26. Arrow Of Time

It was strange walking along looking at four of ME and knowing one of them was Stan. As I looked down on MY cape the Lite was reminding ME that once we returned to LiteWorld with our small army of humans, this current ensemble would be duplicated 50 times. In essence the Lite Dance would produce 50 replicas of ME with similar if not identical capabilities. I read the words on the Lite Papr covering and wondered what the future had in store for ME , the army of humans and the Lite at the end of this journey.

Could I predict the future knowing what had transpired to this point? The Lite had told me the journey was essential for the continued existence of this race of humans on this planet. The Lite said he was in existence at the beginning and the truth of the past must be told to this race in order to secure their future. But at the same time the Lite said the existence of the past had no linear relationship to their future. What did he mean by that?

The Lite was forming words on the Lite Papr covering MY cape and I had a feeling this was going to be a long answer to MY question. “You are correct”, the Lite wrote,” I am going to explain the Arrow of Time concept to you.”….. I thought, “will this give me the answer to the reason for our journey?” The Lite formed these two words in large letters…..”Yes and No….but let me continue.”

“Psychological time is, in part, the cataloguing of ever increasing items of memory from continuous changes in perception. In other words, things we remember make up the past, while the future consists of those events that cannot be remembered.”  I looked at MY cape and the Lite had stopped. “Is that it?” I thought. “No, I wanted to make sure you had time to think about this first line as you need to think about this as I finishing explaining the important part of this concept.” I thought….”yes, I understand…. please continue.”

“The consistent increases in memory volume creates one mental arrow of time. Another mental arrow of time arises because one has the sense that one’s perception is a continuous movement from the known past to the unknown future. In essence, we project the psychological past which includes desires, dreams and hopes into the future painting the same picture as the past. When this process is used…..little or no change will occur.”

I thought for a few moments,…….  “And this is the reason for the journey? I don’t understand.” The Lite took some time to answer ME. I looked down at MY cape expecting to see something profound. The Lite  printed out the following…..” This IS the reason… and YOU will understand in time……YOU will understand in time.”

The four of us kept walking.
