One who intends to leave others better off for his having existed.

Does time exist independently of human consciousness?

Were you to board a spaceship,


 head out from earth at 99.999999 percent of light speed,


 travel for six months and then head back home at the same speed,


 your motion would slow your clock


 relative to those that remain stationary on Earth,


 so that you’d be one year older upon your return,


 while everyone on Earth would have aged about 7,000 years.


 


Brian Greene


Can reality not be


or be more than you think?


 


If just under the speed of light travel slows time


and an hour can be experienced in a minute


can a minute be lived in an hour?


 


Here we are and it is now


 


Further than that, all human knowledge is moonshine


 


H L Mencken


Is everything just right?
