Why the ‘Chicken’ comes before the ‘Egg’!

March 6, 2015

I am proposing a NEW Model of Reality! Let’s talk about how I (we) live our lives on this planet. Let’s think about how we all make our decisions in our global marketplace. If we ‘fry’ up all the eggs on our planet today (say for breakfast), then what is our ongoing problem? Don’t we need the whole ‘chicken’ for the production of new ‘eggs’? How can ‘eggs’ emerge without there first being a CHICKEN? The chicken and egg conundrum has been part of philosophy for most of our history. The entire theory of macro-evolution is based upon the idea of a ‘past’ and the idea that the ‘part’ comes before the ‘whole’. Let’s explore what is reality and why this education (called Macro-evolution) is mostly deception (fanciful imagination)! Follow the logic!

If NOW (this moment) is reality, then the Chicken comes prior to the egg! How else can we get eggs (right now) if the whole chicken is not present (assuming all existing eggs have been consumed)?

What is ‘time’ (in reality)? Why is the concept of ‘past’ really a NOW memory (and NOT a ‘thing’ which exists independently) ! Reality is always a NOW experience from birth to death! Time emerges as a concept to create ‘order’ and ‘regularity’!

Our Western science likes to propose that the ‘past’ is real (it exists) and that human beings have evolved from the part to the whole (inorganic matter to a living cell). Science also proposes that conscious life emerged from non-life (contrary to all our experience on this planet). Is any of this reality as we live it? Has mankind experienced millions and billions of years on this planet? Is any of this reality or is it myth? Let’s think about the concept of ‘time’ and the ‘past’. If ‘time’ is a concept of CONSCIOUSNESS…and consciousness started with civilized man (say the Sumerian or Egyptian civilization) around 4000 B.C. then would not ‘time’ start with a conscious decision derived from conscious man? What meaning would ‘time’ and the ‘past’ have if there were no CONSCIOUS beings on the planet to create the idea of ‘time’? Think about this!

As we move in space (our earth spins and revolves) seasons change! Time emerges from this change (as an idea)! Time was probably invented by the Sumerians and/or the Egyptians to create order and regularity! Time (for conscious human beings) is always a NOW experience! There is no ‘past’ or ‘future’ (other than as memories and expectations within the now moment)!

First of all, I (we) live our lives continually in the NOW moment (as we think and act). Life is lived as ‘successive moments of now’ (always). In reality there is no such thing as the PAST (other than as a memory within the now). Think about this! The idea of a PAST is an illusion/deception! In reality, we always live our lives in the PRESENT moment (also called ‘today’, or ‘now’). So what is this idea of a PAST (why this hangup)? This idea really emerges from our NOW memories. It is my MEMORY (within each moment of NOW) in which a PAST is visualized (and conceptualized). In reality, however, I live my life in the NOW (continually) but I also have a memory within the ‘now’ which produces the idea of a PAST. Our education on the concept of TIME is also mostly a deception. Let’s think about this concept that we call TIME! Why are concepts like ‘past’ and ‘future’ deceptions within our subjective CONSCIOUSNESS!

Pablo recognizes that art is observed and internalized by people in the present (whether the art was produced in B.C. or A.D.)! Past/Future is mostly meaningless as we contemplate a work of ‘art’!

The idea of ‘time’ emerged from watching the movements of our planet (and our bodies) in relation to outer objects (like stars and our Sun). In other words, MOTION gives us a conception (illusion) of TIME. Motion, however, is NOT ‘time’. Motion is motion and all is relative to other objects as I move within space/time. I would conclude (deduce) that there is MOTION from observing the Sun passing over the horizon from east to west. I then ‘invent’ (subsequently) the idea of TIME from this motion. Later I can call this ‘motion’ (internalized as ‘time’) by the name DAY. Day 1, day 2, day 3, etc. So what is TIME in reality? In reality, I would suggest that ‘time’ is merely an illusion (or conception) produced from the concept of ‘motion’!  Units of ‘motion’ allow me to conceptualize ‘change’…and this ‘change’ can be conceptualized as TIME. In reality, however, there is NO SUCH THING as ‘time’ within our outer Universe (there is no clock out in space). Time, in reality, is totally internal and totally within my/your CONSCIOUSNESS! What does this mean for us as we LIVE our lives on this planet? Let’s explore!

Motion creates the ‘illusion’ of time! Time, however, is imaginary (an internal concept)! Time is within our Consciousness (while in motion)! Time is not some ‘thing’ which we can discover scientifically! There is no ‘thingness’ to this concept called ‘time’!

My ‘motion’ (with earth’s spin and earth’s revolution) creates the illusion of ‘time’! Motion and Time are not the same, however! Time derives from my Consciousness (in the now) whereas Motion is outside my Consciousness! Note the difference!

What this means is that there is really ‘no’ PAST (or future) and there is ‘no’ such ‘thing’ as TIME (existing within our outer Universe). In reality, I (you) live our lives as ‘successive’ moments of NOW (always)…from morning until the next morning and from day-to-day! The idea of a YESTERDAY or a PAST is really a deception of our conscious MIND! We live our lives in the NOW and/or the PRESENT MOMENT and/or TODAY…ALWAYS. Think about this reality! We experience life as successive moments of ‘today’ (always)! Why live in a ‘past’ memory or a ‘future’ expectation…when I/you can live in the immediate NOW? Facebook (and all global social media) provides us with this NOW experience!

Does George really believe the above? I doubt it! What is the ‘immediate’ future…but a NOW expectation? What is the ‘recent’ past…but a NOW memory? I am surprised at this philosophy of George Carlin! But most people seem to think in this manner! How can we grow as a family of people if we ignore the NOW?

Our lives are like the concept of ‘real-time’! Today, we witness our ability to communicate in REAL-TIME…24/7. We can communicate using our Smart Phones from New York to Tokyo, from San Francisco to London, or from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Our speed of light communication (via our electro-magnetic spectrum) is equivalent to living in the NOW continually (bodily and also consciously)! The concept called REAL-TIME is similar to NOW TIME! Our world is now a world of real-time and global (instantaneous) communication! Facebook is one example of people communicating in the NOW (globally)! We now need a new model of thinking going forward!

NOW is always the ‘time’ (within our Consciousness)! We live our lives in the NOW (continually) assuming one is aware and conscious!

As I type this missive I am typing continuously in the Now Moment. When I think about a prior moment, I always THINK in the Now Moment (about the prior moment). There is no ‘past’ or ‘future’ within our Now Consciousness! Consciousness is always an experience of the Now…the Present Moment…or the Today Moment! TIME (past and future) has been a deception of our MINDS (until now). Life is lived in the present, now, or today (always and continually)! When we trade, invest, lend, borrow, or make monetary decisions we do so in the present. When I communicate (via Facebook) with relatives in Sweden, I do so in the now moment! Who can live in the ‘past’ or the ‘future’ in today’s global internet society?

From birth to death human beings live (consciously) in the Now Moment (always)! Give this some reflection! Consciousness is not a ‘thing’! Consciousness is a Now Experience (continually)! I love the reality of communicating (globally) in the now! Personally, the ‘past’ and the ‘future’ are meaningless concepts!

People come before Money and the Chicken comes before the egg (for those who live in the now). People invent Money to solve the riddle of Value. The Chicken comes prior to the egg (assuming we desire additional eggs to consume in the now). Since my birth in 1943, I have lived my life continually in the NOW (I am now aware of this reality). That which I call my PAST is really nothing but a subjective visualization of a prior event (a memory). The prior event was a Now Event at the moment it was experienced. My memory of a prior event is a Now Experience (always). Who can escape the Now Moment? Who can Live (bodily) in the Past? Who can live (bodily) in the Future? I would suggest NO ONE! If I live in the present moment (continually), then I would suggest that you do likewise! Think about the reality of HOW we LIVE our LIVES (consciously and continually)!

These words of Abe reflect his thinking as of a moment in his now (1864). His view of a ‘future’ equality will never arrive, however (given his thinking). Reality is always an experience within the now moment. In 2015 (151 years after Abe’s words) we still don’t experience ‘equality’…as many THINK it will arrive…at some future point! This type of illusionary thinking is ‘never-ending’! We need to think of ‘equality’ as a NOW event!

To conclude this missive, I would suggest that the Chicken does really come prior to the egg (for those who live in the NOW). People come prior to Money (when we think about its origin). Today, we need to view our World as a ‘whole’ entity (the entire planet). The ‘part’ (a single nation/state) does not encompass the Whole (our planet). We need to SEE our planet as the home for ALL its 7 billion inhabitants (one family). Natural Resources must now be shared (globally)! People must come prior to Money and Material objects! Consciousness must be viewed as prior to the body/brain! I/you are not our body/brain and I would suggest that consciousness (the now) comes prior to brain activity! We need a new model going forward which focuses on living in the NOW!

My brain (neurons and synapses) are activated by prior ‘consciousness’! What is ‘consciousness’? Consciousness is a metaphysical experience within the NOW! Brain activity depends upon consciousness (not the other way around)! Science needs to rethink their outdated/historical model!

We now need a NEW SYSTEM or MODEL for our planet with new principles and new conceptions of reality! What is now emerging is a real-time marketplace for everyone! Reality is always NOW and Successive Moments of Now! Historical Capitalism is mostly over! The ‘time value of money’ is mostly over! The Keynesian Model of economic reality is mostly over! The concepts of a ‘past’ and a ‘future’ is mostly over! Give these concepts some reflection at your leisure. Think in terms of living in the NOW! Enjoy! I am:

P.S. The following links may help you with understanding the ‘now’ better. I, personally, am not an atheist but some atheists seem to better understand reality than many believers:
