  1. In fact, Einstein never proposed such a statement as a scientific thesis. Shortly before his death, while in Zurich, he learned of the death of his friend Michele Angelo Besso, and he wrote about it in a letter to his family, where he expressed his condolences:

    Besso left this strange world a little earlier than I did. It doesn't mean anything. People like us know that the distinction between past, present, and future is just a stubborn obsessive illusion.”

  2. I'm not sure if he said that, but it's possible that we're talking about four-dimensional space. In this space, time is the fourth dimension. The whole fate of a person is represented in this space as a line and, as it were, exists “simultaneously”. But this simultaneity exists only in our imagination, since we “see” all the time from the outside.

  3. When Michel Besso died in the spring of 1955, Einstein consoled his family and himself: “He left this strange world a little earlier than I did. It doesn't mean anything. For us, believing physicists, the differences between the past, present and future are just an illusion that we stubbornly cling to.”

    It is difficult to guess what exactly Einstein meant in these words of consolation, but now they are taken at face value and build different theories of the block universe, which of course can not be.

    In fact, there is matter and each point in the universe has its own present, so everything that is located at a sufficient distance from us is in the past, because we do not have the opportunity to be simultaneously at each point in space and all that we observe is the past of the universe.

    On the other hand, the future is inevitable, because it is a continuation of the present. The present becomes both the past and the future, the past because it has already happened, and the future because it cannot stop.

    Therefore, time must be understood as an inevitable change in the quantities taken in a limited amount.

    It is only necessary to assume that in each sufficiently large limited volume in its present (since we cannot be in each such limited volume at the same time), approximately the same change in quantities occurs, so the present is approximately the same at any point in the universe, wherever we are, and therefore the same past and the same future, in the sense that quantities

    Therefore, there is no difference from the point of view of these laws at what point in space and at what point in time we will be there, the future will always follow the present, and the present will always simultaneously move into the past and into the future.

    And only a specific ratio of quantities will determine what it will be in the future, but it will be, there is no doubt about it, because in this world nothing disappears anywhere and nothing appears from anywhere, but only some quantities pass into other quantities.

    This is the infinite world of the present.

    Just because someone left this world doesn't mean they didn't exist. There remains only the eternal question of the soul.

    But our souls are so closely intertwined in this world, about which Einstein said: “I am so merged with all living things that I do not care where in this endless stream someone's specific existence begins or ends… I'm just a tiny piece of nature…”

  4. Only a system of correspondences can exist. The correspondence is independent of time and space.
    The materialists thought that only matter could “be”. This misconception arose from such properties of matter as direct observability and measurability due to the low frequency of its changes.
    Time and its attributes-present, past, and future-exist only in the informational field of consciousness. Like space, time is entirely speculative. There are only time scales, and only because people have decided so.
    Matter changes, transforms, transforms. Therefore, it is also difficult to define the concept of “being” through it.
    Information changes even faster than matter, and information is the very essence of change.
    Invariably, there is only a correspondence of information and matter (theory and practice) in the present, in the past, and in the future. This is reflected in the immutability of the laws of physics. Although physicists modestly call this immutability an assumption or postulate. Without this postulate, it would be difficult for physicists to reason. And Einstein, probably, also proceeded from it in his reasoning, which is why he came to this conclusion.

  5. Sad, gentlemen, sad. I read all 100 responses and didn't find any correct ones. Why write if you don't know?

    In general, he had a lot of discussions on this topic, and this is not the best quote from them. I would have chosen another one: “God doesn't play roulette.” In general, he assumed that all events are deterministic. For example, we can use the current state (location, momentum, and so on) of certain atoms to predict their past state and predict the future, if we have enough computing power. That is, theoretically, we can learn the past and future from the present. Well, or the existence of the present already determines the future and the past. There are quite a lot of interesting conclusions, such as saving information and other things. Einstein often butted heads with the devotees of quantum mechanics on this topic. So far, the dispute has not been closed, and this is a huge layer of modern physics.

  6. Because phenomenologically, i.e. from the point of view of the observing consciousness, it is impossible to separate them. Let's say that I now imagine my future in the present, based on the experience of my past. Where am I at this moment?

    Physically, obviously, where he was. Phenomenologically, that is, consciously, I draw out the experience of the past in the present and, based on it and the present moment, try to imagine the future, which depends on where I was and where I am now. In this sense, all three points are the same.

  7. Good afternoon. I will explain in the simplest language how the past, present and future exist simultaneously.
    In the evening, you saw the twinkle of stars, starfall, moonlight, etc. All the phenomena that occur in deep space and are visible to us with the naked eye – all this has already happened in the past and reached the speed of light (300,000,000 m/s) only at that moment of your observation. Perhaps this star is no longer there, but its twinkle reaches us through a distance equal to a million light-years. But you perceive it as the present, happening at the moment.
    And with regard to the extinguished star, the moment when you saw the last flicker that has reached you is already in the future.

  8. I recommend that you carefully read Lee Smolin's book ” The Return of Time. From ancient cosmogony to the cosmology of the future”. I liked it.

  9. These words of A. E. should be viewed in the context of his writing – namely, on the occasion of the death of his friend, perhaps as a condolence, or consolation for the family members of the deceased. I don't think it's a good idea to give it the meaning of a “physically meaningful statement”.

    More fully in the letter, this statement reads as follows::

    “Right now, he left this strange world a little earlier than me. It doesn't mean anything. People like us who believe in physics know that the distinction between past, present, and future is just a persistent illusion.”

  10. In a way, he's right. In a sense, those who think differently are right: the present is a momentary slice between the past and the future. This statement of his does not carry any formula definition.

  11. I think what was meant was that there is only one particular version of the present that corresponds to a certain future, and that, in turn, corresponds to a single version of the past: in a second, the future will begin, and the past will end a second later.

  12. Because he believed that time is an illusion that exists only in the human brain. Time is not observed. Humanity invented it to describe something. It is not possible to predict or measure the exact time of any event

  13. The past and the future can and do exist only in the present, and at the same time they do not exist in the present.

    The present is that speculative facet of the trinity of existence, where the past can no longer be considered the past, and the future is still in zero position in reality.

    I think Einstein, in his theory of relativity, had in mind exactly this point, to which all our speculative ideas about it, divided into

    past > present > > future.

    Einstein imagines this point as past, present, and future.

    The point where everything exists and doesn't exist at the same time.

    This is the central semantic statement of the theory of relativity.

    This meaning is reflected in the law of dialectics on the contradictory interaction of identical parties, in which the contradictory interaction implies precisely this logical paradox – the inseparability of being and non-being.

    This meaning is also reflected in the idea of the trinity of God.

  14. The great Einstein was not only a genius of our time, but also just a wise man who understood the truth.

    He understood that to say such a thing about only the laws of nature of the earth is very fantastic. But when he saw for himself that every time he immersed himself in his soul, in that inner world, he touched the whole universe, where there are completely different laws and other possibilities, he simply shared his impressions, feelings and sensations.

    Because our souls, they are immortal and their home is a place where vreneni does not exist and there is no physical body, as well as a choice. Our souls leave this physical world and return home, where there are no such three dimensions as on earth.

    In our physical world, the soul receives three dimensions in which it lives its life. This is the time, this is the body, and this is the choice. Only through these values can a person learn and raise or lower their spiritual growth and vibrations. If there are no such values, then nothing will happen. There is no need to rush anywhere and nothing is as expensive as time, choice and body.

    Our inner world is an opportunity to see things based on past experience, being in the present moment, to imagine what we want in the future .

    It is there, in our own view, that we can do this. Making a wish is exactly how it can be fulfilled. Only a man can use all the gifts of God so skillfully that he can be Divine himself!

    Therefore, it is in vain to build theories and various guesses, it really is and it is indisputable. But only in order to understand this and understand the essence of things, we will have to recognize the existence of other parallel worlds and much more that we as humanity are not yet ready for…

  15. As far as I know the texts of Einstein's articles on both SRT and GR, Einstein never spoke about the simultaneity of the past, present and future. He discussed in great detail the concept of simultaneity, as one of the key concepts of the theory of relativity, the simultaneity of two events at different spatial points! But in this context, it never occurred to him to claim that the present, past, and future were simultaneous. The author of the question apparently meant that the Minkowski space, as a visual geometric illustration of SR, and in combination with the pseudo-Riemannian metric and GR, in one graphic picture depicts all time-like intervals, from the past, to the present and future, separated by a light cone from space-like intervals of simultaneous events! So, any graphs of classical Newtonian mechanics also contain all the moments on the time axis, from the past, to the present and future! Einstein has nothing new in this sense, except that in Newtonian graphs the role of the light cone was played by the plane of simultaneity, which gave simultaneity an absolute status.

  16. Adhering to the knowledge from the experience of enlightenment, I can tell you what this statement of Einstein looks like when the past, future and present are one, through my experience (being) in this state. For ordinary earth perception, time is a certain flow, extension, process. A person (as an example), his body is changing (aging) every second, every moment. And every moment that follows, “you” are no longer the same person. The mind records in memory (this is such a property of the mind as storage) these segments in a certain extent – in time. And what has already “happened” to the person (I) looks past, remains in memory. The mind can “move” from each conscious fixation, remembering the past, or it can move into the “future”, which is not yet available for consciousness, but it exists. Otherwise, there will not be a complete picture in which the mind lives. When I have had an experience (of enlightenment), when the mind stops clinging to the past, the future also disappears, and there is an emphasis on the present. The present itself is not felt in life, because the mind itself avoids it. After all, the mind itself (personal) exists only by moving from remembering the past and moving into the future: remembering and dreaming. The moment there is no memory, the “future” suddenly disappears, they are a product of the personal mind. And suddenly the present is revealed, which it turns out fills everything around and has always been here, including both the past and the future. And this is an eternity. For me, the term “eternity” is not associated with time, as is commonly believed when they want to show archaism and antiquity. Eternity is neither a process nor an extension. Eternity is a given, an infinity, such an expanded reality from nowhere to nowhere. From zero to infinity. On its own. This is what is all Non-Being and Being at the same time. So in this state of mind, when you are in the present, you see that there is no past and no future. They are one with the present. A person in his mind (personal picture of life) simply does not have enough coverage of processes, as with weak RAM and computer processor, as well as because of clinging to the past, which generates movement into the future, in an instant rushing through the “point” of the present-“here and now”. And as soon as death occurs-a break with the senses (limiters of perception, such dispensers), so immediately the whole REALITY will fill the consciousness in an instant and SUDDENLY everything will appear in the present time. And there is no other way in this world, because all dreams.

  17. Because the past, present, and future are all one point on the line.�

    Now I'll find a blank piece of paper and try to draw my own idea. 1 minute)

    The past shapes the future, and we are here and now. That is, at 1 point. Between what was and what will be.

  18. Eternalism This should mean that the time dimension is only one of the four physical dimensions that are similar in properties, that future events “already exist” and that objectively there is no “flow” of time. This idea is sometimes referred to by the terms “block-time” or “block-universe”, because this theory describes spacetime as a static, unchanging “block”, as opposed to the traditional worldview: three-dimensional space over time…

  19. Einstein considered space-time to be inseparable into time and space. You can imagine space-time as a film on which all the events of the past and future already exist. And, a person, during his life, turns out to be consistently in different frames, but cannot jump over frames. But, an outsider, a hypothetical observer, for example, from the fifth dimension, sees all the frames in their entirety. But, at the same time, it can not squeeze into the film, that is, become a participant in the film.

    In a person's life, however, the law of causal relationships applies. This is time in the human sense.

  20. There is only a moment between the past and the future, it is called life!
    In general, time is the 4th dimension, which has its own properties and everything in the world is relative. Here we look at the sun and see it for real, but in fact we see it as it was 8 minutes ago. With stars and galaxies in the same way, we look where they have long been gone, and maybe they are already dead.

  21. Past, present, and future exist simultaneously, because time-space-matter = one and the same thing. It is a continuum in which everything is interdependent.

    This is confirmed by the Planck dimensions:

  22. A good explanation for this concept came up with a British physicist, Julian Barbour: he proposed to draw an analogy between what we call “moments” and integers: 1,2,3,4, and so on — up to infinity.

    Einstein's theory of Relativity depicts time as another dimension, so it can be roughly plotted on the number axis.

    And, just as integers on a mathematical scale all exist at the same time, any time interval (whether it is from the past, “present” or future, that is, whether it is closer to the beginning of the axis or further away — it does not matter) �always exists.

  23. I think that he took the present moment of time as an infinitesimal quantity, then in this case the past and future, if we take their nearest extreme infinitesimal moments to the moment of the present, coincide with the moment of the present. This is the continuity of time.

  24. So that this statement does not look like a paradox, we need to consider time not as a vector, but as a structure with a fixed topology.

    One example of such a structure is offered by the science of folding https://tss.ruslo.pro/ns.pdf. In it, time is considered as a three-dimensional body of the process life cycle: a kind of egg, the” yolk “of which is represented by past events, the” protein ” by probable events of the future, and the shell is a collection of all possible bifurcation points at which the process ends, either becoming another process or breaking up into parts.

    In this time-structure, there is a constant expansion of the core-past due to the fixation- “solidification” of those future options that have been realized. This expansion will end with the “yolk” reaching the shell and completing the process in its previous form.

    However, all the events of this time – realized, possible and not realized-still remain in their places and exist “simultaneously”, i.e., in the time structure of one particular process.

    Although, if we talk specifically about Einstein, then I am more inclined to the already given answer with the quote “God does not play roulette” – I think that this version is closer to the truth.

  25. Einstein reasoned this way and spoke about it because of his own theories, that approaching the speed of light slows down time.

    Albert Einstein used to say that-People like us who believe in physics know that the distinction between past, present, and future is just stubbornly persistent illusions.

    According to his theory of relativity, if one of the two twins remains on Earth, and the other flies into space at a speed close to the speed of light, then, returning home in 10 years, the astronaut who remained young will find his elderly brother on Earth. According to Einstein, for a body moving at the speed of light, time slows down, or even flows in the opposite direction, and this feature makes it possible to move along the time axis.

    Einstein didn't know what he'd done.

    According to the classical understanding of time, the entire universe simultaneously moves in time.

    But Einstein argued that this is not so, that at high speeds time is bifurcated — one system moves and lives at one speed, the other — at another.

    But in 1922, the French philosopher Henri Bergson pointed out to him that the multiplicity of times is an illusion, there is only one real time and in theory it goes only in a fixed frame of reference, where there is a person.

    From the theory of relativity, everyone remembered the so-called twin paradox.

    But it follows from the conditions of the theory that the movement is relative, and who flies away from whom is indifferent.

    If you imagine that the rocket on which the second twin flew away is the reference point, and the Earth moves away from it with super-speed, then the brother who remains on Earth will be young, and the one in the rocket will age. These are just logical dead ends.

    In the theory of relativity, the pictorial technique of perspective, its dynamic analog, is applied.

    A direct perspective is an image on a two-dimensional plane of three-dimensional space.

    When one artist draws a portrait of a person who is standing next to him, and another who is 200 meters away.

    And there the artist also draws both of them.

    The first one will draw “their “person big, and” someone else's ” person small.

    And the other artist is exactly the opposite.

    According to Einstein, it turns out that the one in the distance is a dwarf.

    But he is an ordinary person, and his size only shows the distance from him.

    So the theory of relativity shows only the difference in velocities and nothing more.

    As we approach the speed of light, time in the formulas seems to slow down.

    But only mathematically.

    Mathematical calculations are a way of depicting reality, but not reality itself.

  26. To physically exist, you must be present in our world for some time. There can't be an object without length, width, and height, and there can't be an object without a “duration”?

    An “instantaneous” object, that is, one that does not exist for at least some amount of time, does not exist at all.

    Past and future do not take up time in the present-nihilism. It is impossible to quantify the duration of “present time”: any amount of time that we call “present time” can be divided into parts-past, present, and future.

    If the present lasts, say, a second, then this second can be divided into three parts: 1 part will be the past, 2-the present, 3-the future. A third of a second, which we now call the present, can also be divided into three parts. This can continue indefinitely. Therefore, the present does not really exist, because it does not continue in time. Universal nihilism uses this argument to prove that nothing exists at all.

  27. Because it does exist, but at different points in space. So, for us now, “there are” stars that gave off light millions of years ago. We see constellations, but we do not see their present, but their ancient state. At the same time, there is also the present state of the cosmos, but it will be possible to learn it only in the distant future. Even if the floor of the starry sky was swept away by some unprecedented force, we do not know about it now, but we see the old serene picture, where everything is in its place.

    Also, there are places in the universe, at a distance of 4 billion light-years from us, which can NOW observe the birth of our planet. And much closer, the places from which your birth is “visible”.

    Thus, in the Universe now there is a past, present and future, but there is no one who could see it and it is determined by the finiteness of the speed of light.

  28. Einstein always had a volume of The Secret Doctrine of Helena Blavatsky on his desk. This means that he was familiar with the esoteric teaching. And if so, then he knew that on a certain higher than physical plane of existence ( consciousness) there is no time. And since there is no time, which is a sequence of events, then there is no division of existence into the past and present. and the future. They exist there at the same time.

    There is only one tool that allows you to check this – this is the ability of a person to transfer his consciousness to this plane and act there.

  29. I don't know if Einstein actually said this, but this phrase reflects the essence of the Theory of Relativity, which Einstein created in 1905 and supplemented in 1915.

    Einstein's bold idea was that our three-dimensional space and time are a single object, which can be called space-time.

    And if in space we are well able to move back and forth, then in time we move as on an escalator, evenly in one direction, but there is both the front of the escalator and the back at the same time? So is the time as well. At the same time, there is a past, a present, and a future.

  30. “Why did Einstein say that the past, present, and future exist simultaneously?” Einstein loved the game of confusion, he needed as much fog as possible to deceive. Incomprehensible things attract attention. This is just ordinary PR. Looking for meaning in such misunderstandings is a waste of your personal time, a distraction of your brain activity from pressing tasks.

  31. Actually, you should ask Einstein himself. But why not discuss the concept itself?

    This question does not specify what is actually being asked. It probably means that this is already clear. But this is not the case.

    Existence begins to be recognized in the subject directly as soon as it appears. With the development of intelligence, as well as obtaining a certain set of knowledge, the subject begins to reason not only about his own existence, which he has always been directly aware of, but also about the existence of objects. Say, other people, animals, plants, nature, the universe, being, and so on. Of course, he can talk about them, just as he knows both the past and the future. But they are not supposed to exist at the present moment.

    The past, present and future can be considered to exist simultaneously only from a rather special point of view, in line with a certain worldview concept (say, GR or SRT). If you imagine an observer who is outside of our space-time world, then he can easily observe all of time in its entirety (well, or as far as his gaze will suffice), and for him all the observed moments of time will be merged.

    For the human being, however, only the present moment exists in reality, the past is in personal memory or tradition, the future in fantasy or speculation.

    Einstein's statement is really nothing more than a kind of mind game.

  32. They exist simultaneously. If you take into account a small period of time: a second. The second has already come and gone and was real for a second. If you take a longer period, then it is also short relative to eternity. As the song says: There is only a moment between the past and the future, which is called life. This moment is the present, which we cannot slow down. Variations in behavior do not affect the passage of time.

  33. If you take a person, then memory is responsible for the past, imagination for the future. But it all comes together at one point, in the present. It turns out that a person lives in three worlds at once-past, present and future.

  34. Everything you do in this second is already past, present and future. What you did will be reflected in all times. After all, we ourselves lay down by our actions both the memory(past) and the future( what will happen after our action) and the present.

  35. Everything is elementary. This question does not mean a physical property of space-time, but the subjective quality of the individual's subconscious mind to analysis, from the tip of the neuron to perception and back (this also “takes” time)… Only a living, heuristic consciousness can sense the passage of time. For the rest of the unconscious, it basically does not exist. By the way, there are people with diseases of the brain areas responsible for the ability to sense time (distortion) , they simply do not realize it… This is the irony of BEING.

  36. Everything is very simple, although it will be difficult to understand with a mind that is used to doing calculations on paper. The universe is a continuum that is constantly in motion, forming connections with itself. It is impossible to fix in any of the moments, except in the calculation on paper. There are conditional reference systems such as space-time, which are also constantly in motion and forming connections. Already formed connections have not gone away, the result is the moment now, while future connections are defined (like a step, a raised foot) but have not come at the moment. For the conscious person, this cannot be understood, since everything is in a state of quantum entanglement with everything, in terms of entropy. Well, as a bonus, the aware person is aware of events in the past.

  37. Because Albert understood the meaning of this moment… The past, present, and future are all at the same point… Only a small number of people can see everything at one point… take, for example, a matchbox , it always exists simultaneously in space. To see all its faces, we need to rotate it ,which means we need to spend some time… But it always stays at the same point.. this is just a person who takes time to understand the whole picture of what is happening…

  38. What exactly he meant – to say exactly, you need to know the context. In a sense, they are simultaneous because they are really just modes of thinking that exist only in the” eternal present ” of consciousness. Perhaps Einstein simply perceived the world as enlightened, timeless, that is, all at once as a single connected organism.

    For physics, by and large, time does not exist – there is only the distance between events in space-time, there is a certain orientation of intervals, which is convenient for practical purposes to represent as a time axis, but qualitatively a moment in the past or future does not differ from observation in any way – except for the position of the observer. And for physical laws at the micro level, it doesn't even matter whether time flows in one direction or the other: interactions are symmetric along this axis. The fact of being present at a particular point in the development of a system is an entirely subjective phenomenon, just like being present at a certain point in space (see the Principle of Locality). And what is subjectivity – physics is still powerless to answer. In the era of quantum mechanics and relativity, physics simply encountered this awareness for the first time.

  39. I think the answer is simple – because someone (or something) who has a present always has some past and necessarily has some future. Nothing comes out of nowhere and goes nowhere. These three concepts are interrelated and are elements of a single whole. This statement borders on the border of philosophy and physics, and is directly related to the definition of the first cause, the theory of causality

  40. I don't like it when they give examples of their own mystical experience, although I myself have a lot of experience in meditation and prayer. Here is a real model of the past, present, and future. Let's say our universe performs a cyclical process. For example, explosion-expansion-compression-explosion-expansion-compression… Let's take the simplest loop model – a carousel. If you have driven a full cycle on the carousel, then where are you? In the past? In the present? In the future? You are at this point in the present, have been in the past, and will be in the future. That is, both the past, present, and future are at the same point. But more seriously, the past always leaves its information trail in space…As for the future, first the thought is born, then the “drawing” and only then the future. The “blueprint” information is also stored in the Universe information field. Thus, the trace of the past, the project of the future and our present live simultaneously.

  41. I wonder what will give you the answer to this question and how you will use this information. Okay.

    Albert Einstein, like many recognized geniuses, often said that their ideas do not really belong to them, and this information came to them “from outside” and understand it as you want. Vivid examples are N. Tesla or Mendeleev, who saw the well-known table in a dream. If you're interested, read more, and I'll get to the point in the meantime. The whole life and work of these geniuses is imbued with mysticism, individuality and willpower – only fools will deny this. Given that these people had access to knowledge completely beyond the reach of ordinary minds, we can only assume that Albert Einstein's consciousness reached a level where ordinary perception of reality ceased to affect his mind and he went beyond it. Those few who really understood and felt it are unlikely to run around with posters and fanfares informing the whole world that they have discovered something beyond the control of an ordinary person.

    In any case, if you answer this question more specifically, I will only tell you my picture of the world, which, quite possibly, will become just an anchor for you and block the opportunity for you to describe it as YOU feel. Given that the descriptive processes of our reality are completely individual for all people, you, as a person asking questions, should understand and feel this yourself. Develop yourself, your consciousness, and perhaps one day such questions in your head will run out. What I wish you quite sincerely.

  42. Look around you. Do you see the time anywhere? It is the time and not a clock with numbers or hands? Can you feel time, breathe it in, trip over it? People can only be aware of time, measure the duration of material processes and events with it, use it in calculations, divide it into intervals of the past, present and future, and so on. That's the trick. Temporal concepts of the present past and future exist, including simultaneously, only inside our consciousness.

  43. Einstein was strongly influenced in his youth by Kant's Critique of pure reason, which, among other things, proves the subjectivity of our perception of time – from the past to the future in the form of a certain arrow. This means that in reality there can be no division between the past and the future, but everything can exist simultaneously. In general, it was one of the books that prompted Einstein to study the nature of time/space and their relationship to each other.

    The consequence was the creation of special relativity, then Einstein's former teacher, mathematician Hermann Minkowski, proposed a geometric representation of the kinematics of relativity theory to his student, introducing a four-dimensional pseudo-Euclidean space (now known as Minkowski space). In this model, time and space are not different entities, but interrelated dimensions of a single space-time. Minkowski declared: “From now on, time in itself and space in itself become an empty fiction, and only their unity preserves the chance of reality.”

    In general, this argument was used by Einstein.

    Then the following happened. Around 1977-78, Soviet astrophysicist Nikolai Kozyrev unexpectedly managed to observe the past, present, and future of space objects simultaneously and found that the picture of the world is adequate to the Minkowski geometry, which, unfortunately, was very briefly reported in his articles. Naturally, several scientific groups rushed to check such sensational observations and confirmed them. Although official science still remains silent, neither for nor against. Here is the original article by Kozyrev, I hope you will understand. He knew more than he said, and talked more than he wrote. I was hoping to write a book where all these points will be analyzed in detail. I didn't have time.


    These observations can be considered a physical confirmation that the past, present and future are a single conglomerate. And philosophy is not an assistant here, there are no more Kants, and others do not pull)

  44. Einstein probably learned this from the Vedic book Bhagavad-gita.

    There, in the text of Chapter 7 26, it is said, ” O Arjuna, as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, I know everything that has happened in the past, is happening now, and will happen in the future.”

    One might argue that God simply remembers the past, sees the present – but how does he see the future?!

    Only if it already exists.

    It turns out that in some absolute system (for example, spiritual) it all exists invariably: past, present, and future.

  45. Because the past, present and future are located at the same point, or rather in a person. If you want to know the world, know how a person works. A computer, just a rough approximation. Being in the here and now, a person has a database of the past, his computing system performs algorithmization of the future based on his experience of the past and present, so the database already has data and the future, here you can relate the concepts:fate, intuition, deja vu, etc. If you follow the biographies of scientists and draw a parallel with their research, you will find a very close connection.Well, according to your faith…depending on what inner essence will outweigh, for someone time will be linear, for someone three-dimensional, someone in general will hang in eternity))) Because at the gene level, a person has information about the entire period of life and development of a person, and most likely about what will happen. So a person being in the here and now has a decent list of ancestors before him and if the family does not stop at him, then after him, so the past, present and future are also in one moment.

  46. Because yesterday, today, and tomorrow do not exist by themselves, but in our minds. What is considered present and what is considered past depends on the scale of consciousness and the process under consideration. For some, the present is a brief moment, less than a second, but for someone who thinks on a historical, geological, or even astronomical scale, the present can span entire epochs. For Einstein, who thought on a universal, global scale, time took on a completely different meaning, different from ordinary understanding: this is not just a virtual scale from the “past” to the “future” (whose past and whose future?), but energy levels of physical processes of different scales.

  47. When the context of a particular statement is not known, it is very difficult to interpret it correctly. Nevertheless, I would venture to suggest that when Einstein spoke about the time of occurrence of an event, he most likely meant the relativity of a given moment of the present for different simultaneously existing observers.

    In other words, the same event for observer A has already occurred and remains in the past, observer B is sure that this event is happening right now – in the present, and observer C expects this event to occur in the future. In other words, it turns out that this event exists immediately in the past, in the present, and in the future. In this sense, it is perfectly acceptable to say that the past, present, and future exist simultaneously.

    On the other hand, the spatially similar linearization of time and its threefold division into past, present, and future are just a feature of human consciousness. In fact, there are really only successive moments of the present time of zero duration, separated by time intervals of finite duration. That is, the present moments of the object being observed at this moment alternate with time intervals of a certain duration, during which the object is temporarily unavailable for observation.

    St. Augustine put it best about the illusory nature of the past and future when he asked the following question and answered it himself: “If the future and the past really exist, then I would like to know where they exist. … wherever they exist, they no longer constitute the future or the past, but the present.

    So, wherever that which exists exists, it cannot exist otherwise than in the present” (Confessions, Book Eleven, ch. 18).

    And further: “Now it becomes clear to me that neither the future nor the past exists, and that it is not precisely expressed about the three tenses when they say: past, present, and future; but it would be more accurate, it seems, to express it like this: the present of the past, the present of the future. Only in our soul are there three corresponding forms of perception, and not somewhere in the indus (i.e., in objective activity). Thus, for the present of past objects, we have memory, or remembrance (memoria); for the present of present objects, we have sight, view, intuition (intuitus); and for the present of future objects, we have hope, hope (exspectatio).

    … the future should not be taken as already existing (jam esse), and the past should not be taken as previously existing (adhuc esse)” (Confessions, Book Eleven, Chapter 20).

    Thus, since only a recurring but always new moment of the present is real, the question of the simultaneous existence of the past, present, and future becomes meaningless altogether.

  48. You understand that the past, present, and future cannot exist simultaneously. If someone does not agree with this statement of the question, they should advise how to distinguish them in the present?

  49. The world is an Atom and its repetitions, that is, the world is indivisible. If there is time, then past-present-future, but, surprisingly, future-present-past. There is nothing between the past and the future (Bishop of Hippo).

  50. As for me, this is due to the theory of parallel universes and the space-time continuum. For both he and his student and follower, Stephen Hawking, spoke about it . They also say that time is a relative concept.

  51. Think for yourself – what is time?

    YEAR – The Earth orbited the Sun once.

    DAY – The Earth turned around on its axis once.

    In a year of 365 days – For one revolution around the Sun-the Earth turned around its axis 365 times.

    Why there are 24 hours in a day – Because humanity has left its 12-number system for “time” (It seemed more convenient).

    So much for all time – it's a cycle of the Earth's movement, which moves at a constant speed and along a closed route. In its own way, Time is just a way to measure speed.

  52. The past, present, and future are connected. An event made in the past will affect your future. And time is a very flexible concept. What happened five minutes ago is already past time, and it is impossible to return it. What was once the future becomes the present, and then the past. Human life is certainly not long-lasting, but there is no need to rush much. So the whole life will pass in a hurry.

    I think that's what Einstein meant.

  53. Einstein rightly assumed that the past, present and future are inseparably interconnected in the algorithm of self-development of all self-developing systems of nature, which confirms his well-known statement: “All previous experience convinces us that nature is the implementation of the simplest mathematically conceivable elements. I am convinced that by means of purely mathematical constructions we can find those concepts and logical connections between them that will give us the key to understanding the phenomena of nature.”Albert Einstein, which was confirmed by my research.

  54. Michele Angelo Besso, a Swiss-Italian engineer who was a close friend of Albert Einstein during his time at the Federal Polytechnic Institute in Zurich, passed away on March 15, 1955. Einstein, upon learning of this, wrote a letter to Besso's family expressing his condolences. Among other things, the brilliant physicist wrote the following: “He left this strange world a little earlier than I did. It doesn't mean anything. People like us who believe in physics know that the distinction between past, present, and future is just a persistent illusion.” And already on April 18 of the same year, Albert Einstein himself left this world. I think that for the Besso family, his statement about time was not a scientific discovery at all, but only words of comfort. However, for us, his descendants, it is a clear illustration of how any event that has already happened to others in the past is quite capable of becoming just as real for any of us in the future…

  55. I think because we are made by our life experience, which determines our decisions, i.e. our past has determined our present and guides us to our future

  56. when we mean “the future,”we mean, without realizing it, “the present” in relation to the future in relation to our present. therefore, we think that the ” future “does not exist in the present – because” future “and” present ” are different concepts. but the future is also the future, and relative to the present is the time of our sojourn and the only point of time relative to which the future can exist and always exists. similarly, with the “past”.

    Although I don't know, I don't think HE meant it too austerely. but interesting.

  57. Because depending on the reference frame, two events can be simultaneous, or one occurs earlier or later than the other. It all depends on the speed at which the reference frame will move relative to the system in which these events occur. This is indicated by the SRT-special theory of relativity.

  58. He said this because rest is relative, and the speed of light is absolute, that is, invariant-constant in any ISO. And not the other way around, as it was supposed to be initially (peace seemed to be something unshakable, and speeds were added up without having a limit). Because of this, the simultaneity of events is also relative. From which it logically follows that for an” absolute ” ISO moving relative to the universe at the speed of light, our past, present, and future are simultaneous! A four-dimensional space degenerates into a plane.

  59. Because time is just one of the four dimensions of space. Therefore, the past, present, and future exist simultaneously, just as we and the objects around us exist simultaneously.�

  60. He believed that time, like space, exists by itself. And it divides human logic into the past, present and future. Since the person himself is limited by his senses(touch , smell, etc.), this simplifies (adjusts) everything that he can think of. Time itself is and is not for us. The same thing as emptiness. These concepts are not fully understood for us. We are just a Human Being-a creature of the senses . Albert Einstein said this because

    He considered time to be a substance that is not divisible like emptiness. and if you do not take the feelings of a person, then there will be nothing to share. there will be no time because there is nothing to measure it with.

  61. There is a dialectical opposition of the basic forms of matter-matter and field. Their essences are strikingly opposite. An object made of matter occupies a certain place in space. And no other object of matter can take this place. In order for the second object from the substance to take the place where the first object from the substance is placed, it must be moved to another place. And only after that, the second object from the substance can take the place occupied by the first object from the substance.

    The situation with fields is fundamentally different from the situation with objects made of matter. An infinite number of fields with a wide variety of characteristics can be located in the same space at the same time. At the same time, each field completely retains its essential characteristic and at the same time does not affect the characteristic features of other fields in any way.

    Objects made of matter have shape, weight, extension, friction, inertia, exist in time-from the past to the present and will have their own future. Fields do not know such qualities.

    There are fields that reflect objects made of matter and preserve in a peculiar form many of the characteristics of objects made of matter that are accessible to the perception of human senses.

    Objects made of matter and different fields lead to the idea that both of them have opposite characteristics in relation to each other. These opposite characteristics are reflected in the law of mirror contrast. The wording of the law can be clarified and changed, but the essence of the law does not change.

    Despite all their common similarity, people differ from each other physically, by the features of brain structures and the features of their biofield. Together, a unique personality is formed: poet, artist, composer, singer, designer, military commander, driver, gardener, financier, administrator, cook, artist, architect, teacher, sailor, scientist, criminal, prosecutor, etc. Every profession has its own luminaries. There are professions that can be taught to many. There are professions that can be taught to a few, if you have certain qualities.

    There is a small category of people who have unusual natural abilities that allow them to perceive the real world in a wider range than ordinary people perceive it. These are psychics. They also have their own characteristics: a particularly high level of empathy (the ability to enter into the position of another person, see the world through the eyes of another person), the ability to make discoveries, the ability to see the past, influence the psyche of other people, predict the weather, etc.

    A special, very rare variety of psychics is represented by soothsayers, prophets, and clairvoyants of the future. If other psychics perceive the real world in a wider real range, then soothsayers perceive the future, the time that will come one day, which is currently not there.

    It is time to return to the law of the mirror opposite. If we perceive the opposite characteristics of substances and fields with understanding, then we stop at the future time with bewilderment. How can you see the time that will come sometime in the indefinite future? How can you see and perceive what is not there?

    The problem of cognition of the real world, its objective understanding or delusion, misunderstanding of people who naturally have the ability to perceive

    If the law of the mirror opposite is true, then it must also apply to time. This means that in the field domain, time can exist simultaneously in the past, present, and future. No matter how strange it may sound for materialists. So, in the structures of the brain and the biofield of individual, very rare people, there must be special unusual formations that allow such a person to perceive the future.

    Diviners themselves do not know, do not understand the nature of their divination, cannot explain it. But, nevertheless, they are absolutely sure that they are right, in the reality of their vision of the future.

    The law of mirror contrast allows us to give a fairly objective interpretation of the phenomenon of predicting the future. Moreover. There are facts that allow us to say that knowing the possible future, you can make adjustments to the present so that negative consequences can be avoided in the future. Although the diviners themselves relate to this possibility in different ways.

    The very perception of the future does not depend on the soothsayer. The future, according to the law of modality, can only be what it can become by necessity. And the presentation of what you saw, its interpretation-all this already depends on the clairvoyant himself and those people who will decipher what the soothsayer said.

    The epistemological conflict is obvious here. But the very fact of being able to see the future tense today is a reality. And this reality should be taken for granted.

    The prophecies mentioned above were possible only if the past, present and future exist simultaneously in the information space. It is possible only if the law of mirror opposition, which is characteristic of the relationship between matter and fields, manifests itself.

    Human perception of such a phenomenon is possible only if there is a sense organ in the structure of the human brain and its biofield that allows us to perceive an object that cannot be perceived by any other sense organs. Such a specific, unique, peculiar, unusual sense organ is formed in individuals who are very rare.

    All people have ears – organs of hearing. But what a wide palette of diversity of perception of these sounds by individuals-from congenital deafness to the most subtle nuances of musical harmony. Eyes are the organs of vision. But different people perceive the world in different ways: from congenital blindness to an infinite variety of colors. Etc.

    The range of perception of time, probably, can also be very different. Although we still do not know about the existence of such an organ. This is why this body has not yet been named.

  62. Many years before Einstein was born, an ancient sage said:: “The present is the child of the Past; the Future is the offspring of the Present. And yet, oh, the real world! Do you not know that you have no father and can have no offspring; that you are constantly begetting only yourself? Before you began to say, “I am a product of the past moment, a child of the past,” you had already become that very past. Before you utter the last syllable, behold! you are no longer the Present, but truly the Future. So the Past, Present, and Future are the Ever-existent Trinity in the One-the Mahamaya of the Absolute ” IS.” With respect.

  63. Giving this answer, I was sorting through a 40cm ruler in my hands.My gaze moved slowly from the number ” 0 “to the number “40”…. the entire interval between them existed simultaneously.That is, going slowly, from 0 to 40, the past, present and future exist simultaneously, so he later recalled.

  64. The reason for this story is known only to him,but maybe we can put a logical end to this question!? at the same time, three times are in the minds of people. Convinced?

  65. Our brain can simultaneously generate thoughts about both the future and the past in the present by discussing the past event imagining or planning it in the future

  66. I remember what I was taught in the past.
    I need to protect myself from the dangers of this present.
    And I don't want to get sick and die this is the future.
    Such thoughts exist simultaneously in every person.

  67. For the peculiarities of human perception, this is true. Yes, I also counted, until I noticed how the present flew by when I fell asleep at night. Time flies by. This suggests that objectively time exists as a separate dimension, matter, and the sense of the present is only created in us, laid down so that we do not become confused in our life from first to the end. Also, the present constantly falls into the past and future. Finally, is it possible to come up with something that I have never felt at all, not seen, not remembered, not mixed up from different knowledge? So time is noticed deeply inwardly by a person, and concepts that are elusive, invented for a long time and in the minds of most, and time in general is fixed in the minds of all in one way or another-do not linger

  68. The past is no longer there, the future is not yet there. Past and future are only thoughts that come in the present. Everything exists in the present, everything else is not present.

  69. This idea is very distantly and indirectly related to Einstein's scientific ideas. Based on modern science and philosophy: past time never began – it is actually infinite, and future time has not yet arrived and it is only potentially infinite. If there is a God (and I personally believe in this), then He “sees” both the past and the future as actually existing and takes an active part in it. And we can take this circumstance into account or forget about it…

  70. I personally do not know very well what exactly the respected scientist said about the simultaneity of events and about time, but I can offer my own version of the answer to the understanding of the term simultaneity and the concepts of past – present-future. The more local (closer to each other) objects are, the more correct it is to say that events are simultaneous for these two objects. And if you imagine us and the inhabitants of a very distant galaxy at the other end of the Universe-then to talk about the simultaneity of events for us and for them is a rather controversial and incomprehensible way to compare events in terms of their simultaneity. I once saw a slide-where the space-time continuum is represented in the form of a “loaf” and it can be cut strictly perpendicular to the time axis – or it can be tilted – it turns out that there are a lot of PVC sections – giving very different concepts of simultaneity. Here you can also remember that the speed of light – although the largest, but still finite-and while the light from a distant galaxy reaches us – will pass … a certain amount of time … to measure the simultaneity of which we are trying… it turns out a very strange picture… Now about the past, present and future – for us and the inhabitants of distant galaxies-taking into account the speed of propagation of light and waves-the past of the inhabitants of distant galaxies is quite perceived by us as the present – the light of stars is their photo from the past. the present moment for us is to some extent the future for our comrades from another galaxy – if, again, we stand on the concept of a certain “universal” simultaneity of time in the universe. And finally , we probably do not understand the phenomenon of time very well at the moment – as concepts, as concepts. There was Kozyrev's theory of time – he perceived time as the ebb and flow of a certain energy – for an object that attracts time energy, time slowed down, for objects that lose time energy, time runs much faster. I certainly don't encourage anyone to believe in anything, it's just that these are very interesting ideas that are quite pleasant to evaluate in your own way-to think about the eternal – which is both the past and the present and, of course, the future. Good luck to all and enjoy learning about the Universe!

  71. And I agree with Him! So it is too banal, 4itav this statement (present), the beginning of a phrase or word that you managed to read in a second already in the past, and about the future it will simply be useful in the future, as a lesson or a note from the past . And in general, is there anyone here with such a mindset as mine !?+_+and

  72. Einstein thus said that both the past, present, and future are” packed “into a single point in time, which can be called “now” or”life.” Then the question is: can we manage our life to the fullest extent (both past, present, and future)?

    “There is only a moment between the past and the future, it is called life…”

    We can “draw” and model our own future. The success of this promotion will depend on current attitudes and past experience.

    The present is a less manageable category. The present is more controlled by the past-mistakes and victories, developed reflexes of behavior, everything today is the result of previously laid reasons. Management of the present (and thus shaping the future) is possible only through overcoming, the manifestation of will.

    The past seems like an unmanageable quantity. But this is also relative. With the help of memory, you can go back in time, recall the relevant situation, rethink it and your conclusions that shaped our worldview. A kind of time travel. And this technique is successfully used in psychotherapy to remove psychotrauma. In this way, we use our past to influence both the present and the future. As if we manage the past as well. Why not?

    And if on the scale of the country or humanity? The same principles apply. You can also ask yourself these questions: Why is history the most “falsified” area of knowledge? What kind of future is being painted for us through the media and cinema? Do we agree to such scenarios? What kind of future do we want? What picture of the future of humanity can be called positive, happy, joyful?

  73. Because our mind is able to generalize – to go beyond the framework of a specific abstraction. Time in the universe is linear for everything, for each unit of measurement located at its own point of reference-an abstraction. And each local unit of measurement does not overlap with the other in some way! You live 80 years, I live 40, for me your future that will become your present does not exist on a physical level. However, and vice versa. Yes, time stretches for someone, and for someone it shrinks, but it always flows in a straight line and in no other way! Einstein spent his entire life studying philosophy.

  74. Einstein simultaneously peed in diapers, won the Nobel Prize, discovered his theory, and cried bitterly when he received a kick in the ass for a dirty bed. Original! You can hear him sobbing even now, because all his actions and our actions are performed simultaneously.

  75. He hinted at the existence of time fields (and/or time particles , time quanta, etc.), but could not explain, by the way, not only he. At that time, the mathematical apparatus did not allow ( and is still weak ) to describe models related to time…..

  76. Probably because both the past and the future are in the present, and the present itself does not exist, or rather, it is only a moment. There was such a good song in Soviet times –

    There is only a moment between the past and the future,

    And this moment is called life.

  77. There is only the present. It moves letters on the monitor, but their total number in the alphabet does not change, although they need to be inserted here one hundred and forty pieces

  78. This is absolutely true. And anyone who has delved at least a little into this topic knows this. The average person (not Einstein) cannot imagine how this can be – one thing contradicts the other. From a philosophical point of view, contradictions cannot be explained, but they can be understood. From a scientific point of view, this statement can also be justified.

  79. All inanimate and living matter in the universe, including humans, consists of electrons and protons, which were born immediately after the big bang 13.75 billion years ago, and carry microparticles of the energy of this explosion without collapsing.
    Moreover, their life span is a huge number of billions of years.
    Therefore, everything in the universe consists of microparticles that were in the past, exist in the present, and will continue to exist in the future.
    But by what regularity they form everything in the universe-this is a very interesting topic.

  80. Space is absolute and eternal, and everything that exists in it is relative and finite. In absoluteness, everything has both a place and a time in a Single To-so the philosophy of the East asserts. Hence the idea of simultaneity naturally follows. Intuitive and acceptable. And here's why Einstein… Maybe because the imagination is developed, intuition… which is also in the spirit of the East.

  81. Time is a purely human concept, invented for the convenience of perception and transmission of information. There is no such thing as time. Or at least they have not yet discovered a particle that would carry such a physical quantity as time, it cannot yet be touched. The same situation applies to gravity, for example. Experts in theory suggest that there is a particle responsible for gravity, but this is still not confirmed experimentally.�

  82. In our minds, everything exists simultaneously. We remember the past, live in the present, and try to plan for the future. If we assume that our consciousness is immortal, then after the death of the body, it will continue to exist, remember everything, and everything that we have planned, it will continue to implement. That is, it contains everything. So Einstein believed that thought is immortal. “I think, so I exist.”

  83. Einstein wrote a lot of assumptions, conditional explanations in theoretical definitions, expressed many ideas, hypotheses and theses, and at the same time showed the language

    but nowhere in any of his works is the identity between the past, present, and future indicated.

  84. Our worldview consists of two processes: incoming data of a certain modality and range, which are distorted by the psychophysiological apparatus at the entrance, and thinking (processing of this data). As a result of both not very perfect processes, it seems to our consciousness that events occur sequentially and exist only in the present. How things really are with the human device for receiving incoming data, there is a chance to find out only with the highest level of development of the thinking process. To do this, we need to assume the hypothesis that our universe is just one layer of being, and the rest are hidden for perception, but not for the penetration of thought (perhaps Einstein did). And humanity for the most part is still like a baby, from which, in order to hide something, it is enough to cover it with a rag.

  85. We don't know why he said that, but we will respect his opinion. I think he thought so, because his thinking was unusual, spatiotemporal, and to put it in a childish way, the past was in the past, and the future will be in the future. I don't find any simultaneity here.

  86. Is that exactly what he said?” I doubt it! After all, the past, present and future differ precisely in the meaning of time, that is, they are not simultaneous simply by definition.

  87. Probably from the point of view of an outsider, this is true . If at all this is possible, how to think on other scales in relation to space itself . Imagine the space as a sheet of “cloth” with three points . All three points are located on the same plane of space. They exist simultaneously on this plane . But for those processes that take place inside the “fabric” of space, these points will already acquire the time parameter . So we say space-time . Probably so .

  88. Because, for example, you, who exist in the present, exist a moment ago – in the past. After all, the moment has passed, but You are not erased from the past, You continue to exist in it. Also, you in the future exist simultaneously with yourself in the present. And since you in the present exist simultaneously with yourself in the past, then you in the future exist simultaneously with yourself in the past.

  89. The Holy Trinity : Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Cause, Effect, and Relationship between them. It exists from the beginning of time to its day. Read the Bible, develop.

  90. Since we do not remember our birth, but only our life, this does not mean that we will not remember our death. The collective consciousness of humanity keeps a record of history, through memory and information. In this sense, these hypostases: the future, present and past in a tight coupling! It is human nature to remember, believe, love, dream, and hope) But if we consider such an artifact as, for example, the “Tibetan Book of the Dead”, then the worlds before and after have a clear border and differ diametrically, but they are still in the same plane of perception, as a simultaneous event of the past, present and future… Everything is decided by intuition. But it is a complex product, an informational unconscious from the past, present and future!it was possessed by many Geniuses who were lucky enough to be born here), including Einstein))

  91. To say that simultaneity is explained only by the delay in the passage time of light waves, or by the tendency of the past and future to merge with the present as infinitesimal quantities, is as simplistic as showing a finger-pulling trick instead of real magic.
    If simultaneity did not take place, but was just a scientific theory, there would not be numerous cases of changing the fate and, in particular, health through the correction of the past, including the centuries-old one. I will give an example of the famous Russian scientist S. N. Lazarev, who for many years studied the cause-and-effect relationships of diseases and events of the distant past, who used them in the treatment of severe cases of diseases, but completely abandoned this because of the deadly danger of correcting fate. The cure of some diseases and problems inevitably led to other more serious ones after some time, and this was impossible to predict.
    Information about the past, present, and near future is present at the same time, but is hidden from the person due to the danger of not careful and not reasonable handling. Knowing this gives you a great temptation to use it, and this is an intrusion into the Creator's plans.
    We all know about predictions, clairvoyants, fortune tellers. The easiest way to say that this is quackery, tsiganshchina, a way to make money. But that was at all times when a person lived. There is no better verification than time, and it provides countless confirmations. And nothing is a better advertisement, guarantee and confirmation than word of mouth. Survivability is determined by utility. Yes, there is such a thing, a person WANTS TO believe. Many people use it. But there is something else. What to believe, everyone decides for himself. You can say” I don't believe”, you can close your eyes, but the world will not disappear from this.

  92. any person living in the present remembers the past plans the future and all this happens at the same time! It seems to me that this is actually the case , 🙂

  93. Because he was a thinking person. Because I understood ( or intuitively felt) – the concept of time is a very “slippery” category, a purely human concept is the perception of a continuum. Outside of our consciousness, everything loses its meaning (for us)… And our understanding of this continuum is up to the star!

  94. The past manifests itself in our experience and accumulated knowledge.

    The present is the affairs of the current time.

    The future is our goals and objectives that we plan for.

    Experience and knowledge+ current affairs + plans for the future, really exist simultaneously.

  95. Well, it wasn't just Einstein who talked about it.If the future can be predicted by having b's dreams with immediate events that then occur,then it is logical to assume that the future exists simultaneously with the present.

  96. There was such a super-duper Italian scientist in the Stalinist USSR – Robert Ludvigovich Bartini. According to him, the main thing he did was to prove the existence of the Creator. In the meantime, he taught our leading aircraft designers how to design and build airplanes. Well, I built it myself.

    So, in his formula of God, there is a side theme in which the three-dimensionality of time is obvious. That is, time is the same volume as space and all times exist simultaneously, here and now. The fact that we perceive it in such a peculiar way is only our problem, either with the sensors, or with the software something is wrong, or, on the contrary, it should be so.

    You can illustrate with an example from space – we perceive all three dimensions, a blind person-only what can be felt or tapped with a wand, i.e. a little more than 2x are available to him, and in a very peculiar way.

    Either Bartini and Einstein crossed paths somewhere, or Einstein heard something somewhere, but this statement should be taken directly, not as hyperbole or humor.

    By the way, this theory easily explains all sorts of deja vu, foresight, predictions, divination, predictions of science fiction writers and so on.

  97. IT'S ELEMENTARY … Initially, our consciousness existed in the present… But, as the mind “developed”, we began to dream about the past and the future… All this is recorded in the subconscious mind… It's easier for the brain-the subconscious mind does everything by itself… And we just DEGRADE )))

  98. Because in general, the very concept of time does not exist, only we, being on earth, are attached to it. And the proof of time is death. And how to define it, the time in a different way. If a person could live forever, why would time exist as such? Something like that.

  99. In the Theory of Relativity, there is a concept of relativity of simultaneity. What does it mean that two events occurred simultaneously? That none of them could affect the other, be the cause of it. If events occurred in neighboring rooms or even on neighboring continents, then the concept of simultaneity will be very specific, just look at the clock. What if two events occurred in different stars? Then you will have to take into account the time it takes for light to cover such a distance.

    Then I sneezed, and everything that happened at a distant star for hundreds of years will have to be considered as happening no sooner and no later. At the same time.

  100. The answer lies in Einstein's most famous expression: Space-time! It doesn't distinguish them. Everyone knows that the universe, that is, space, is constantly expanding. This movement of his is time itself! This movement is constant, which means that the past, the future, and even the present are only a part of the whole and indivisible, which means that they exist simultaneously.

  101. Observing some star, we see its state that was millions of years ago, and if you move instantly to an even greater distance, we will see its earlier phase of its development. it turns out that the past can be seen depending on the distance from the object at the moment. It seems to exist in a different place, in the future I don't understand)

  102. Did he say that?. Really?.. In Russian?!.

    A correct answer requires the correct wording of the question!

    Especially in the sense of “Why”) especially “why” and “for what”))

    Just think about what you're asking!..

    otherwise it will work:

    “Albert, you bastard, where were you last night?

    • Nowhere, dear, I am always with you: both in the past and in the future and chisas)))
  103. We are not talking about infinitesimal quantities (although you might want to see this)

    It's about the unity of space-time. Einstein was a determinist and claimed that all events are already set. You can always find the point where a particular event has already occurred or is about to occur. He considered the space-time connection to be subjective, since a particular sense of space and time depends on the observer: for each person, time flows in its own way and everyone is at a particular point in space at a particular moment. Of course, we are not talking about the fact that time and space objectively do not exist, it is not so. But these parameters are always perceived by some subject. Objectively, there is an infinite “matrix” of space-time with all the outlined events, so if you look at it from the “position of God” (something higher), then there is no difference between the past, present and future

  104. Past present and future are united in one moment, because without the past there would be no present, and without the present there would be no future, everything is interconnected.

  105. Einstein asked the wrong question because at the same time, the past, present and future will not exist together, because they have different meanings.This is already going to be a flawed question.

  106. Apparently, he had his own arguments for this conclusion. I believe that we live in the recent past ( today, now), and the transition of the future to the past can be ignored because it is fleeting and elusive. Thinking about the “Theory of Predictions” I believe that the future and the past are all together, at the same time, otherwise predictions would be impossible, but they are and exactly come true ( I will not bore you with examples ). We (I ) perceive time as a vector because we do not know the future. Perhaps it's like reading a book, only we read it as characters, not as readers. Sometimes, some characters can look forward or backward and can tell what they saw, but not always understood.

  107. Most likely, he was a drug addict,because having taken what I don't know, unfortunately,at one time,he visited the past, present, and future at the same time. A familiar picture for some minds.

  108. So it is – Albert Germanych is right!! Past, present, and future exist as real parts of the universe. Material particles only move/fall from the region of the past of the universe to the region of the future of the universe. The border of these regions is the present, i.e. the present is only a transition between the past and the future.�

    Simply put, there is actually a solar system whose age is figuratively 1 billion years.years, as in reality there are all age-related modifications of the solar system and there is already a future solar system that will be in the future.�

    I think we have yet to grasp Einstein's idea of a stationary universe.�

    If we assume that there is a past, present and future of the universe-this is a stationary universe-it changes locally, without changing globally.

    I think that's what Albert Germanych was trying to explain..

  109. It seems to be quite simple. The fact is that there is only one copy of the universe at one time. The past, present, and future are all located inside this copy.

  110. You look under your feet and at the girl across the road. Under

    with your feet you can see the present, and across the road just a little

    the past. While the quantum of light flies across the road will pass

    very short, but not zero time. If sipping a beer

    you look through the telescope on Betelgeuse, then you drink beer

    in the present, and the star for several years in the past. Like this

    this is the case with the past. Einstein was lying when

    combined the past with the future. Such a makar is the future

    you won't see it. You can only go there. We need transport.

    We need a rocket. Very high speeds, comparable to

    the speed of light. If you are traveling for a long time, you can

    to return. Where to? Back in the past. On your birthday

    birth dates. In this past, you already know your future –

    you boarded the rocket as an adult. So the future is impossible

    observe, you can only remember it or bring it back

    for example, the hat in which they landed in a rocket. The old man is very

    disingenuous about the future. Here's a look. You were a little hasty.

    You arrived early, earlier than your father met you

    with your mother. In my youth, my mother was beautiful and you

    they fell in love with her. As a result, who did you give birth to? Myself!

    You haven't warmed up your brain yet, have you? The future is not so easy.

    The old man was lying.

  111. Because:

    1. God exists outside of time;
    2. man is created in the image of God;
    3. learning about the world around us, a person actualizes the elements of the Divine nature in himself;
    4. crooks, occultists, and ignoramuses try to obscure point 3 in your mind.)
  112. It's simple-it's a theory. Yes, according to the theory, if a material body with a mass is accelerated to the speed of light, then everything will be so…

    But, in order to disperse the body, for example, of a man on a space scooter, you will have to invest, spend, burn the energy of which is equal to the recumbent eight (8), that is, burn the entire universe.
    Is it worth thinking about the event that can happen if you have to burn everything and even you?

  113. Time does not move anywhere the hands of the clock move and we are relative to each other, our molecules in space . planets are relative to each other, the ether is twisted into bagels and spirals forming new quarks and mesons expending the energy of the physical vacuum and time is stationary, it is always. and everywhere its motion is not fixed without the movement of matter. there is no other way to explain foresight, deja vu, and instant technological breakthroughs that are not conditioned by anything. Imagine that you are a reasonable stone and the discreteness of your perception is different from 24 frames per second will you notice a bison passing by will you be able to perceive the change of seasons as a stone to understand the PASSAGE of time?

  114. Because there's really no time. We call time the comparison of different processes of development, for example, human life and the movement of planets, measuring the development of human life in the number of revolutions of the Earth around its axis, the Sun, etc. Therefore, time for one person stretches long, and for another quickly – the process of changes in life (himself) compared to the day, year, etc.

    The past, present, and future are a collection of states, not events. Events – not essential, states are important. For one person, a car breakdown is a waste, a negative, for another-it is an occasion to change the car, a push into joyful vibrations. Curb – what emotions do you feel? No, and in memory it is not reflected either in the past or in the future. But a beautiful border, unusual, carved, green, destroyed, dangerous, etc. affects our perception, through emotions/states.

    If there is no time, then there is only one moment. The past is only a memory. The future is a desire to learn new things. We perceive the movement from the already known to the unknown as a process of life flowing from the past to the future. We compare this process with the movement of the planet – “when I was 35 years old, the Earth turned around the Sun 4,545,037 times”, “and I was born when the Earth turned around the Sun 4,545,002 times”. This correlation is due to the fact that it remains in the same field of vibrations with the Earth, which by the year 4,545,032 of the revolution around the Sun have such and such a frequency, i.e. the birth of this person corresponded perfectly to the vibrations of the Earth at that time. In fact, the movement is not based on time, but on vibrations.

    The past and future are illusory. We consider the past to be what we already were (what our memory remembers) – “I already felt myself in such and such conditions, this is who I am in them”, the future to be what we were not yet (there is no personality in our memory) – “I still want to know myself like this and look at myself in such and such conditions”. The memory of what I was like (the layering of inner emotions-states in a series of now moments) define us in the now. From now on, a request is born for what I can/want to be/feel like. I want – there is something new, not experienced before. I can, as far as I am allowed to feel different – freedom from internal emotions (a set of beliefs “I am so-and-so”).

  115. Everything in this world is an illusion . Day and night don't exist. It's just the Earth spinning. There is only time… By the way, the most valuable thing that a Person has. In this time, there is only the here and now. But humanity has come up with what is yesterday and tomorrow.

  116. Because time consists of moments and the moment is the shortest, shortest segment, because we just thought, stepped, being in the present and then we are already in the future and that trace or thought in the past … something like that.�

  117. In general, there may be such an answer. Don't listen to what Einstein says. He's not a genius. This was an ordinary person of that time,. He was curious, eager for self-realization, a great visionary, but not particularly intelligent. In physics, he said a lot of funny nonsense, which he either just made up or copied from others.

  118. What happens in a day, an hour, a minute, or even a second is the future. What happened yesterday, an hour, a minute, or a second ago is the past. What is happening right now is real. That is, the future constantly turns into the present, and the present becomes the past, so now, and the future, and the present and the past.

  119. Imagination builds a material object in a space that we cannot see, and we do not yet see it materialized, but this does not mean that the object does not exist. It is already built in the mental space, and this is more significant than the subsequent materialization. Past events are also stored in space and can be read by spiritually developed people.Both the past and the future can be changed within certain limits.

  120. Einstein was wrong. I was wrong because there was no understanding of Maya during Einstein's lifetime = Brahmana Virtual Reality = Divine VIDEO or Cinema in a simplified sense today. The Maya of Brahman can represent both the Past, Present, and Future simultaneously. Einstein was a Clairvoyant, but his Clairvoyance was not thoroughly investigated. However, I could not investigate thoroughly in His Time of Life as we can in our time.

  121. Probably the time, shape of consistencies and properties are different, and not the same for all of us. Perhaps we figuratively move bodies in the universe at different speeds and different directions, but our beloved nature, our exoplanet, unites us all together.

  122. Everything that happens is real .. consciousness has the ability to make the past and the future .. only in it remains the past and the future… on the one hand.. with the second, despite the fact that consciousness creates a concept about the past, future and present … it is present in all at once .. since you are a dance creator of these three directions.. if you remember Enstein and look at reality … then he is still alive and does everything that he did for example thinks about his statement about the past future and present .. he understood this, but this is the side of mysticism above all else than physics … and I could not provide the facts, since this is impossible except for explanation and simple faith … you can also curb this unique phenomenon yourself ! after all, this is why a person is here to understand what is happening.. man is meaning .. all manifestations in the universe appear for this purpose what can we learn in it

  123. I just get crazy when I read the answers of psychologists, mathematicians and other “specialists”to a question that they can't even understand in principle, but they are trying to squeeze something out of themselves so that it seems to themselves (or others) important and wise.

    EVERYTHING in the universe exists simultaneously – that is, without time. Time is only a quantity that allows you to measure the process and the degree of change in the energy states of the system. As such , THERE is NO TIME! And accordingly, there is no past, no present, no future! These are just terms! Just like TIME! they are created by man to describe how the world that he perceives is changing, and in fact how the person himself is changing. But not in time! IT simply VIBRATES at different frequencies, interacting with other energy systems. And all these vibrations ARE THERE.

    EVERYTHING exists in all states at once, and our consciousness only moves from point to point, like a flashlight illuminating “reality”for itself.�

    Do you really have to be an Einstein to understand this??

  124. Because the fate of a person is pre-plotted in advance. There are a million options for his fate. He's driving his own destiny NOW. The curbside road is his PAST. A person can only move forward into the FUTURE. PAST experience is its CURBS. Beyond the curbs are MILLIONS OF SUDBY OPTIONS. There is only one STRAIGHT road.

  125. Time is a relative concept. “We” gave it three forms. But no matter how you look at it, time exists only in the present. There is only a moment between the past and the future, and this moment is called life. “We” came up with a reference system for the convenience of life, such as a clock, calendar, and SO on. Time is only in our mind. ☯

  126. Because it all depends on us. For example, the Past was once the present and we made such a choice and here . And the future depends on the present.� And the present unites them simultaneously.

  127. You haven't read General Relativity,

    There are only a few postulates about the simultaneity of events,

    constant speed and rectilinear propagation of light,


    In different reference systems, an outside observer can see simultaneous events at different times , do not show your ignorance, read carefully , you have seen enough science fiction..

    Thanks for your attention

  128. I don't know what Albert said when he was flying on the rod, synchronizing the clock, trying to impose on everyone his feelings about time dilation. But I think this is a false statement. “Past”, “present”, “future” cannot exist, because time is not a material object. Only matter that moves (changes) can exist. It is this moving (changing) matter (the world) that we feel with our senses, at every current moment, and realize as “present”. And in the very next moment, we continue to feel changes in matter and at the same time recall (abstractly imagine) the same matter (world) as it was a moment ago (in the “past”), and immediately abstractly imagine (anticipate) it in the next upcoming moment (in the “future”). And here is this process (Lat. processus “flow, progress, promotion”) the constant change(movement) of the material world is felt (observed) and understood by a person as the passage of time. This is the so-called sense of time, or awareness of time. Matter exists independently of our consciousness, and the process of its change is motion (the passage of time) also does not depend on us. Imagine that we are in consciousness, but no external changes of matter are felt in the environment, let there be complete peace, eyes are closed, darkness, but the human consciousness continues to feel itself as a material living object (the movement of matter continues) awareness of time continues. Then consciousness shuts down, we sleep and do not feel the movement of matter and are not aware of the passage of time. But matter (the entire universe) continues its eternal movement along with our unconscious body from the past to the future. And when we wake up, it feels like a moment has passed (only blinked once), and by the changes in the world (and there are no stars in the sky and the sun is already high) we realize that many moments have passed, it turns out that the process of matter movement (the passage of time) was long. But how to quantify the duration of the process of changing (moving) matter, of course, by another changing (moving) matter, which is called a clock. If when measuring the duration of a material process, using another material process (clock) in one position ( at rest), a certain result is obtained, and when moving close to the speed of light, a different result can be obtained(although this is not experimentally confirmed). This can only mean that as a result of such a movement of the object, there is a change in the flow rate of the measured material process or in the speed of the material process of the clock itself. And time itself can't speed up or slow down, it's not material, and Albert certainly shouldn't have pinned it to space. But about the materiality of space itself, we should continue to feel in search of the legendary ether.

  129. Always and everywhere there is only now.

    Now, there are two time zones between us and you have 11 pm on February 24, and I have 1 am on February 25. And it seems that when one of us has “now”, the other has “then ” or”then”. In fact, we both have a “NOW”right now.

    If I dial your number right now and call you, you'll answer right now. And I'll hear your “Ale!” right now. Not after two hours of waiting until one o'clock in the morning on February 25. 🙂

    Always and everywhere there is only NOW.

    My “was” and your “will” are happening now. There is no other time but NOW.

  130. and why did this idiot separate the past present and future into simultaneity?! everything and everything is in the moment now , there is no time, there are only changes in space , I personally do not see anything else, neither the future nor the past ! these are just school concepts, and the sooner a person understands this, the easier it will be to live, and will not be in the illusions of some times, but will be alive in the present with all his attention .Time is not relative , it does not exist in nature , it is only a subjective concept and nothing more superfluous /so that this old man only complicated simple things,. stein

  131. If we consider it relative to any person, for example, then for this person at any given time there is a past, present and future. It would be strange if something from this time chain was missing.
    And we can't even talk about how quickly the future turns into the past.

  132. Einstein was so brilliantly mistaken in his ideas about the laws of nature that many people accepted this genius as the absolute truth. In the phrase about the past, present and future, one feels the shadow of a space-time continuum, in which the past, present and future are analogous to the spatial width, depth and height that exist simultaneously. In all this, one feels a lack of understanding of the physical essence as SPACE. so IS THE TIME.

  133. If the moments of the past,present, and future are placed in this sequence and the distance is reduced to an infinitesimal segment tending to zero, then these points in the limit will tend to one…

  134. It seems to me that Einstein was talking about his subjective sensation that existed in his perception. I have it too. Sometimes it seems to me that everything that was in the past or will be in the future with me or with someone or with something in the universe somewhere exists in another universe or another world inaccessible to us. Somewhere there is the Soviet Union, somewhere the Macedonian Army is storming fortresses, etc. All this exists but in other dimensions. Einstein thought about the many worlds and their diversity. Worlds separated by time are also one of the varieties of worlds, so their number is infinite. It seems to me that Einstein could not prove it mathematically, but subjectively he was sure of it.

  135. Because � that �if �have �person � erase �memory �, �that �past �just �disappears . �And �second �time �not �has �reverse �stroke �, �stop �even �on �second �. �Stop �work �heart �themselves �know �to �what �leads � to �loss � future� �and� this� �. The future is also proportional to the past.

  136. Everything is simply explained by vector transformations and the invariance of the interval in 4-dimensional space (ct, x, y, z) if anyone is interested, read here fini3.ru

  137. You won't believe it, but Augustine Aurelius spoke about this in the 4th century A.D. Einstein rediscovered it already on scientific grounds.�

    The point is that time, as a sequence of past-present-future events, exists only in our human perception. For us, the present is where we are, our perception. But even the present is different for everyone, because the other perceives from his place in the world is not at all what I perceive, for example. Now imagine that any moment in time in the so-called “past” or “future” is just another present of someone else. It's just that we are not there, and therefore it seems to us that this “already” or “still” does not exist.

    Thus, all moments of time are equally real. And all this is described by a mathematical formula.
