We have five senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. So what about our sixth sense?A sixth sense is nothing more than the ability of the subconscious mind to analyze data in a fraction of a second which would otherwise take the conscious mind much longer than the situation allows for. It’s the same as when you for no reason at all suspect someone of having done something without being able to put a finger on it, but your subconscious having all the time in the world knows better.
Just like the senses, we have dimensions; there are said to be three dimensions (3D), which are: length, width and height. So what about the fourth one? The fourth one is time. We cannot say that there is no such thing as sixth sense, because there are incidents where we can feel having one…similarly, we cannot say that time couldn’t be a fourth dimension, there are various theories and proofs that support it.
According to me, imagination could be a reality, but reality could never be an imagination.
In 1895, in his novel The Time Machine, H. G. Wells wrote, “There is no difference between time and any of the three dimensions of space except that our consciousness moves along it”, and that “any real body must have extension in four directions: it must have Length, Breadth, Thickness, and Duration”.
Marcel Proust, in his novel Swann’s Way (published 1913), describes the village church of his childhood’s Combray as “a building which occupied, so to speak, four dimensions of space—the name of the fourth being Time”.
At first glance, nothing seems too odd about this old black and white photo which turned up on the Virtual Museum of Canada website. It was said to be of the early 1940s reopening of South Fork Bridge in Gold Bridge, British Colombia. On closer inspection, one person from the crowd appears to be out of place with modern urban clothing, complete with shades and logo-emblazoned top. It was also billed as being proof of time travel, as surely no one from that era would have been dressed like that.
The statue, ‘Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant’ is in The J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California. Many say, ‘It depicts an astonishing object which bears a striking resemblance with a modern laptop or some hand-held device.’ The gallery’s own description is much more modest, describing it as a ‘shallow chest’. But a chest so shallow, for what? For keeping the jewelry I guess…
The story of Rudolph Fentz was for many decades considered to be an unsolved mystery, as well as a case of possible time travel. According to the story, in June 1950 a man suddenly appeared in the center of New York City’s Times Square, as if from out of the blue. He was wearing old-fashioned clothes that had gone out of fashion decades ago. Glancing about himself, a look first of astonishment and then of panic flashed across his face. He began to sprint forward, and was then struck down and killed by a car.
When police examined the man, they found nineteenth-century money in his pockets as well as business cards identifying him as Rudolph Fentz. But they couldn’t locate records of a man named Fentz anywhere until they came across the old widow of a Rudolph Fentz Jr. The widow told them that her father-in-law, Rudolph Fentz Sr., had disappeared one day without a trace in 1876. Intriguingly, the address of her father-in-law matched the address on the mysterious stranger’s business cards. So the police were left with an enigma. Rudolph Fentz appeared to have vanished in 1876, only to reappear in 1950. Had he somehow fallen into a time-hole that had sucked him seventy-four years through time?
I would like to share with you a conversation from the film ‘LUCY’. When Lucy reaches a high level of brain usage, she has this discussion:
Professor Norman: But if humans are not the unit of measure, and the world isn’t governed by mathematical laws, what governs all that?
Lucy: Film a car speeding down the road. Speed up the image infinitely, then the car disappears. So what proof do we have of its existence? Time gives legitimacy to its existence. Time is the only true unit of measure. It gives proof to the existence of matter. Without time, we don’t exist.
Einstein’s theory of special relativity says that time slows down or speeds up depending on how fast you move relative to something else. Approaching the speed of light, a person inside a spaceship would age much slower than his twin at home. Also, under Einstein’s theory of general relativity, gravity can bend time.
Both the general and special relativity theories have been proven with GPS satellite technology that has very accurate timepieces on board. The effects of gravity, as well as the satellites’ increased speed above the Earth relative to observers on the ground, make the unadjusted clock gain 38 microseconds a day. (Engineers make calibrations to account for the difference.)
In a sense, this effect, called time dilation, means astronauts are time travelers, as they return to Earth very, very slightly younger than their identical twins that remain on the planet.
There are so many examples of time travel, dilation, machine and whatnot. But not everything is proven yet. Some even suggest that dreams are a sort of time loop, the reason why we have dejavu in the first place, and I believe that theory.
Even I feel the time as a dimension you know, while thinking back about the bad and the good times of my childhood days, or when in a boring lecture, I feel the time as if it has stopped…on the other hand, while watching movies and having fun with my friends and family, the time slips by really fast. When I am having a bad time I do tend to feel its presence and I never want my good times to end. Time is everywhere. Even a story starts with, Once upon a time…
Time is what defines us and time is something which can also destroy us, it is upon us to use this time we have got wisely. Do not betray your instinct…rather, sixth sense, when it tells you to utilize the time you have got.
