“The Book of Time” / Memorable Fancies #3030

[“Most people believe in life after death,” says psychologist Jamin Halberstadt, at the University of Otago, New Zealand; even [many] atheists do.” – New Scientist]

Now, how is that? The only way I can see this working, is if we have a mistaken notion of time.

Suppose that all time always exists – all times are always “present.” Something like a database that’s accumulating all the data and they’re never erased. Each of us occupies a few petabytes somewhere in that file, which expands as needed. Memories of us in other people, and other evidence of our existence, occupy more.

Our having been, ever, always was and is fine print in the book of time.

It’s a pretty thin existence, for sure; but at least it might be true.
