Question of time

Some time later in the future
near the end of time
a parallel universe devoid of any semblance
of reality was found in the end not to be real
Or at least
it was all...
extremely unclear.

We had learned to say anything.
We called things the opposite of what they were.
Time was measured by progress but things were deteriorating so rapidly that one felt time was going backwards.
We owned neither the world nor time.
We know that now.

Space and time
some quantum gravity theorists say
are most likely an illusion.
The philosopher Augustine famously argued
17,000 years ago that space and time are creatures of insistance and the universe,
born with it
not seperately standing features of eternity.

"That's not the way the world really works anymore,"
the arrogant official argued.
"We're an empire now, and when we act we create our own reality.
And while you are studying that reality
judiciously as you will
we will act again
creating other new realities which you can study too
and that's how things will work out.
We're history's actors and you
all of you
will be left to just study what we're doing.
People don't have the right or ability to define for themselves what's true."

He sees the future as something even more far-reaching.
"You have a choice.
You can either create your own future
or you can become the victim of a future that someone else creates for you.
By seizing the transformation opportunities we offer
you are seizing the opportunity to create your own future."

We don't have time today to cover simultaneousness
but we will be discussing wormholes
tunnels through space connecting distant points travelling in time
holes called Einstein-Rosen bridges and how gravity would slam them shut.
When we went in one all we could hear was raging
crashing
thudding
and smashing from the flooded ruins of a campsite.
Even this inordinately frightening experience
accurately predicted by the Man Above
was still frighteningly unclear.
