Love & Time

Filed under: Uncategorized — drtone @ 9:33 am

Time is a funny thing. I’ve been reading The Dancing Wu Li Masters, which is about particle physics up to 1978. That was a long time ago, and physics has apparently gone through a great shift since then. Still, I’m pretty sure that some of the material in the book is still accepted stuff. Space, time, matter, and energy are all mixed up, mostly because of the labels we put on things. There’s something out there, and when we cut it up into time and space and matter and energy, we’ve created an illusion that is consistent up to a point. Then it breaks down, and we go looking through the rubble or our ideas and perceptions as if there’s going to be some kind of Truth or Pattern there.

It’s not simply that no one can sustain the energy of love over time. It’s that it’s not in time at all. There’s the story of a love, meeting a person, getting to know him or her, having sex, bickering, etc. That’s the story. The reality is something else altogether.
