is it like the tramalfadorians (spelling?) from slaughterhouse five? They
see in four dimensions. If they saw me for example, they will see me as i
was, is and will be.

• Luke, i guess im not succeeding in being clear .. let me try again ... in physics there is the idea of probability ... that is you cant simultaneously

Luke,

i guess im not succeeding in being clear .. let me try again ... in physics
there is the idea of probability ... that is you cant simultaneously
determine the location and speed of something ... so think of a line that is
of infinite length ... it is absolutely straight for essentially all of its
length, except for one location which represents the present ... at this
location you have a wave whose amplitude is distributed over a short
distance .. at the precise location the amplitude is high and then lessens
to either side ... it is like a little bulge in the line ... i see this as
the same as a photon of light which can be both a wave and a particle at the
same time ... so you as Luke are on your time line ... you exist in only one
location which is the present and you flow along the time line from the past
to the future ... now, the future is not fixed ... the choices that you make
in the present can change the direction of the line ...

that is what im getting at in saying the table is the present display on its
time line ... it does not exist in the past (to the left on the line) but we
are aware of where it was since the line leads to that empty space
(non-tree) in the forest ... and it does not exist in the future (to the
right on the line) ... the future or direction of the line is dependent upon
what is done today ... if we throw it in the fire, the direction is to
ashes, and if we turn it into a chair then the direction of the time line
will lead to that empty space amongst the living room furniture ...

have fun (but watch where you send your line) ...

• i see i see. Here s a situation that my friends and I discuss alot (because they like physics): A Cat is in a box. Once the box is opened a gas is released

i see i see.

Here's a situation that my friends and I discuss alot (because they
like physics):
A Cat is in a box. Once the box is opened a gas is released and the
cat dies. So, the cat in the closed box is both alive and dead.

Yep, that's it.

• Luke, nope ... the cats dead ... definitely dead ... i heard that story before ... so i went out and found the box ... and opened it ... and i can tell you

Luke,

nope ... the cats dead ... definitely dead ... i heard that story before ...
so i went out and found the box ... and opened it ... and i can tell you
truthfully ... THE CATS DEAD ... i killed the cat ... you can inform your
friends that the story is over, unless they want to do it on TNN ...

have fun (but dont tell the cat) ...
