To Travel Through Time I Think We Need To Exit Our Own 3D Universe And Enter 4D Universe.

Remember this blog post “In A Haste, My Mind Ran Wild, And Aha, Time Is A Cup Of Tea!” I’d written in December of 2017 in regards to Time?  If you’ve not read it, you can check it out through the link above.  Basically, in the last blog post, I used the cup of tea metaphor to explain how I think time could be reverted to allow time travel into the past.  This blog post will also be talking about time travel!

In the last blog post, I mentioned how you could imagine yourself escaping a cup of tea to travel back into time, I will try to convince you even more that it’s possible to do time travel in this blog post by using the 4th dimension.  In the video right after the break, Carl Sagan explains how a shadow of an object in the 4D universe can be represented by a 3D tesseract.

Common sense tells us that 3D objects can project 2D shadows onto a 2D surface.  Imagine what if you’re a 2D being, how such a 3D shadow would look like to you?  Since we’re 3D beings, it’s easy for us to imagine how 2D beings would feel about 3D shadows.  With this in mind, it’s obvious that we also know how difficult for us to imagine, if not impossible, how 4th-dimensional objects would form.  Thus, it’s common sense for us to imagine up the shadows of 4th-dimensional objects to allow us to imagine up the forms of the 4th-dimensional objects.

In the video above, Carl Sagan suggests that 2D beings could experience 3D space and time by flying upward.  Remember, 2D beings cannot jump up or fly upward because the up direction is a space within a 3D world.  With space comes time!  If we can imagine somehow a 2D being could experience time and space of 3D being, then we can also imagine how a 3D being like us could also experience the 4D space and time.

In my other blog post, I mentioned that in order for a person to escape time and space he or she needs to get out of her cup of tea and find another cup of tea with the same temperature and the right mixture of the same brand of tea of a time earlier to experience a time travel back to the past.  Since it’s not the same cup of tea that is necessary for a person to experience the exact events of the past as the requirements are not strict in regards to the container of the tea (i.e., the teacup).  The actual strict requirement is probably the mixture of the correct tea brand, temperature, and other ingredients that reside in a teacup.  This means you could kill your grandfather in a cup of tea and rematerialize yourself in another cup of tea without being dead.  How?  As long the next cup of tea you jump back into got the right ingredients and condition that would form the right mixture of the cup of tea that you had jumped out earlier — this would allow you to get back to the present and still be able to survive even though your grandfather got killed by you when you traveled back into time.

Kind of confusing, but just imagine each presence could be recreated by a universe of parallel space and time.  Here comes the exciting part of how I correlate the Carl Sagan’s video above to what I’m talking about.  So, in order for you to jump out of this godly cup of tea, you have to exit your 3D universe right?  In my opinion, the space and time of the godly cup of tea, godly fabric, could be formed by the right mixture of godly ingredients (e.g., temperature, tea brand, milk, sugar).  Each cup of tea got its own fabric of space and time, thus each cup of tea got its own dimensional preference.  With correct ingredients, one could imagine such a cup of tea could be formed many times over — allowing the correct dimensional universe to be formed many times over.  In our case, we could see a parallel world with three dimensions without a doubt if you think my deduction is correct in regards to time and space in a godly cup of tea.

As Carl Sagan speaks how 2D being got kick flying upward into a 3D universe in the video, my mind tells me that if a 4D being kicks me flying upward into a 4D universe I could find the right cup of tea to jump back into to revisit the past or even the future.  After thinking about this, I guess some people in the past — who believed destiny could have been written down before time — could be correct.  How?  The future could have been formed over and over again in the same exact manner or result in various manners in various parallel universes (i.e., in various cups of tea) according to my deduction in regards to time and space.  So, our past could have been formed in this way in various parallel universes.  Nonetheless, for a 3D being like us to witness another parallel universe I think we have to exit our own 3D universe and materialize in the 4D universe.  Only in the 4D universe that wraps over our 3D universe, we can then witness the past the present and the future all at the same time if we like.






When It Starts To Crack (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!

Something is so shiny and translucent,
brittling to the point of shattering,
yet holding together so tightly, so glittery,
brightly so in creating some reflections,
sometimes it rather lets things to shine through,
uncompromisingly proving to be glittery still,
a ceiling of this could not be shattered,
hanging too tightly together as tough as steels,
as the sunlight slips through the silky mass,
splashing a golden surface among the shadows,
though it is glittery and slippery and shatter-easy,
it’s a unit of strength which stands among the giants,
only when the components within the unit show cracks,
it is when the ugliness begins to grow onto the surface,
breaking away what once was gravity defying act,
which had held the impossible together,
thus the slippery slope begins the sliding path,
down back to earth where worms squirm in all directions,
trying to gnaw into the once smooth glittery surface,
more ugly cracks begin the madness,
pushing the sadness to a new level,
once a mirror, a glass to let sunlight through,
now it is lying, shattering on the damp, darken ground.

What Time Is It? (A poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!

Time’s like a river,
it flows through time,
endlessly it flows,
to nowhere nobody knows,
to what purpose nobody knows,
but it does flow since the dawn of age,
since then time has been stretching,
till now time has been stretching,
into the infinity time goes.

Here we are sitting and pondering,
since when we’ve heard of time,
since when a clock would churn,
since when time has winded down,
since when time has flown by,
since when we’ve ran out of time,
since when time isn’t so constant,
since when time weaved within space,
and since when space and time were related?

We’ve been believing a lie,
memory of time was long lost,
and yet here we are living in a lie,
believing time is current,
but it’s so ancient,
we know not when time was set,
yet here we are setting a date,
yet here we are setting a time,
yet here we are living a lie.

Nonetheless, we humans are bold,
living a lie to make time right,
not for righting a truth of time,
but to righting a time we live,
but to righting a time we flow with,
we’ve made up our own time device,
so we know why time is running out,
so we know when time is right,
for us to move forward in time.

A Prose On Why Idolizing Is Good

As I read an article on how “Nepal’s Largest Stone Buddha At 12,600 Feet” got built and then I read the comments, I couldn’t help but feel that people are repeating same old mantra and not thinking for themselves.  One comment suggests that instead of building such a statue, the money should go to the poor instead.  I totally understand the good intention of such a comment, but it’s a narrow minded thinking and missing the big picture altogether.  Of course, at Buddha’s time, he said you should not idolize him and focus on his teaching instead.  Nonetheless, we’re not living in a time in which his holiness is alive, and so it’s so misleading to think that a Buddhist tradition can carry on without idolizing him in a physical form through arts and sculptures.  After all, his teaching doesn’t come out of thin air.  Without the peaceful fanatics (not the violent ones of course) who idolizing him, I don’t think his teaching can be spread far and wide.  Although we all know moderation is best, but I don’t think the making/worshiping a Buddha statue is sinful.  A narrow minded person could seek out a path where he/she could choose to not remember and respect the Buddha himself through idolizing him, and he or she could pray and hope his holiness trace would disappear along with his peaceful teaching altogether.  Sure, it might not change the world in any way of shape or form if this to happen, but his teaching is one of the peaceful ways and to go without such a knowledge the world may be missing out on something really good.  Not everyone can inherit a strong self in moments of helplessness in everyday life, and so his holiness teaching could always lift such a spirit out of despair through such terrible times.  I think people should not spit out mantra as if they’re a saint themselves, because if you’re a Buddhist you should care not if someone else is idolizing him in a peaceful manner, and instead you should focus on his timeless teaching.  Somebody got money to make a statue of his holiness, it’s their business and not yours.  If you got money to help the poor, you could always do it yourself instead of preaching.  This idea can also be applied to Christianity and other peaceful religions.  I’m not recommending anyone to idolizing a cult’s figure and go crazy on normal folks, because the whole idea is to worship and idolize a peaceful deity and in this way peace can exist among our brethren and sistren.

Rules In Time (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!

Time comes and goes,
like waves in the open sea,
rigidity it seems to lack,
yet dare you to face it alone,
its will bends and shapes willingly,
thus it comes and goes easily.

Something sets in stones,
it’s to be outdated,
it’s to be obliterated by time,
thus rules matter less,
when things stretch overtime,
rules are meant to be bent by time.

History matters a lot,
not for its rich stories,
though it could be a great teacher,
a greater essence is what it got,
to prove that time matters more,
thus rules on stones are meant to be eroded.

Only when survival instincts kick in,
time would freeze in the moment,
allowing unbendable common sense,
to reign for the moment in time,
after the storm had settled,
time would move on in its own merry way.

To be like time is to be renewed again,
sometimes by force without knowing why,
sometimes by will by the wiser guys,
thus time should be realistic,
bringing changes after a storm,
to fight against time with stones would be futile.

Perhaps, The Real Universes Are Also No Man’s Sky

This June, No Man’s Sky will be released on the 21st of the month.  This is one of those games that I can’t wait to get my game on.  The game is about an almost infinite galaxies and planets that you can travel to and explore.  From what I’d heard the travel between planets and galaxies is seamless.  An open world where wonders and monsters await, and each trip can be randomly dangerous.  If not prepare ahead, your next trip in No Man’s Sky may be a trip to hell.

Enough about the game, because I want to focus on something else entirely in this blog post.  I mentioned No Man’s Sky, because the game is special and unique since it would almost indefinitely generate new instances of parts of the universe that you travel through in your spaceship.  This means game assets and whatnot are going to be randomly created all the time through an algorithm.  This makes me wonder perhaps our real universe is also infinite.

When we escaped the planet earth, we suddenly realized the surmise of round earth is true.  We see galaxies, but we can’t get there.  We can’t really see the edge of the universe, because a simplest, smallest distance between earth and another planet is already too huge.  Just imagine an ant craws across a hill, and this ant must have thought that the hill is a galaxy.  How would the ant know that there is a universe in which humans are aim to travel across, right?

Imagine the real universe is also being instantly generated indefinitely, thus us humans would probably never be able to see the real edge of the universe.  Because, the edge of the universe would also be expanded farther and farther with no end in sight.  What if there are multiple universes that would never allow one realm to travel to another, but these realms are so different and have infinite generated instances?  Imagine the laws of physics would be so different from one realm to another.

I think as human civilization gets bolder with space, one day we may do No Man’s Sky for real.  Right now I can’t wait to play No Man’s Sky on PC, but our human civilization can’t wait to escape this space region.  I think nuclear power and the likes are progress, but only if us humans can be civilized.  Such technologies can catapult us humans out of this space region and go interstellar.  Nonetheless, we may go extinct if we can’t be civilized among ourselves.
