Stranger than fiction..

Facts of life. Sometimes our imagination throws up scenarios that are entirely plausible..and scary!!.
Like a life altering rickshaw ride or the train journey of a lifetime.
Tibetians have an interesting theory. They say that to think of something..anything is to give it substance. Giving it substance admits the possibility of it occurring.
Admitting the possibility of the existence of said thought is to accept that its probable.
Just think about it. Imagine if we could view all possibilities, everything that “could have been”.
When u flip a coin, it could land on either side. Equal chance. And at that moment there’s a split. A world where the coin showed heads, and one where tails came up.
Just pause for a moment and consider. what if everything u ever wanted, existed somewhere. In some plane of existence there’s a version of you that has everything going for you.
On the other hand, think again. What if our world was a sort of punishment for all sins. If we be ‘good lil people’, our consciousness will move on to another plane.
Again, lets think about “Sin” and mastery of our Desires. What constitutes Sin? Giving in to our desires? Or restraining them?
What leads to desires? “Wanting”. What is “Wanting”? It’s the product of mental activity. An envisionment. A muse. A thought. Something we think of.
I paraphrase myself.
Tibetans say that to think of something..anything is to give it substance. Giving it substance admits the possibility of it occurring.
Admitting the possibility of the existence of said thought is to accept that its probable.
So maybe “thinking” isn’t a Sin. And maybe “wanting” isn’t either. And “wanting” is “Desire”.
So is “desire” really a Sin?

Einstein gave the theory of a 4th dimension. “TIME”. He gave the theory of “Frame of reference”. An observational frame of reference, often referred to as a physical frame of reference, a frame of reference, or simply a frame, is a physical concept related to an observer and the observer’s state of motion. We adopt the view expressed by Kumar and Barve: an observational frame of reference is characterized only by its state of motion. However, there is lack of unanimity on this point. In special relativity, the distinction is sometimes made between an observer and a frame.
In simple words, frame of reference is what the observer sees with respect to movement of something.
Newton gave an example :
Suppose that you own two clocks, which both tick at exactly the same rate. You synchronize them so that they both display exactly the same time. The two clocks are now separated and one clock is on a fast moving train, traveling at constant velocity towards the other. According to Newton, these two clocks will still tick at the same rate and will both show the same time. Newton says that the rate of time as measured in one frame of reference should be the same as the rate of time in another. That is, there exists a “universal” time and all other times in all other frames of reference will run at the same rate as this universal time irrespective of their position and velocity.

Just imagine this: According to Frame of Reference, “Times in all other frames of reference will run at the same rate as this universal time irrespective of their position”.
If there *is* another universe with our stereotypes, the “time” will obviously be same, irrespective of their position. Now suppose I murder someone at 4 30pm on 27th February, 2010. According to “Law of Frame of reference”, an observational frame of reference is characterized only by its state of motion. My state of motion being the murder. The frame of reference at that instant is frozen forever. Now my stereotype (let’s call her X) does not commit murder at 4 30pm because she’s busy getting the chewing gum out of her shoe, does that mean I’m still guilty?
Let’s go a step further. Suppose she kills the person at 4 30 while I’m busy putting my iPod on charging, would I be condemned for nothing?
That leads me to another question.
Is this why bad things happen to us from time to time? As a consequence (read more likely a punishment) of what our stereotype/pseudo “us” did in one frame of reference. Since time is “universal”, does it imply that me and X are actually linked? Just like the two watches that were synchronized on that train.

The three dimensions of the universe are:
1. Length
2. Width
3. Height/Depth.
Fact#: These dimensions can be altered.
The understanding of three-dimensional space in humans is thought to be learned during infancy using unconscious inference, and is closely related to hand-eye coordination. The visual ability to perceive the world in three dimensions is called depth perception.
Now, Einstein added “Time” to the dimensions. It is also learned during infancy with reference to acknowledging “mornings” and “evenings”. An infant sleeps at night because he knows it’s night.
If X alters time and does not kill, I wouldn’t probably face the punishment for the crime! If I could go back and rectify each mistake I made, X would not have to bear the repercussions of my wrong doings. We could perhaps alter time and move much ahead in life.
What if it is “time” that brings us to make mistakes in the first place? What if punishment is the only way to redemption?..Weird questions that come to you when you’re sitting in a comfy bean bag, sipping a cuppa (coffee caffeine, whatever), just pondering ‘pon over life. And what if this coffee, that destroys our brain cells by the minute is actually a punishment of our stereotypic version who’s committed a sin? Look on the other side. What is this cuppa, is actually a reward?
You never know (:
