world

This world as we know it is a constantly changing one. A dynamic one. But what is this world?
Recently i was talking about the space time continuim. Yes, this world of ours is just a special function of space, time, and velocity. i included velocity as it is one constraint that includes matter or mass in a superficial manner atleast. with my limited knowledge i could only think of a 3-dimensional continium. But actually the dimensions to this world is close to infinity if not infinity itself. That is the reason why we can't explain certain phenomenon that occour around us. We term the unexplainable as a miracle.

This inablity of ours is our limiting factor. That is why God is not a person among us. Our perception has its limits. Mine is just 3 dimensional so to speak. Of course there are other dimensions that i can think of, or rather slowly the dimensions will reveal itself to me. I guess that state is what sages tried to achieve or might have achieved.

Its a journey of a life time to understand this world. But modern man need more than one life time to understand his world. The reason quite simply is that our perception has become numb due to the 4 walls that surround our mind. The walls are actually not 4 in number but is many fold. It includes our destiny, the prominence we give to our careers, family, and above everything, the greens(money). Another irony is that the very dimension of our world itself contribute to our numbness. Time for instance. We are governed by time, thereby it limits our perception. Velocity as we know is a physical limit we have been trying to conquer by attempts at land speed records and Mach counts. But we can't. Atleast with what we have now, we can't.

This exactly is what Einstien termed as the physical barrier for time travel. Velocity....

So is time travel necessary to understand this world. Maybe it is so. But as far as i feel physical time travel is not at all required. The key is surely our mind. Just got to break it free from the shackles of the limiting factors. Hopefully i might be able to do so. But first thing's first. Let me find out what the barriers are

The barriers are ourselves and our own perceptions about this world and the life we live and the society that we are part of. I feel that society is the most important factor that decides the fate of most of us......but is it possible for the society to bind us by these imaginary chains ??? My answer is no.....we have to grow beyond the limits held by this partiarchichal society of ours... we need freedom..we have to achieve...either by revolution or by constant pursuit of the desired goal....
