I am immortal.

You too.

Immortal — pexels-koolshooters-8513093

In previous texts, “Would the Universe Exist without Us?” and “Can memory Fits in the Brain”, I have included excerpts from scientists and philosophers who deal with the existence of time in other dimensions, other Branas or Multiverses.

I have now read an article “The Illusion of Time”, about the book “The Order of Time”, by theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli.

I haven’t read the book yet, I hope to read it; however the article is very good and enlightening, and I agree with the writer’s question.

In another post, “It wasn’t the apple”, I explained why I don’t believe that “this” as I apparently see and feel myself and as am seen, is not my real SELF, that I must be the hologram of a possible SELF in another dimension.

At that moment, it was just an intuition, a question to myself. Out of curiosity, I consulted the indefectible Google and read some answers:

· Creation — a hologram at the base or a matrix[1][2]

· Some physicists believe we’re living in a giant hologram — and it’s not that far-fetched[3]

· What if you lived inside a hologram? [4]

I believe, with the reservations of “doubtism”[1], that there really is something real about us that does not belong to the dimension of time, certainly not just to the four dimensions; a soul that may not be exactly what, while alive, it IS and thinks it is, but that remains, belonging to a much larger envelope, also of indefinite and shifting “skin”, in what we call Branas, Parallel Universes or Multiverses.

You don’t need physics or high math to think; it’s just philosophizing without delusions, as thought,

Socrates, of which I highlight[2],

· Plato,

· Aristotele of which I highlight[3]

· Anaximander, of which I highlight[4]

Is that you can really think?

Religions have no doubts; they say what to think to their believers who, with pleasure, without effort, question nothing.

What do you think about it, do you think that, in this sense or another, maybe before born, we lived or will live somewhere before or after death?

[1] “Doubtfultist” is a “religion” where all of us doubt everything including our certainties. Descartes in a certain way was a Doubtist as well: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evil_demon

[2] Socrates was convinced that our souls — where virtues and vices are found — are vastly more important to our lives than our bodies or external circumstances. The quality of our souls determines the character of our lives, for better or for worse, much more than whether we are healthy or sick, or rich or poor.

[3] His dialogue Eudemus, for example, reflects the Platonic view of the soul as imprisoned in the body and as capable of a happier life only when the body has been left behind. According to Aristotle, the dead are more blessed and happier than the living, and to die is to return to one’s real home.

[4] Anaximander was an early proponent of science and tried to observe and explain different aspects of the universe, with a particular interest in its origins, claiming that nature is ruled by laws, just like human societies, and anything that disturbs the balance of nature does not last long.
