In which form had the atoms of the chair I’m sitting on existed a billion years ago? Where will the atoms of my body be and how will they look like two eons from now? What happened throughout the previous centuries on that very point of space where I brush my teeth every morning?

 

... on the first floor of my flat in Budapest, in a sober state of mind, I was hit by a notion of how I would experience the 4th dimension. I imagined it as if everything happened at the same time: in a certain point of space, the forms have ever existed, the ones are existing right now, and those would ever exist in the future are all presented, transparently overlap and percolate through one another. Looking out the window and under the legs of a Triceratops I see dogcarts steering their way among eskimo huts, I can hear the crunching noise caused by an elephant’s feet on the snow and on primeval bone remains from the 7th millenia BC, as well as the roaring wind on the Mongolian steppe from the 7th century AC, and at the same time, I can smell the waves of a Triassic aged ocean and see how the wind sweeps the sand into the eyes of Thomas Mann. Similarly to the hologram, all point of space are interconnected and contain information about the whole. Thought tends to create fixed structures in the mind, which can make dynamic entities seem to be static. We know upon reflection that all manifest objects are in a state of constant flux and change. There is really no such thing as a thing; all objects are dynamic processes rather than static forms. To put it crudely, one could say that nouns do not really exist, only verbs exist.
