much skepticism is placed on the subject. For my own research, I"ve looked at the idea that possible future outcomes can be gleaned by unconscious knowledge and intuitions in the present. However, I won"t bore the reader by going over these "mechanisms" again. I want to look further than that.: For whilst...Feng shui creates better websites
Could someone or
something switch us off? Could it possibly be true that our world is just a
computer program, or a hologram, or a dream? Although it's about the weirdest
thing you could think of, there are some tantalizing clues this might indeed be
the case. The stuff we call 'reality' simply isn?t very real after all.
Welcome to the outskirts of reality. Welcome to the place where theoretical
physics and philosophy meet, and where religion and science loose their meaning.

To most of us, the word "alchemy" calls up the
picture of a medieval and slightly sinister laboratory in which an aged,
black-robed wizard broods over the crucibles and alembics that are to bring
within his reach the Philosopher's Stone, and with that discovery, the formula
for the Elixir of life and the transmutation of metals. But one can scarcely
dismiss so lightly the science -- or art, if you will --that won to its service
the lifelong devotion of men of culture and ...
