The Independence of Moments and Eternity Theorem

What is the past? Nothing more than the moment you just spent thinking about it.
What is the future? An eternity that lies somewhere in the distance from where you are right now.

So here's the deal. How can a moment be held responsible for the fate of an eternity? Not logical is it?
So life must roll on in anticipation of the eternity to come rather than in remorse or regret or even over-zealous celebration of a moment that has long passed by, right?

And there you have it, 'The Independence of Moments and Eternity Theorem!'

Funnily enough, by virtue of it's own argument, for this theorem to be validated, it should be lost in a moment too!

Very very confusing!!

Ria said...

Hmm...me is confused as well!! :P

Mulling Over My Thoughts said...

@Punam & Ria :> Oh? Ok...

The past = A Moment
The future = An Eternity

(The present, lost somewhere in between.)

But the point of the theory was to put across the age old notion that the future is independent of our past. No matter what has happened before, tomorrow holds promise because the past is nothing more than the moments we now spend thinking about it and the future is an eternity because it is yet to come. What should you value more, or rather live for, a moment or an eternity?

Hence the Independence of Moments and Eternity Theorem.

Hey Bikram, Thanks for explaining that. :) Now it's clear. Again, I'm wondering at your ability to analyse time.. It's amazing. :)

Hehehe...and I still maintain I dont understand the absurdity that is TIME. I mean if I did, I wouldn't have come up with a theory that makes An Eternity, A Moment in the blink of an eye!

That was brilliant! It makes so much sense.
But I can't spend even a moment thinking of it if I have to follow it :P

Mulling Over My Thoughts said...

@Harini:> And I'd be insulted if you did spend another moment thinking about it too!
:D

but these moments make up an eternity... if a moment does not fall in step would it not be a different eternity all together...
ps: started blogging somewhere else.. its on my profile... i hope to stick around longer this time...:)

@Swayam:> It doesnt matter if the moment falls in step or not, its already done what was needed. There will always be an eternity to look forward to. It's worthless to worry about the moment when eternity lies in wait!
