In Reply to: What does time move through, or is it consciousness that is moving? posted by Spencer on Sunday, November 10, 2002 at 19:05:00 :
: ... or is the movement an illusion of consciousness while time and consciousness are both actually still?
Time is a measurement of relative movement.
Time itself doesn't move at all.
You might ask 'what is m ovement?' which Zeno did for years.
No one could answer him and he went back to the hills.
Movement itself refers to relationships between fundamental foces, such as gravity and weak nuclear force.
Any position of anything, is only relative to something else's position. since Einstein published his papers on realtivity, we have speoken about space-time, to allow for this relative view.
Consciousness is the ability of a system to have an internal model of itself and it's universe.
Sensation and feelin are feed-back meachanisms to correct a system's action re: the outside world and itself.
