21 October 2016
I promised the 18th which has turned into the 21st, for which I hope makes the wait worthwhile.
Parallel par·al·lel ˈperəˌlel/
"Greetings, fellow souls, readers and occupants of the galaxy, to all whom these words have come. A fair welcome and hello we bid you all, deep thanks is offered. We likewise offer greetings to the remainder of humanity not reading these words, aware we are that our one sided extension of such interaction will be neither acknowledged nor recognized. No matter is this, as we all benefit, both greeter & greeted, from & by the extension of greetings to the unawarely sought.
Simple, easy and already understood are the definitions above, yet loaded with assumption and limitations are they. Aren't they?
Existence or substance is or are, itself and themselves; if the question arises, the subject it possesses; end of discussion.
Existence is absolute, but never defined by the limits humans see. Much exists not subject to human decisions or conventions, despite humans being unaware of the existence. How then do humans ascertain the absoluteness?
Easy say we, through acceptance of existence undetected. By humans. This is why we speak to you and describe what surrounds all of mankind, invisibly. Our words create the idea, evidence of the existence. Ideas exist.
Reality is both alternating and parallel, for humanity and for all individuals souls who comprise it. You may jump from any one line of events to another line, at any momentum; or moment. In this way, the definition of parallel offered above, is incorrect; distance is not the same between two parallel lines. Distance is time.
The parallel lines can be moved closer together, or farther apart and remain parallel. This is the compression of time, in practice and operation. This is how time seems to expand or contract, to fly by or drag along, to a human on Earth.
All things exist at the same time, simultaneously. There is no other option for existence. The tree and the house exist together; as you look upon the one, the other does not cease to exist or disappear simply because it is briefly or temporarily out of view. There is no difference between physical existence humans detect and the existence of anything, anywhere in the universe. All things are simultaneous.
All events, stories, occurrences, happenings and incidents all occur simultaneously. The parallelity between them is the illusion; time is only a factor in the creation of the untrue image seen to be so real inside the hoax of time.
To alternate between them is no more than a switch in the point-of-view.
To perceive and visit alternate, parallel realities requires the notions of future and past to be discarded, an obstacle nearly insurmountable for a human upon Earth. Design and free will of your soul erect the high barrier which prevents many a human from achieving awake and aware, what s/he can easily do asleep; visit or create any event.
Future lives are but lives occurring along a different route. The condition of parallelity between separate human courses of life is a design, not a separate condition unable to be controlled.
Herein lies the challenge of predictions; to ask for one requires the imposition of an artificial timeline a requesting human cannot control. There is no outside control of your life; all things occurring to you are by your own hand, your own choice, your sole decision. Some larger events that seem to occur independently of your will to see them come about - such as the election of a political candidate preferred or disliked - are specific, personal and individual decisions to join the group effort, the exercise and the associated emotions. It is your choice.
There happen many things you control principally, and aware you are of your decisions. To choose one store over another, a certain drink, or route home or a spoken word, are a choice you have and make always.
Many choices seem fixed, unchanging and all powerful. They are not; they are simply things happening you chose to see, to know of, to feel or understand. Many things occur to many humans of which you are not nor will you ever be aware. Such events are not your reality, yet exist for others.
In this same way, there are many series and courses of events available to you, of which you choose to be unaware. This choice does not erase the existence of alternatives.
We return to the notion of time compression and expansion, the sensation that an hour has flown by or dragged along tediously. The seemingly impartial march of the clock or shadow of the sundial, is steady and constant. The sensation felt is far different; this feeling is the compression and expansion of the illusion of time, its compaction or stretch.
We return a moment to the idea of past and future, and offer human lives as an example. Reincarnation is a common word; understood by both disbeliever and faithful alike.
There are no reincarnations. There are incarnations, all of which happen simultaneously. The notion of sequence applies to the environment humans choose then label, inside the dense limitations of the dimensionality which creates the environment.
Removal of the human calendar does not change the experience of the incarnation, only the placement a human life might be given along an artificial line of sequencing.
The line is not artificial to humans who create it, so the concept of past lives is likewise valid. This creates the reciprocal concept of future.
Lives are schedules, blueprints and plans. The construction of a house cannot predict exactly how many days, workers, pieces of wood or nails will be used. The main items however, often are precisely planned; number and size of rooms and placement upon the land. As each smaller detail is examined, more possibility of variation is encountered.
Your lives are set forth by each of you, indvidually, to contain many key parts; birth, death, marriage, divorce, friend, job, lover, enemy and event. Sometimes the human calendar date is scheduled precisely, for and between the souls involved; sometimes not. Just as the architect might indicate concrete for a foundation, without knowing well how much is used or left over.
All lives occur to your soul together. They do not occur to your body out of sequence. The influence upon a current life from a past one is no more than your choice - always your choice - to establish a latitudinal connection between the longitudes of other lives.
When the prediction of a future is asked, it requests a link to another sequence parallel to that from which the request originates. A main event in another life - one considered the future - might not yet have been carried out, along the alternate experience. Thus no answer will come to you in this life, where other future events will. If they are all in the future, why are some known and other not, you might wonder. They are not in the future and not always decided. You have the option to alter the other life you deem the future, in this life of now, and vice versa. You live the future today, of a future which you can turn into the past, if you prefer. It is but a matter of switching labels.
Likewise, the idea the past has already occurred and all events are settled, is equally elusive. What you deem to be - because you are taught about - past history, is not the complete set of events the illusion of time presents them to be.
To know of a past experience is simply a look into the blueprint for another life occurring at the same time.
When an experience in the current life seems to pass the time quickly, it is because the activity is enjoyable. This sensation is a return closer to your more natural state, the condition of your soul. The attraction of many narcotic and hallucinatory substances is the physical override supplied, which achieves similar, if humanly negative, effects. The mind becomes reconnected to its true state, and the soul temporarily functions as it naturally operates. Time flies and you feel good.
A current life and immediate event a part of it, are drawn closer to other lives, events and existences. The life and lives involved remain separate and parallel, even though the distance between courses of lives are not constant or straight; they curve, bend, push closer and draw apart, but rarely cross outside dreams.
The physical pain of unknown origin in the current life can be an injury occurring in another life, either past or future. Remove time from the equation, and all three possibilities - current, past and future - become just alternatives. Always parallel, never consciously crossing but in a dream, your soul can alternate between the three, independent of a calendar or any numbering system the incarnated souls create.
How can you visit the alternate reality? Ask yourself to travel in a dream, and you shall. You might cause yourself to remember only a portion of the visit, or none at all. After returning from the visit and reawakening, you will have forgotten, both details and your decision to not remember . If you prefer differently, consciously ask yourself not to block, erase or entirely limit the experience. Ask yourself to remember relevant, unharmful detail and likely you shall.
Belief that you can visit, arranges it. It is not a dream, much as it seems. It is a visit to a parallel, alternate reality.
Collective events, involving and affecting a large number of souls, are more obvious. These events form recorded history yet create the illusion, by their recounting, that an equally sequential history exists, possibly available, for any person. The more individual the event, the less attached it will ever be to time's illusion. The pleasant walk through the woods where no souls are found or observed, creates an event unable to be recorded, remembered and reviewed by other humans. These moments are as real, true and solid as any, yet form no part of a written or recorded history.
Larger events, involving many, occur by collective choice. The outcome of an election is produced where humans invent and practice the concept, offer candidates and await the result of the sum total of many individual choices.
When the future is predicted, many choices have already been made along the Earth timeline. There is no isolated mechanism in the human mind to delve into and observe the collective choices and cumulative effect. Collective communication provides it, as are given these words read now. From our point-of-view, the effect is immediately and instantly available, if often concealed.
Distortion of choice by advance knowledge of outcome shatters the collective effect selected, if the many involved move from the original decision. Humans consistently if not universally pursue good to avoid bad, sometimes haphazardly changing the definitions along the way. Original choice is made with specific and valuable purpose; disclosure of already chosen outcomes can undermine the benefit intended.
The disclosure of the outcome in larger events, however improbable human preference, observation and habit make that ending seem, causes a questioning of assumptions. Insight thus understanding become the reward otherwise lost in a vast sea of complete disclosure, humans pursue.
To incarnate requires recognition of the parallel, alternate reality of existence in order to be able to set it aside. Once boxed up and put away, the effects remain, however far removed they remain from the five physical senses humans use."

Proof reading of chapters 5 through 8 ("Capítulo Cuatro" comes later today, the 18th of October) takes a break to ask The Committee to address a half dozen questions about souls, which arose from chapter 3 of "The History of the Future."
A reader asks:
"So, a soul can be newly created. I have read that before in Michael Newton's book but did not quite believe it because I had the idea that a soul is eternal. A few questions..."
Q1. If soul can be newly created then it can also be destroyed. Is that true?
C: A soul is not newly created as you are suggesting, and human language is the obstacle. Are material, matter and physical substances in, of and upon Earth created or simply changed? As you know, changed. More atoms and molecules are not constantly and continuously created, not inside the dimensionality of Earth, although this is possible. From the human point-of-view, this cannot happen.
Likewise, new souls come from existing ones; there is no limit to increase in mass, volume and size because these concepts and the measurement of them, do not apply to your soul.
The newest member cannot be destroyed, ended, taken away, banished or eliminated and has & retains the connection to all souls and everything there is. In this way, it is not created, but rather benefits from everything already available and in existence.
Q2. If so, why and by whom can it be destroyed?
C: It cannot be destroyed, as we have explained. This is not possible and no force, individual or collective can do so. The concept simply does not exist.
Q3. If soul can be newly created, why is it said that it existed forever? Could not get that point. Do you mean that new creation means including something in the soul which was not there previously? What is that exactly... knowledge/experience/self awareness or something else?
C: A new soul springs forth with connections to all souls and things of each and every soul. Thus it is not a new soul, but rather a new direction.
Q4. What's the difference between the soul of a human and that of an animal?
C: The animal's body. Then, the life course chosen, subject to the conditions, characteristics and restraints applicable to the body, society and environment of the animal
Q5. Does an animal soul reincarnate as a human soul?
C: There are souls, not animal or human varieties. Any soul choosing to incarnate may do so as chosen. The manifestation of the creature selected is not limited to human classifications of type, size, species, genus or other grouping.
Q6. What is the purpose of creation of a soul?
C: Growth. General, specific, individual and collective.
13 October 2016
Humans beings cannot remove themselves from time and enter another segment of it, not physically. That suggestion is redundant; the condition of being human requires a physical connection to the environment which allows it.
The human being's mind - her and his soul - may and does visit many places and experiences the human being will consider to be a different time. Time travel.
Remember, time is real on Earth's surface but is an illusion away from it. Rise above Earth and hover motionless above the planet; allow it to rotate below. The angle of the central star, what humans call the sun, does not change. The angle of light entering the window of the spacecraft in which the motionless observation takes place, does not move.
All who have seen a sundial know the hands of a clock will match the steady movement of the shadow across the dial. If the shadow ceases to move, has time stopped?
Time on Earth is simply the rotation of the sphere humans occupy. Stop the rotation or move away from it; time stops.
Imagine a human travelling into space, observing Earth from half the distance to the moon then pressing the stop rotation button on the astronaut's computer screen. What happens to the memories which occurred inside Earth time, along the numbering line called "calendar"?
If the brand and model insignia are removed from a car, the automobile does not cease to exist or operate. Ford badges can be attached to Honda. Do the many trips the Honda took before wearing another carmaker's logo become erased from memory? Of course not.
The memories of time's passage as human remain after removal of the calendar, just as an old, undated photograph always shows its captured image. This demonstrates a calendar is not necessary for the creation or retention of a moment.
Your souls are a massive file of undated photographs, images and videos free to be arranged in any chosen order, because of the absence of time.
Earth life imposes a view through time which, as the hovering example above Earth demonstrates, is a creation of Earth, for and unto only Earth. How then can time travel occur?
Not with your body, not physically. The agreement made when incarnating requires acceptance of the limits imposed upon a body. The limits manifest in the three dimensions separated from the higher dimensions by the vibrational range restraints required to operate the human body.
Just as a radio or television device will function only within specific ranges of vibrations - or frequencies - of electromagnetic signals, so will the human body only operate inside certain parameters.
The human mind requires no such constraints, except for the human choice to attach mental limits to physical ones. This is a choice, not a requirement. Most humans choose to raise the children to whom they give birth but as all of you know, not all humans do and it is not required for physical survival. Some of you are raised without parents, some raised by parents who did not create you biologically and some cared for by a community which might include or exclude specific parents. This latter example is common in many species on Earth and has been more common on Earth's human history than currently known.
Once the human mind detaches from the body during sleep - a nearly universal occurrence every time a human enters a sleep pattern - the physical restraints of the body and the illusion of time no longer apply. This is how memories of the dead and others still alive interact with one another in places neither have ever visited, doing things seemingly impossible, whimsical or belonging to another era on Earth. The sensation of one's activities during the dream itself is always logical; only upon reawakening can a dream's events seem twisted or out of place. This sensation is created entirely by the re-imposition of the limits of Earth's environment, and re-entry into the body subject to those constraints.
Your dream is as real as life around you, and often even more so. It is more real because it is less limited, less blocked, less contained and less restrained. You may re-enter this environment any "time" you choose; simply fall asleep. Argue you might, that it is not possible to fall asleep anytime chosen, that "time" must pass before the ability to sleep returns naturally. Yes, and so is seen the link between time and the body, both artificial constraints belonging to the dense environment of Earth.
For any of you having the experience of general anesthesia, you will recall that upon regaining consciousness, there comes no sensation of time passed. Unlike many a dream, either overnight or during a nap, where indeed there immediately exists the sensation of elapsed time, the anesthesia episode rarely provides the effect of a dream or the sensation of time's advance. Only a clock returns a patient to a moment of Earth time otherwise difficult or impossible to determine.
This occurs because your mind - your soul - is forced to detach from its information link artificially. The human brain does not contain memories or information; it is simply a transceiver, a physical interface to allow information - ideas and motor commands - to be received and directed. Think of touchscreen buttons to activate many devices, which is essentially the function the brain serves to the body, but for both data and physical movements; information and commands.
Anesthesia shuts off the body from its radio receiver, so upon removal of the numbness, the body returns to its place. During general anesthesia, time continues along without the human mind - thus body - connected to it.
During dreams, your mind remains connected to your body, the reason you are able to regain consciousness from many internal and external sources. Sounds cause the eardrum-to-brain attachment to re-start consciousness. Physical touch will also work, as will strong smells or intense light. None of these inputs will rouse the anesthetized person, which requires removal of the physical barrier - the anesthetic drug - for the body-brain unit to operate again.
How does this allow a human to visit and change history? It doesn't.
The soul - called the mind when joined to a human body for the journey across Earth's surface - is what rearranges experience. Experience is called memory by humans. Work experience thus knowledge, as is understood by anyone who has it, often does not require acquisition in a specific order. Typically there are phases to the gaining of knowledge which better serve the learner if accomplished in a certain order - such as arithmetic before algebra - however medical students do not have to study cardiovascular, neurological or endocrine process in fixed, specific ordering to become proficient doctors for diagnosis and treatment in these areas.
How does the soul exist? How is experience stored, retrieved, rearranged and how can the past be visited and changed? Chapter 4 will explain how the past is not changed but rather a new course is chosen to create the sensation of a changed past. For now, the explanation will be given how human memories - experience - exist and why time can never apply.
The soul of any living being has always existed. There is no beginning; thus no end. There is no death, no birth. There is creation of a new soul, but it is not birth. The newly created soul is attached to all knowledge available, both the knowledge of the new soul's creators - other souls - and all knowledge of all souls, of all of you. Access to any part of or all of this knowledge is immediately available for the asking. All that is required is awareness, available for the asking.
If you might say to yourself, "I don't know about something because I don't know it exists" then immediately a list of things that exist that you are not aware of, can and will be provided. As the list is examined, its reader will remember each item, if not the many details of each entry. As much intricacy or summary as are preferred are also instantly available, just for the asking. This is sensation of the new soul, no different from the souls around it but for freedom to use will and desire to seek or experience any new thing with or without approval, involvement or exclusion of any other soul.
The soul exists as the energy inside the building blocks of the universes, the atoms and their components, the neutrons, protons and electrons. The solidity of physical substance is the result of a vibrational range slower than the smaller, more numerous pieces which create it. Wood, concrete and steel are hard, harder, strong, stronger and more dense to humans, but only inside the environment of Earth.
At vibrations above Earth existence - think of radio wave frequencies - the soul is not subjected to the effects. The soul creates them.
In the environment of the soul, it is possible to observe, penetrate, traverse, control and manipulate anything in the human density.
No sun rises or sets on the soul, whose light is permanent and bright in every way, in any place the soul selects. Experience is stored in what humans would perceive to be a computer file, at the sub-, sub-, sub-, sub-, sub- sub- molecular level.
From these many levels below and inside Earth density - from where physical matter is composed thus controlled - experience or memories are created. These are stronger than the strongest steel, more permanent than the most permanent thing imaginable.
Access is gained mentally. No time exists because no angles of light shift by movement. The light of the sun is created at a density level far above the existence of experience and memory, and this light is the marker of human time. Deep inside the vast reaches within the atoms inside the molecules of the materials of the sun making light, is the source of light itself.
This is where experience is stored. This is the energetic filing cabinet of human experience. This is where travel to previous and future moments occurs, and from where access can be had.
All things exist simultaneously. All new creation can be labeled as new or old, or the future or the past, as preferred. Once the experience is wrapped in the label of time, it can seem to form part of the illusion.
To visit and change history is a human concept. The true effect is the creation of an alternative and insertion of the newly created alternative into an artificially ordered sequence, in order to frame it as preferred and desired.
If you prefer to return to a moment of Earth time illusion and suffer a mishap - or to return to the memory of a mishap and replace it with something you deem more pleasant - you can, you might and you may. There will be an effect on your life in your current physical course, the path you run along in the body you have chosen.
The rearrangement of events to your soul has no effect. The increase in events, memory thus experience, enrich your soul and so you are here. The rearrangement of events to your physical body has enormous effect.
It is of no consequence for souls to create steel from thin air, in your Earth environment, and erect a building. In fact, the building itself can be made to appear in an instant, if the construction steps are preferred by-passed. The effect on Earth is large, and thus rarely pursued. Ability does not create arrogance; the more experienced a soul, the more humble, more awed by the gift and beneficence, it is. What experience gives.
Nevertheless, it is possible and common to create a facsimile, copy or clone of the environment the many incarnated souls possess, and alter one aspect for effect. The original version remains and proceeds along the course its creators produce, either humanly unwitting or well aware in & at their souls. You who wish to see the effect of the one change, do so with your photocopy of the intersections of the lives and things in them, of the many others around you.
You create an alternate reality. You create a new experience. You visit and change the mix, and rearrange the new entry into an ordering where new sequential labels apply, as seen from the Earth number time illusion.
You change the future.
You change the past.
08 October 2016
The past has already happened and the future hasn't happened yet. "Now" = anything not falling into either category. How long is "now"? How long does it last?
The answer depends on how long from this instant the future will begin, or how long ago the past ends. When somebody says, "Do it this instant" they set up a definition for "now", since moving your car out of the driveway is going to require a minute or two.
Does the future begin 2 minutes from right now? If it involves the use of a hydrotreater being overhauled, the future will begin when the work is complete and the unit returned to service. And that will take a few days.
Anybody can appreciate these examples of how long "now" is, by different circumstances, and so comes the first example of time as an illusion; it can be compressed or expanded from the tiniest sliver of a second to several days. How long does electricity require to flow through a battery & light bulb circuit? 1/300 millionth of a second. What will be the future effect of it? The future of the relationship between bulb and battery begins to unfold in two 300 millionths of a second. When did the past history of the relationship end? Just a few hundred millionths of a second ago. The past, the future and the current moment all coming and going in just ten or twelve millionths of a second. If only bad marriages could be run that way….
The Committee speaks to us about the past, the future and the in-between called "now".
"Greetings fellow denizens and travelers of the universe, a pleasure to make your acquaintances or to have you make ours, if only by word written on our behalf.
The future is the past extended. Today you may look at a calendar to examine the months, years and decades of human life which has led you to where you are. Others among your civilization you do not know and with whom paths have never crossed, can do the same, the only common thread between you being a calendar. If no events or experience of the decades you remember cross, match or share with another human, the number line does not matter to your understanding of the event, or the other human's understanding. If a common purpose brings humans together, the number line might create a link along this line, which can gain new meaning in the future or in the now.
If no connection or intersection occurs, your past and future are irrelevant to you, jointly and separately.
Your past forms a line, when the days or nights are numbered. Just as numbers create lines of anything to which they are applied.
You can look upon the past you experienced. Yesterday ends the past. Six months, six years or six decades can be the start of a line ending yesterday. For each human aware of such line, it forms the past.
In six days, weeks or years you can stop and look back to see a longer version of the same line , extensions of which begin tomorrow. Because a line extends behind you, you see a line extending before you, also. Events will occur along the upcoming line, just as they occurred along the passed, or past, line. The idea of a predictable future is born.
There are many, infinite lines extending behind you. Ask anyone you know to tell their story, and a different line will appear. Thus infinite extensions are possible, going forward. If the past and the future are infinite in length, and number, then there is no past or future. There is only now.
We know the objection now being considered to what we say; that infinite alternative pasts are not possible. There is only one. We say, there is the one you choose to experience thus see, based on the number line you choose to assign.
We say, imagine Earth with no calendar, no counting of days and nights. This is easy; your planet teems with plants and animals which never do this. Many sea and land creatures live for as long as humans, and count no days or years to their existence. Human choice to do so, is a choice; it is not required. Ask an orca, sperm whale or orangutan.
As mankind's choice, how would the future and the past be defined? By measurement? Memory?
Yet humans choose to count the cycles, natural to Earth's existence and humans upon it, the one species of Earth doing so uniquely. This is to say, only humans on Earth recognize the past, and so only humans recognize a future. Does this mean animals have no future? From the point of view of the animal, yes, that is what it means.
Human choose to insist there is a future, because of the perception and memory of a past. This is taught and learned; ask a small child just learning to speak what s/he thinks her or his future will involve? No answer will come, because this child has not been taught to believe in a future. All older humans will insist the child has a future just as s/he has a past, and with this we agree, however only because a timeline filters the perception of the child's - and older and adult human - existence."

2+1+2+1+6 = 12, not a coincidence
[This book will be briefly available as both a MicroSoft Word (*.doc) and Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf) file once all chapters have appeared.]
This book is about Earth, time, reality, our galaxy and the universe also, the many things found in The Milky Way also part of other galaxies.
Why does time seem to stand still, speed up or sometimes not or have matter?
Many parts of this book are taken from the author's summarized channeled interviews. Other sections are question and answer (Q&A) sessions with the author's trio of guardian angel guides, a group nicknamed The Committee. The answers are quoted from this esteemed group - as much as sentences transliterated from telepathic beings can be quoted - come straight from the "afterlife" or Heaven, the place which surrounds us, that we as souls call home. A place we might not remember. The place from and which all humans come and return, when our journey across Earth is finished.
Reading this far means education and likely, but not necessarily formal schooling. It's where you probably remember seeing something like this, just as I do, too.
"The" number line:
..... -7 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 .....
Times, or plural, is multiplication. Or is it the measurement of……clock time? Or both?
Time goes forwards, never backwards. Numbers however go both forward and backwards…all day long. At night also, for nocturnal students of math.
If the hands of a clock are turned the "wrong" way, a calendar be printed where the first month is December and the last, January - remember, mathematics demonstrates the number line can go in either direction, and fast too; multiplication - then why can't time also go forwards and backwards? Why can't the sun rise in the west? Just because it does and has not, is no guarantee that will never happen.
Isn't the face of a clock a number line around a circle, a calendar another one on paper flip panel going in one of the two possible directions along a number line?
What is time, then? How does it make the future and past, creating their captive, the present moment?

The human day is divided into two dozen pieces, two halves of a dozen pieces each, a half dozen times ten within each piece, and another half dozen times ten again inside those pieces.
The sun climbs then descends, half its ascent in the dark, half the descent also in the dark. At least along the equator.
You can get more light and less dark, or vice versa, but it costs a lot of temperature; not too many humans pay that price. For many of us, warm darkness is preferable to bright cold.
Each 86,400 seconds make a day. I've always wondered how the night feels about that, since it's half and half of the two halves, or half the total. Living things need a cycle of light then darkness, but we pay less attention to the dark. What about all the animals that prefer light's absence; do they have no soul? I digress.
How do we keep track of the number of nights so hotels can charge customers correctly? Enter the number line, but only its positive half. No mathematician worth a degree would argue numbers cannot go backwards, but does that mean forward becomes backwards? If the sun rose in the west, it would not make any difference at high noon, so the direction in which numbers are counted is not always so important, unless it's for keeping track of assets and debts. Just ask a bank.
Rise above Earth to an altitude of three hundred meters, not quite one thousand feet, and observe the Earth below; beautiful, isn't it? From no matter where we are, it's beautiful. When buildings began to reach these heights in the late 1920s and early 30s, it must have been an amazing sensation for people who could not do it aboard a plane or a dirigible. Now it can be done it through a miniature remote controlled helicopter, a drone and made available to the computerized masses.
The Earth's circumference, the distance all the way 'round, is about 25,000 miles or 40,000 kilometers; nice round numbers. Earth rotates once each twenty four hours, making the speed about 1,040 / 1,667 miles / kilometers per hour.
The atmosphere mostly follows along, with small differences of usually only 1½ to 3 percent, called wind, moving in all directions. 10 to 15% we call typhoons and hurricanes and above 20% are tornadoes.
Strip the atmosphere for a moment, eliminating wind, and rise one thousand feet above the surface. Remain stationary as Earth moves underneath you a good deal faster than a commercial jet. If you wait long enough, the same spot will pass underneath again in twenty four hours.
You are on the side of the sun, its light illuminating the surface for you to see. Turn and look at it; as you wait the rest of the day then night, and part of the following day for the spot to pass below you again, where does the sun go?
Nowhere; you are stationary and so is the sun. Well, you're not really stationary, you're following Earth's orbit around the sun, revolving along with it, but the sun looks identical twenty four hours later.
If the sun has not moved, what time was it and what time is it now?
Restore the atmosphere after returning to the surface, and shadows begin to move again. Time resumes its march, the illusion it creates once again in effect. Remember this the next time you hear someone say, or believe you have, run out of time.
